Turned On ~ a poem by Anto Ferrante

Let’s live turned on

Turn on your awareness

Turn on your senses

Turn on your desire

Let’s live turned on

From dusk to dawn

Bring your intentions to life

Allow yourself to be the realization of your dreams

Let’s live turned on

Bring your stamina up

Fill your dopamine tank to full

Seek your next adventure

Let’s live turned on

May your eyes shine the light of the awakened

May your intentions bring love and well-being to all of us

May your actions be the realization of your Voice

Let’s live turned on

Bring your playfulness to life

Let your innocence show you the way

Make your Divine Eros your guide

Let’s live turned on

Wherever and whatever you are, live turned on

Limited and precious is the time you have to manifest your full potentials

Do you know what they are?

Let’s live turned on

Listen, sit, breath

Your Voice will speak to you

And teach you to inquire and bring you insights

Let’s live turned on

It’s all a matter of practice

Just don’t stop

July 28th Cuddle Party™ with Meg

Central District

Please Register on EventBrite for Address and details: https://july28cuddle.eventbrite.com Doors: 5:40 – 5:55 (Doors lock) Party: 6 – 9:30 PM Cost: $30 (please contact me if this is not possible for you as I believe everyone should have access to Cuddle Party) Dear Cuddlers, Snugglers and others... Have you ever stopped to wonder "Am I doing this because I truly am a YES or am I doing this because I perceive that this is what is expected of me?" Cuddle Party is about learning about your YES and NO and being able to convey that to others. Cuddle Party is a work/play shop where we start with the "Rules of Cuddling" (yes there are rules) and get to know one another and then we practice these communication/boundary setting skills through cuddling including the option not to cuddle at all. This is a chance to follow your impulses with clear communication in the present moment, changing your mind and allowing yourself to notice what is a YES for you or a NO. We will start promptly at 6 PM (Doors at 5:40 - 5:55 PM) and end at 9:30 PM. We start with a opening Circle where we go over the Rules of Cuddling and get to know one another and from there we engage in Conscious Cuddling! What is that? It is a way of being present in your body, yourself while asking for what you want and then giving honest YES or NO answers. It is a way to engage with one another and practice communication skills while receiving/giving non sexual touch! And these skills translate outside of Cuddle Party to day to day life! What is Cuddle Party? Cuddle Party is a short workshop in non-sexual touch, boundaries and communication, followed by a couple of hours to put what you’ve learned into practice by enjoying and exploring touch. (Think hugs, foot rubs, back rubs, spooning and just general non-sexual snuggling.) Cuddle Party is a holistic, social environment, that attracts fascinating people from all walks of life. It provides a special and unique opportunity for connection, learning and growth. Come cuddle with us! A trained facilitator gently leads you and the other guests through an orientation, where you’ll learn to make easy, respectful requests and communicate clear boundaries, and where we’ll go over the simple rules. Then you’ll have plenty of time to relax, chat, cuddle, have a snack, or just hang out. Cuddle Party is not a sexual event! Everyone remains clothed in pajamas and agrees to the Cuddle Party Rules, which include: * Arrive on time for the welcome circle/orientation. * Ask for what you want and get a verbal “yes” before proceeding. * You don’t have to cuddle anyone you don’t want to, or anyone at all, ever. Some people are already comfortable with touch and can’t wait to be in a place where that’s OK. Others aren’t even sure they want any touch at all, but come to explore some communication skills. Others are just curious about what it might be like. Whatever your reasons, a Cuddle Party is a great playground for discovering more about yourself, for exploring new ways of connecting with others, or simply enjoying a relaxing, cozy evening with other cuddly souls. Most Cuddle Parties (unless otherwise specified) include both women and men, (about 10-25 people) and are held at private homes here in Seattle. They last about 3 ½ hours. Sometimes we host parties for particular groups, like women only, or seniors, or singles. We charge a modest fee to cover the training, time and responsibilities of our facilitators. Adults only (18 and up). Nurturing and consensual loving touch is good for maintaing healthy blood pressure, a strong nervous system and a balanced emotional health. One’s ability to connect with and develop greater trust in others is emphasized during the group exchanges during Cuddle Party’s. Self-care is a cornerstone of Cuddle Party experience.
