When I first discovered “hugging for a long time” almost 20 years ago, it was SO powerful. I remember thinking, “How is it everyone doesn’t know about this!?”. Newcomers to my workshop are surprised by the sublime sense of comfort, safety and connection that is available, even when you don’t know the people you are hugging.
I strive to set ground rules that create a safe container for this meditative ritual based on non-sexual touch. I address the possibility of sexual energy being present and how to contain it so that our deep desire to feel connection to ourselves and others is our focus here.
Though this sort of practice is not yet “mainstream”, it is deeply human. As when we were held as infants by our caretakers, even as adults our bodies benefit naturally from being held. Come join us this Sunday in Hollywood and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
The requested donation is $40 for this 3 hour event, but no one is turned away for lack of funds. If that is too much, just pay what you’re able. RSVP, as space is limited.
