What we're about

This group is intended to take the stress out of "socializing" for singles as well as couples, but still give you lots of easy going opportunities to connect and socialize. We like to get together, have fun, and yes, dance and party. The whole premise of this group is to facilitate gatherings for singles where you don't feel the pressure to "be single". And yet.... you can still enjoy knowing everyone else is too! ;) Just hang out, be casual, enjoy yourself and have a good time along the way. It's the perfect group to network, meet new friends, or perhaps even that someone special. And of course, to have fun too. which is what it's all about.

Meetups for this group may be anything from Free Saturday at the Museum, Intellectual Discussion groups, bowling, yoga and meditation classes, karaoke...who knows? But also plan on some good old fashioned Happy Hours sprinkled in liberally. The common theme will be safe, enjoyable, easygoing, stress free, and fun events. And unless otherwise specified, dress is always casual. That's because we think comfortable clothes make for comfortable people. So show up, hang out with some great people, and don't feel any pressure to be "on".

In our Group, you will find … a fun mix of nice people who like to join in sharing good conversations, laughter and activities that enhance a friendly, supportive and social atmosphere. The intent is to create fun, safe and social space in various environments where we share activities, meet and have a good time. Many members are natives of Colorado, New to Colorado or are People that find themselves in new life situations. Join us should you want to get out of the house to socialize, have fun, do something good, try something new and develop new friendships!

Let go of any fear you may have about venturing out and attending an event for the first time (many members have been through this already and they will certainly understand how you feel) you will find that the members of the group are a nice mix of people of various backgrounds and ages who just want to live life and enjoy exploring new adventures, meet new people and share good times at great places and events.

Now...let's have some fun!

Workshop: Radical Listening

Christ the Servant Lutheran

$35.00

You may have heard of Radical Honesty, but what about Radical Listening? What if the way you listened to yourself and others could open up new worlds? What if it could bring you to a deeper understanding of both the universality of the human condition, and the uniqueness of how life expresses itself through you and others? In this dynamic workshop, we’ll practice interactive conversations and activities to: * Increase our compassion for ourselves and others * explore our universal, precious human needs / values * receive empathy about something that matters to us * identify habitual ways of listening that block connection * enhance our practice of empathetic listening, discovering what really matters to ourselves and another human being Listening through empathy empowers people by helping us to know what matters; this opens the door to wider possibilities to meet our needs. We'll contrast ways of listening that divide and shrink our world with ways that expand the possibilities. We’ll practice deep listening into that expansive space. This work draws from Compassionate Empowered Communication, based on Nonviolent Communication © Dr. Beth Eldridge is passionate about helping people live more emotionally intelligent, empowered, soulful lives, with compassionate communication skills that expand their consciousness and redefine the wonderful gifts of what is possible in relationships. She facilitates workshops and mindful hikes, and offers life coaching. Beth has been practicing Compassionate Empowered Communication and mindfulness since 2005. She also has a Ph.D. in Education, and practices 5 Rhythms dance. She uses this knowledge to help people learn in experiential, embodied ways. Volunteers Needed! Message Beth to help out for reduced price or free admission.

A snapshot of key concepts for this workshop: Self - empathy is a way of connecting with our life energy in order to understand and be present with it, in a compassionate, open way. We get in touch with our feelings and needs to guide us into presence and appropriate action. This gentle attention often opens the door for healing and movement of the energy, sometimes mourning, or deep celebration and gratitude. Empathy with others is the process of listening deeply, connecting with someone, and sometimes asking questions with a gentle, open presence, to invite them deeper into their understanding of themselves, or others. In empathy we keep the focus on the speaker, following where they lead. This process often leads to relief of difficult emotions, less tension in the body, companionship through challenges, and greater clarity about how to proceed.
