JUST found out that Reid Mihalko, creator of Cuddle Party and intimacy "ninja", will be attending our Truthful Touch event this Sunday and I am totally excited about it!!!
If you're not familiar with Reid's recent work check it out at www.relationship10x.com. He's got some free videos you can watch there (after shamelessly pandering your email. If you're a yes say yes, if you're a no say no :)
I personally adore this man. He is doing great things to create more self expressed, authentic and satisfying relationships in the world by teaching cutting edge evolutionary communication tools. Cuddle Party is a great example of this and it was just the beginning. He's also ridiculously funny and easy to talk to.
If you've been thinking about attending this event and have been sitting on the fence - this is a great time to hop off on the yes side! If you haven't been in awhile, this is the perfect time to come back! If you come regularly, you are in for an added treat! He will be available for our own intimate Q & A as well as invitations and requests for cuddling.
Truthful Touch lasts for 4 hours:
Doors open at 1 pm
1:00-1:30pm arrive, check in and put on pajamas. Please bring clean, comfy. cuddly clothes. Also, bringing a snack to share is welcomed. Think breath-friendly, but no worries, I always have plenty of Altoids!
1:30-2:30pm The Welcome Circle. Attendees MUST be present for the whole welcome circle to participate. If you are not here by 1:30pm and have not called, you will not be able to participate. My phone number is below.
2:30-5:00pm Freestyle practice time with affectionate nurturing touch - what we call "Cuddling".
5:00-5:30pm puppy pile (optional), closing circle, and goodbyes.

The Rules of "Cuddling"
The rules are tried and true, and there’s a logic to them that goes deeper than you might think to create a safe, fun environment for people to connect. At a Truthful Touch (aka Cuddle Party) event, the first 40 minutes or so includes an explanation of the rules that you can put to use everyday. Intrigued? Come check it out!
And with no further ado…
ARRIVE ON TIME: Once we begin the Welcome Circle and orientation, sorry, we can let no one enter late. This creates comfort and safety by knowing that everyone is on the same page about rules and expectations.
WHAT TO WEAR: Pajamas or sweats– nothing too risqué. Think more comfy than sexy. (More drawstrings, less lace! No shorts or nighties please.)
WHAT TO BRING: Sorry, no liquor folks. Juice or sparkling cider is always welcome as are treats and snacks to share. A pillow or stuffed animal if you like. Otherwise, just bring your smiling self.
STICK TO THE RULES:
- Pajamas stay on the whole time.
- You don’t have to touch anyone at Truthful Touch, ever.
- You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. (Be as specific in your request as you can.)
- If you’re a yes, say YES. If you’re a no, say NO.
- If you’re a maybe, say NO.
- You are encouraged to change your mind.
- Respect your relationship agreements and communicate with your partner.
- Get your Facilitator or the Assistant if you have a question or concern or need assistance with anything during the event.
- Tears and laughter are both welcome.
- Respect people’s privacy when sharing about Truthful Touch.
- Keep the Cuddle space tidy
