ConnectSpace™–Create Deeper Connections & Make New Friends

East Bay Healing Collective; Coming Home Room

$10.00

—What Are ConnectSpace Games?— ConnectSpace Games are a fun and unique way to experience deeper connections. This is a guided journey of interpersonal experience. We use safe, powerful, and interactive connection games to create a fun and honest vibe among participants. You can play and participate at any level you feel comfortable. After a games night, people often tell us they entered a room full of strangers and left feeling like lifelong friends. All while having full permission to express boundaries and share their experiences. —Who is This For? — This is for you if ... - You want to connect beyond the superficial and have more meaningful interactions - You want to meet and make new friends - You want to discover how you are truly experienced by others - You want to share your experience of others in a way that creates unforgettable connections. - You want to share yourself more authentically in conversation, both inside and outside of a structured format - You want to learn how to get real with the people you meet... giving you the kind of deep, connected experience we often hope for, but rarely experience. - You want to have FUN on a Tuesday night! —Who's Facilitating the Evening?— Morgan and Elizabeth are Master NLP practitioners and are committed to helping clients have more of what they want in their lives. They are also both connection junkies and love all things that facilitate the experience of bringing people together. The combination of understanding how to work with people’s beliefs to facilitate change coupled with their love of connection, the duo brings a loving, safe and nurturing environment that creates a container for deep connection. _________________________ DETAILS: Time 7:15-9:45PM 7:15PM doors open/social time 7:30PM Games start.

Saturday Night Sangha

East Bay Healing Collective; Coming Home Room

Saturday Night Sangha Originally established in Berkeley in 2008, the Saturday Night Sangha has grown to become a vibrant community that embraces diversity in age, ethnicity and spiritual background. We are a peer-led group of spiritual friends whose members come from a variety of different contemplative traditions. A typical gathering will be facilitated by one of our experienced practitioners. We begin with forty minutes of meditation, followed by a brief talk. We then leave a half-hour for open discussion in order to allow everyone an opportunity to share their views. Often, there evolves a deep resonance of presence in the room, as we listen deeply to one another, and share with open hearts. Once every three months, we hold one kirtan and one party. We meet from 6pm-7:30pm every Saturday night at the East Bay Healing Collective (1840 Alcatraz Avenue, Berkeley, CA), and often go out for dinner afterward. We are a donation-based group, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. You are warmly invited to attend. No need to RSVP. If you have any questions, email Travis.

Heart of Light Meditation

East Bay Healing Collective; Coming Home Room

Come join us for an evening of silent meditation in sacred community. Silent meditation gives one the space to unfold and relax into one's natural and undivided self. This practice is excellent for maintaining a life of well being while consciously continuing along a path of self care and discovery. In practicing together, we support each other in our individual processes as well as being with what is, exactly as it is in the present moment. This group is offered every Monday evening at 6:30 pm at the East Bay Healing Collective. This group is led in roughly a Dharma Talk style: after the meditation, the facilitator gives a talk that draws upon teachings from Buddhism as well as many other traditions from East and West. Open to everyone and well-suited for beginners and experienced meditators alike, a typical evening includes 40 minutes of meditation, a talk inspired by various spiritual teachings, and interactive time of Q & A / discussion. One only needs the openness to sit with oneself, the curiosity to be with what arises, and the courage to be honest about what is discovered. If you are new to meditation and would like some extra guidance or have questions, feel free to come a few minutes early and/or stay a few minutes late! Further your practice with us, or come dip a toe into a quiet reflective space and explore what is here for you. The sangha is offered to the community free of charge. At the end of the evening, participants have the opportunity to make a voluntary contribution only if they feel moved to do so. You can hear some of Mike's past dharma talks here (http://heartoflight.podbean.com/). If you'd like to share feedback about a previous session of this sangha, please share that here. (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdsn3DscWsoNQdI3JtIb1pSJiAePxVSfwSAwY2_hVyH9kk2LQ/viewform). Mike welcomes any feedback that anyone has to share.
