All in-person events have been cancelled, until further notice.
STAY TUNED for VIRTUAL events, coming in JULY!
These unique times call for creative work-arounds. While our health relies on physical distancing, now, more than ever, our hearts crave social connection. Using whatever means available, we need to come together, to comfort and care for each other. To see and be seen - and know we aren’t alone. Come meet your neighbors - next door and from across the globe - at a gathering SOON!
Do you want to explore conscious connection, authentic consent, and empowered boundaries?
We all need touch and affection that is not about sex. Portland Cuddle Connection events are a way to reclaim that in our lives!
There’s no question about it. Nurturing, welcome, consensual touch is good for your body, your heart, and your spirit. Your nervous system, blood pressure, and emotional health all benefit from healthy, heart-full touch! Cuddling enhances your ability to connect with and trust people, your ability to respect and care for yourself, your creativity, your sense of safety and comfort and belonging ~ infants who are deprived of touch fail to thrive, and we never outgrow that need.
Portland Cuddle Connection events are non-sexual and offer you the opportunity to explore consensual intimacy with like-minded others. In a relaxed format that upholds personal boundaries and mutual respect, you are invited to explore communication and touch, in a safe and share-affirming environment.
Though touch is natural, the skills that make it welcome and enjoyable need to be learned and practiced. Skills of communication, boundaries, asking for what you want, and saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ with clarity and kindness.
My job as facilitator is to guide you into these skills gently and easily, in a fun, safe and light hearted way. I am here to welcome you, create an atmosphere of respect, and remain available for questions and support.
At a Portland Cuddle Connection event you gain: * Clarity and confidence about your wants and needs * Boundary and communication skills * Comfort, support and encouragement * The secrets to welcome, relaxed, platonic touch The skills you learn here translate into every day life, right from the start. When boundaries and consent are clear, every relationship is easier.
And… Where else can you attend a workshop in your pajamas?!
