What we're about

Are you getting enough touch in your life? Perhaps you just love to cuddle at any given opportunity. Well now's your chance - come and give yourself a boost of Oxytocin, meet some people and have fun at our Cuddle Workshop!

Cuddle workshops offer so much more that a feel-good experience. They create a safely boundaried space in which to:
• Connect with others
• Give and receive quality non-sexual touch
• Discover and let go of your hidden agendas around physical contact
• Playfully explore your boundaries and challenges around touch
• Gain tools for getting more satisfactory touch in your life
• Learn how to say no (and yes) powerfully and comfortably
• Experience the joy and deep relaxation of close physical contact
…all at your own pace.

This workshop is available to anyone aged 18+

More information about Cuddle Workshops and some frequently asked questions can be found at www.cuddleworkshop.co.uk.

Safety is a great concern for our group and we make every effort to create a safe and boundaried environment in which to explore physical contact. Many of the members in our group are attending for healing purposes, some to heal from some form of past physical abuse. With this in mind, we request that you do not make contact via this group with anyone you have not met. Contacting members you don't know may undermine that feeling of safety and may scare off those who would otherwise benefit from our work. There is an opt in forum for connection and community available to anyone who has attended our workshops and is familiar with the culture of what we do. If you have been contacted by somebody you do not know and you feel uncomfortable about it please do not respond to them and instead get in touch with us at anna@cuddleworkshop.co.uk

CUDDLING FOR BEGINNERS with Anna Fortes Cuddling for beginners?! Ok, not learning the mechanics of how to cuddle, but rather having a gentle and welcoming space to explore giving and receiving touch comfortably and easily. This special workshop is for those who want to explore the world of touch at a gentle pace within a smaller group.

CUDDLE WORKSHOP invites those who've attended one of our regular workshops to join us for Sunshine Cuddles! with Anna Fortes Welcome to Sunshine Cuddles! This workshop is for anyone who has attended at least one of our Cuddle Workshop events. With the culture of nurturing non-sexual contact already established we are now able to go deeper and let go of some of the structure. With some gentle warm-ups and a playful game or two, the main body of this workshop is freestyle cuddling (cuddle puddles), with an opportunity this time to chat and get to know others better. There will be some silent time too of course to get deeper into that delicious bliss state you've experienced in our other workshops!
