work, while cooking food, folding laundry, or taking care of the yard, while playing music, and while
chatting with another while waiting in line. We want to surrender to life as “meditation in motion”. We want
to touch others and invite others to join us in this way of being and living.

touched and to touch others. Touch isrelational. The act of physically connecting with another person or object often
transcends the boundaries of our skin. It moves into us, “touching our heart”, “touching our spirit”.

most important relationships with life.
We invite you to touch us with your life, and to join us on this
