Tonight in tween yoga the girls ended by giving and receiving massages from one another. It was so neat to watch them connect, laugh and nurture each other through massage.
It’s necessary for humans to connect with each other as well as nurture one another. As children we are not afraid to do this, but once we grow older we create resistances around touch. What makes one so afraid to connect or touch another? I like this quote:
‘When we know ourselves to be connected to all others, acting compassionately is simply the natural thing to do.’
