“From connection with yourself to connecting with others.”

We live in a society where we experience a growing lack of touch and connection. Which is too bad, because more and more research underlines the health benefits of cuddling. Cuddles lower stress levels in our body, release oxytocin (the ‘cuddle hormone’ that makes us feel good), lowers blood pressure and heart rate and makes us feel seen and loved.

A cuddleworkshop is a workshop focused on loving touch. It is an evening full of exercises which bring you in to contact with yourself and others. We begin gently, without touching each other, in order for everyone to keep up the pace, and gradually we build the intensity.
We always start with grounding exercises to land in our bodies and let go of the stress of our daily lives. From there we start connecting with others. The exercises are playful, fun and sometimes intense but always with a lot of love. You are always free to skip an exercise, no obligations whatsoever. The exercises are diverse and differ every time.
This workshop is focused on loving touch. We stay away from sexuality. Not because sex is something wrong but to fully experience what it is like to cuddle without any “final goal”.


All the cuddle workshops are focussed on loving touch but we organise different types of workshops.

"Regular" Cuddle workshops - this workshop is for everyone: you, your friends, couples, singles, from all backgrounds, genders, colours and flavours. Everyone is welcome to join for an evening of hugs and conscious contact!

Cuddle workshops for parents (to be) - this workshop is for parents. As (becoming) parents it is sometimes hard to find time to be with your loved one like you did before. The cuddle workshop for parents is an evening for parents to reconnect with their loved one in a special and playful way. Remembering the good old days and deepening the connection between each other.

Cuddle workshop for couples: This workshop is for those who would like to explore conscious contact and cuddling but feel that they want to share this with someone they know (partner or friend) instead of a stranger.

Cuddle workshop for LGBTQ+: This "Rainbow Cuddle workshop" is created to especially for the LGBTQ community. Cuddle workshops are ALWAYS open for everyone. we don't select on sex, gender or sexual preference. However we notice that the LGBTQ+ community is a little underrepresented in the regular workshops. Which is a shame because we want to bring cuddles to everyone! Please feel welcome to join for an evening of loving touch you beautiful Unicorns!
