gather at 12:30; event starts promptly at 13:00 Saturday 11 March 2023

Benefits include reduced stress and anxiety, improved mood, deeper connections with others, and a greater sense of well-being. They also provide an opportunity to practice communication, consent, and boundary setting in a supportive and respectful environment.

Physical touch plays an important role in self-care. Let’s create a space to explore the benefits of touch in a supportive and respectful environment.
