The Conscious Cuddle Puddle is a safe space to explore cuddling, human connection and the healing power of non-sexual human touch. The workshop introduces verbal and nonverbal communication to tune into ourselves and others. We teach how to approach and invite others safely and how to make our intentions and boundaries clear. And there are of course plenty of yummy cuddles.Structure of the workshop: We begin with a sharing circle, introducing a framework of safety, mindfulness and respect. Then, participants are guided through some communication, boundaries and consent practices to make sure the cuddle experience is a safe one.With beautiful live music we move through playful exercises leading into a cuddle puddle, and then conclude with a sharing circle.
