PLEASURE COACH DAVID BROWER
Who is David Brower? David Brower is a pleasure coach who has mastered the art of savoring all of the pleasures of life fully.
He goes by the Sensorial guy and he wants us all to learn to lean more into our natural senses and all the fruits of life to bring those senses more and more into each and every moment.
On episode #43 of the Blossom Your Awesome Podcast I am talking to Pleasure coach David Brower.
David shows people how to savor the pleasures in life fully in each and every moment.
Teaching people that slowing down helps us savor more of the sensorial pleasures all around us.
Growing up in Beverly Hills was posh, but then he moved to Paris and has been there for 30 years sulking in the savory and sensorial magnificence of the romantic city.
A culinary hub of sorts Paris offers extraordinary cuisine which makes for exceptional sensorial pleasure.
He also teaches what he calls Alivefulness. It’s a means to living a more energized and empowered life and being fully alive.
He is a bestselling author of the book – Dance of the Love Caterpillars: An Inspirational Romantic Tale of the Adventure of Loving and Trusting Life.
David truly embodies what he teaches and lives so powerfully in the moment. He says learning to slow down through culinary delights has been an amazing process in mindfulness and learning to live more powerfully and with greater presence.
He offers us the suggestion to stop and smell the roses. And yes slow down for that wonderful meal and savor every single bite.
It was a mouth watering conversation that left me feeling joyful and inspired and a beautiful reminder to slow down.

PRACTICAL TIPS FOR SAVORING LIFE
Some practical tips for savoring that David offers are –
- Slow Down
- Make your food process ritualistic
- Learn to savor the food – sit with it, be with it, delight in it
- stop and smell the roses – yes this is an actual tip that David offers.
If you’ve got a grand parent or parent, an elderly neighbor go for a walk. It may be slow, but that will be a great catalyst to helping you yourself slow down and smell the roses.
David believes the more we do this with food the more this carries into other aspects of life. We are then able to slow down more with all of our other activities.
Life is to be lived fully and enjoyed thoroughly and I think David is really on to something here.
We can all take a moment for pause and slow down to truly live life in a way that is more pleasurable and more plausible.
