Event Details

Friday, January 6, 2017 4 pm (soft start time)

Do you love to cuddle with other people who know the value of a good cuddle? Do you like wearing pj's, sweats, or fuzzy socks? Then, you probably want to put Jan 6th in your calendar and make your way down to the cuddliest place you know. Don't worry, if you can't make it until after you get off work, you can still come. Let's make this year even bigger and better than last year! 


I have scoured the internet without finding a single clue as to the origin of Cuddle Up Day. I do know that it is a national holiday! It has been around for at least a couple of years. It is always celebrated on Jan. 6th. Cuddles, snuggles, and warmth are encouraged. 

Since this is a fairly new holiday, we get to define it for ourselves. I say we don our cuddle apparel and see what happens. I suspect we will be creating some new traditions in no time. 


No worries if you can't arrive by 4:30 pm. I will run through the agreements a couple of times. Once we have established a safe container, we will have a few optional connection exercises. These are a great way to get to know some of the other people in the room and explore boundaries before jumping straight into the cuddling. 

Come for the cuddles. Come for the awesome conversation. Come to check out the cuddly space. Come to show off your pj's/ Any excuse will do. This is the second annual annual celebration. Let's make it twice as good as last year! 



  1. In order to maintain a non-sexual environment, clothing stays on the whole time. Comfy clothing such as pj's/ sweats are encouraged.  
  2. Everyone involved is encouraged to make specific requests if they would like to engage in some form of touch/ cuddling. Please respond with an honest yes or no. If you are unsure, please say no. You can re-visit this request later if you like. 
  3. If you feel uncomfortable/ need to shift positions at any time, please let your cuddle buddy/ buddies know right away.

I am a certified professional cuddler and workshop facilitator who enjoys connecting with people in many different ways. I enjoy giving and receiving back rubs, eye gazing, tickling, hand holding, gentle caresses, etc. Creating a unique environment/ experience based on an individual's touch needs, gives me joy. On a side note, no worries if you are not sure what you might want. I have lots of different ways that we can explore this together. I have been hosting and assisting others with cuddle parties for years, so I am definitely a well seasoned cuddler. I also facilitate events on connection, so I am confident that we will quickly feel connected. :)
