Cozy, with Dima

  • Flowland 5369 Boulevard Saint-Laurent, 310 Montréal, QC, H2T 1S5 Canada (carte)

Facilitated by Dima Haffar

Cozy
is a celebration of human connection. Cozy is a space for people seeking to explore creative and authentic connections with others, through platonic touch, heart sharing, presence, affection, movement, and play. It's a beautiful place to practice asking for what you want and saying no to the things you don't.

At Cozy you can:

  • Explore a heart connection regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity

  • Learn new ways to connect with strangers in a safe and intimate way

  • Practice giving and receiving with explicit verbal consent

  • Learn more about your desires, fears and boundaries

  • Feel free, accepted, appreciated, supported in safe, confidential and respectful space

  • Learn and practice the gift of the ‘no’

  • Fulfill inner-child urges (playing, nurturing, being held), while practicing adult skills (taking responsibility and communicating clearly)

  • Celebrate positive human connection

A few examples of possible exchanges at Cozy:

  • Hugging

  • Presence

  • Dancing with or without contact

  • Massage

  • Authentic conversations

  • Cuddling with one or many

  • extended eye-gazing

  • Sharing and playing in small groups

Therapeutic Benefits:

Scientific studies and years of personal experience demonstrate the benefits of touching and cuddling on psychological, emotional and physical health. By integrating a conscious approach to touch, one can achieve numerous benefits. Among others, we can observe:

  • Increased awareness of feelings, needs, and boundaries

  • Emotional release

  • Greater self-awareness

  • Increased oxytocin, a neurotransmitter that lowers blood pressure, and increases feelings of intimacy, bonding, joy, connection

  • Stress relief and a letting go

  • More effective ability to communicate clearly and authentically
