I removed the "stated purpose" you wrote so I could rewrite the entry so it is more geared (hopefully) toward accomplishing that purpose. And who knows -- entries tend to grow like plants, not like buildings, so they accumulate multiple purposes over time under a given subject. A year from now, there might be a handful of groups that meet locally listed there, and the entry has a different focus at that point. At the very least I did a couple Google searches and found a few people who were at the ["Whole Earth Festival"] that list Energy Healing in their bios and a group that meets up in Sacramento. --["Users/JabberWokky"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Users/Sankofa416http://daviswiki.org/Users/Sankofa4162008-07-24 17:26:37ZacharyNorwood <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Users/Sankofa416<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 10: </td> <td> Line 10: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ''2008-07-24 14:10:42'' [[nbsp]] Surprisingly, there are quite a few studies exploring so-called "therapeutic touch" practices that came up from my search in Web of Science. No findings from reputable journals demonstrate any evidence of healing beyond the placebo effect level. One article tested practitioners' claim to 'sense' the energy field of others and found that their ability is only randomly successful: "Their failure to substantiate TT's most fundamental claim is unrefuted evidence that the claims of TT are groundless and that further professional use is unjustified" (Rosa L et al., ''Journal of the American Medical Association'', 279:13). I would guess that there is a natural, therapeutic advantage found in intimate touching—part of our limbic regulation is tied to feeling connected with others—although I would hope everyday relationships and friendships would suffice. If for some intimacy cannot be found interpersonally, then perhaps paying for it is a rational short-term solution. However from my vantage, ''Quantum Touch'' seems like another scheme designed to capitalize on people's medical problems. Why not take a restorative yoga course, instead? That way you’ll get some exercise and a sense of connectedness without having to opt into any faith healing paradigms. --["Users/ZacharyNorwood" ZN]</span> </td> <td> <span>+ ''2008-07-24 14:10:42'' [[nbsp]] I moved my other comment to the main page, where I had intended to post it before it was deleted. I should add, here, since this is your personal page, that I understand the need for intimate contact, and I imagine from experience that it affords real health benefits, but only indirectly, from the psychological benefit of feeling supported by others, like you see when someone with an optimistic outlook can live longer when facing cancer. I responded to your query about yoga on my page. Cheers. --["Users/ZacharyNorwood" ZN]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Users/Sankofa416http://daviswiki.org/Users/Sankofa4162008-07-24 14:12:22ZacharyNorwood <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Users/Sankofa416<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 10: </td> <td> Line 10: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ''2008-07-24 14:10:42'' [[nbsp]] Surprisingly, there are quite a few studies exploring so-called "therapeutic touch" practices that came up from my search in Web of Science.

I agree with Jason that the comments are pretty harsh for a greeting. Nobody should have to deal with walking into a new room, stating their beliefs and perspective and being immediately mocked. That said, most people will defend your right to speak... and their right to reply, no matter how tactless the replies are. I restored the comments you deleted because of that. At the same time, those two are creating a fairly hostile environment for people in the Davis community to discuss their beliefs (''hint hint, should one of those people be reading this and wish to rephrase their replies as less antagonistic and more informational''). Usually people are more warmly welcomed -- and different concepts and ideas within the community more accepted when presented. ["Welcome to the wiki"], and it's good to see somebody adding a new slice of Davis to the wiki. --["Users/JabberWokky" Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards]<br> + --["Users/JabberWokky"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Users/Sankofa416http://daviswiki.org/Users/Sankofa4162008-07-21 19:51:35JasonAllerWelcome to the Wiki <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Users/Sankofa416<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ''This editor can edit this entry and tell us a bit about themselves by clicking the Edit icon.''<br> + <br> + [[Comments]]<br> + <br> + ''2008-07-21 19:48:49'' [[nbsp]] ["Welcome to the Wiki"].
