Event Details

Dear Friends,

Hope you’re enjoying our rainy season! 🙂 Weather Permitted, we, Raelians of the Bay Area, are thrilled to extend an open invitation to our upcoming “Free Hugs” event, where we celebrate the incredible power of a simple act—a warm and heartfelt hug. In a world where we often rush through our busy lives, it’s essential to pause and acknowledge the profound benefits that a genuine hug can bring.

Event Details:

Date: Sunday Feb 11

Time: 11am-2pm

Location: San Francisco @ Dolores Park

Why Join Us?

1. The Healing Touch: Hugging is more than just a physical gesture; it’s a powerful form of connection. Studies have shown that hugging releases oxytocin, the “love hormone,” which can reduce stress, and anxiety, and even alleviate physical pain. Embrace the opportunity to experience this healing touch firsthand.

2. Bonding and Connection: Hugging fosters a sense of belonging and connection. It deepens our relationships and strengthens our social bonds. Whether you come with friends or as a solo adventurer, you’re bound to leave with new connections and a heart full of warmth.

3. Share the Love: By participating in our Free Hugs event, you’ll be spreading positivity and love in your community. A hug is a universal language of kindness, transcending barriers of language, culture, and background. Join us in creating a ripple effect of compassion.

4. Boost Your Mood: Hugging triggers the release of endorphins, those feel-good chemicals that can lift your spirits and improve your mood. Say goodbye to stress and hello to a brighter outlook on life.

5. Break Down Barriers: In a world sometimes marked by division, a hug can break down walls and bring people closer together. Our event is a safe, inclusive space for everyone, regardless of age, gender, or background.

How to Join:

It’s easy! Simply come to our event at the designated time and location. Look for our friendly “Free Hugs” poster sign (as the design you see here.) We encourage you to bring your friends and family, or come solo and make new friends along the way. 🙂

Remember: Spread the love and positivity, not just during our event, but every day.

Let’s Hug it Out!

Join us as we celebrate the beauty of human connection, the warmth of a hug, and the boundless benefits it brings. Let’s come together at Dolores Park, share smiles, and make this world a warmer, kinder place, one hug at a time.

We look forward to seeing you at our “Free Hugs” event on Sunday, Feb. 11, and sharing the love. (Weather permitted.)

Warm (and dry) regards,
