Events and Links

My Facebook page for everything cuddly that I do. www.facebook.com/MaryCuddler

Cuddle Party: Find details about Cuddle Party events all over the world.

Meetup: Join the Utah Cuddle Club Group on Meetup.com to receive emailed announcements and details about my Cuddle Parties and Free Hug events.

Free Hugs. I announce my Free Hug events on the Utah Cuddle Club group on Meetup. It is very satisfying to offer hugs and see the smile it brings to peoples faces, even when they think I'm crazy. Any cuddlers are invited to join me to offer hugs together or you can just come and get a hug from me. If you know of an event or a venue that would enjoy Free Hugs, lets talk about it.

Snuggle Fest. Snuggle Fest is a body positive, non-sexual, clothing optional social event with a communication workshop and agreements similar to Cuddle Party. We have a Facebook Group for Snuggle Discussion and support. Join the Nourishing Connections Meetup to be notified of future Snuggle events.

International School of Temple Arts holds workshop events all over the world. I have attended Level 1 as a participant twice and as an Assistant once. I have also attended Level 2. I highly recommend this experience if you feel you are ready for it.


Let's meet. I am available to meet with you in a public place to chat for half an hour about any of my events or activities if you have questions or if you would just like to meet me before participating in a group event. Please email me to arrange a meeting.
