What we're about

We have a wide network of online gatherings, please see our website for further events:

https://lowentropy.org/conscious-connections/

We welcome 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 judgement and we recognize, if judgement does come up, it's simply a reflection of ourselves, if I'm having a judgement, it says more about me, then it does about the person I may be judging. This awareness helps me let go of judgement 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 ego's 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 the 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 provides the space for us to start being gentle with one another... including ourselves. It's an interesting phenomena; 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!

Creepiness

Link visible for attendees

Creepiness, what is it? After all, it is a fundamental part of human interaction that we would like to avoid. We even make entire concepts and ideas basing around it, like the Uncanny Valley. And where do we draw the line between which actions are creepy and which actions are tolerable? Is it subjective, objective or are there more complicated factors in play? Do we have an inborn sensor for what is creepy, what is not, or is it a cultural conditioning? Perhaps the answer lies in between? All of these and more will be featured in this session, where we try to untangle and understand just what creepiness truly is.

In this session, we will create an open and friendly space where we can deepen our understanding of ourselves and the surrounding world, as well as to connect with others. We will leave our ego and judgement at the door. And while it is not obligatory to share, we certainly recommend doing so as connections can only be built when one opens one’s heart to another. This is an open, inclusive, and confidential space where our differences bring us together.

Through emotional intelligence, mindfulness, building trust, and undivided attention, this space will allow for participants to explore within and authenticity to flourish.

In this session:
We will listen actively, resist the urge to interrupt, judge, and give advice.
We will be honest with ourselves and open to new perspectives.
We will be kind to ourselves and be mindful of the space that we take up.
We will be respectful and understanding of ourselves and others.
We will commit to the confidential and inclusive nature of this environment.

With love and respect,

Procrastination

Link visible for attendees

Procrastination is the act of putting off or delaying tasks until the last minute. Most if not all of us, engage in procrastination from time to time when we are faced with a time-sensitive task.

Some individuals consider the lack of willpower or determination as the leading cause of procrastination. Others consider procrastination as a way of de-stressing and relaxing when confronted with a challenging task or decision.

Come and join us for an open-minded discussion on the topic of procrastination. We will discuss questions such as: “why do you procrastinate?”, “when is it good to procrastinate?”, “what kinds of things do you put off doing?”, “ Are there any positive aspects to procrastination”, “ How do you usually procrastinate?”, “How do you overcome procrastination?”.

In this online session, we will create safe sharing spaces to explore and deepen our understanding of ourselves and build relationships with others. This is an open, inclusive and confidential space where our differences bring us together.

Through emotional intelligence, mindfulness, building trust and undivided attention, this space will allow for participants to explore within and authenticity to flourish.

Believe in Yourself

Link visible for attendees

Has it ever happened to you that due to a lack of trust in your own capabilities, you end up not even trying what you wanted to do?
Many times people around us say "You can do it, you've got this!", but do we really think we can?

No matter how often you hear nice things about you, It will never help you if you don't believe it first.

In this open talk, we will explore what prevents us from believing in ourselves. What gets in the way? Is it us? How can we Improve our confidence?

Let us talk about these and other topics, openly, freely and respectfully. Together we can explore, share, and learn.
