Hugging Party

Posted On: January 30, 2013

openingThere is vast literature of the benefits of hugging to the prematurely born or healthy infants and toddlers but not much research is available for the same for adolescents, adults or seniors.

We are a touch-deprived society. We are afraid to touch, afraid to ask for touch and yet afraid to ask or reach out for the touch we need.

A hugging party is a workshop instructing adult participants in the art of consensual and boundary-appropriate touch. The premise of hugging parties is the recognition of “need to be held and cuddled” is very close to and equally vital as more conventionally accepted human needs like thirst, hunger, and sex.

We like to invite you to come co-create this safe space in which women and men can begin to communicate more authentically and listen profoundly.

You will

  • feel safe – do as little as you desire – and will be encouraged to just be you.
  • create strong boundaries for yourself without shutting others down.
  • begin to be more open to others and able to give and receive comfortably.
  • be touched, valued and nurtured.
