Event Details

Cuddle Party is a 3 1/2 hour workshop experience 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.

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 Cuddle Party’s. Self-care is a cornerstone of Cuddle Party experience.

As seen on CBS’s the DR’S -

Cuddle Party is a formal, non-sexual event that offers participants an opportunity to explore intimacy with like-minded others. In a relaxed environment, that upholds personal boundaries and maintains a professional atmosphere, at all times, one is encouraged to engage in communication and touch, in a non-threatening, share-affirming environment.

Cuddle Party 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. Come cuddle with us!

Afterwards, Peter will take you on a trek, an adventure through movement and connection, both inward and outward as he takes us on a journey that has destination stops at each element. Music is selected to take you through each of the five elements.

We will begin in earth, starting out very grounded and connected to the earth, moving slow and connected to our root chakra, then speeding up a little bit as we move into the water element, asking people to be more fluid in their movements as the music speeds up a bit. Then we will get hot and chaotic as we move into fire, moving vigorously and shaking out all our last bits of stagnate energy. Then we lighten up and move into the air element, moving softly and lightly, and finally float into either getting super light and finally into stillness. I have researched great music that represents each element so people can dive deep into their elemental dance. And through out the dance I will be giving instruction and give people to chance to do partner exercises with one another.  Then we'll give you some sets to do estatic dance.

About Cuddle Party from Monique:

I have facilitated 100′s of Cuddle Parties. I am as passionate about the Cuddle Party experience today, as I was the first one, over five years ago. YES! It helped me reclaim my voice and I am passionate about helping others do the same.

Cuddle Party experiences teach participants, they alone create their own safety container. How did it change my life? When I was growing up and received a NO, it felt like I was being rejected. The result was my emphasis on being nice, being lovable and being unconditionally available. The profound learning came when I realized my unyielding YES’s became a subconscious inability to trust another person’s YES, without their own personally vocalized NO!

I am very appreciative and honored by the courage shown by those who have clear boundaries, and an ability to voice their YES and NO decisions without guilt, shame or fear. It gives me the confidence to ask for what my own heart desires, instead of censoring myself, knowing the receiver of my request has the voice and courage to embrace or withdraw, based on their own perimeters. “Thank you for taking care of your self”


Peter Petersen will be offering Qigong at the beginning of our Cuddle Party :)
