Cozy & Cacao is a summer celebration of love and authentic connection in the heart of the Laurentians!
Join us for a special edition of Cozy in Val-David, supported by the power cacao from Guatemala!
Cacao is a truly amazing fruit that contains anandamide the ‘bliss molecule’. Cacao releases dopamine and endorphins in the body which is known to activate the heart, which can help us work through blockages, let go of negative energies, cultivate inner alignment, and support authentic connections with others.
What is Cozy?
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:
Dancing with or without contact
Cuddling with one or many
Sharing and playing in small groups
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
Increased oxytocin, a hormone 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
