Event description

Description

A Dose of Oxy[tocin] brings together people from different walks of life to explore connection together. Whether you’re in a relationship(s) or in-between them, this workshop will help you build essential skills for consent, connection and communication with those you care about most.

Human beings need to connect to one another. Even in loving relationships, miscommunication can happen, leading to disconnect. When it does, we often feel lonely, isolated, stressed and/or unhappy with our lives. The stronger our communication, boundary, and listening skills are, the stronger our connections to one another can grow.

The good news is that this short workshop will help you learn (or reinforce) the skills you need! Not only that, but at the end of the workshop, you get to connect with the other folks at the workshop (if desired) and practice the skills we talked about. Together, we will build a culture of consent and enjoy a little oxy[tocin], without the pressures of dating or a romantic relationship. We'll do this by using our communication skills to explore PG rated touch (like hand massages and the kind of cuddling you do with your dog).

At A Dose of Oxy[tocin] you can:

• Learn useful skills about consent - how to ask for what you want and how to receive the answer

• Experience a community of consent-savvy and interesting individuals

• Experience what it's like to get an oxytocin high (oxytocin is a bonding hormone that our bodies naturally produce)

• Express yourself

• Practice making your own authentic choices and build confidence around those choices

• Do nothing and observe if you want! Just being there is participation.

Reserve your spot now!

A Dose of Oxy[tocin] Itinerary

3:45 PM - Doors open

3:45 to 4:15 PM - Everyone arrive, check in, change into snuggly clothes, grab a snack, socialize

4:15 PM – Doors Close. If you are not here by 4:15, you will not be able to participate.

4:15 PM – 5:15 PM – Welcome Circle and Workshop. This is the most important part of the event and all attendees must be present for the whole Welcome Circle. This is where we build the skills of consensual and healthy connection!

5:15 PM - 7:00 PM - "Free-style" time where you can practice the skills we learned and socialize. Cuddling, journaling, playing games and other PG-rated activities are encouraged.

7:00 PM - 7:15 PM - Closing circle, clean-up and goodbyes.

Etiquette

ARRIVE ON TIME: The doors will close once the Welcome Circle begins.

WHAT TO WEAR: Anything that you feel comfortable in. Think elementary school slumber party, especially if you want to try cuddling.

WHAT TO BRING: Non-alcoholic beverages and/or snacks to share. You can bring any accessories that you would like to make the space cozy -- stuffed animals, blankets, pillows, whatever you would like! The only thing that you are required to bring is you and your smiles!

Things to note:

I’m trying this as a donation-based event. Suggested donation $20-25. If you have questions, email me at: vegadandelion (at) gmail.com. If you don't want to pay the ticket price listed here on eventbrite, email me and I'll send you the information you need. You can pay what you think is appropriate at the door (or via Venmo/PayPal).

Location is at a friend’s house. Eventbrite will send you the actual address once you’ve paid, or I'll send it once you email me. Sorry to be a pain, but I want to respect my friend's privacy as she's generously letting us use her home.

As always, this is an LGBT friendly event. Sadly, this is NOT a wheelchair friendly house.

Last Note: This event is based off of Cuddle Party and led by an officially trained facilitator of CuddleParty.com. Please check out the website CuddleParty.com or contact Vega for more information.

I look forward to meeting you!
