Since space indoors is limited, please update and cancel your spot if you cannot attend. That opens it up for another player.
Note also: The Pittsfield Elementary School has implemented a new security policy that affects our entry to the facility. We can no longer prop the door open, and instead we will post a note on the front door, providing a cell phone number to call so we can let you in. Alternatively, just walk around the building to the wooden porch where the door to the gym is accessible, knock on the door and we will let you in.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but we understand the school's interest in securing the facility. We look forward to seeing you next week!

What is Authentic relating?
Please RSVP HERE:
Tired of small talk? When you are socializing, does it seem that people are talking -at- each other and not -with- each other?
Connection comes in many forms. Our gatherings are fun, deep, meaningful, consent based, sober and supportive.
To practice connecting with yourself and others by being truly seen, heard, understood, and to be more present for connection, come explore in our facilitated and welcoming environment.
Whether you are looking for new ways to connect with yourself and others, or practice the skills you already have, platonically, romantically, or the spectrum in between, this will be a supportive, consensual and intentional space to do so.
We will play and practice various connection and communication games and use methods via authentic relating, Mindfulness, Playfulness, being intentional with our words and actions, NVC (non violent communication), movement practices and other techniques. We will use large group, small group and one on one format (may vary for different events)
You are always at choice and can choose what you want to participate in or not. We welcome people to be true to themselves, change their minds when they need to, and respect the word no, as much as the word yes, and the variations of overlap in between. Receiving a no, is not considered rejection, or anti-social at our events. Choosing to say no, or not participate, or partially participate is considered a person honoring their own needs. When we can trust a person to say no, we can trust when they say yes, even more.
☀️Connections can be Platonic, Romantic or the nuanced variations in between. Whether you are single/solo, polyamorous, monogamous or RA, all relationship styles, genders, LGBTQ+, non gender conforming folx, Hetero people, Neuro typical, Neuro diverse (and all other expressions and identities) are welcome. You can come solo, partnered, with family or with friends. We’re all in this together.
Led by licensed Therapist, Charity Loring, LMSW of Loring Therapy LLC.
