The Event

INTRODUCTION:


We live in the technological age - 2019. For all the progress and speed it gives us the one major negative consequence for us as human beings living in this age, is the disconnection we have with one another.  

It is more difficult to communicate face to face, to interact physically and to touch one another today than ever before in the history of mankind.

Today MEN in particular think much more than we feel. With a depleted sensory body we become less of who we are! This exciting Male Empowerment event is designed to provide a safe, structured, and platonic environment to experience and explore intimacy, healing through cuddles and mindfulness (breathwork, relaxation meditation & tension release).


You are welcome to participate regardless of your religious beliefs, marital status, or sexual orientation. (Please note: Men with back or knee injuries, or those suffering from obesity may find it difficult to fully participate.)


Please Note: Most men experience some level or arousal during cuddling. This is completely normal...we're all guys. We just ignore it. There is no shame here!


What happens at the CUDDLE GROUP FOR MEN?

We will get together in a safe space with other men to explore intimacy, cuddles, embraces, hugs and touch through: (these exercise may vary)


  • Breathing exercises 
  • Meditation (Energy healing meditation)
  • Mindfulness practice - Opening of heart chakra
  • One to one massage / cuddles / hugging
  • Group cuddles
  • Mindful relaxation exercise 


Benefits of the Cuddle Group for men:


  • Experience mindfulness through intimacy & cuddles.
  • Deeply connection with yourself and other men
  • Healing the broken heart, trauma, tension or stress through cuddles and other exercises 
  • Experience balance, peace and joy.


DISCLAIMER NOTE:

If you are experiencing significant psychological or emotional health issues, the Men’s Cuddle Club may help, but is not intended to replace professional care by a certified therapist, psychologist or psychiatrist.
