Regular Events in Vancouver

  • The Fourth Sunday – Vancouver Cuddle Party

Registration: vancuddle.eventbrite.ca

Facilitator: Jon Lehrer

I discovered Cuddle Parties when I was living abroad in Belgium, far from all my friends, and missing the loving community that I had back home. Good affectionate touch helps us thrive, and discovering this kind wonderful and supportive space really improved the quality of my life.

One of my favorite things about Cuddle Parties (besides the cuddling) is just how much you can grow and learn about yourself. You start to notice where you say “yes” when you want to say “no” (or vice versa!), where you’re comfortable asking, and where you’re not. And you start to build the emotional “muscle memory” for more ease and freedom in your daily interactions with others, all while enjoying some of the deepest most satisfying relaxation of the whole week. There’s some truly profound stuff happening here amidst the snuggles!

When I’m not running events, I might be busy being a math and science professional, playing music, talking about gender, enjoying the outdoors, learning new things, or well, cuddling!

What you can expect at my events: Soft floors, warm facilitation, and a fun, open space for you to play, explore, and find the touch you seek.

FacilitatorKarin Whittaker

Opening my home to Vancouverites seeking friendship ‘n’ cuddles is my current joy. Holding this container for consent practice and welcome touch is a privilege. I’m thrilled to be meeting all of you. Our Vancouver Cuddle community is growing and from all walks of life. I wish to display connection and affection toward my beloveds. And to you too, as well – to taste freedom from differences: age, gender, culture, status and relish in the nurturing, regardless – one human being to another.

I believe intrinsically we’re all good. We want to give and receive. We are playful at heart. And here, in a facilitated, structured event – a Cuddle Party – we revisit back to ourselves and back to one another through caring, delightful ways.

What happens at a Cuddle Party at Karin’s? A fun workshop for strengthening authentic communication. Cuddle ‘n’ social time to experience friendship, consensual touch, fruitful chatter. And a positive closing circle to deepen connections. As one of many eager Cuddle Party facilitators around the globe, I’m tapping into my community, responding. I believe Cuddle Party is about making the world a happier place – one cuddle at a time.
