Imagine creating Authentic Community for a day... equipped with tools & skills to inspire rich, rewarding connection wherever you go...

8:45am, at the coffee shop...

Ordering your morning latte, you create a brief but impactful moment of real connection with the barista...

* You feel the satisfaction of contribution, and your connection with the barista will be richer in every future interaction...

* The barista lights up with a much-needed dose of human-to-human connection that shifts the way they relate to their customers for the rest of the day.

10:41am, A meeting at work...

You artfully addressed an interpersonal challenge between your boss and a client that quickly resolved what would have been a long, drawn-out, painful meeting.

* You felt the satisfaction of taking the lead in creating a work culture of direct communication and effective meetings...

* Your boss, client and coworkers breathe a sigh of relief at finally having someone able to identify and name the issue they'd all been FEELING, but didn't have the tools to address (and as a result, their life doesn't look like an episode of The Office!).

7:40pm, at a restaurant celebrating your Dad's 75th birthday party, you facilitate an "acknowledgement circle"...where each person shares the impact your dad has had on their lives...

* Your heart swells to give your Dad an experience he will remember for the rest of his life...

* Your Dad is in tears of gratitude (you've rarely seen your Dad this moved before), and shares with everyone, "Thank you. this is all I've ever really been wanting on my birthday...from now on I want all of you to get this gift when it's your turn to be under the gun!"

9:23pm, at a social gathering, you walk into a room filled with friends. You're known as a community leader, loved and celebrated for the unique gifts you bring, as well as your quirky insecurities and wierdnesses!

* You feel your body relax, all tensions and anxieties melt. As you look around the room you feel love towards every person there, and feel excited to dive in and connect with each of them...

* Others see you and feel a blast of love, excitement...and perhaps a tinge of apprehension. They know you bring a "zing" of realness to your interactions, that can be both rewarding...and scary at times. They often find themselves hoping you join their conversation...

10:42pm, you see a person you're attracted to... they're new to the group... you go over to introduce yourself and to make them feel at home...

You feel a distinct buzz in your body as a circuit of attraction and connection flows between you...laughing and connecting... Throughout the rest of the night, smiles and eye contact hold the promise of more...

1:22am You're having so much fun, laughing, connecting, and loving the people you're with...that you don't want to leave...until you feel a flood of gratitude as you remember that this is your life every day, and this kind of connection is always available...

This is a taste of what it's like to be a leader in Authentic Community.

This is exactly what this party will equip you with!

We will play various fun connections games such as the noticing game. Roe Moore, Chris Lake and others who played this game on this group's very first Meetup really enjoyed it! And so, I decided to have a Meetup exclusively to play these types of games! The beauty of this game is that people connect deeply with each other quickly in a very fun way! This is because they are not merely exchanging information but rather talking about what's happening in the present moment!
