When you sit before another
And look into their eyes
When you breathe into your heart
And feel the love that dwells there
When you touch another with that love
With wonder, with curiosity
With a sense of the sacred
You’re in the presence of the Divine
Your touch, your stroke, your caress
Is the story of the elements of your body
There is a conversation of skin and bones, of blood and nerves
Of earth and air and fire and water
There is a story and a poem
There is art
There is a dance of sensual delight
And wonder at the curves and plains
There is texture and sensation
There is fragrance and breath
There is an eternal moment
That flows into the stream of life
And becomes one with everything
There is a hand
That strokes your body
From your toes to your head
And feels your skin, your bones
It feels where you’re open and soft
And where you’re tight and closed
It feels your heat and your cold
It feels the places you show
And it feels your secrets
This touch is love
This touch is worship
Our bodies, in giving and receiving, in sharing, are expressions of the Divine.
Our bodies tell our story, everything that’s happened to us, everything we’ve done, the memories of generations we carry, are in the body.
There are ways of touching, ways of massaging that become prayer and meditation, healing and pleasure, release and opening.
There are ways of touching that become pathways to deeper states of consciousness.
There are ways of touching, giving that become pathways to presence.
There are ways of touching that are the expression of the sacred erotic.
There are ways of touching that take us beyond time and space into oneness.
Touch is a lifelong journey of exploration, of experiencing, of learning, of feeling, of sensing.
There is an invitation in the body to visit the places we never have, and an invitation to experience ourselves differently.
There is an invitation to deep intimacy, with ourselves and another.
There is an invitation in the conversation of our skin for us to know each other beyond words.
There is an invitation for us to love.
I’ve been exploring and teaching Touch and Massage for over 25 years.
I continue to be amazed at the limitless possibilities these bring us.
I invite you to share…
