Cuddle Party, Calgary East - "End of the World Cuddle Party"
Friday, December 21, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 10:30 PM (MST)
Snacks will be provided however please feel free to being something extra for the group.
Cuddle Party is a short workshop in non-sexual touch, boundaries and communication, followed by a couple of hours to put what you’ve learned into practice by enjoying and exploring touch. (Think hugs, foot rubs, back rubs, spooning and just general non-sexual snuggling.)
A trained facilitator gently leads you and the other guests through an orientation, where you’ll learn to make easy, respectful requests and communicate clear boundaries, and where we’ll go over the simple rules. Then you’ll have plenty of time to relax, chat, cuddle, have a snack, or just hang out.
Cuddle Party is a non-sexual event! Everyone remains clothed in pajamas and agrees to the Cuddle Party Rules, which include:
* Arrive on time for the welcome circle/orientation.
* Ask for what you want and get a verbal “yes” before proceeding.
* You don’t have to cuddle anyone you don’t want to, or anyone at all, ever.
Some people are already comfortable with touch and can’t wait to be in a place where that’s OK. Others aren’t even sure they want any touch at all, but come to explore some communication skills. Others are just curious about what it might be like. Whatever your reasons, a Cuddle Party is a great playground for discovering more about yourself, for exploring new ways of connecting with others, or simply enjoying a relaxing, cozy evening with other cuddly souls.
Most Cuddle Parties (unless otherwise specified) include both women and men, (about 10-25 people) and are held at private homes here in Seattle. They last about 3 ½ hours. Sometimes we host parties for particular groups, like women only, or seniors, or singles. We charge a modest fee to cover the training, time and responsibilities of our facilitators. Adults only (18 and up).

When & Where
Hi my name is Lindy Eastman,
When I kindly tell you NO, dont take it personally..lol..Im looking after me. I want you to feel the same way.
Communication is a needed and necessary part of our everyday lives. Without it there is no structure, or stability. Without it here is confusion, and chaos. The Cuddle Party Rules are a concept you will learn in a intimate group setting, learning about boundaries.
This course is for everyone, it is someone like myself that likes to experience different things. Likes to be surprised, likes something that I can walk away from and use. Put to the test immediately. I was able to do this here. I encourage you to use what you learn, and use the tools each time you attend here with myself and others, as well bring your friends (age must be over the age of 18) Bring your Date for a unique experience. Learn what each other likes and dislikes early. Close connections are made easily here. A safe Non judgemental enviroment for age, race, sexual preference, gender.
There is more to life than positive thinking..lol..You can not will the weeds to leave your garden. It takes work. Actually life has rules and boundaries once in place your life becomes easier, simplier, and more postive.
This can be a unique experience for singles, couples trying to reconnect as well friendships and close connections are created and do develop into special relationships through attending our Cuddle Parties. Our focus is to help others develop healthy boundaries, learn to give and receive in a respectful and safe enviroment. Our Workshops are Unique and Specialized.
How does this work??? youll have to come and play to find out.
