What we're about

It can be hard to make meaningful connections even though we may be making many connections in our day to day lives. Some people are single and some are not, but many are looking for deep friendships and meaningful relationships. Are you looking for a better way to meet and make meaningful connections with like-minded people? Genuine Connection for the Modern Age offers a whole new way to meet people. Join us in creating events for people to have fun, make friends and get to know each other in a natural, comfortable way. Learn more about yourself and others. We are all about connecting with each other in a way that feels real and meaningful.

This Meetup invites you to connect with our larger Human Awareness Institute (HAI) community seeking deeper connection; a community that doesn't disappear if your life changes, if your relationship status changes, if you are single again or if you find a new partner. Our events include workshops where we help each other to learn communication skills to improve our relationships in every area of life. We have workshops with the themes of love, intimacy and sexuality, as well as potluck parties, group outings, hikes, concerts, etc. We welcome and encourage people of all backgrounds. Come join us!

Our workshops and social events offer people the opportunity to make profound change - away from isolation and separation, towards connection and community. HAI welcomes adults of all ages, relationship statuses, ethno-cultural backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses, physical abilities, gender identities and sexual orientations.

We post all events here, and we also share our events on HAI Ontario on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HAIOntario) as well as our other group, HAI Ontario Meetup (https://www.meetup.com/HAIOntario/).

Mission Statement:

The Human Awareness Institute (HAI) empowers individuals to be potent, loving, contributing human beings. HAI promotes personal growth and social change by replacing ignorance, shame and fear with awareness, acceptance and love.

HAI fosters the celebration of consensual, nourishing sexuality. The Human Awareness Institute is committed to creating a world of love and acceptance.
