A life devoid of touch

Maka'ala and Baby Lei connect

Barbara....as inspired by your presentation at Meeting today.

Touch is extremely important and is part of being human. If a baby is born premature, one of the ways that increases its chances of living is by human touch.

The simple act of touch allows us to connect between couples, friends, and others with whom we want to form a closer relationship.

A life devoid of touch is one devoid of life.

Mahalo Dan for your insight
by: Barbara Helynn Heard

Mahalo for sharing Dan!!! I appreciate your thoughts. Yes indeed, animals have much to teach us.

Touch nourishes me on all levels, body,mind, heart and spirit. And I love sharing that with others.

I hope to meet you at a lomilomi event someday. smile!

Touch is a necessity of life
by: Dan Cohen

We are social animals yet we have created societies that shun touching each other. Watch birds or any other mammal and see how much time is spent in pairs or groups socially grooming each other. For us humans social groomers are professionals, the hair dresser, cosmotoligist, massage therapist. There are many. From pre-birth to death we are in need of touch. Find someone to hold, to groom, to be close to. Don't be afraid it won't hurt (unless of course you allow romance to cloud it). It is not for your heart, do it for your spirit.
