Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for Conscious Connections! As of this week (July 12, 2021) we are suspending the use of this group in order to streamline our communication and increase access to our events. This is especially important as we look ahead to hosting some in person events, in addition to our online offerings. This group will remain active for the time being however we will not be posting upcoming events on this page for the foreseeable future.
We hope to continue connecting with you on any of the groups below! These groups will have the most up to date information on upcoming events.
We started Conscious Connections in July 2015, since then we have grown to become a warm, friendly community of kind-hearted people who welcome all and everyone to join us for some "Real Talk."
Every meeting starts with introductions, then we move into a round table discussion related to the "topic of choice" (different topic every week), followed by a hands-on exercise to integrate the ideas from the night and we wrap up our meetup with a closing circle.
The purpose of our meeting is to come together and collectively hold compassionate, loving space for each other. We do our best to suspend judgment and we recognize, if judgment does come up, it's simply a reflection of ourselves, if I'm having a judgment, it says more about me, then it does about the person I may be judging. This awareness helps me let go of judgment and replace it with compassion and acceptance for everyone in the room.
The intention of Conscious Connections is to create a safe and supportive environment, this encourages everyone to show up and be real. We do our best to check our egos at the door and we show up in complete authenticity. We support each other by finding the similarity in everyone's words, this is not a place for debate or criticism... this is a place for love and acceptance. The safe space we create gives everyone an opportunity to be seen, heard, and understood for who they truly are.
We hold compassionate space for one another by focusing on the positive qualities of everyone. When we listen to each other, we look for the best in each person, we see that person in a loving space of kindness, support, and acceptance for who they are. When we see others in this positive light, it helps them to recognize their own beauty and uniqueness.
We accept each other, flaws and all... we realize no one is perfect, and we get that we're all here on this planet, trying to do the best we can. We can be so hard on each other and we can be really hard on ourselves. Conscious Connections provide the space for us to start being gentle with one another... including ourselves. It's an interesting phenomenon; when you're immersed in a loving space with people who only see the best in you, it allows you to start seeing the best in yourself.
We choose to lift each other up, rather than tear each other down. By encouraging, supporting, and focusing on the positive attributes of everyone in the room, we always walk away with new insights, connections, and lots of Love.
Hope you'll join us!
