Cuddle Party Facilitators go through a training and certification process to ensure that they have the skills to lead a group of guests through an event that is safe, fun, welcoming and a rich learning experience.

The first step is Foundations of Facilitation, a 3 day training for anyone looking to bring group facilitation skills into their work and life. Not everyone who takes Foundations of Facilitation goes on to Cuddle Parties. Many of them use the skills for their own events.

The second step is Cuddle Party Certification Training, a 4 month teleclass training that is specifically about Cuddle Party. During this time, Facilitators-in-Training create and facilitate 3 ‘Review Parties’ and receive an evaluation from their guests.

Change People’s Lives… Nurture Yourself… Transform the World.
