Donation #20 – Cuddle Session

PROFESSIONAL CUDDLE SESSION! (REALLY!!)

Torus started her cuddling business in the summer of 2013. First inspired by the power of touch many years ago intuitively, she took a short massage course in Feb 2012 and has been practicing part time massage since. She also took her yoga teacher training later that same year. In the first few months of 2013 she thought of how so many people are deprived of loving touch on a daily and long term basis. Thus she started thinking of ways she could help with spreading the love not just through yoga and massage but through more of an intimate physical level. Cuddling is something she absolutely loves to do with loved ones and friends, and being a part of an open and loving community where people often cuddle together at events, she thought of how beneficial it would be to those who didn’t have access to such community and freedom. Thus cuddling as a business came about. Soon after deciding this is what she wanted to do, she found online others that had started to do this as well in other places. She feels she has an infinite supply of love to give and wants others to experience the same.

Researchers have discovered that Cuddling produces a hormone called “oxytocin” also known as the love hormone. This substance has many benefits in our physical and mental health, helping us to relax, feel safe and calm our fears and anxiety. The more our bodies experience oxytocin on a regular basis the happier we become as individuals and the better we feel about ourselves, the better we feel around others, the better we treat others, the happier they become, the better they treat others, and the world eventually becomes a happier and better place to live in.

Donation #16 – Dance Lesson

Barney Lee is a qualified Ballroom dance instructor in the Vancouver area. He has been dancing for over twenty years, and teaching for eight years.

After an initial arduous struggle with the UBC dance club to figure out the physics of partner-dancing and to persuade his unruly limbs to move to the music, Barney is now able to glide across the dance floor with grace and confidence. He has a passion for sharing his hard-won knowledge with others; encouraging those who might be struggling with dance to experience the joy of moving with music and a partner. Always fascinated with teaching, he still enjoys attending beginner classes to develop new and better teaching methods.

Trina Barclay is a local burner and dance enthusiast. She has always been enamoured with dance, though she has never had formal training until now. She started partner dancing in one of Barney’s classes five years ago after attending one Lindy Hop event. Partner dancing as a whole has been one of the best things to happen to her ever (aside from finding the Burning Man Community). She has now been helping Barney teach ballroom dance classes for the last three years at the Kitsilano Community Centre on Sunday evenings.

With this prize you’ll receive an hour of instruction for a couple or a small group in any one of these dances: Blues, Fusion, Lindy Hope (swing), Salsa, West Coast Swing; or any of the International Style Ballroom dances: Waltz, Slow Foxtrot, Quickstep, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Jive and Paso Doble.
