What we're about

We host FUN events in local parks and other venues for adults who love freely expressing themselves and connecting & playing with others!

Why Come?
Just a few things that are possible:
- Share playful games and activities with other "Expressive Connectors”
- Learn about yourself and find more Freedom of Expression by being open and authentic with others
- Support others in being more authentic and free
- Deepen old friendships and create new ones
- Connect with your inner child by expressing yourself and playing in nature
- Have FUN times laughing and giggling with others!

Details
- In 2022, based on Covid constraints, we'll be hosting several types of events in Austin and Online. Here's a summary

1. Expression and Connection Open Mic: Fun outdoor events at restaurants or other venus where people can sing, read poetry, share stories, jokes, anything expressive. We'll also play "Connection" games and do SingAlongs! See this page for details: https://atxopenmic.weebly.com/

2. Energetic Connection Games: Bring your inner 8 year old to the park! We'll 1) play backyard games (frisbee, kickball, volleyball, etc) 2) I'll lead group "Movement" games which are REALLY FUN and energetic... 3) I'll lead "Connection / Authentic Relating Games" where we get to share openly with each other in a fun, connecting way.

3. Expression & Connection Meetup: We'll meet in public venues like Central Market at 1-2 benches and I'll lead us through a variety of fun, connecting activities that let us playfully explore / expland our Self Expression!

4. Online Expression & Connection Meetup: Same as #3 but online. It's amazing how we can have fun and connect and play with each other with the willingness & right activities!
