Authentic relating and circling day

Welcome seekers of deep connection!

Have you ever desired deeper and more authentic connections with yourself, your friends and family, but not knowing how to do it? Do you sometimes censor parts of yourself in important relationships? Do you sometimes experience a relationship or yourself as unreal, hidden, masked, or superficial?

This day will give you basic tools to deepen your connections and get real with the people you care about. Activities may include meditations (to connect to yourself, your body and the other), structured dialogues (in pairs or small groups), exercises about sharing and owning your experience, and much more. No experience required. Just show up as you are.

How would the day look like?

We start with connecting to ourselves and our bodies, through silence, breath, and movement. Only when we are in touch with what is happening inside us can we express ourselves truthfully.

Next, we start observing and sharing our experiences in connection with others, using phrases like “Being with you I notice…” and “Hearing you say this, I notice…”. Through a practice of radically owned honesty, it becomes possible to fully express ourselves without harming others, thereby being completely transparent and honest, and at the same time nurturing the connection.

It’s a simple but radical practice, that can quickly lead to deep connection, authentic presence, and transformative self-insight. Great tools to improve your friendships, romantic relationships, and live life closer to yourself.
