Description

WHY COME TO A CUDDLE PARTY?

* BECAUSE people who, for whatever reason, are not getting the touch that they want, need and deserve in their lives can get it without being ashamed or embarrassed about being proactive in taking care of themselves. Think – like gym or yoga studio .. it’s a Cuddle Party studio

* BECAUSE you can receive the nourishing, non-sexual touch you want (and none that you don’t!) and deserve.

* BECAUSE as one participant recently said "this nonsexual touch was better than all the sexual touch I’ve had in the past 10 years."

Cuddle Party is a no risk experience. We start with a fun and interactive workshop introducing the rules of the Cuddle Party which are all about communication and consent see http://www.cuddleparty.com/rules. If, at the end of that, you don't think it is for you, you can leave with a full refund. Also, there is no pressure to touch others at anytime during the party. Conversation, or even just watching, is full participation.

Join us as we have fun learning how to:

* Communicate boundaries, preferences & desires with ease.

* Get comfortable with what has been uncomfortable in the past.

* Receive the nourishing, non-sexual touch you want (and none that you don’t!)

* Practice making touch welcome and enjoyable.

For many of us, this can be an uncomfortable edge to explore. That's why I created my own cuddle space! My job as a trained cuddle facilitator is to guide you into these skills gently and easily, in a fun, safe and light-hearted way so that you can be comfortable. I am here to welcome you, create an atmosphere of respect, and be available during the cuddle party for questions and support.

At a Cuddle Party, you gain:

* Clarity and confidence about your wants and needs

* Lessons and practice regarding consensual touching

* Boundary and communication skills

* Comfort, support and encouragement

* The secrets to welcome, relaxed, platonic touch

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

Cuddle is not a codeword for sex and Party is not a codeword for drugs or alcohol. Cuddle Party is neither of them.

WHAT TO EXPECT

During the first hour, we create the structure and establish safe space with the Welcome Circle. We will introduce ourselves, learn about the Cuddle Party philosophy, go over the consent Agreements (like "Ask permission and get a verbal Yes before touching anyone", and "It's okay to change your mind at any time, for any reason"), and go through several communication and ice-breaker exercises. This is followed by a couple of hours of social snuggling time, where you will have the option to join in a group snuggle, connect with others for individual snuggles, or just sit back and watch, journal, and have a conversation. You can leave at any time, or stay until we end with a Closing Circle.

You may want to attend this Cuddle Party for a variety of reasons. Some come just to have fun and enjoy a wonderful evening of connecting with like-minded people and making new friends. Some come to safely fulfill their need for affection and nurturing touch that may be missing in their everyday life. Some appreciate the learning and personal growth aspect, having the opportunity to improve their social and communication skills, and explore ways of creating connection and closeness. Some may appreciate risking connecting with someone of the same sex (or the opposite sex, if that's your edge). Some find a beautiful element of spirituality here, and play with touch meditation, breath Tantra, eye gazing, and exploring the naturally altered state of consciousness that the "cuddling hormone" oxytocin can produce.

Snuggling can mean feet against feet, head or shoulder rubs, full-body hugs, spooning - it is entirely up to you. You can participate according to your desires and comfort level. It is perfectly ok if you just want to talk and not touch anyone for a while or not at all - YOU ARE ALWAYS AT CHOICE! Regardless of your level of physical engagement, you will have a great opportunity to meet and connect with other people in a safe and relaxing environment.
