NYC February 17 Cuddle Party ™
Sunday, February 17, 2013 from 2:30 PM to 6:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
What you'll find at my Cuddle Parties
I love to host parties. What you could expect to find at my Cuddle Parties is a cozy room, with padded floors, soft lights and music, yummy snacks and interesting people. As a Cuddle Party facilitator I am a warm, friendly, welcoming host, that helps participants feel comfortable and taken care of:
- by inviting them to share feelings and non-sexual touch,
- by demonstrating and practicing expressing desires,
- by responding to others requests with clear yes's and no's,
- by setting boundaries
- and by encouraging participants to stretch in order to fully enjoy the experience.
Doors open at 2:30 PM to check-in, change and socialize. The Welcome Circle will begin at 3:00 PM. You must be present for the Welcome Circle where we review the rules of cuddling and create a safe cuddle zone. For this reason no-one will be allowed into the party after the Welcome Circle begins at 3:00 PM. Please allow sufficient travel time and be on time!.
Bring pj's, sweats, yoga clothes or other comfy, loose-fitting clothes (shirts and long pants) to change into (no shorts please or nightgowns!).
Light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are included.
Location: 110 Riverside Drive, Apt 2C, NY, NY10024 Entrance on West 83rd St
Public Transportation: Subway: #1 to 86th St or 79th St.
Check www.hopstop.com for best public transportation directions including street maps.
If you are driving, allow 10 – 40 minutes to find street parking. There are several parking garages in the area. If you have not found street parking by 2:30 PM, please be prepared to park your car in a garage. You can get driving directions at www.mapquest.com
If you are early (before 2:30 PM), there is a Barnes & Noble at Broadway and 82 Street. Sorry but we won't be able to admit cuddlers until 2:30 PM.
Cancellation Policy: To receive a ticket refund, you need to cancel within 48 hours of the Cuddle Party event start and be replaced by a Cuddler on the waiting list. FYI - There's always a waiting list for men and usually for women too!
If you come to a Cuddle Party and decide to leave at the end of the Welcome Circle you will receive a full refund. That's Cuddle Party policy.
I will have a list of registered participants, so despite what EventBrite says, you don't need to bring a paper copy of your confirmation.
When & Where
Jamie's Cuddle Party ™
What is a Cuddle Party?
A structured, safe workshop on boundaries, communication, intimacy and affection. A drug and alcohol-free way to meet fascinating people in a relaxing environment. A laboratory where you can experiment with what makes you feel safe and feel good.
This playful, fun workshop has been a place for people to rediscover non-sexual touch and affection, a space to reframe assumptions about men and women, and a great networking event to meet new friends, roommates, business partners and significant others.
Can Cuddle Party restore your faith in humanity? It just might. But at the very least, you'll have a great time, and leave feeling relaxed and inspired.
