    Thank you for the many of you who have written, “Hey! Are you still out there? It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from you!” I am sorry for the many unanswered e-mails and the largely inactive Facebook page over the past year or …

    My Very Last Blog (well, maybe!)

    Those of you who know me (and perhaps a few of you who don’t) have sensed that the way I carry Touch Practice has changed over this past year. I have changed too. This might be the last time I ever write in “blog” format …

    Checkout Time: Touch Practice and Dissociation

    0

    One of the wonderful things that can happen during a Touch Practice session is that the person I am working with becomes so comfortable and relaxed, he drifts off to sleep and naps while I hold him.  Sometimes it is actual sleep, complete with purring, …

    My favorite moment in my undergraduate ethics class came one day during this exchange: “How many of you feel that killing other people is evil?” (all hands went up) “How many of you feel that Hitler was an evil person?” (all hands went up) “If you …

    Dying for Affection

    I just finished holding someone from the Middle East who is here in the US for graduate school. Like all the people I hold, he is a beautiful guy, open-hearted, with deep, soulful eyes, thoughtful, curious. It was really a beautiful session, longer than most, almost …

    Our Next Workshop

    3

    There has been quite a flurry of communication about our next workshop—a workshop intended for experienced practitioners—and much of that discussion has centered on the issue of naked practice. It is a conversation that has caused me to wrestle, intellectually, and given me reason to …
