Hi everyone!,…

Saturday, July 20th, I am bringing Cuddle Party to the Mahalo Retreat Center in West Brattleboro Vt!

Have recent events left you feeling deprived of opportunities for touch? Do you feel stressed, overwhelmed, isolated, or alone? Have you ever said yes when you really wanted to say no? Do you struggle to ask for what you really want? If any of this sounds like you or you are just curious then you are invited to pack your PJs, your favorite pillow, a snack to share and give yourself the gift of a Cuddle Party.

Please join me in the cuddle space as we gather and begin the evening with a one hour consent workshop which includes going over the rules of cuddling. After a few partner exercises we enter into platonic nourishing touch time, roughly two hours, referred to as ‘freestyle cuddling’ cleverly disguised as a pajama party.

Please purchase tickets through Eventbrite to guarantee your spot. There are multiple price points online: $30/$35/$40. If you choose to pay at the door the price is $45 and you may be turned away if the event is full.

Let’s go over expectations for the evening and what the event will look like, starting with the rules of cuddling. Going over these rules and abiding by them is what creates a safe environment, for everyone, to be at choice giving and receiving nourishing touch. We encourage you to use the rules in your life as well. Try it sometime. <3

STARTING ON TIME: Doors will open at 5:00pm. The event begins at 6pm. Doors will be closed at that time. No one will be admitted after the doors have closed. If you are running late please message or call me. 617-460-7087. We will have a closing circle at 9:45 and the event will end at 10:00. Once we begin the Welcome Circle, the door to the event is closed. This creates comfort and safety for everyone knowing that we are on the same page about rules and expectations.

CREATING THE CONTAINER: After the Welcome circle, we go over the ‘rules of cuddling’, which are listed below. This is how we create a safe environment, for everyone, to give and receive nourishing touch.

WHAT KIND OF TOUCH TO EXPECT: Massages, head scratching, spooning, watching/observing, learning about consent, talking, dancing, laughter, holding hands, napping, hugs, writing in a journal or reading a book, or no touch at all. Your choice. 🙂

WHAT TO WEAR: Loose comfortable clothing. Your favorite onsie, pajamas, sweatpants. Optional is a pillow, stuffed animal, favorite blanket if you like.

BRING A SNACK TO SHARE: This is a alcohol free/smoke free event. Juice or sparkling cider, and treats and snacks to share with your new friends.

HEALTH CHECK-IN: If you aren’t feeling well please stay home and take care of yourself. Join us for next Month’s cuddle party. <3

Let’s go over the ‘rules of cuddling’. The rules create the container and expectations we will all agree to and abiding by during the cuddle party. This is what creates a safe environment for everyone, to be at choice with giving and receiving nourishing touch or not. We encourage you to use the rules in your life as well. Try it sometime. <3

THE RULES OF CUDDLING:

1) Pajamas stay on the whole time. (This is a nonsexual event, and clothes staying on is one of the ways we keep it that way.)

2) You don’t have to touch anyone at a Cuddle Party, ever.

3) You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. (Be as specific in your request as you can.)

4) If you’re a yes, say YES. If you’re a no, say NO.

5) If you’re a maybe, say NO.

6) You are encouraged to change your mind.

7) Respect your relationship agreements and communicate with your partner.

8 ) Get your Facilitator or the Assistant if you have a question or concern or need assistance with anything during the event.

9) Tears and laughter are both welcome.

10) Respect people’s privacy. (When referring to Cuddle Party, please only talk about your own experience.)

11) Keep the Cuddle space tidy. (Please, no food in the cuddle space. Closed lid water bottles are allowed.)

ABOUT YOUR FACILITATOR

Doug comes from a life of movement, dance and expression. He was a mime in Paris, danced Tango in Argentina, was in an acrobatic Lindy Hop dancer and enjoys barefoot boogies, ecstatic dances and contact improv. During Covid he didn’t get a lot of touch, which is when he realized he loves dance, but can’t live without touch. This is what motivated him to become a cuddle party facilitator.

Any questions please send me a message.

See you in the cuddle space. <3
