An Evening of Authentic Relating: A Practice In Human Connection (Philly)


Aug 28, 2019
06:45 PM until 09:30 PM


Skip the small talk and dive into meaningful human connection with Authentic Relating.

Join us for a nourishing afternoon of Authentic Relating, a practice in presence, vulnerability, and connection. We will guide you through a powerful collection of creative practices/exercises that were specifically designed to awaken self-awareness and foster a greater understanding of, and deeper connection with one another.

Every event is a unique experience; no two events are the same.

Join us solo or bring friends! Come play, be inspired, make new friends, and discover how nourishing it is to share space and connection with other conscious humans. We look forward to sharing this powerful practice with all of you!

We have skillfully crafted this event to invite you to:

  • Challenge your social patterns

  • Explore new ways of being with one another

  • Co-Create meaningful interactions

  • Be Reminded of our fundamental similarity: being human



Warning! Side effects of practicing Authentic Relating may include:

  • Increased Empathy

  • Emotional Intelligence

  • Heightened Self Awareness

  • Listening Skills

  • Piqued Curiosity

  • Greater Joy

  • Playfulness
