What we're about
What are Authentic Relating Games Nights?
What would it be like to have a playground where you can step outside of the box in the way you relate with other human beings and create more possibility for how that can look and feel to you?
What if you could feel close to someone and have that special "spark" in connection within only a few minutes of interacting with them?
All of that is possible in Authentic Relating Games Nights--evenings of fun, highly-interactive exercises that explore new ways of seeing, connecting and appreciating each other on a deeper level.
By ‘games’ we mean fun, highly interactive partner and group exercises that demonstrate and explore authentic relating, getting to know yourself better while learning to see and appreciate more about everyone you connect with. These games are NOT board games like Chutes & Ladders and checkers.
By ‘authentic’ we mean that there is no cookie-cutter mold for how you “should” be or what relating “should look like”. Everyone is a complete universe unto themselves, has a unique style, personality, and integrity that is perfectly *them*, and everyone is perfect and amazing as they are (including their belief that they aren’t.)
Games Nights give you a fully-embodied, yet accessible, introduction to conscious community and relating. So whether you're the type of person who loves personal growth and evolution in the relationship realm, or you're just tired of the same old boring conversations you typically have when meeting new people, you're in the right place.
Why play Authentic Relating Games?
Have you ever had the type of connection with someone where both of you were totally enamored in the conversation and didn't want to leave? Have you ever had that feeling with a whole group of people? In Games Night, we consciously create the space and possibility for such nourishing experiences to occur, whether you're meeting someone for the first time, or you've known them your entire life.
Games Night creates an open, vast playground where we can be seen and appreciated for exactly who we are, as we explore outside the confines of "normal", superficial conversation and social sleepwalking. It's where we actually experience and practice the art of transformation (not just talking about it), by allowing ourselves to show up fully and be completely impacted by others.
What can I expect?
Laughter, fun, nourishment, anxiety/excitement (while learning the difference), relaxation, sparks of connection, feeling ALIVE, insights, challenges, love, REALness, personal growth, transformation.
Who can play?
Anyone! Whether single, dating, young, old, etc., it doesn't matter. Anyone who feels a desire to feel closer with people, and is willing to try something new. (NOTE: These are NOT singles or dating events).
PLEASE NOTE: These games nights are based off of the work of Authentic World. We are not official Authentic World facilitators, but have a passion for their work and community building.
