COZY & COCOA is a monthly celebration. Join this special edition of Cozy supported by the power of cocoa.

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:

  • 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 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

Location:

Flowland is a beautiful space in the heart of Montreal's Mile-End, where you'll have access to mattresses, cushions and blankets for your comfort.
