Over dit evenement
Are you tired of small-talk this festive season (and always!)?
Are you seeking more genuine, present, heart-centred humans in your life?
Are you keen to learn a bunch of communication games that you can use to connect more deeply with your family/friends/colleagues/lovers this Christmas?
If the answer to one, two or three of these questions is YES, on the 22nd December you are invited to grab a spiced chai and indulge yourself in a juicy, connective evening of Authentic Relating games!
❤️🔥Authentic Relating is a ground breaking social technology that enables you to heartfully, playfully and courageously connect, using the tools of radical honesty and active listening. The practice invites you to drop deeper into presence, embodied awareness and permission to express whatever is alive within you and the ‘we-space’ between you and other(s).
🎁Come and meet a whole bunch of vibrant, fascinating characters, and practice communication skills you can gift to your friends & family this Christmas and beyond!
✨Games will be played in pairs and small groups, which will be configured at random.
🫂 We’ll end the evening with an open lounge space for those who want to keep hanging out!
🤫Everything shared in the workshop is consensual and confidential.
i to i Authentic Relating workshops have already been a big hit in Amsterdam, Berlin, Melbourne, Auckland, San Francisco and beyond! Here's what others have said:
This was a game changer for me. I'm blown away on a daily basis as to how easy communicating and relating has been since doing Laurie's incredible workshop" - Andy
"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
I live with complex PTSD and anxiety so in the past I have really struggled to open up to people and build meaningful connections. Discovering Authentic Relating has been a life changer and both my therapist and I are thrilled with how my confidence has blossomed in recent months. Laurie's time and generosity really means the world to me" - Sarah
"The 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 into deeper connection" - Tess
The space holder
I'm Laurie (he/him), a queer British-Kiwi who’s current home-base is Amsterdam. My passion is creating spaces that cultivate healthy, thriving human-to-human relationships, helping people take off their masks, feel their sensations and celebrate their aliveness on Earth. Since 2019, I have organised and facilitated hundreds of Authentic Relating, Dating and Embodiment workshops in Oceania and Europe. My training includes the Authentic Life Course, The Connection Institute and ISTA. I have facilitated at internationally acclaimed festivals such as Stretch, and organisations such as ART International.
My workshops have sparked thousands of nourishing connections, turning many strangers into life-long friends. I look forward to holding space for you!
