Comfort

“Comfort is the great human gift that creates community.  Those who come together in mutual vulnerability are bound together by a new strength that makes them into one body.”

This quote is from Henri Nouwen, a Dutch-born Catholic priest and spiritual writer who worked at the L’Arch Community in Toronto.

And this is the vision statement of the Society for Oncology Massage (through which I am a “preferred provider”):

To ease the journey through cancer.

In these two statements I see a deep relationship and resonance which guides my practice.
