More About Community Cuddles
Community Cuddle is about being the difference we want to see in the world, healing breaches of trust (election anyone?), and using touch and cuddling for weaving the threads of community tighter, especially between groups who often distrust one another (like wealthy people and homeless folks, townies and college kids, straight and queer). It’s about getting connected before we try to problem solve. It’s about letting our common need for safe, non-sexual touch create connection. It’s about trust, belonging, and consent.
Community Cuddles is for both new and experienced cuddlers and anyone curious about safe, consensual, non-sexual touch. Especially if you’re nervous. Especially if you’ve been hurt in the past and you’re not sure touch like this is possible but you hope it is and you want to find out but you might leave right after you get there. Yup. You’re welcome too. I’m also looking for those who are inspired to use touch for social justice and community healing to come to this event and become leaders helping make this event monthly and helping it spread to different cities. Interested? Let me know!
Facilitated with Cuddle Party rules and Welcome Circle. A few more words about touch: Human beings need loving, consensual touch. It reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and promotes a sense of belonging and emotional well-being. Consensual touch positively affects the way that we relate to other people and ourselves. Without touch, we suffer from something called skin hunger — making us feel lonely, isolated, stressed and unhappy with our lives.
The good news is that loving touch is abundant! Community Cuddles brings together people from different walks of life to explore giving and receiving loving touch together. Not only that, but it promotes a culture that is built around consent! You do not have to do anything that you don’t want to at Community Cuddles — you’re completely at choice.
