  2. The Hand-Heart Connection

    January 11, 2019, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM @ Bemis Hall

    Join Catherine Collins RN, MS, QTTT (Qualified Therapeutic Touch Teacher) January 11 at 1 pm at Bemis Hall to learn about a “profoundly simple” way to connect to a loved one when a verbal interaction is difficult or impossible. Developed by a hospice nurse and therapeutic touch practitioner, this technique is a way to “be with” someone who has suffered a loss such as health, a relationship or is at the end of life. Simply being next to the person and using your hand to connect to their heart and be present is a powerful way to send compassion. It benefits both the recipient and the person offering the hand heart connection. ANYONE can learn this technique! We will watch a video about the technique and have an opportunity to practice and ask questions.
