“At the heart of our humanity is a deep desire to feel connection: to ourselves, to others, to our lives and the world around us. The Ecstatic Embrace is a meditative hugging practice that naturally brings us into an experience of this state of connectedness, which is felt as a deep sense of safety and comfort.”
I discovered this website which outlines the healing benefits of simply receiving an embrace that can last for an hour or more. It speaks to me. Does it speak to you?
