About this event

Authentic Connections is a powerful approach to cultivating connection and collaboration with others through greater integrity and empathy. This results in more mutually rewarding relationships.

We as humans need to be in connection with other humans in order to thrive, be productive and creative. This workshop style meet up offers guided exercises and tools that can be applied in everyday life with everyone we encounter.

The tools provide a map to navigate conflict; there is no other practice or modality that offers tools as effective and easy to apply in resolving conflict and creating more trust and positive regard between individuals and groups. Authentic Connections shifts the paradigm of conflict from something to be avoided to an opportunity for stronger connections and relationships, more empathy between both individuals and groups, and a path towards co-creating relationships that honours each person’s unique values and perspectives.

Authentic Connections brings the focus to the here and now, and invites us to shed the social scripts we often lean on to navigate through social interactions. The deepest sense of intimacy and the greatest sense of aliveness are concentrated in the mystery of the here and now, where we never know where we are headed and what we will discover along the way. In an authentic conversation that lives in the here and now, we are riding the very edge of the unknown, letting go of planning for the next response or question and allowing the aliveness of the unknown to be the only source of inspiration. One of my favourite maxims of the practice is to follow the aliveness, wherever it may lead. Time and again, this simple guiding principle has steered my conversations and interactions with people to the most fascinating, enriching, and unpredictable places. We have discovered that authentic connecting provides a space for people to feel a sense of belonging – in themselves and in the world. All parts, all dimensions, all emotions, all aspects that make us human are welcome in this practice.
