Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to connect from the heart without using your eyes?

Here’s your chance to try 

In this blindfolded event, you’ll have several encounters with throughout the night. Each will be carefully guided, inviting you to be yourself, to communicate openly, explore consensual touch, and discover multiples layers and flavours of connection without vision.

The first half of the event will be totally blindfolded. In the second half, there will be more opportunity to explore a visual component.

Authentic Dating has already been a big hit in New Zealand, Australia, The UK, Germany and Switzerland, as well as The Netherlands. Here's what others have said:

"This has been the most positive experience I've had in meeting genuine souls with the intention of finding love/romance for over 6 years" - Matthew

"These workshops are fun, engaging, and held by an experienced and insightful facilitator. I am grateful to have been able to meet people I otherwise wouldn't have come across and to be able to delve straight in and share this interpersonal meditation together" - Tess

"Laurie led us through a series of games and exercises that allowed us to open up and create very real bonds with others and with our own selves. Many emotions were felt in the safest, most welcoming environment" - Jason

"Authentic Dating re-opened an old window for me in a new way. Heaps of fun too! And I did meet a very special person. We just got back from a weekend of Easter rock climbing. Highly recommend for anyone curious and keen to connect with depth & joy" - Luca

While we aim to achieve an even balance of genders and ages, this is not always possible. However, what is guaranteed are skills that you can apply to any relationship. Simply come with an open mind and ready to connect
