Wednesday, May 13, 2020, 10:30-11:30 a.m.  Mindful Touching As A Means of Comfort. 

Instructor: Irene Smith, Hospice Massage Practitioner and Author


The current loss of our usual comforting strategies, due to the onset of Covid-19, may lead to depression, fatigue and or anxiety. Mindful Touching as a self-comforting tool can be grounding, centering, and nurturing as well as easily integrated into any daily routine.   Irene Smith is considered the founding visionary of the hospice massage field having introduced massage into hospice care on the West Coast in 1982. As the founder of Everflowing, Irene is an internationally respected author, educator, and practitioner in the field of Mindful Touching.  Irene has taught health care providers Mindful Touching for over three decades, creates educational resources utilized by health care institutions worldwide and holds a private hospice massage practice in San Francisco. As an assistant to the late Elisabeth Kubler- Ross MD, Irene brings extraordinary depth and wisdom to her work.
