CUDDLE PARTY - WELCOME TO SUMMER!
The days are getting longer and the chilly blast of winter a distant memory. Let's cuddle!
We will share the gifts of Conscious Communication and Conscious Touch. Cuddle party features a safe, supportive space to explore a wide range of nurturing touch and connection experiences.
The first hour is a communication workshop in which you will learn how to ask for what you want in a way that it feels like a gift. You will learn to choose; say yes and no and even change your mind in a graceful way.
This is followed by a couple of hours of free-style cuddling.
You will leave with a greater understanding and connection with YOU, and perhaps a few others who you may have not even met yet.

The Rules of "Cuddling -- The rules are tried and true, and there’s a logic to them that goes deeper than you might think to create a safe, fun environment for people to connect.
