Authentic Relating Games Night

Authentic Relating Games Night
Sat 08 Feb: 6.30-9.30pm with free social space afterwards until 10pm

Authentic Relating Games are all about:
* connecting us to ourselves (somatics)
* teaching how to engage more honestly, deeply and effortlessly with others
* having a lot of fun
* supporting the conscious community in Melbourne

Around the world a large number of 'authentic communities' explore
Relationship Building, Conflict Resolution, Self-Development (Circling and other modalities), & Community-Creation. They have been growing since the 1990s and have become a world movement, though a bit slower to catch on in Australia.

One of the most popular events in these movements across Canada, the USA and Europe are the authentic relating games nights. These are a fantastic and accessible doorway to deeper relating with self and other. (Whether you are a dedicated conscious relator, or just someone interested in cultivating deeper connections who's had a busy week and is keen to connect and have fun in more socially satisfying ways.)

---------------------------------

This event starts with simple, fun and creative movement and connection exercises, then moves into the authentic relating games themselves. None are complex, and nobody is expected to reveal anything about themselves that they don't want to.

These are safe and respectful spaces that focus on mutual support and shared presence. Though the excercises can be profoundly therapeutic this event is NOT therapy. All the games are specifically designed to help us open up, be real, and engage more deeply. Pretty much this is just a beautiful connected event of community.

However, exercises may just as often be moving (or possibly even awaken old emotions) as much as they cause laughter, open hearts, and awaken embodied energy. If someone is not comfortable with feelings and emotions arising, has strong unresolved trauma around relating, or major psychological challenges, this event may not be suitable for them. (If in any doubt contact us via email address below.)

---------------------------------

Arven Alexander is a Melbourne workshop designer and facilitator who has been a dedicated pioneer of groundbreaking modalities since 2006 (back in the wilderness before this city was the wild hotbed for self-development it now is). He first studied with the authentic communities online back in 2008 and has been incorporating this work into his events ever since. His main related background is in menswork, transpersonal psychology and contemporary & shamanic tantra.

Jessica Danserau is a trainee facilitator with the Montreal Authentic scene, having been very involved there for the last couple of years. We are delighted to have her join us as co-facilitator for these events.
