I can’t believe I am sharing an article from The NY Post but this speaks to what my core belief is: “Cuddling/Platonic Touch has the power to drastically improve our well being.”
This state of mind is called “flow” or an “altered” or “non-ordinary state of consciousness” where “action and awareness start to merge.” Our sense of self vanishes. Our sense of time as well. All aspects of performance, both mental and physical go through the roof,” write Steven Kotler and Jamie Wheal, authors of “Stealing Fire: How Silicon Valley, the Navy SEALs, and Maverick Scientists are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work.”
For me, coming from the world of yoga and meditation – I have experienced what “non-ordinary state of consciousness” is. I have also experienced this state of “flow” during cuddling sessions.
Take out any need to “put on the mask of the personality/expectations” and you can meet your truest self. A session with a Cuddlist can be that experience.
