Description

Authentic SF - Authentic Relating Games, Berkeley

Self-consciousness

What happens when you are seen by another?
Does your mind become a home for a scathing inner critic?
Are you the kind of person that postures or collapses in the face of self-consciousness?
Is it possible to free yourself from your habitual responses?

The talented Shana James will be guiding you through an evening exploring these inquiries and what comes up for you when you consider "self-consciousness"

________________________________


What are "Authentic Relating Games"?

Authentic Relating Games are a fun and unique way to experience deeper connections. They are....

- Profound and playful icebreakers
- A simple format to break old patterns of communication, so that we can see the subtext and motivations in our interactions
- A relational API that lets you understand and be understood by anyone.

During the night, we will guide you on a journey of interpersonal experience. Using safe, powerful, and interactive "Games", we'll explore a depth of connection that is rarely attained in a single night...while having full permission for our unique boundaries and experiences.

By the end of a game, even though you may have just met these people, you may feel like you've known them for a long time. Many people express entering a room full of strangers and leaving feeling like lifelong friends.

From meditative depths of presence and ecstatic heights of joy, to somber melancholy and heart-pounding fun, we will guide an experience all the way through the human condition.

________________________________

If you long for deeper connection...
If you crave authenticity in all your relationships...
If you know more is possible in every interaction...

...this evening is for you.

We will be exploring the powerful & vulnerable space of owning what we truly want & revealing our experience in the moment.

________________________________

Our intention is that you will:

- Meet new & interesting people!

- Get a taste of the power of this deeper kind of relating.

- Discover something about yourself and others.

- Learn some new tools you can bring into your current relationships.

- Have fun!

All are welcome. Bring a friend, bring your partner, or come solo! Even if you've known someone for years, these events are an excellent opportunity to connect in a new way.
