Cuddle Party at the Temple of Tendrness May 26, 2019 Milton MA

NOURISHING, AFE, FUN, CONSENT ONLY, NON SEXUAL, CUDDLE PARTY WHY DO PEOPLE COME TO A CUDDLE PARTY? * BECAUSE Touch Heals. * BECAUSE Touch Relaxes. * BECAUSE, Touch can be Safe. A recent attendee wrote in an article published in the March edition of Options Magazine "I wasn't sure how cuddling with random people was going to go, but everyone was so sweet and gentle .... The attendees were a wide range of ages, skin colors and body shapes.... " another recent attendee said, "I love, love loved it! It was so nourishing and healing. I love the rules that makes it feel like a safe space. ... It was a precious experience." There’s no question about it ~ the benefits of safe, nurturing, welcome, consensual heart-full touch is essential for the wellbeing of your body, your heart, and your spirit. Cuddle Party is a Communications Workshop and a Cuddle event! Though touch is natural, the skills that make it welcome and enjoyable sometimes need to be learned and practiced. In a Cuddle Party we start with a Welcome Circle where we go over the rules of the Cuddle Party and teach and practice expressing boundaries, asking for what you want, and saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ with clarity and kindness. If you decide by the end of the Welcome Circle that it isn’t the right time/event for you, you may leave and receive a full refund. We are LGBTQIA friendly and all age, race and ethnicity welcoming! You may want to attend this Cuddle Party for a variety of reasons. Some come just to have fun and enjoy a wonderful evening of connecting with like-minded people and making new friends. Some come to safely fulfill their need for affection and nurturing touch that may be missing in their everyday life. Some appreciate the learning and personal growth aspect, having the opportunity to improve their social and communication skills, and explore ways of creating connection and closeness. Whatever you choose to do is Perfect in a Cuddle Party. For many of us, this can be an uncomfortable edge to explore. That's why I created my own cuddle space affectionately called the Temple of Yum! My job as a trained facilitator is to guide you into these skills gently and easily, in a fun, safe and light hearted way. I am here to create an atmosphere of respect and safety, welcoming you wherever you are on a scale of comfort with touch. I remain available for questions and support throughout the whole Cuddle Party. WHAT TO EXPECT: The Cuddle Party lasts for about 4 hours: Doors open at 3:30 pm 3:30 - 4:00- Arrive, check in and put on comfy clothes. Feel free to bring clean, comfy. cuddly clothes. 4:00 - 4:45 pm - The Welcome Circle. 4:45 – 7:15 pm - Freestyle practice time with affectionate nurturing touch - what we call "Cuddling". 7:15 - 7:30 pm Closing circle, and goodbyes. Snuggling can mean feet against feet, head or shoulder rubs, full-body hugs, spooning - it is entirely up to you. You can participate according to your desires and comfort level. It is perfectly ok if you just want to talk and not touch anyone for a while or not at all - YOU ARE ALWAYS AT CHOICE!!!. Regardless of your level of physical engagement, you will have a great opportunity to meet and connect with other people in a safe and relaxing environment.

FUN WORKSHOP - How To Survive On The Dance Floor

Watertown Center for Healing Arts (Charles River Room)

$20.00

Let me ask you something... Do you wish that you could just get out on the dance floor and have fun like everyone else, but you're a little too self-conscious to take the risk? Would you like to be able to blend in and have fun at parties, weddings, and even dance clubs? If you answered "yes" to either of these questions, then you're going to love this. You see, I know what it's like to fear the dance floor. All my life I never knew how to freestyle dance with another person, or even by myself. Whenever I would ask people for advice, they would say, "How do you freestyle dance? You just get out there and do it!" Okay thanks, but that's not helpful advice for someone who doesn't have the vocabulary of dance moves (let alone the confidence to get out there and try it). The truth is, there isn't much help out there for total beginners when it comes to freestyle dancing. Sure, there are dozens of places to learn swing or salsa, but when it comes to "fast dancing" with someone at a party, people just expect you to know how to do it. The good news is that we have a solution for you that's easy and is proven to work. For years now, my friend Lisa Medley has been teaching total beginners how to blend in (and even look good) on any dance floor, and she's coming to Boston to teach a special class just for our group. ************************************************* HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL LEARN: ************************************************* • How to "find the beat" in any music so you know exactly how to dance to it. • The #1 secret you were never taught about how to have rhythm (once you know this, you can dance to any song and blend right in). • You'll learn exactly what to do with your feet and hands so you look totally natural on the dance floor. • You'll learn the basic framework of freestyle dance and how to use it to discover your own unique style of movement (it's much easier than you think when you use Lisa's system). • And much more! ************************************************* HOW TO JOIN US ************************************************* Where is it? The workshop is conveniently located at the Watertown Center For Healing Arts which is a beautiful facility for an event like this. What time? Please plan on arriving by 6:45pm so you have time to settle in and meet the other members. We start promptly at 7:00pm and go until 9:00pm (with a break in the middle). There are plenty of bus lines that go to the center, and there is also lots of parking both on the street and in a big parking lot right across the street from the venue. How much? Cheap. We waste so much of our time and money on social events that don't bring us any real satisfaction. This is an opportunity to have a truly satisfying experience and really connect with other single people who are eager to get to know you. So how much? Because I want to include as many people as I can, I've decided to keep the price very affordable so that anyone who wants to come will be able to. The cost for this event is only $20, which is very low considering the quality of experience you'll be getting. Think about it... that's 67 cents a day for a month. What else do you spend 67 cents on every day that makes no difference in your life whatsoever? I promise that this will be well worth your time. You'll learn so much about yourself, about others, and you'll also discover how you can share more of yourself in every conversation you get into moving forward. How big is the event? Because we are going to be moving around (this is a dance class after all), I have to limit this event to 50 people due to the size limitations of the room. I'm listing this event in 5 different meetup groups, so there are literally more than 18,000 people seeing this. Go ahead and put in your RSVP right now in order to secure your spot. I'm looking forward to seeing you there. Warmly, Jason P.S. - Take down my cell number in case you have any questions about the event or if you get lost. The venue is extremely easy to find, so you should have no problems, but just in case, my cell is[masked]

Mix and Mingle for Singles 35-50!

Jon Fischer Photography

Why is this posted on Relationship Skills? My event is posted here because it's an unusually easy environment for people to take a small step into the dating world especially if they are socially uncomfortable in group situations. I make sure that the setting is warm and comfortable and easy for you to reach out to singles in a dating situation that is really different than any other meetup or bar situation. I'm also here to lend my support and give you a nudge if necessary. :) If you have been to any of Jason McGarva's amazing classes, or possibly another workshop listed here, my event is truly the perfect opportunity to try out the skills that you have learned during those workshops. I really hope you can make it! Please say hello to me and let me know if you could use my support during the night. I'd be happy to help! All the best Jon This is a NEW 35-50 Mix and Mingle!!

BALANCE OF MEN AND WOMEN My events are unlike probably any (or many) other meetup groups. I have a very strong commitment to making sure that my events are gender balanced and full or I will cancel it with a refund. Most of you have experienced how unreliable meetup RSVP's are and have been disappointed coming to an event hoping to meet a date.
