Mary Ann Konarzewski is a poet, writer, and massage therapist. Her life's mission is to bring more peace, love, healing, and joy in those wounded places that need it the most. She is a lover of animals, nature, books, and classical Indian dance. She is a world traveler with a passion for India, as well as a bit of a mystic who adores Rumi, ee cummings, and Tagore. She lives with her husband in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lisa Bakewell lives her life with passion and a never-ending quest for knowledge, adventure, and personal challenge. Lisa loves traveling, parenting (two boys, 28 and 19), being a wife (of 30 years), and making this world a better place by offering support, encouragement, positive vibes, and—most of all—love. Seeking healing from addiction and abuse in 1979, Irene Smith found the workshops of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, the world's foremost authority on death and dying. A deep bond was formed. Irene became a hospice massage volunteer and traveled worldwide establishing massage projects for persons with AIDS. Irene teaches touch as a way of honoring the sacredness of life. Touching the dying is her practice. contributors Lauren Cates is a sucker for humans. Well, and dogs. Good food is one of the driving forces in Lauren's decision to get out of bed every day, as well as a personal credo that "a day without puns is a day wasted." Lauren's deepest wish is that massage therapists would stop fighting with each other on Facebook. music inspires you 914-312-1686 14 m a s s a g e & b o d y w o r k m a r c h / a p r i l 2 0 1 8
