Coming to Los Angeles June 9-11, 2017



Hi, I’m Jean Franzblau, Founder of the Cuddle Sanctuary Workshop Facilitator Training Program in Los Angeles. I teach people who want to bring more warmth and connection into the world how to expertly lead their own “touch positive” community events.

“Your workshops changed my life.”

I often hear these words from our passionate, die-hard participants. It’s incredibly gratifying to create an experience for people that delivers the human contact and sense of community they crave. I’ll be hand-selecting a limited number of students to learn the secret sauce of what makes Cuddle Sanctuary tick. Participants will leave the program with the skills, experience and practice they need to lead their own cuddle workshops. There will also be a few slots available for students who want to take a deep dive into our Cuddle Sanctuary community yet don’t have a plan to lead workshops themselves.

This program will delight, challenge and change you.

screen-shot-2016-10-27-at-8-45-21-pm When you put a group of human beings together who care as deeply about people and the world as the fans of Cuddle Sanctuary are, it creates a potent alchemy. When you add the experienced facilitation and world-class program design that I’ll be bringing you, you can expect fireworks. Besides the personal growth you’ll experience and the new friendships that will emerge, you’ll also have the confidence and certification to lead workshops that truly and deeply help people. We’ve put on over a hundred events in Los Angeles and new people keep finding us every week. Our BuzzFeed video received over seven millions hits – clearly the message of healthy, human connection is hitting a chord in our touch-deprived culture. With a Cuddle Sanctuary Workshop Facilitator Certificate, you have an opportunity to literally be the change you wish to see in the world. This thirty-hour program includes three days of hands-on classroom education. A detailed agenda is here. You’ll receive training documents including a workbook, audio file and workshop guide.There will be practice sessions, demonstrations, mini-lectures, one-on-one coaching and lively discussions. There will also be time to digest what you’re learning, socialize and if you’d like – cuddle! screen-shot-2016-10-27-at-8-49-09-pm“I really like the pace and format of the training, it went so quick!” Frank Whitaker – Student, Certified Workshop Leader “This training exceeded my expectations…I feel lucky and grateful for the opportunity I had with this course, with Jean Franzblau, Fei Wyatt and their amazing team.” Tom Rees – Student, Certified Workshop Leader   You could spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to facilitate these events yourself. Or simply let me show you how. I’ll be sharing all of my secrets, tips and techniques that create the social safety, camaraderie and magic moments that make Cuddle Sanctuary – Cuddle Sanctuary!

Dates and Tuition

We offer training several times a year in Los Angeles. As you can see, we trade off between our workshop leader training and our professional cuddler training. Here’s our calendar for 2017:

Date Training Type
April 7-9, 2017 Professional Cuddler
June 9-11, 2017 Workshop Leader
September 1-3, 2017 Professional Cuddler
November 10-12, 2017 Workshop Leader

You can choose to attend one training or get a steep discount when you register and pay for both. These rates are valid through July 31st:

Professional Cuddler Training $695
Workshop Leader Training $695
Both Trainings $1,195

If you’re someone who prefers to pay in installments – I can arrange that. You would just need to be fully paid before your first day of training.

If need be, you can change your mind and get 80% of your money back – as long as it’s 30 days before your first event.

I realize that life happens. If you need to postpone a training session, I can accommodate you in a future one as long as space is available. You must attend your training within one year of purchase. On my end, if a session has low enrollment, I reserve the right to postpone it.

I can accept two returning students per training. (Returning students pay 50% of the regular tuition.)
