Join us for authentic connection, platonic touch and joyful interaction. We’ll explore communication and consent in a gentle, playful and hands-on way. Connect with others, feel and know your truth, ask for what you want, say yes, say no and enjoy nurturing cuddles in community.
What happens during this event?
Each session begins with introductions, a workshop on boundaries and interactive exercises designed to help you hone new skills and develop a new way of being. Then we move into free-style cuddling and you're free to do what feels good and right for you during this time.
Learn the language of consent and develop the skills you need to advocate for yourself in the realm of physical touch. Feel empowered, speak your truth, honour yourself and get really clear about what you want and what you don't want.
This event is limited to 12 people and groups are a balance of genders for positive group dynamic.
Cuddling and Covid 19 - we're working with Alberta Health Services to make cuddling as safe as possible for our clients. To protect your health and safety, we pre-screen for Covid 19, provide hand sanitizer which is compulsory upon entering the space and require masks to be worn for the duration of both private and group sessions.
Discover how you can get close to other people, meet your needs for platonic touch and remain true to yourself at the same time.
There are rules for this event and here they are in a nutshell.
1. Respect confidentiality
2. Honour boundaries - yours, others and the groups
3. This event is non-sexual- it’s ok to be attracted or aroused but never ok to act on arousal.
4. Communicate clearly by asking for what you want and saying yes or no according to your truth.
5. You have permission to feel all of your feelings.
This is a non-sexual event - in our culture cuddling and sexuality have been married and there is an assumption that cuddling will lead to sex. This is not true and what we learn in this space will help break down the old paradigm and teach you a new way to be that is more life-giving than you can imagine. These are the tools that can lead you to true authenticity and true intimacy.
Treat yourself to cuddles, fun, expansion, play, authentic connection, communication, boundaries and self-love ♥

My experience began 10 years ago when I was introduced to the concept of platonic cuddling for the first time. It was a revelation to learn that I could speak up, express my needs, discern what was healthy for me, speak my truth, say yes, say no, set healthy boundaries and get really close with other people while maintaining respect and safety.
This work has permeated every aspect of my life, changed the way I relate to people and offered a sense of freedom I never knew possible.
I offer this learning paired with one of my favourite things in the world...cuddling.
Cuddling releases emotionally positive brain chemicals that make you feel loved and secure. The release of Oxytocin, "The love hormone," is literally good for your heart, reducing blood pressure, stress and anxiety.
“We need 4 hugs a day for survival, 8 hugs a day for maintenance and 12 hugs a day for growth," says Psychologist and Author Virginia Satir.
When was the last time you had a really good hug? If it's been awhile, you're not alone. Touch starvation and isolation are really common in our culture. If you’re single, how do you get your need for touch met? Being in a relationship doesn’t guarantee that you’re receiving what you need either. Relationships are complicated. They can be fraught with anxiety and issues that get in the way of relaxation and true connection.
In the modern age, our connections are increasingly made or maintained through text, Instagram, Facebook or email. Where is the heart-to-heart connection in all of this? Where is the human touch?
Similar to booking a massage, you can book a private therapeutic cuddle session or join a cuddle group and meet your needs for touch and connection in a wholesome, healthy and life-giving way.
Experience an organic process of giving and receiving including hugs, spooning, holding hands, hair play, caresses, tenderness and kindness.
Learn how to communicate clearly and listen to your own internal compass - ask for what you want, say yes and say no without apology. Discover how you can operate from your authentic self, carry a new sense of freedom and be yourself fully in the world.
Discover a safe place where you can relax, let go, and be yourself.
