Workshops and group events

TenderTouch provides beautiful connection & cuddle evenings and workshops.

Connection and positive touch are nice to receive and necessary. Many people experience it that way and need it. There is multiple evidence that positive touch based on trust and mutual respect is good for body, soul, and spirit. Being connected, or experiencing yoga (which means being connected) with for example yourself, the people around you or nature helps you relax your system and communicate better. For example through the production and better flow of oxytocin in your body, also called the connection and compassion hormone (pet name: the cuddle hormone). Through positive touch, the production of oxytocin is achieved in a very natural way. 

You can expect the following during a cuddle evening or workshop:

  •   Contact with yourself & each other
  •   Being together
  •   Give & receive
  •   Trust
  •   Specify needs, wants and boundaries
  •   Connection & respect
  •   Cuddling & touch
  •   And above all have fun together

By attending an evening or a workshop you will be empowered in real life when it comes to intimacy and expressing desires and boundaries. In addition, it is primarily intended as a very nice, relaxing and pleasant experience. The evenings and workshops include a joint opening, a relaxation meditation, followed by a number of exercises in pairs and with the entire group. You are always free to participate in exercises or not. After the exercises, it's time to relax, cuddle or just be. All activities organized by TenderTouch are about pure platonic connection and touch.

The open workshops are not balanced on the equal number of men and women. This for several reasons. The workshops and evenings are not meant to make romantic connections. You can experience the exercises with all the people in the group, male or female or gender fluid. In addition, there is a lot to learn about your own thoughts and feelings about contact with fellow participants of the same gender or participants who may identify themselves as gender fluid. An extra learning and experience opportunity for you maybe. And the experience learns that people who attended the workshops and connected with people of the same sex, experienced this often as very positive and moving.
