What we're about

Authentic Relating & More is an incubator, a laboratory and a catalyst for an emerging authentic culture. It is soil from which authentic people and conscious communities grow.

We embody authenticity, presence, truth and compassion in our day-to-day lives and relationships - and with gather to practice and grow in our skills.

We invite people of all races, nationalities, spiritual beliefs, sexual orientations, gender identities, social and economic statuses and political beliefs to join us in this exploration.

Some of our core values... - surrendering to present-moment experience
- being fully alive, engaged, and grounded in the body
- following curiosity
- respecting ourselves and each other
- expressing from vulnerable transparency
- owning our experience
- seeing the innocence and good intentions in people, including ourselves
- connecting from the heart
- deepening our understanding of how we impact each other, and letting that matter
- treating relationship as an awareness practice
- deepening intimacy
- sharing togetherness in an attitude of play and not-knowing

We offer a variety of events:

- Transformational Games: Come for some fun and potentially surprising insights. We interact with each other through various relational games for everyone to get a taste of what we are about. These games do not include board games, they may include gazing into someone's eyes, speaking your truth in the moment, or revealing through your body how you are feeling right now.

- Circling: This is a practice of non-judgmentally being with each other in a group conversation. We are looking at self and other in contact with the present moment from a place of curiosity. This tends to be more intimate and vulnerable, happens in smaller circles, and can include strong emotions. People often feel deeply seen. Relational blind spots can be revealed through the process. Please read through our event descriptions before signing up, as this is not for everyone.

- Classes: Our facilitators often offer instructional events for increasing skillfulness, practicing presence, expressing authentically, sharing our authenticity in many contexts, etc.

- Community events: such as potluck socials, informal gatherings - we hang out with the idea to include a similar level of authenticity in our interactions as we have practiced in our more structured events.

We are largely inspired by and loosely associated with Authentic World, The Circling Institute, Circling Europe, Authentic Revolution, Authentic Portland & Authentic Seattle: we highly recommend their events and workshops.

If you need any questions answered before deciding to come, please reach out, we would love to hear from you! Thanks and looking forward to playing with you.

Psychic Spectrum: Map Your Soul w/Intuitive Eye Readings, Talk, Audience Samples

Laureli Shimayo will be the guest on Psychic Spectrum: sign up to hear her talk and get a sample reading and answers to your questions at: https://psychicspectrum.com/speakers-bureau Friday September 4, 7-8:30pm PT Online on Zoom, $10 Get tickets at: https://psychicspectrum.com/speakers-bureau Eyes Are the Window to Your Soul & Your Soulmates Map Your Soul with Intuitive Eye Readings The light that shines through our eyes reveals our life or soul purpose - our greatest strengths, deepest capacities and a big answer to why we are here. When we live our purpose, we contribute greatly to others plus experience more ease, joy and deep fulfillment. We all have lessons to navigate and grow through to express the best of who we are and can be. Laureli Shimayo reads a person’s soul with a set of archetypes called ThriveTypes® that describe our natural talents, rhythm, way of communicating, how we make decisions, and what motivates us plus how we learned to protect ourselves in the first two years of our life (defense) and our world view and other growth lessons. Laureli then uses these ThriveTypes to point towards and clarify a person’s purpose and answer questions about career path, life lessons, family members, kids, relationships, matchmaking, hiring, spiritual growth, and much more. Laureli will describe the ThriveTypes along with some of their lessons with tips for how she reads them in people’s eyes, and then she’ll answer questions from the audience. If she can see you on video, she will respond based on what she sees in your eyes, and you’ll also be able to show or submit photos so she can speak about others in your life as well. Laureli Shimayo is a people scientist and an intuitive artist. She has certifications and training in biology, somatic psychotherapy, personality archetypes, body intelligence, intuition, relationship coaching, and leadership coaching. While Laureli is spacious and spiritual, she is also strategic and practical. She applies her work to identifying life purpose and career paths, writing resumes and hiring great employees, romantic matchmaking and conscious online dating. She also runs large metaphysical & wellness fairs that are attended by extremely fulfilled people. Laureli is a co-author of the book The Sweet Spot: Leveraging Your Talents in Leadership & Life and author of Eyes Are the Window to Your Soulmate, a Conscious Online Dating Guide.
