We all need hugs.  

On the SFgate.com today is a story of an Indian guru who gives hugs:

Mata Amritanandamayi, known to her followers as Amma, the hugging saint, sat in a Castro Valley prayer hall for hours on a throne decorated with silk flowers, accepting flowers and fruit and drawings before giving everyone -- from babes in arms to elderly supplicants -- a hug.
