A facilitated event to connect with people through relating exercises and touch/massage.
This is the monthly Connection Games event (formerly called "Cuddles & Connection), hosted at the Dragon's Nest and facilitated by me, Dave Booda.
For those of you who haven't been to our event, here's a little about it:
We start with a welcome circle, give people a run down of house rules, what to expect, introductions, etc... at this point the doors close, so everyone that's participating will have already arrived.
We then dive into some fun exercises to allow everyone to connect and fill up each other's cup in a safe, considerate way. The exercises aren't pre-planned, they're tailored to fit each group and determined (or created) on the spot!
After 2-3 hours of exercises with lots of switching partners, we'll do a closing circle and send everyone home with hearts and bodies full of connection!
If you're a couple and you'd like to come and just work with each other, you're welcome to do that, if you're a solo person and worried you won't know anyone — you're in good hands! (and good company) Lots of people come not knowing anyone, and it's a great way to meet new people with similar values.
If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
We're charging a little money, but if $ is tight please don't let that be a reason to not come. Email me and I'll see what I can do about a scholarship ticket.
***Note: Please refrain from wearing strong scents, it's an indoor space where we'll be close to each other, so strong scents can become a problem for some folks***
Is this a sex party? Are the exercises sexual in nature?
No, this is not a sex party and none of the exercises will be inviting sexual energy in any way. Senuality, being present and tuning in to how you feel in the presence of other bodies is part of it, but nothing explicitly sexual.
What should I wear?
This isn't a "dress to impress" event, we recommend wearing whatever makes you feel comfortable. PJs or whatever you would wear to lounge around your house would be brilliant.
Can I come if I don't know anyone?
Of course, in fact I see these events as a great way to meet new people in a low-stakes, safe environment. We often do work in small groups (2-4 people) and people get shuffled and mixed up the whole night, so you end up getting to meet and connect with a bunch of different people.
If I want to come with a partner is that okay? Can we work together the whole time?
Attending with a partner is great too! And yes, you're absolutely welcome to work together as much as you'd like. That can often be a really nice way to deepen an existing connection.
