Snuggle Sundays June (SOLD OUT)

Touch and affection. Humans need it, it’s no longer a question. Nurturing, welcome consensual touch is good for you! Good for your body, heart and spirit! Good for your blood pressure, your nervous system, your emotional health, your ability to connect with and trust people, your ability to respect and care for yourself, your creativity, sense of safety and comfort and belonging. Infants who are deprived of touch fail to thrive; we never outgrow the need!

Snuggle Sunday is a playful social event designed for adults to explore communication, boundaries and affection. You can come to a Snuggle Sunday to meet new people, to enjoy amazing conversations, to touch, to be touched, to have fun, to practice asking for what you want, to practice saying “no” to what you don’t want — all in a setting structured to be a safe place for exploration and enjoyment. You can even come just to cuddle!

What happens at Snuggle Sunday

A Welcome Circle & Mini-WorkshopThe Cuddle Party starts with a Welcome Circle. This is where we create the structure and safe space for the socializing to follow. It is also where we break the ice and get a group of strangers to feel not so strange to one another. This is where you and other Cuddle Party participants can…

Introduce yourselves

Learn about what will happen

Get oriented to the ground rules

Practice the Cuddle Party communication skills

Be led through a few ice-breaker exercises

As the Welcome Circle concludes, most participants find themselves feeling surprised by how comfortable they feel.

90 mins of Facilitated Connection

Now it is time for you to ask for what you want, say yes and no to requests and invitations, cuddle according to your desires and comfort (or just talk if you prefer), connect with fascinating people, “cuddle mingle,” and, ultimately, relax into the flow of an unusually playful and respectful social environment.

Also throughout the event, the cuddle party facilitators participate with you so that you can feel relaxed and supported and have a great time with your experiences. Our cozy environment is enhanced by an eclectic and charming mix of music played at a volume that allows easily for conversation. There are fruits, juice, tea and no intoxicants (other than the oxytocin, that is).

Closing Circle

At the end of the event, there is a brief closing circle to share with you some final thoughts for the road, encourage you to bring your learnings with you as you travel forward, and give everyone a chance to share any parting thoughts with the group.

Participants are often in a state of cuddle intoxication at this point, and feeling a sense of connection with the group that they never would have anticipated at the beginning of the event.

Many participants exchange hugs, some exchange phone numbers, and all receive special thank you’s for making this particular cuddle party the special event that it was. Then its time to head home — often to a night of blissfully relaxing sleep.
