DESCRIPTION
I'm currently finishing up my Cuddle Party Facilitation Training. As part of that I need to facilitate 3 Review Parties and get feedback. This will be mu second one so I hope you will join me!

Cuddle Party is open to anyone 18 years or older. All ages, races, religions and LGBTQ community warmly welcomed.

* Do you long for more touch, nurturing, or affection in your life?
* Is it hard to find safe, non-sexual touch?
* Are you ready to explore conscious connection, authentic consent, and empowered boundaries?


Then a Cuddle Party is the place for you! Come and experience the abundance of love and nurturing touch that is available to you. This is a GREAT place for beginners!!!

There’s no question about it ~ we all crave more touch. The body's bliss hormone, Oxytocin, is released by nurturing, welcome, consensual touch and is essential for the wellbeing of your body, your heart, and your spirit. Your nervous system, blood pressure, and emotional health all benefit from healthy, heart-full touch!

Safe touch also enhances your ability to connect with and trust people, your capacity to respect and care for yourself, your creativity, and your sense of safety, comfort, and belonging. Infants who are deprived of touch fail to thrive, and we never outgrow that need. In today’s high-tech low-touch society, we especially crave the authentic connection, deep listening, and nurturing touch that we were born to receive.

Though touch is natural, the skills that make it welcome and enjoyable sometimes need to be learned and practiced. Skills of communication, expressing boundaries, asking for what you want, and saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ with clarity and kindness.

For many of us, this can be an uncomfortable edge to explore. That's why I created my own cuddle space! My job as a trained cuddle facilitator is to guide you into these skills gently and easily, in a fun, safe and light hearted way. I am here to welcome you, create an atmosphere of respect, and be available during the cuddle party for questions and support.

At a Cuddle Party you gain:
* Clarity and confidence about your wants and needs
* Boundary and communication skills
* Comfort, support and encouragement
* The secrets to welcome, relaxed, platonic touch

The skills you learn at this Cuddle Party translate into everyday life, right from the start. When boundaries and consent are clear, every relationship is easier.

And… Where else can you attend a workshop in your pajamas?!

WHAT TO EXPECT

During the first hour we create the structure and establish safe space with the Welcome Circle. We will introduce ourselves, learn about the Cuddle Party philosophy, go over the Agreements (like "Ask permission and get a verbal Yes before touching anyone", and "It's okay to change your mind at any time, for any reason"), and go through several communication and ice-breaker exercises. This is followed by a couple of hours of social snuggling time, where you will have the option to join in a group snuggle, connect with others for individual snuggles, or just sit back and watch, journal, and have a conversation. You can leave at any time, or stay until we end with a Closing Circle.

You may want to attend this Cuddle Party for a variety of reasons. Some come just to have fun and enjoy a wonderful evening of connecting with like-minded people and making new friends. Some come to safely fulfill their need for affection and nurturing touch that may be missing in their everyday life. Some appreciate the learning and personal growth aspect, having the opportunity to improve their social and communication skills, and explore ways of creating connection and closeness. Some may appreciate risking connecting with someone of the same sex (or the opposite sex, if that's your edge). Some find a beautiful element of spirituality here, and play with touch meditation, breath Tantra, eye gazing, and exploring the naturally altered state of consciousness that the "cuddling hormone" oxytocin can produce.

Snuggling can mean feet against feet, head or shoulder rubs, full-body hugs, spooning - it is entirely up to you. You can participate according to your desires and comfort level. It is perfectly ok if you just want to talk and not touch anyone for a while or not at all - YOU ARE ALWAYS AT CHOICE!!!. Regardless of your level of physical engagement, you will have a great opportunity to meet and connect with other people in a safe and relaxing environment.

The opening Welcome Circle is for introductions and to go over the Agreements of the Cuddle Party. This is an important aspect of the Cuddle Party experience and creates a safe container for all participants. It is essential that everyone be on time. Once the Welcome Circle begins, no late arrivals can enter.

WEAR comfortable, non-binding, clothing (sweat pants, loose cotton, pajamas, onesies, etc. - have fun!). Think comfy, not sexy. You may change at the venue if necessary. This will be a shoe-free environment, so please bring and wear socks if your feet get cold. Out of consideration for other participants, please be fresh and hygienic and DON’T WEAR any strong fragrances, colognes, or perfumes.

*BRING your open heart, and be prepared for the open hearts of others! Optionally, consider bringing a pillow and blanket or any other soft fluff to enhance your snuggling experience.
