Real intimacy is not just about sex, but about connecting without masks, beyond insecurities and projections, from a space of connecting with yourself and your own boundaries and desires first.
In this workshop, we will explore touch outside the sexual realm. Often, once we make eye contact with someone we like, there's an urge towards sex. But stepping out of a race to that destination, the world of cuddles, hugs and consensual touch can bring deepening to connecting and rich explorations.
Cuddling helps you to slow down life and to let go of stress. Scientific research reveals more and more health benefits of hugging: it slows your heart rate, reduces blood pressure, simultaneously reduces and the release of stress hormones and stimulates the release of hormones like oxytocin, the ‘happiness hormone.’ Being held reminds you of how loved you are. It invokes self-love and pleasure.
