What we're about

We host FUN events in local parks for adults who love playing outdoors AND who love connecting deeply with others.

Why Come?
Just a few things that are possible:
- Share playful games and activities with other “Energetic Connectors”
- Learn about yourself by being open with others
- Support others in being open with you
- Deepen old friendships and create new ones
- Connect with your inner child by playing in nature
- Have FUN times laughing and giggling with others!


- In February 2019, we will start holding monthly meetups
- Events will be held at different parks in Austin
- Events will last about 3 hours

Our Vision
|This will evolve but here’s where we’re starting:

Part One: Pick Your Play!

- Play fun backyard games like frisbee, catch, boche, etc.
- Hang out on blankets, play Cards for Connection, sing songs, or whatever else you’re called to do
- We may also have 1-2 “extras” like an art table, face painting, walks in the woods, playful yoga, even ecstatic dancing!

Part Two: Facilitated Cooperative Movement Games
- We’ll invite everyone to play some interactive group movement games that are engaging and often HILLARIOUS!

Part Three: Facilitated Connection Games
- We’ll form a big circle and play games that support us in opening up and sharing deeply with each other. See links below for more info.

Please contact the host if you’d like to co-lead a playful activity, help out with logistics, or have ideas for making these events even more fun and connecting!
