Description

Come join us for an engaging consent based workshop and an open environment for cuddling, connecting, and being without expectation or judgement.  The  experience is about highlighting our ability to choose as well as giving you a space to practice asking for what you want and saying no to what you do not. You never have to touch anyone or be touched at a cuddle party ever.  Cuddle Party is … a workshop! Though touch is natural, the skills that make it welcome and enjoyable have to be learned. Skills of communication, boundaries, asking for what you want, and saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ with clarity and kindness. Cuddle Party is led by trained and certified Cuddle Party Facilitators. The Facilitator’s job is to guide you into those skills gently and easily, in a fun, safe and light hearted way. We welcome you and create an atmosphere of respect, and remain available for questions and support. At a Cuddle Party you gain: Clarity and confidence Boundary and communication skills Comfort, support and encouragement The secrets to welcome, relaxed, non-sexual touch The skills you learn at Cuddle Party translate into every day life, right from the start. When boundaries and consent are clear, every relationship is easier. Where else can you attend a workshop in your pajamas? Cuddle Party is … a social event! We open with a Welcome Circle - about 45 minutes of introductions, rules and a few games to help everyone get comfortable. We teach communication and boundary skills in ways that are lighthearted and fun. Then we open up for ‘free-style’ cuddling. You have plenty of time to relax, chat, share a back rub or other welcome touch, cuddle, have a snack or just hang out. 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. Shucks, you can even come to a Cuddle Party just to cuddle! We hope you join us. Check out www.CuddleParty.org to learn more! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
