    *** You must buy a ticket here to attend: http://juliewolkcoaching.com/services/networking-in-nature/ *** ** This will be the final Networking in Nature of 2018. ** A connective hike in the Oakland Hills for nature-loving coaches, consultants, holistic practitioners, and other service-based business owners... Let’s get to know each other and get our butts outside in nature! Do the words “networking event” make you want to cringe? Are you ready to get out from behind your computer and meet some other conscious entrepreneurs? Then join us... The intention of this event is to simply slow down, take in the beautiful Oakland hills, connect with other nature-loving entrepreneurs, and see how we might support each other in our businesses. So if you’re drowning in email, stretched too thin, over-giving, or simply caught on that hamster wheel of obsessive productivity, I hope you’ll come hang out with us. You could find your next: • Referral partner • Collaborator • Mastermind buddy • Client • Or just some down-to-earth friends on the entrepreneurial path Because here’s the thing... when you slow down and get connected with yourself, with nature, and with other humans (away from the screen!), you get replenished, realigned, and reactivated. Yep, slowing down and getting out in nature will actually make you more productive. (Not to mention all the other scientifically proven benefits of getting outside, including mental acuity, emotional resilience and stress relief). Here’s How it Works: • We'll meet at the trailhead, introduce ourselves, and then spend the first 20 minutes on a guided silent stroll on a beautiful trail. • Once we’ve opened up our senses and slowed down to nature’s pace, we’ll continue down a wide, rolling trail and have open time to walk, talk, and connect with one another about our businesses. • We’ll stop every so often for simple facilitated exercises and conversation prompts so that it’s easy and natural to get to know new people and practice your networking skills even if you usually don’t like networking events. So join us to connect to yourself, nature, and others in a naturally supportive, low-pressure environment. Details: • You must RSVP here and pay on Eventbrite so we know you're coming (space is limited and payment is only taken online) • Specific meeting spot details will be given when you register • Please be at the trailhead at 10AM sharp (give yourself a few extra minutes to get there, it may be farther than you think!) • The hike is easy to moderate with a couple uphill spots (it’s not intense) • Dress in layers, and bring a water bottle, as well as a snack if you’ll need it, and business cards if you like (but don't worry if you don't have cards!). • We're so sorry, but tickets are not refundable nor transferable to the next event. You are free to give away or sell your ticket (please just let us know who’s taking it!) • Your fee contributes to, among other things, permits and insurance for these hikes If you want to make sure to hear about all Networking in Nature events, please join the NiN Meetup Group: https://www.meetup.com/Networking-in-Nature-Bay-Area/ Questions? Email [masked]. Business Guided by Nature (http://www.juliewolkcoaching.com/) What Previous Nature-Networkers Had to Say: “Networking in Nature accomplishes so much more than "networking" and being in "nature". Each time I leave with about 20 new friends who do amazing work in the world. Julie facilitates meaningful conversation within small groups to allow connection without the awkwardness that accompanies so many networking events. After a few hours on the trail, I also feel relaxed and energized.” -Stephanie Hibbert, Small Business Action Network

  • Spring into Connection: An Equinox Connection Jam

    *** PRICE: $15 for one person or $20 for two people. After RSVPing here, go to https://springintoconnection.eventbrite.com to get your tickets. *** Our world faces rampant disconnection. We spend too much time staring at screens, and the news tends to either have us running for cover, or we may find ourselves triggered and argumentative, even if we care about them or have very similar beliefs. Whether you want romantic or business connections - or simply better friendships - connection is an art. And it's accessible to all of us. For the spring Equinox, we can intentionally choose to spring into connection. In this very participatory, safe and fun experience, you will: • Honor our connection with the earth • Learn how to not lose yourself in connection (whether in a relationship or with a large group of people) • Move your body, and connect authentically with others through dialogue (note: this is not a space for sexualized touch, and it's also not contact improv) • Get tangible ways to deepen any connection in your life (be it with your partner, friends, family or work) WHAT'S A CONNECTION JAM? Connection Jams are guided processes, not just "anything goes." In a safe and fun space, participants learn skills to connect both with themselves more deeply and then with others. It contains embodied practices and movement, easy dialogue, and relating authentically. You will learn a holistic framework for connection that you can bring to both your relationships and to your daily life. WHO IT'S FOR: • Both singles and couples (both established and those who are dating) • People who are interested in personal and spritual growth - and who value authenticity • All who enjoy movement, depth, and PLAY Expect a caring, safe space… to move… and to have fun... and to make great new connections who see you for who you are. You'll walk away feeling safe, energized, and renewed... and perhaps surprised at how easy connection can be, even if you've never met the other people there before. WEAR AND BRING: Dress for movement (dance, yoga, etc.), and bring a water bottle, as well as any snacks you'll personally need. ABOUT THE FACILITATOR: Jonathan Bender, MS, MFA, the creator of Connection Jams, has been leading workshops and coaching for over 20 years. He has coached and taught workshops to thousands, focusing on self-expression, public speaking, personal growth and "the performance of your life." The founder of WholeSpeak, LLC, he spends his time teaching how to show up in life and on stage with authenticity, power, and dynamic presence, and has a mission to help our world heal the wounds of disconnection. Jonathan is also a professional theatre director, actor and writer, and holds an MFA in Theater: Contemporary Performance and a Master's in Performance Studies and Speech Communication.

