We use the practices of Authentic Relating to facilitate a safe space where presence, empathy, deep and connection arise organically. That creates a nourishing, often transformative experience which allows for progressively deeper insight, understanding, exploration and expansion in ourselves, our relationships and lives in general.
If you long for more depth, authenticity and realness in your life – both with other people and in relationship with yourself this workshop may be for you! If you yearn for a community of mindful, conscious and aware peers and are ready to go beyond quick-fix self-help approaches and superficial law-of-attraction type spirituality… instead dive into the rawness, aliveness and richness of fully experiencing what arises in the present moment when we come together with awareness and the intention to drop our masks and show ourselves fully…
All are welcome… alone, with a partner, or with friends… simply bring the desire to connect with others at a deeper level.
Authentic Relating – Let’s Get Beyond Small talk
Ever wanted to skip the trivial small talk with folks you meet here and in our lives? Here’s a great opportunity to try some new ways of interacting and explore the ways we communicate. Authentic Relating games are interactive group exercises that explore ways of seeing, connecting, and appreciating yourself and others at a deeper level. There’s much more juiciness available in all our relationships when we invite staying present and with our truth while feeling, hearing and connecting with others in deeper levels of opportunity. Join us to drop into presence at the festival and give yourself the gift of more meaningful conversations with old and new friends as we enter the magic of Unifier!
Authentic Relating – Diving into Deep Connection
Using the practices of Authentic Relating and Circling we’ll create a safer space to drop into shared vulnerability, increasing personal feelings of closeness and intimacy while learning how to provide this for others. Through exercises meant to get each other’s worlds we’ll explore fears and desires and how we can best hold them with empathy and compassion…. developing new tools for relating to ourselves and each other in deeper connection. All are welcome.. alone, with a partner, or friends old and new!
