Group Cuddling and Consent Workshop - Kassandra Brown

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Based on Cuddle Party Rules, this workshop takes us through the Rules of Cuddling with experiential exercises then sets us free to explore cuddling the way we want it. We'll create an environment for group platonic, consensual touch that is safe, fun, and nurturing. Community Cuddles brings together people from different walks of life to explore giving and receiving loving touch. Not only that, but it promotes a culture that is built around consent! You do not have to do anything that you don't want to at our Cuddle – you're completely at choice. Most people show up kind of nervous and leave relaxed, grateful, and really glad they came.
I'm looking forward to meeting, connecting, and working with you.


  • Clothes stay on for the whole event.

  • You do not have to touch anyone, ever.

  • You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. Please be specific in your requests.

  • Tears and laughter are both welcome.

I am Kassandra Brown, Professional Cuddler, Coach, and Educator, I believe that consensual touch has the power to change the world and create a kind yet powerful revolution. My work has taken me into being a yoga and meditation teacher, a homebirthing mom, the founder of ParentCoaching.org, a member of Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, a somatic sex educator, and now a Cuddlist. I love distilling my vast experiences into simple tools that uplift my clients’, friends’, and family’s lives enabling them to connect more deeply with each other, themselves, and the earth.
