Looking for a unique and enchanting experience that combines learning, laughter, consent and communication practice, and the power of human touch?
Welcome to the captivating world of cuddle parties! 🎉
Cuddle parties are extraordinary events designed to create a safe and respectful space for people to explore the power of platonic touch, while also providing valuable lessons in consent and safety. Picture a serene space filled with soft pillows and gentle music.
These parties are carefully orchestrated to ensure that every participant feels empowered, secure, and supported throughout the entire journey.
At a cuddle party, college students can experience nurturing connections, unwind from the pressures of academia, and learn essential communication and consent skills. Amanda will guide them through a series of engaging activities, creating an environment where they can explore consent, communication, and personal boundaries in a playful and non-judgmental way.
Whether students prefer a bear hug, a gentle snuggle, or an affectionate hand-hold, there's room for everyone's unique comfort level and personal boundaries. This is the beauty of cuddle parties - the fun and laughter, human touch, the intimate connection formed, and the emphasis on consent and communication. Every participant is encouraged to express their desires, boundaries, and preferences openly and honestly.
In this safe and supportive environment, students learn to navigate consent with grace, respect, and a whole lot of kindness. Through this interactive workshop, cuddle parties teach college kids the fundamental principles of consent and safety. They'll learn to articulate desires and boundaries with clarity, express needs and limits, and respect the boundaries of others. The playful nature of cuddle parties ensures that learning is both informative and enjoyable.
In our cozy, safe space, we will start with icebreakers and the rules of cuddling for the evening. You will gain practice in setting boundaries, expressing your NO and delivering it with compassion.
Simultaneously, you will be encouraged to navigate our space with fearlessness and fun to ultimately discover your HEAVENS YES!
