What you'll do

Socialize and relax with the help of a professional cuddler

We begin with 30-minute orientation - an easy way for us to get to know each other and build group trust, safety and compassion. I'll share with you the unique etiquette of our cuddle events and you can ask questions, too. After a break, I'll take you through a soothing series of activities to help you breathe, relax and let go. You'll have a chance to practice your newfound skills in paired and group activities that always have non-touch options. It's about this time that the magic starts to happen. You will be amazed how comfortable you feel as the event transitions to our cuddle laboratory. You may find yourself laughing, talking, holding hands, hugging, sharing stories and yes, cuddling!

I laugh a lot these days, but it wasn’t always like that. It took me years to realize I was touch deprived! I used my experience as a corporate trainer and coach to found Cuddle Sanctuary. It started out as something I needed for myself, but it’s evolved a lot! Now I have my basic needs for affection met every week. And I have the connection, community, laughter and fun I’ve always wanted.

Where you'll be

We'll meet in a spacious yoga studio in laid-back Venice. Our venue is home to all sorts of unique LA events. There is a rotating art installation in the space. We're minutes away from Venice Beach and also Abbott Kinney Boulevard - the "coolest block in America" - for art, fashion and food.

Fantastic experience! This was unlike anything I’ve ever done. I started the experience nervous and uncomfortable, but my hosts did a great job of welcoming. The entire cuddle sanctuary group made me feel at ease and I loved the orientation where we learned more about boundaries, consent and general empathy! While I didn’t actually end up cuddling with anybody (other than myself), I enjoyed soaking up all the love and positive vibes in the space.

I wanted something to step outside of my comfort zone on my trip to la. This was a comfortable, safe, and healing experience. Everyone was incredibly open and welcoming.

My first cuddle social. It was quite the experience! Setting was comfy and lovely, my hosts Suz and Steph were friendly and knowledgeable. It may not be immediately comfortable for everyone (it is an unconventional event after all), but Suz and Steph made us feel as comfortable possible. No one has to participate in anything they’re uncomfortable with. I walked away with lessons on drawing boundaries, a valuable new insight into my psyche, and a few new connections.

What a great experience! I had never done anything like this before, and I wasn't sure if I would feel comfortable. I like to try new things when on vacation, so I went for it. I am SO glad I did. Even just being among happy, open-minded people was refreshing. I was so impressed with how the session was structured and facilitated. It really allowed you to be in control and totally comfortable. It was a great learning experience and taught me about myself as well. Can't wait to go back!

Jean was fantastic. She has a warm, positive, accepting demeanor and instantly makes one feel completely at ease. She brought everything needed to have an awesome comfy cuddle in the park: cushioned mats, sheets, super-soft blanky. There's something quite magical about snuggling under the covers on a brisk, late-fall day, with the sun shining, and the beat of the city in the distance. I've never tried anything like it before, and based on my experience, I'll be doing this again! Highly recommended.

I went to Cuddle Sanctuary in the Park! It was lovely! I’ve been cuddling outside with Fei and a few others over the past year and it has been lovely. So happy to be outside…be in connection with everyone. Jean is just incredible in the way she guides everyone through the exercises, clear communication, full of kindness and honoring people, as well as having a sense of humor! People just love her and her authenticity! I loved getting to know the few I didn’t know there and reconnecting with all the people I already knew. It was fun, delightful and the perfect thing to do on a Saturday afternoon. The only thing I’d change is I’d have liked more time to have freeform cuddling time and maybe a smidge more space to do what we want, outside of cuddling with the whole group (though that was lovely)…I wanted more spooning time with others. Maybe having it a smidge long could help this!? Other than that…is was so refreshing, truly lovely and yummy to cuddle outside! Thank you Jean! Being one, myself, that facilitates Cuddle Up’s, I've had thoughts of doing cuddles outside in a group…I so love that you are doing this! YUM!
