This is a safe place where we can learn more about social anxiety, communication and understand that we are no different than everyone else. We all have fears about interacting with new people.  From an evolutionary stand point,  we have only been interacting with large groups of people for a blink of an eye. Even before the caveman days, we have been interacting within small tribes and as such, we have built-in mechanisms that are associated with that way of life.

These mechanisms are affecting our current paradigm of socializing in two ways:

1) Fear of meeting new people: When we meet new people a fear response is triggered. In tribal life meeting a person from a new tribe was a very rare occasion and often lead to blood shed. So it is natural to be wary of strangers.

2) Fear of lowering social status: In a tribe of 200 people, where everyone knows everyone, there is a great deal of pressure on each interaction, especially when it involves finding a mate. Imagine that you approached a female in the tribe and she denied your advances, everyone would know exactly where you fit in the attraction food chain. Your social status is now lowered and in turn, your access to resources like food, water and social opportunities would also decrease.

Back in these times, there was a great deal at stake when you met a new person, that isn't the case anymore. Evolution is a slow process and it is evident that many traces of tribal life still remain.

This social fear is one that we can now harness in a new way, and turn it into a powerful intuitive skill that can play a huge role in all your social opportunities.

Come join us and learn how to transform this fear into your greatest asset.