    $15.00

    *** PRICE: $15 for one person or $20 for two people. After RSVPing here, go to https://theheartofconnection.eventbrite.com (https://theheartofconnection.eventbrite.com/) to get your tickets. *** For most people, Valentine’s Day falls short of true romance and deep connection: singles feel out of place as if there’s something wrong with them, and couples may find themselves striving for a Hollywood fantasy that impossible in real life. What you might really be desiring, regardless of your situation, is deeper connection with others. This could be a romantic connection, or with family, friends and your community. To deeply connect with others – without losing yourself – is an art form and a path of growth. No matter how your Valentine’s Day was, come experience deep connection - and get great skills that you’ll keep using. The workshop gets to the heart of connection – by exploring the Art of Connection. In this very participatory, safe and fun experience, you will: • Learn how to not lose yourself in connection (whether in a relationship or with a large group of people) • Move your body, and connect authentically with others through dialogue (note: this is not a space for sexualized touch, and it's also not contact improv) • Get tangible ways to deepen any connection in your life (be it with your partner, friends, family or work) WHAT'S A CONNECTION JAM?

  • Authentic Connection: How to Connect Authentically in Your Work and Life

    This event is free with advance RSVP here, or $15 at the door with no RSVP. Please RSVP to reserve your free spot. Whether you have your own business or practice, or work for someone else, you’ve surely been exposed to marketing practices that feel fake and cheesy. Maybe you struggle with showing up real in your work, with questions like: • How do I bring in clients while still being authentic? • Can I share who I really am, both in my work and in my personal life? • How do we stop saying things like, "I'm fine" and actually express ourselves, while not alienating others? Whether it’s a new client or a relationship, you want these relationships to be authentic, rather than merely transactional. Often we’re dissatisfied, feeling limited by the roles and expectations we’ve learned to follow. We’ve shaped ourselves based on how we think others want us to be—what it means to be a good entrepreneur, co-worker, boss, or salesperson. Not only that, we’ve also put others in labeled boxes, expecting them to measure up to our expectations. Here’s the good news: within every relationship is the possibility for more genuine connection and more creative collaboration. One way is through the principles and practices of Authentic Relating. Join Michael and Matthew Porcelli of the Integral Institute for an informative and experiential evening of Authentic Relating Games. These fun exercises are designed to help you get more comfortable being yourself, and relate to others - whether in your work or your personal life - with greater ease and authenticity. Some more of what you’ll learn: • The natural stages of progression possible in any relationship, personal or professional • How to spot opportunities to make any relationship more genuine, collaborative, and fulfilling • Recognize common pitfalls along the way You’ll leave with a greater awareness of your relational patterns, and new tools to create more of the connection you want. About the Facilitators: Michael Porcelli is committed to people cultivating more realness in their relationships both personal and professional. He’s played a key role developing a world-class team of facilitators and Course Leaders with The Integral Center and AuthenticWorld. Whether it’s taking people into deep interpersonal encounters in the moment, crafting a training curriculum, or facilitating a fast-paced business meeting, you’ll find him friendly, down-to-earth, and probably ready geek-out at the drop of a hat. Matthew Porcelli is an Integrity and Accountability coach and the current head of the Authentic San Francisco community, organizing regular Authentic Relating events here in the Bay Area. He also serves on faculty at The Integral Center, bringing world-class trainings in human connection and relational intelligence to San Francisco. He believes that life is beautiful and that the power to see and experience that beauty lies within each individual. He creates a sense of ‘family’ wherever he goes.
