Event description


This workshop and social event offers participants opportunities to learn about and practice communication skills, explore consent, and discover the power of platonic touch. Attendees will practice identifying and asking for what they want, saying no to what they don’t want and yes to what they do want, and experimenting with platonic touch in a safe, inclusive, and nurturing environment. If you....

  • are looking to connect with an inspiring community

  • feel overwhelmed by both a desire for connection and a desire to run away from connection

  • long for nurturing and healing touch

  • need a safe place to relax and rejuvenate

  • desire physical contact with other people in a non-sexual way

  • want to stretch out of your comfort zone

  • often find yourself in the role of caretaker, but need a turn to be taken care of

  • have no idea how to answer the question "what kind of touch do you like?"

....then our platonic touch workshop & practice may be just what you have been looking for!

ABOUT ME: I am a Certified Cuddle Party Facilitator. I also have ten years experience working in early childhood and parent education that help me bring empathy, compassion, clarity, creativity and strong leadership into my role as a Cuddle Party Facilitator. I love creating space for people to connect, nurture, play, and heal.

To learn more about Cuddle Parties, click here: http://www.cuddleparty.com/ (I choose to call my events Platonic Touch Workshops & Practice because I found that the term "cuddle party" can be intimidating to individuals new to the world of platonic touch. It's important to me that my events appeal to a broad spectrum of people and feel safe for everyone. If you are feeling intimidated about attending, please know that one of the foundational rules of our events is that you never have to touch anyone you don't want to, ever. In fact, not touching or cuddling is always an available and viable option.)

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please message me through Eventbrite.

All good things, Autumn Vandiver
