Description

Cuddle Party PLUS! - the next level of Cuddle Parties.

You asked for it, you’ve got it!

Join Monique and Peter for an afternoon you will never forget

By popular demand – we bring you an evening of a wider range of cuddle experiences than ever before.

Instead of just turning you loose to freeform cuddle, this special event will walk you through many different connection and consent exercises. When you are done, you will have more tools in your communication toolbox to express what feels good and what doesn’t, to ask for what you want, set boundaries, and to get your needs met.

Cuddle Party PLUS! is a social laboratory that will gently challenge you to explore and step into greater self-awareness, vulnerability, and deeper intimacy with yourself and others through a series of fun games and structured participation.

This unique opportunity will allow you to
* learn extended skills
* discover fresh courage to try new things
* stretch your boundaries
* find your source of connection and bliss
* give and receive even more touch with your fellow cuddlers than you normally would at a regular cuddle party.


The first 15 minutes will allow you to change, socialise, get settled, and Peter will start the Cuddle Party with some Qigong, then we will begin promptly at 7:45pm. No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this event. It is essential that everyone be on time so as not to disturb the flow of the evening for the rest of the group.

Love exchange $35 prepaid/ $40 at the door ($60 per pair)

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 will be offering QiGong to open our Cuddle Party space.
Peter brings his love of a moving meditation from China called Qigong.
For thousands of years people have captured the essence of these simple movements to maintain balance and to heal themselves mentally and physically. Qigong accelerates healing and has a positive clinically recognized effect on almost all physical symptoms. Qigong helps heal the physical body and release stress of the mind. By moving your body, releasing trigger points, and stimulating your circulatory system, you literally become your own massage therapist. Simultaneously these movements help release negative emotions and memories that you no longer need and allow yourself to be much more present in your "now" so in a sense you become your own psychiatrist at the same time! Come learn how to build the foundation of being your own health advocate and enjoy emotional freedom and connection to all that is!

IMPORTANT CUDDLE PARTY NOTES:

BRING: Comfortable PJS, Blankets, Pillows and any kind of soft fluff to enhance your experience.

PLEASE BE ON TIME: Make certain to account FOR TRAFFIC AND PARKING.

Doors lock at 8pm! 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.
