What we're about

Welcome to the Meetup Group, Cuddle Parties and other Healing Events at Landing in San Diego!

CuddleParty.com (http://www.cuddleparty.com/) is a movement that is taking the world by quiet storm and as former participants (with varying healing and teaching backgrounds) who have 10 years combined experience in this practice, Katie, Heather and Paul are excited to be serving this community.

We cultivate individuals looking to learn the art of conscious communication and non-sexual touch. This is not meant to be a group for dating or hook ups. We work diligently to create a safe space and framework for people to self explore and grow in these cuddle-inspired workshops.

Why Cuddle Parties?

Human beings of all ages need touch and affection. We never outgrow it. As we re-discover non-sexual touch and affection, we find a spacious and generous opportunity to enjoy and explore kindness and human affection with others. And we have more fun.

Cuddle Party® is specifically designed to leave the sexual kinds of touch off the menu, so that the more inclusive, non-sexual kinds of touch have a chance to be found and enjoyed.

Many people find this quite natural. For others, it’s a new experience, or even challenging. Many people are surprised to find this such a rich, comforting, playful and fun experience.

Got questions? Feel free to message the organizers Katie Anne, Heather and Paul or better yet, start a discussion so all members can benefit as many may have the same questions as you do.

We plan to hold occasional Zoom driven Q&A sessions online in the near future.

Thank you again for becoming a part of this revolutionary community.

Respectfully,

Your Cuddle Crew

WHAT IS CUDDLE PARTY®? (From CuddleParty.com) Cuddle Party® is … a workshop! Though touch is natural, the skills that make it welcome and enjoyable should be learned. The skills of communication, boundary setting, asking for what you want, and saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ with clarity and kindness are practiced. 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 everyday life, right from the start. When boundaries and consent are clear, every relationship is easier.
