Costa Rica Cuddle Party
Do you long for more touch, nurturing, or affection in your life?
Is it hard to find safe, non-sexual touch?
Are you ready to explore conscious connection, authentic consent, and empowered boundaries?
Cuddle Party is a touch and communication workshop/party that helps build consent culture through healthy boundary practice, authentic communication and compassionate touch. A typical cuddle party lasts about 3 and a half hours with the first 40 minutes being the Welcome Circle, or workshop part of the party. During the Welcome Circle we will introduce ourselves, learn the rules of cuddle party (there are 11) and do some exercises to get more comfortable with each other and create a safe space and clear boundaries. At the end of the welcome circle if you decide that cuddle party is not for you, you can get your money back and leave at that time.
At a Cuddle Party 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
Please wear or bring to wear, pajamas or comfy clothes. This is a nonsexual and drug and alcohol free event. 18+ only. The doors will open at 3:00pm for a pot luck from 3:00-4:00pm. The workshop will begin precisely at 4:00 pm. You can leave early but you don’t come late! Please don’t show up after 4:00pm.
