Cuddle Party is a 3.5-hour communication workshop that focuses on personal boundaries and touch, in which participants have an opportunity to practice these skills by cuddling (or not). It’s a great opportunity to practice asking for what you want, saying no to what you don’t want and meeting new people. Cuddle Party is a strictly non-sexual event. I’m certified Cuddle Party facilitator. You can read more about Cuddle Parties here: http://www.cuddleparty.com/
This event is exclusively for people who identify anywhere on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum.
Doors open at 2:00pm and close at 2:30pm. There is no admittance after 2:30pm.
Please wear pajamas or other comfy clothes.
You are invited to bring snacks or non-alcoholic beverages to share with the group (optional).
Here's what you can expect at a cuddle party: at 2:30pm there will be a welcome circle which orients guests to the rules of cuddle party and has exercises to help practice the rules. Following the welcome circle are a few hours for free-style cuddling, eating snacks, or just hanging out. The event ends with a short closing circle.
