Description

CONNECTION GAMES ARE...

• Self-leadership and leadership training
• A fun way to connect with like-minded others
• A chance to explore your interpersonal edges and grow
• Interpersonal meditation: a collective spiritual practice

Our only agreements, and the values we strive for:
1. Practice Self-Leadership
2. Return To Connection
3. Consider Group Health

LOGISTICS

You must be 21 or over to attend all Connection Games events.

Doors open 15 minutes prior to the event. Hearty, nutritious snacks will be available at that time. In order to support a sacred container, doors will close by 10 minutes after the start time and will not reopen for late participants. There will be a dinner break incorporated into the schedule of the day.

If less than 4 tickets are purchased by 48 hours prior to the event, we may cancel the event. If you purchase tickets prior to that deadline and we cancel the event, we will contact you with the option to either transfer your ticket to another event or receive a refund.

There are no refunds in any other circumstance.

WHY DAYLONGS?

For about half of our existence, we only played Connection Games with our immediate friends. Then we moved on to structured, closed weekly containers — where the magic truly happens.

Now that those groups have their own energy, we want to open up the gift of Connection Games to a wider audience who may not be ready to commit to a weekly group.

Daylongs offer participants the opportunity to experience more self-awareness and deeper levels of connection than in a 3-hour evening event. We cap the groups at 8 people including facilitators, which encourages the kind of intimacy and magic found in a weekly group.

HOW IT FEELS

My Council group drops into a reverent silence. I listen to what my heart wants to speak. Do I want the talking stick? What DO I have to say that would honor this exquisite listening?

Later on, it's Wild Card. Our group has blindiy said "Hell Yes" to playing full out. We click the button to get a random activity, and some people gasp! What happens from then on, including the activity, stays in the room. But we support and challenge each other. When we walk out, we feel engaged and connected.
Connection Games are not always playful. We seek deep connection, which sometimes gets initiated in conflict and sharing withholds and heartaches. It's often messy, but safely held and always worth it.


WHAT HAPPENS

This event is dynamically steered. Unlike other similar events like circling, T-Group, authentic relating, the facilitator doesn't know the program ahead of time.

This means that YOU have a choice to impact the agenda!

We tend to start with the basics (Council, T-Group) and go from there. Sometimes people are chomping at the bit to take more risks, and we do. Other times the mood is sweet and connected, and we do more basic, safe, connecting practices. Sometimes a random idea arises out of attunement with the group (sometimes suggested by a participant) and we do that.

Take turns, three guidelines
Speak and listen from the heart.

Revealed to those edgy souls
Who choose it blindly
