Guided by Aviva Mohilner, come as you are. Leave nourished.

HELD is a guided practice using human connection and nurturing touch to help open your heart, calm your mind, relax your body and feed your soul.

HELD is a place for you to relax and ground. To leave your worries and devices at the door. To be with others who embrace the value of human connection and healthy touch, and believe in its power to feed mind, body and spirit.

HELD is not a "cuddle party," couples event, or sensual/sexual workshop. (Nothing wrong with that, it’s just not what we’re up to.) It is a guided experience with exercises in pairs, small groups, and as a collective that let you explore:

  • Eye contact and truly seeing one other

  • Listening with full presence and non-judgement

  • Oxytocin-releasing “HELD hugs”

  • Giving/receiving non-sexual touch 

  • Practicing communication and consent

  • Sharing experiences in a safe space

All comfort levels are welcome – whether you love this stuff or are a little nervous about it. We just ask for an open mind and willingness to stretch into potentially unfamiliar territory, all in a space committed to safety, communication and consent. 

NOTE: This is a drug/alcohol-free event. We also ask strongly (aka: require) that you don’t indulge beforehand, since it’s hugely important that everyone can feel safe and be fully present.
