Cosy Sunday Snuggles for Connection and Nervous System Health
Join us through the winter months for some heart warming snuggles in the centre of Forest Row. Dropping out of our over active minds and into the stillness of being. Our bodies relaxing as we exhale and hearts softening as we’re physically held and supported by one another. Encouraging the sweet spot of nervous systems regulation so that we can drop into deeper connection with ourselves and in loving presence with each other.
“I came away feeling so soft, relaxed and smiley. You held the space so beautifully, softly and clearly and even when I felt at my edges I was able to stay more peacefully with them. It felt really magical and expansive.”
The first half of this workshop is all about our nervous system health, placing the spotlight on the low level activated states of people pleasing, fawning, camoflaging and intellectualising. In this space you will;
– Learn how to spot the tell-tale signs of where you are in your nervous system
– Understand how to support your nervous system to come into a place of regulation
– Learn how to resource and nourish yourself, anchoring an embodied sense of inner safety
In the second half of the workshop there will be SNUGGLES of different varieties, shapes and colours. In this space you will;
– Explore ways to get your physical connection needs met when alone
– Be invited into your receptive yin nature, being held in surrender
– Experience different ways to be nourished by another person through physical connection
All exercises will be an invitation for you to tap into your deepest longings for connection in each moment, coming out of auto pilot and experiencing your authentic yes and no. This might look like:
– Being in self intimacy for the whole workshop and staying out of physical connection
– Having someone stroke your hair
– Being the big spoon for someone
– Being in the centre of a cuddle puddle
– Massaging someones hand
– Resting in eye gazing
This workshop will be a non sexual space, where physical connection will be offered from a heart centred place of nurture, love and support.
Investment for this workshop is £25.

A lateral flow test will be required on the day of the event
…May the snuggles commence!
Q&A
When are the other snuggle dates?
20th February (Sympathetic Fight & Flight)
20th March (Dorsal Freeze, Collapse, Dissociate)
24th April (Honouring our needs for connection and protection)
Will it be trauma informed? So that for people if stuff comes up it’s held and supported? Or will it start off from the place that assumes folk can dive right into intimacy?
The workshop will be trauma informed from the start, held and supported.The first half of the workshop will be all about the nervous system and learning to recognise if you find yourself in fawn,fight,flight,freeze,dissociate and ways to support your system back into regulation when you are both in and out of connection with others. The 2nd half of the workshop will be where physical connection is invited in. There will be 2 assistants with me during the workshop. If emotional stuff comes up for participants, the assistants will be there to support them to ground and come back into regulation. It wont be a space to process any particular trauma if it arises.
What’s the deal with lateral flow tests?
I recognise the spectrum of views regarding lateral flows tests and acknowledge the unreliability of them. As there will be close physical connection, asking for a test on the day felt like the ‘safest’ way for me to hold the space. It’s a decision that feels most in integrity with where I’m at with the covid situation. I get that this won’t resonate with everyone.
