"At 4 p.m., Shanna and I sit cross-legged on my sheet-covered couch and face each other. She asks if both of us are sober—we are.
She prefaces that only platonic, non-sexual touching is permitted.
When I ask her why cuddling has risen in popularity, she says,
"Most people are either trying to get what they never got or haven't had in a long time. People want to feel taken care of.
They need contact. Technology gives the illusion of connection, but it's superficial. Touch nourishes your cells."

"Although we may live in a connected world, it may not always put us in the best position to benefit from the rewards of human connection through physical contact. Hence, the rise of the professional cuddler and cuddle parties. Similar to a massage therapist, you can hire a practitioner for an hour-long session for around $80. Whether you're into hugging, spooning or just holding hands, the point is to relax, get some oxytocin pumping through your brain and chill."

"One of my absolute favorite things about this event was the variety of workshops that was offered, from Mastro’s non-toxic DIY graffiti, to yoga and medicine bag making- there was an outlet for every interest. I attended a Crystal Healing and essential oils workshop lead by the talented and kind Shanna Marie. Her wonderful workshop set up positive intentions for a blissful weekend. Through crystal meditation and a quick lesson on essential oils and chakras, she helped rebalance our energy and left us feeling absolutely radiant!"
