      Cuddle Party! Dublin - April '19 Official Cuddle Party Event

      Cuddle Party returns to Dublin City! :)  Cuddle Party (official event) is a 3 hour event that provides an opportunity to learn more about consent, boundaries and how to fully honour and respect your own boundaries and those of others. It's a great way to increase your confidence when asking for what you want, it's also a great way to meet new friends, connect with partners and pals in a soulful new way and be part of a warm, safe and huggable tribe. The evening starts with a short workshop on boundaries, consent, communication and non-sexual conscious touch, followed by a couple of hours to put what you’ve learned into practice by enjoying and exploring touch. (Think hugs, back rubs, spooning and just general non-sexual snuggling.) You can even come to Cuddle Party simply to chat and sit with other kind and caring folk - it's always your choice how much or how little you would like to participate. Cuddle Party is a place to truly unwind, take time for yourself and feel good. I am Gráinne Carr, an experienced Life and Business Coach and I facilitate a variety of workshops and trainings including those on Consent and Boundaries. Having trained with the creators of Cuddle Party (, I am one of only two qualified facilitators in Ireland. At Cuddle Party, I will lead you and the other guests through an orientation, where you’ll learn to make easy, respectful requests, communicate clear boundaries and where we’ll go over the simple rules. Then you’ll have plenty of time to relax, chat, cuddle or just hang out with a lovely group of people! Cuddle Party is not a sexual event, everyone remains clothed and agrees to the Cuddle Party Rules, some of which are: * Arrive on time for the welcome circle/orientation. * Ask for what you want and get a verbal “yes” before proceeding. * You don’t have to touch or cuddle anyone you don’t want to, ever! Some people are already comfortable with touch and can’t wait to be in a place where boundaries are respected and they can feel free to feel at ease and relaxed. Others aren’t even sure they want any touch at all, but come to explore some communication skills. Others are just curious about what it might be like. Whatever your reasons, a Cuddle Party is a great playground for discovering more about yourself, for exploring new ways of connecting with others, or simply enjoying a relaxing, cosy evening with other cuddly and respectful people. At Cuddle Party you may experience an increased sense of well-being and belonging, a boost in compassion and playfulness, a decrease in blood pressure and afterward have a better night's sleep. It's quite normal to walk in not knowing anyone and walk out of cuddle party feeling happy and at ease, feeling like you had a really fun and relaxed time being with good friends. :) Nurturing and consensual loving touch is good for maintaining healthy blood pressure, a strong nervous system and a balanced emotional health, we all benefit from connection with other beings. If you wish for more connection in your life or simply like the idea of sharing your time and even hugs with others and making more friends then we'd love to see you there. Tickets for this 3 hour event are €20 for waged, €10 for students and unemployed.
