Projects > Keep In Touch

The Keep in Touch project is centered around 12 sensate focused exercises that build on each other from week to week. These exercises are mailed out on printed postcards to participants. Audio recordings will be online each week for ease of practice. For those willing to share, there will be a series of short surveys and video chats that dive deeper into the role physical contact and touch plays in everyday life and how this crisis has affected that contact.
