Would you like to:

• Become empowered and build trust in your ability to take care of yourself under any circumstance?
• Honour your own experiences and emotions, as well as those of others?

The workshop is open to everyone! It is great for those who are single, and for those in a relationship. You can come with a date, come with a friend, or come by yourself.

We have an incredibly welcoming, compassionate, and caring community and we love meeting new people.

And - There’s nothing that you have to do here. This is a space of ‘get to’ not ‘have to’. You are encouraged to find and express your boundaries, which will always be honoured. We create a space that is supportive for everyone.

✶Say ‘yes’ to you!✶

~WHAT IS A CUDDLE PARTY!?~

Cuddle Party is a 3 hour experiential workshop where participants engage in communication exercises, explore touch in a non-sexual space, experience personal exploration and intimacy, and have fun with like minded friends from the community.

Cuddle Party is a formal, non-sexual event. It is a holistic, social environment, that attracts fascinating people from all walks of life. It provides a special and unique opportunity for connection, learning and growth.

You can come to a Cuddle Party to meet new people, to enjoy amazing conversations, to touch, to be touched, to have fun, to practice asking for what you want, to practice saying “no” to what you don’t want — all in a setting structured to be a safe place for exploration and enjoyment. Shucks, you can even come to a Cuddle Party just to cuddle! ♥️

~BENEFITS OF ATTENDING~

Nurturing and consensual loving touch is good for maintaining healthy blood pressure, a strong nervous system and a balanced emotional health. One’s ability to connect with and develop greater trust in others is emphasized during the group exchanges during the Cuddle Party. Self-care is a cornerstone of Cuddle Party experience.

Cuddle Party lets you:

  • Learn clear and easy ways to communicate

  • Set limits simply and straightforwardly

  • Give and receive enjoyable non-sexual touch in a safe setting, where your boundaries are respected.

At a Cuddle Party you gain:

  • Clarity and confidence

  • Boundary and communication skills

  • Comfort, support and encouragement

  • The secrets to welcome, relaxed, non-sexual touch

The skills you learn at Cuddle Party translate into every day life, right from the start. When boundaries and consent are clear, every relationship is easier.

~WHAT THE EVENING LOOKS LIKE~

We open with a Welcome Circle - about 1 hour for everyone to introduce themselves, to go over the 11 Cuddle Party rules, and to participate in a few ice-breaker exercises to help everyone get comfortable. Angela teaches communication and boundary skills in ways that are lighthearted and fun.

Then we open up for ‘free-style’ cuddling. You have plenty of time to relax, share a hug, give or recieve a back rub, have a conversation, snuggle up with friends new and old, draw, journal, laugh, practice saying 'No', or just unwind after a long day. ♥

Typically, people enjoy foot-rubs, back rubs, spooning, nuzzling, and just generally snuggling up together. Some people like to settle in for a period of time, others like to try shorter times with a variety of people.

At the end, we close with a short closing circle.

~WHO ATTENDS?~

People of all ages (18+), genders, sexual orientations, body shapes/sizes/abilities, cultural backgrounds, and relationship statuses are welcome to attend!

We usually have between 20-50 people attending each month. New people are encouraged to join. There are usually around 5-15 new people at each event. ♥️

If you are in a relationship, we ask that you check in with yourself and/or your partner(s) to ensure that attending the Cuddle Party falls within your relationship agreements before attending. :)

We ask that you come with a thoughtful and open mind; A fun-loving, compassionate, and non-judgmental attitude; And a willingness to act with integrity in a conscious and mindful way.



Want to join us? Awesome! Here are the event details:

TIME: Doors open at 6:30pm, registration is complete by 6:50. The doors are locked and event starts at 7:00pm sharp. The cuddle party comes to a close at 10pm.

ARRIVE ON TIME: The opening Welcome Circle is for introductions and to go over the rules of Cuddle Party. This is an important aspect of the Cuddle Party experience and creates a safe container for all participants. It is essential that everyone be on time.

LOCATION: The event is happening at Scarboro Community Centre, 1727 14 Ave SW, Calgary, AB. The doors and a large parking lot are located on the South side, beside the tennis courts - which is accessible via 15th Avenue. Please use the parking lot, as we don’t want to take up the residential parking spaces on the street.

WHAT TO WEAR: Comfortable, non-binding, clothing (sweat pants, loose cotton, pajamas, onesies: think comfy, not sexy). This will be a shoe-free environment, so please bring and wear clean socks if you are worried about your feet getting cold. Please avoid using strong scents, as some people are sensitive to them.

WHAT TO BRING: Yourself! Exactly as you are. We will be providing everything needed for the cuddle space, but you are welcome to bring your own blanket and pillow. Please also bring a water bottle for yourself, and some fun finger food to share with the group (if you would like).

Testimonials from others who have attended:

“This was my first Cuddle Party. It went completely beyond my expectations. Angela created such a safe and warm environment that I was totally comfortable asking for hugs, cuddles, physical touch. Knowing that people would honestly say no or yes to me gave me the freedom to comfortably approach anyone in the group. Being able to give and receive physical affection without any other expectations was incredible. At the end of the meetup I realized that I’d bonded with people in a very special and unique way. I experienced deep contentment and joy. I am definitely coming back.”

“The Cuddle Party has been life changing for me in many aspects of my life. I have learned to say no to others and to honor myself. It has been very self empowering.”

"I had the opportunity to go to a cuddle party hosted my Angela and Amber. At first I wasn't sure what to think, but as the evening progressed I was relieved to feel as safe as I did. Both Angela and Amber provided the best experience of feeling truly nurtured in the safe container of sacred space. There was no obligations or judgments from anyone and I felt very comfortable to laugh, cry and just be held safely. It was a beautiful experience that I would recommend to anyone!! Thanks again to you both for creating this space of compassionate energy! Much love."
