You are invited to a very special overnight cuddle experience this New Year’s Eve!
Join us on December 31st until January 1st as we approach 2017 with an evening of connection, celebration, and gratitude. We will reflect back on 2016, and look forward to 2017, all while practicing being fully present and mindful in a safe and nurturing space. And breakfast is included!
This evening will be a workshop and party combined into one! Angela and Amber will guide you in a variety of activities and communication exercises to explore touch in a consensual, non-sexual space of personal exploration and intimacy. Create and manifest your hopes and dreams for 2017 while having fun with like-minded friends!
This event will provide lots of opportunity for nurturing and loving touch and connection and is strictly non-sexual and non-alcoholic. Come meet new people, enjoy amazing and genuine conversations, consciously touch, be touched, have fun, practice asking for what you want, practice saying “no” to what you don’t want — all in a fun, safe and structured setting for exploration and enjoyment.
What will this amazing evening look like?
We start the festivities with a Welcome Circle at 9pm. Thus providing an opportunity for introductions, a quick review of the eleven (11) Cuddle Party rules, and some ice-breaker exercises to create a comfortable space for everyone.
Then the “freestyle” party starts!
Optional solo, partnered, and group activities enable you to have the creative and loving experience you’d like from 9pm to 1am. There’s nothing that you have to do - your boundaries are always honoured at Cuddle Parties! Activities and options include, but are not limited to: ‘free-style’ cuddling; a creative station with colouring books, paper, art supplies and games; snacks; And of course - we will ring in the New Year together at midnight with plenty of hugs and (non-alcoholic) refreshments!
You are free to leave anytime, as is always the case with Cuddle Parties, however we hope that you will stay with us overnight and enjoy the catered breakfast at 9am the next day (January 1st)!
During the evening there is plenty of time to relax, collect hugs, give or receive a massage, have conversations, snuggle up with friends new and old, draw, journal, laugh, practice saying 'No', however this event is different as you are also welcome to actually sleep over (maybe even in a new friend’s arms!) and stay for breakfast!
We will be serving a delicious hot buffet breakfast, prepared by an on-site caterer. A Closing Circle at 11am will conclude the party.
Breakfast is included in the cost of the ticket, so even if you’d prefer your own bed for the night but want to join us for the meal in the morning, you are welcome to come back from 9am to 11am for this.

Testimonials from others who have attended Angela & Amber’s events:
"Thank you so much for the chance to attend the cuddle party. I have been in a state of bliss ever since. The human contact, the respectful people in the group it was all amazing. The comfort for a man going through a divorce was amazing. Being able to approach women when you're nervous about dating was awesome too. No stress, no pressure just approach anyone for a cuddle or hug. I hope to attend as often as possible." - anonymous
"I had the opportunity to go to a cuddle party hosted by 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." - anonymous
