200 Lincoln Blvd, Venice, CA
Would you love to bring in the New Years in a sweet and sober way?
Got a silly hat or party hat you'd love to don?
If you’ve ever felt that cuddle events never seem to last long enough, this is your night!
In the first part of the evening, you can participate in a special ritual called Complete and Create to identify what you’re ready to let go of in the old year and bring more of what feels healthy and good into 2017. There will be tons of cuddling. We’ll provide a sparkling juice toast at midnight.
Looking for something different and fun to do on Saturday night?
Ready to connect with great people and get some hugs?
Want to relax and just be yourself?
Each Saturday night will have a different theme - no two events will be just the same!
Join us at Cuddle Sanctuary were we affirm healthy boundaries, are open and accepting of all people and cultivate tender human contact.

MORE ABOUT WHO WE ARE
Cuddle Sanctuary is where people come to give and receive cuddling and feel connected to themselves and each other. It’s a a terrific Saturday night treat. All genders and orientations - individuals, groups and couples - are all welcome.
The Cuddle Sanctuary workshop is a guided social experience that includes a welcome circle, easy relaxation activities, communication exercises and a description of cuddle etiquette. The event typically culminates in a voluntary "cuddle lab." Touch is always consensual and never a requirement to participate.
At Cuddle Sanctuary you may experience an increased sense of well-being and belonging, a boost in compassion and playfulness, a decrease blood pressure and a better night's sleep. Cuddle Sanctuary provides opportunities to meet new friends, connect with partners and pals in a soulful new way and be part of a warm, safe and huggable tribe. You are guaranteed to have a fantastic Saturday night.
