Geoff Sharp

Do you shake hands before and after you mediate?

You should.

Or maybe even a light, comforting touch on an elbow or forearm during a stressful session?

Not convinced? Well then, have a read of How Touch Sustains Personal and Business Relationships

'The oxytocin system, which can be fired up by touch, allowed us, in ancient times, to enter into economic exchange with others. Even in today's global economy, touch is vitally important to doing business. Our feelings about someone else, and the pleasure we feel in cooperating, is the foundation for trade with others. And it all starts with a handshake'.
