March Cuddle Party (Chicago)
Purchase Tickets HERE
What can I expect?
- It’s a great best practice to take a covid rapid test before the event for peace of mind.
- Review the itinerary below and arrive on time. Once we begin the Welcome Circle and orientation the doors will close and no one else will be admitted. This creates comfort and accountability by ensuring that everyone has heard the rules and expectations.
- What to wear: Pajamas or minimum outer wear shorts and t-shirt. Think about what clothing might be comfortable to lounge around in and allows for motion. The space can get chilly so it’s a great idea to bring layers you can adjust to your comfort.
- What to bring: Non-alcoholic beverages and/or snacks to share. Cuddle accessories (i.e. pillow, blanket, stuffed animals etc.) are also welcome. Mostly just bring yourself and a open hearted mindset.
Are there any rules?
