When you touch someone it should be special. You should be centred and present and fully engaged with the part of the body you are touching. Conscious touch is loving, present, relaxing, and expansive. All touch should be conscious. Unconscious touch, touching a person while your mind is elsewhere really doesn’t feel very nice.
"Your body is your ground metaphor for life, the expression of your existance. It is your bible, your encyclopedia, your life story. Everything that happens to you is stored and reflected in your body. Your body knows. Your body tells. The relationship to your self to your body is indivisible, inescapable, unavoidable.
