Cordy Anderson, Retired RN, BSN, QTTT: I am now "retreaded", a term I learned from Dr. Dolores Krieger. Graduating as a nurse in 1969, I have now been a nurse for over fifty years. Health care settings included public health, pediatrics, home health, and hospice. Therapeutic Touch was easily integrated into my nursing practice starting in 1984. Teaching TT has become a passion since 1990, second only to spending time with my grand children. I am willing to travel to teach Therapeutic Touch and in addition to teaching in Oregon and Washington, have taught in Minnesota, New Mexico and in Tennessee in 2020.


Bev Forster, Retired RN, QTTT, I have been a nurse since 1965, a hospice nurse for 30+ of those years. I incorporated Therapeutic Touch into my nursing practice in 1985 and have used it primarily with hospice patients for comfort, pain relief and symptom management. Most importantly, to facilitate one's connection to their very own inner self and wholeness. Now that I am retired, I continue to provide TT as a hospice volunteer and to family and friends, what a gift...to myself and others. I continue to learn and grow through the practice of TT as I deepen my connection to my inner self and the Oneness we all are.
