About

 

It Makes Sense is a non profit organization helping people to deal with anxiety through a fun and sensuous experience.

We facilitate workshops in universities, organizations and conferences around the world. Through this unique methodology participants use the sense of touch to connect with powerful and soothing memories.

In collaboration with our global network of artists these stories are transformed into beautiful art pieces, providing participants with a tangible tool to deal with anxiety anytime, anywhere.

Let's get started

 

1 Pick 6 different textures

We are surrounded by dozens of them everywhere we are, you simply need to go and collect them. Here is our suggestion: Cotton balls, rubber bands, leather, sandpaper, fur, and glass. 

2 Close your eyes 

We recommend to use a blindfold. Then take a few deep breaths. 

3 Touch

Pick one texture at a time and play around with it. Feeling its sensation with you fingertips, hands, arms and face.

4 Pick one

Pick the one you are most drawn to at this moment. Don’t analyze why, just pick it.

5 How do you feel?

How does this texture make you feel? Where do you feel this sensation in your body? Does it remind you of something? 

6 Write it down

Write these thoughts and feelings down. Throughout the day keep the texture close to you, touch it and write down anything that comes to your mind, body and soul.

For many of participants, taking the time to mindfully interact with touch in this way was illuminating. It brought up forgotten memories. For some, it was quite emotional.

After intense and advanced study, research, and personal experiences, SVA graduates Rinat Sherzer and Rodrigo Muñoz found a way to make anxiety tangible.

Sherzer and Muñoz call their company and unique approach to helping with anxiety It Makes Sense. As a means of therapy, people with anxiety are able to anonymously go through a process that will make them feel all the feelings in a really satisfying way.
