Cuddle Club Manchester
We invite you to come and sink into the world of platonic (without romance or sex) touch. This clothed workshop is open to all those that identify as male regardless of sexuality or body type (including genital configuration). The invitation is to you is to come on a journey of discovery so you can connect with what touch means to you and to identify any patterns you may be holding related to male touch. You will be encouraged to explore the affirming nature of such touch and the gifts it may bring. A space will be held where every man is accepted for exactly who he is.
Being able to connect with touch without sexualising it allows us to go back to a state of innocence and bliss of just being in our bodies. In addition this allows us to learn about what is there for us in our relationship dynamics. The environment that we create is one of open-heartedness, fun and healing.
The workshop starts by working with boundaries (ours and yours) to promote confidence and allow you to authentically connect with what feels right for you and what touch you want or don’t want from others. You will also have the opportunity to experience touch which you might not otherwise be able to have in a safe, platonic, obligation free environment, and to connect with the art of receiving. There will be further opportunities to ask for other touch that you want which can of course include a cuddle!
This event will be useful for those who want to learn to:
• Practice their boundaries
• Say “No,” without guilt
• Find their “Yes!”
• Connect with what they want and ask for it
• Obtain the benefits of platonic touch
• Improve their communications and social skills
• Build their confidence
• Be able to receive
• Connect with self-acceptance
Touch is an instinctive, natural language that we can all speak and understand. It’s essential for stimulating our nervous system and promoting healthy physical development. It is also critical for our mental and social development. We will connect with the beneficial effects of conscious touch and the resultant natural release of the feel good hormone oxytocin to bring you to a place of peace, empowerment, growth and self-connection. Did you know that it's a proven fact that just twenty seconds of physical contact can lift your mood for the whole day as it releases oxytocin?
