What we're about

An alternative to singles events as usual, this is not a dating site. We are the single and available folks of HAI (the Human Awareness Institute) Ontario!

There are a lot of single people out there, and lots of singles events. So why does it sometimes seem so hard to meet the people you really want to connect with? Are you looking for a better way to meet and make meaningful connections with like-minded people? Singles Seeking Genuine Connection 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.

Our Meetup of singles invites you to connect with our larger HAI community seeking deeper connection; a community that doesn't disappear if you find or have a 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/).

Connecting in Love (HAI Level 1 Workshop)

Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre

Are you looking to create more love and intimacy in your life? Are you ready to challenge yourself in a loving way and enhance your personal growth and development? Join us for this amazing weekend workshop! This profound HAI workshop will be taking place near Midland, Ontario. From Friday evening to Sunday evening we create a room of love, an extended family of safety and caring in which we can each soar and explore. The tools and skills offered will benefit anyone who is on a path of personal growth. Regardless of your history, relationship status, or sexual orientation, the Workshops can give you tools for long lasting happiness. We will have the opportunity to: ♥ Develop greater confidence, self-esteem, and inner peace ♥ Learn more loving, gentle, and open communication skills ♥ Be more comfortable and accepting of your body and your sexuality ♥ Learn to fall more deeply in love with yourself and others ♥ Discover how to fully and authentically share who you really are with others ♥ Risk beyond your limitations ♥ Heal past hurtful relationships ♥ Have more fun in your life! Love, intimacy and sexuality are fundamental to being human. What we often don't realize is that our very notions of these may prevent us from fully expressing and receiving love. In Level 1, you are supported in discovering and shedding the fears, judgments, beliefs and behaviors that keep you separate from others. Explore new ways of relating and communicating that are deeply satisfying, safe and nourishing. Many people have said it is the most profound experience of love they have ever had. Join us for this positive, affirming and loving workshop.
