What we're about


In response to recommendations around coronavirus and the high-contact nature of our events, all in-person Authentic Relating meetups are canceled through the month of March.

However, I WILL continue facilitating and participating in Authentic Relating and Circling through this online platform and would love to see your faces there! https://www.authrev.org/connect

Connection is so crucial especially in times of stress/fear/isolation for soothing the nervous system... we just have to get a little more creative about how we support each other. Thankful that the online COnnect community is ahead of the curve and welcoming new folks with open arms and hope to see you there.💛


Authentic Relating (AR) is a growing community hosting facilitated events that invite folks into deeper connection with self and others.

These events are part mindfulness.

Part games night.

Part communication skill-building in a play-meets-meditation sandwich.

We are inclusive, welcoming of all, and not affiliated with any organization religious or otherwise.

I knew no one at the first Authentic Relating event I attended and walked away feeling so deeply connected to myself and a room full of previous strangers. If Brene Brown is offering the what, Authentic Relating is offering the how.

We practice at AR at CONNECTion Lab every Tuesday night at TheatreWorks.
We practice AR at Delta Groove Yoga monthly.

Come connect and practice with us!

Here's a quick video to give you a better idea of what it is and why we practice:
