Authentic Relating: An Interpersonal Meditation (full day immersion)
Sat Apr 9, 10:00 - Sat Apr 9, 17:30
Are you tired of chit-chatty convos that just skim the surface?
Are you seeking more genuine, present, heart-centred humans in your life?
Are you desiring a safe space to really see and be seen?
All parts of you are welcome to this full day deep dive into the enriching practice of Authentic Relating
Authentic Relating is an interpersonal meditation. It is the practice of listening and speaking from a place of presence and sensation, allowing us to weave richer and more truthful connections.
You are invited to explore your curiosity and vulnerability, in awareness of your boundaries. In pairs, threes and the whole group, we will play some Authentic Relating games, including 'Circling'.
Circling is an organic, in-the-moment interpersonal group process that’s equal parts art form, meditation, and group conversation — all designed to allow a visceral experience of connection and understanding of another person’s world, celebrating who and where they are right now.
Together, we will create a rich container to explore each of our human experiences: our secrets, treasures, and triggers. Through Authentic Relating and Circling, we can enquire, understand and celebrate the realness of interpersonal dynamics.
There will also be a half hour yoga practice at the beginning of the day to fully invite you into your body and ground you in the space.
