Come snuggle up with us!
We all need more touch. Touch raises oxytocin levels, the feel good hormone in our bodies. I always leave a cuddle party feeling blissed out and connected. And really, in order to thrive, we all need more touch. The lack of touch in our society is one of the big reasons so many people suffer from depression, anxiety, and an overall sense of disconnection.
What is a snuggle party?
A snuggle party is a place where you can come to give and receive platonic touch. All touch is consensual and everyone stays fully clothed. The energy is relaxing and soothing, rather than arousing or stimulating. You may want to ask someone for a back rub. Someone may ask to hold your hand or braid your hair. You are encouraged to say "no" to anything you don't want and a big "YES!" to the things that you do.
The first part of a snuggle party is learning and practicing rules and boundaries. This part of these parties literally CHANGED MY LIFE and the way I communicate in my relationships with friends, family, co-workers, and well, EVERYONE! You'll learn how to ground yourself, really listen in to what it is you want and don't want, and you'll learn how to communicate your wishes to other people. Both verbal and non-verbal communication skills will be taught. If you're like many people, you may have a hard time saying "no" without feeling uncomfortable about it. You may also have a hard time when someone tells you "no." With parties like this, you learn to change the story around "no" and see that the person giving the "no" isn't rejecting anyone, they are saying "yes" to themselves and their own needs. You'll soon see how good it feels!
This is a sober event. Wear pj's or other comfy clothing, bring a blanket and/or pillow if you'd like. Please come freshly showered but refrain from using perfume or cologne as some guests may be sensitive to scents.

Do you want to come but you're nervous?
I totally get it. Believe it or not, I'm a shy person myself and I haven't always been comfortable with touch. Please honor your feelings and emotions but also be willing to push past your comfort zone a little bit. We strive to create a safe, nurturing, and loving space for everyone. We make ourselves available throughout the party if you have any questions or concerns or you feel like you need us for any reason. Oh also, some people come just to practice saying "no" and they don't cuddle anyone at all! We will never ask you to do anything you aren't comfortable with and you're welcome to cuddle...or not!
