How we communicate shapes our world. Whether it's with ourselves, our friends, our romantic partners, or with coffeeshop strangers, our lives are constantly affected by an interpersonal play-space that we barely understand. Until now! Authentic Relating Games are a collection of extensively tested, masterfully facilitated experiences that give players a hands-on taste of both the joy and skills of interpersonal connection. 

Empathy training of the sort offered by Authentic Relating has been shown to reduce bullying in schools, decrease expulsion and detention rates, and even improve creativity and innovation at work.  Our games help players tune into their intuitive truth and see the world through another's eyes. We challenge players to listen and reflect in realtime, to share their emotional state, to notice and reach into their desire, and to ask for what they truly want in the moment. From meditative depths of presence and ecstatic heights of joy, to somber melancholy and heart-pounding fun, we guide an experience all the way through the human condition. 

The Austin Love Juggernaut is inspired by the work of the San Francisco Authentic World community, the Boulder Integral Center, Nonviolent Communication and Integral practices, and Games Nights around the world. We meet multiple times a week at our Center for Conscious Relating (the upstairs rooms of Casa de Luz) to enact verbal and physical "games" which help us tune into ourselves, each other, and the connections between.  Come play with us!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
