What we're about

"Power To The People!"- John Lennon.

Welcome to the grass roots, people-powered, community calendar of events for the energy healing and consciousness community in Seattle and Tacoma!

There are several important differences between this and most other Meetups. The most important difference is that ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS CAN CREATE AND ANNOUNCE MEETUP EVENTS - completely without organizer approval. That's right. You heard me right. EVERY SINGLE COMMUNITY MEMBER can post ANY EVENT you like on the new Community Calendar - any time you want - without any organizer approval whatsoever - And you can even announce it yourself immediately the entire community without approval as well.

Here is - step by step - how to create a grass roots Meetup event the Community Calendar:

1. Join the Community.

2. The Organizer will make you an Event Organizer.

3. Go to the 'Let's Meetup and...' prompt to suggest and add Meetups on the Meetup Group's home page

4. Members may add Meetups by filling out the 'Let's Meetup and...' form

5. Meetups added by members are turned into official Meetups immediately.

6. Member-added Meetups with a date selected will appear on the Calendar

7. Member-added Meetups without a date selected will appear only on the 'Upcoming' Meetups list on the Meetup Group's home page

8. The member who adds the Meetup may choose to announce the Meetup to the Meetup Group's members immediately and completely without organizer approval.

Finally, the community mailing list is completely unmoderated so that ALL community members can reach the entire community!

These are powerful community building tools. Please use them responsibly.

This is our community. Let's nurture and care for it.

Authentic Relating: Circling with Authentic Seattle

9414 Roosevelt Way NE

Join Laureli Shimayo for one longer Circle. ** WHAT IS AUTHENTIC RELATING? ** AR is about what is real and now. It's about what you are feeling and experiencing in your bodily felt sense. It's about your actual thoughts and emotions in the moment, whether they be scared, joyful, sad, etc. It's about the nature of connectedness when you look into the eyes of another being. Authentic Relating is a growing movement with communities around the globe gathering to connect and enrich our human experience. The two most common AR activities are Transformational Games & Circling. (https://www.authrev.com/worldwide-connection & http://www.circlinginstitute.com/circling/what-is-circling/) CIRCLING is a way for us to practice presence in relationship with others. It is a group experience that leaves space for individual emotional expression, reflection and sharing of impact - where we are encouraged to follow our impulses, speak our truths, and explore relating with one another authentically in the present moment. The practice of circling allows us to slow down, bring our attention to our own felt experience, and share our inner worlds with one another, noticing what happens within us and what arises within the group as we do so. The intention is to connect from a place of curiosity and to strive for clarity as we bring awareness to what is implicit and make it explicit. The goal is not to change one another, but instead to be with what is, celebrating and honoring who and where we all are right now. As we circle, we practice breaking through the assumptions and projections we may have about each other to allow for deeper connection and greater understanding to emerge. Event Details: - Monday March 11, 11am-1pm - Address: Seattle Tantra Community, 9414 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle WA 98115 - Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to settle into the space so we can begin at 11:05am. We lock the doors at about 11:15am. - We’ll go over agreements, introduce Circling and then do one longer Circle. - We are an inclusive community. Newcomers to Authentic Relating and mature teens are welcome. - Cost: Sliding scale $10-$30 to support our budding Authentic Seattle and Seattle Tantra communities. Cash, check or card accepted at the door. You are also welcome to pay ahead at www.PayPal.me/LaureliShimayo (mention that it is for Circling and which date). This event is on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/639568376482460/ ** WHAT/WHO IS AUTHENTIC SEATTLE? ** We are a community that is unleashing our aliveness through self-expression, connection, and bearing witness to each other. We gather frequently for Games, Circling and socializing. Additional Considerations: - Please note that Authentic Relating events are not a therapeutic setting, and the facilitators are not there in the role of counselors. If you have needs that would best be served by a mental health professional, do not consider this practice as a substitute for such care. - Games & Circling events can facilitate people making deep connections. Not everyone brings that connected experience with them after an event. Please remember to practice everyday politeness if you reach out to someone to connect socially after an event. - If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask any of the Authentic Seattle Organizers or a Facilitator.

Befriending The Characters Who Run Our Stories

Phinney Center Community Hall

In relationships, do you run scripts in your head that seem like they should work, but keep getting the same frustrating results? You probably even have go-to characters you pull out when, for example, you wish you felt more seen and appreciated, or you just want everybody to pitch in and do their chores, or you really, really know you’re right and they’re wrong, or you just need some space to hear yourself think! These characters wear masks that cover over our fears and our genuine wants. We wear them because they feel familiar and at some point in our lives they worked - they got us what we needed. We wouldn’t be here without them! In this class, we invite you to bring one of your characters out to play. We’ll interview and appreciate them for what they are here to tell you. Then we’ll use play to discover what new choices are available. What new stories are possible? How can we invent a whole new way of relating? We intend to create an open, collaborative space where we can each discover what we most need and want to discover about ourselves while having a really good time! This is the first class in a five part series where we will explore 5 Reviving Play Moves to Re-Invigorate Relating. You do not need to sign up for the whole series to take this free class. Find us in Room 3 at the Phinney Center. This class is for anyone who ever relates to anyone else - meaning you do not need to be a couple or in a romantic relationship to attend or get value from this class. Please sign up for this free class on EventBrite here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/befriending-the-characters-who-run-our-stories-tickets-56156858676 Learn more about the whole series and sign up before it fills: http://kristinaturner.com/index.php/come-play/ Kristina Turner is a wild-at-heart Hendricks Certified Coach inspired by the magical ways creative play inter-relates with thriving in community. No issue is taboo here when race, gender, sexuality, spirituality, age, class, ancestry, ability, innate genius and willingness to play are all seen as doorways into expressing our full aliveness and reclaiming our wholeness. Dhira Brown is an Agent of Play at Play It Out Improv and a Hendricks Certified Coach. Improv has been her go-to practice on stage and off for the past three years. Through this journey, she discovered how much easier it is to use her whole self to transform her experience through play, rather than struggling to "figure things out" with just her brain. Play It Out Improv's mission is to inspire and empower people to celebrate and improvise with what is, to instantly create what they really want. © Kristina Turner, Creative Resilience Coach, & Dhira Brown, Play It Out Improv in playful cahoots with The Hendricks Institute, www.hendricks.com
