Connection Is Medicine. We all need more authentic connection in our lives. A Cuddle Party is a great, safe environment to explore connection with other humans. It's also the perfect place to practice checking in with yourself about what you want and don't want... and saying yes and no clearly and having your boundaries respected.A Cuddle Party is a playful social event designed for adults to explore communication, boundaries and non-sexual affection. You can come to a Cuddle Party to meet new people, to enjoy amazing conversations, to touch, to be touched, to have fun, to practice asking for what you want, to practice saying “no” to what you don’t want — all in a setting structured to be a safe place for exploration and enjoyment. You can even come to a Cuddle Party just to cuddle!The Welcome Circle is where we create the structure and safe space for the socialising to follow. It is also where we break the ice, and get a group of strangers to feel not so strange to one another. We start by introducing ourselves and learning about the philosophy and rules of the Cuddle Party. We will also practice the communication skills and answer any questions.As the Welcome Circle concludes, most participants find themselves feeling surprised by how comfortable they feel. This is when we transition into… cuddling!Now it is time for you to to ask for what you want, say yes and no to requests and invitations, cuddle according to your desires and comfort (or just talk if you prefer), connect with fascinating people, “cuddle mingle,” and, ultimately, relax into the flow of an unusually playful and respectful social environment.Some participants cuddle in groups, others one-on-one, while some like to talk and not cuddle for a time, or not at all. Cuddling can mean feet against feet, full-body hugs, head-rubs, spooning — it is, indeed, up to you. And, configurations and positions shift significantly throughout the event, thanks in part to Rule #6: change your mind & keep yourself happy.Also throughout the event, the Cuddle Party Facilitators participate with you so that you can feel relaxed and supported and have a great time with your experiences.At the end of the event, after the traditional (but entirely optional) Puppy Pile, the Cuddle Party facilitator will hold a brief Closing Circle to share with you some closing thoughts for the road, encourage you to bring your learnings with you as you travel forward, and give everyone a chance to share any parting thoughts with the group.Participants are often in a state of cuddle intoxication at this point, and feeling a sense of connection with the group that they never would have anticipated at the beginning of the event.Please feel free to message me if you have any questions...Tamara
