MASKS & MIRRORS (& MEISNER): Authentic Relating Adventures
[East Brunswick, Melbourne]
Saturday 10 Feb 1.30pm-6.30pm

www.facebook.com/events/148453505749107

A fascinating exploration of 'Authentic Relating' practices for those seeking more depth and empowerment in their connections with themselves & others.

These simple but effective practices to engage & express more authentically are drawn from several remarkable sources, including the amazing Meisner Technique.

Discover more about yourself and how you relate to others.
Expanding your repertoire of presence and connection.
In a fun, interesting and non-pressured environment.
This is fascinating self-development, presence-building, and 'relationship skills' training.

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

Breaking out of our socialised 'Masks' through the 'Mirrors' of intentional engagement with others.
Reclaiming all the satisfyingly deep human aspects of connection that are impossible to do through social media.

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

Socialisation isn't a dirty word. We need to learn various themes of behavior to function in society. Whether that society is rigid and repressed, or expanded and empowered. Socialisation itself isn't necessarily a problem.

However, when you are raised in a culture that incorporates projection, repression, and terror of intimacy and authenticity, that's what is learned. At a deep core level. We construct patterns of self that appear to be real, but at best are masks that reflect some of what we are at core.

In the worlds of personal development, the ego, and asociated patterns of inauthentic behavior, can be rife (even amongst powerful practitioners, facilitators and trainees). It's a huge elephant-in-the-room that needs to be addressed. And why not do that from the ground up by empowering yourself in this field!!??

EVENT OVERVIEW

* Does the idea of 'conscious relating' ever seem like a glorious or unfathomable mystery? Or some kind of vaguely 'hippy' or 'nicey nicey' wishy washy rubbish?
* Ever wish you could 'get' people better, or be seen more fully for who you actually are?
* Want to dump, or cut through, some of those social masks?
* Experienced and want to practice, or new to all of this? (It's suitable for anyone up for the challenge. Beginners too.)

This event is a fun and potent way to get to know more of your presence, passion and depth; and learn fuller, more satisfying, skills in connecting and relating.

Not by trying to be 'BIG', but by exploring our richness and subtlety that is so often overlooked and undervalued. (Yet is really where it's all about when it comes to being 'present' and 'real' in the world and in powerful relating.)

No experiences involve performance or dialogue. All are about communicating/feeling your truth in the moment, and are Authentic Relating practices from numerous fields, including:

* Meisner Technique Actors' Training (one of the most raw and real paths of conscious self-expression and emotional fluency in existence!)
* Gestalt-based Transformational Therapy (Circling)
* Shamanic- & Neo-Tantra (authentic expression, personal presence, and boundaries/consent practices)

This event closes around 6.10pm to leave 20mins or so of social time to just connect and hang-out over chai and snacks.

------------------------------------------
** Tantra & Authentic Relating **

Many (sadly not the majority) of Tantra organisations explore Authentic Relating as foundational to becoming a powerful Tantra practitioner. If you want to expand your relational mastery or to become someone who is more confident in intimacy and sexuality, Authentic Relating is a *primary* pathways that can take you there. (This event is not specifically a 'Tantra' workshop, but has some significant overlaps as it covers one of the often-overlooked essential cornerstones of Tantra.)

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

NON-PRESSURED, NO-EXPERIENCE REQUIRED:

This is a facilitated self-development environment. None of the exercises tonight are about confrontation, or being ‘forced’ to say or do anything that exposes, embarrasses or goes beyond any personal boundaries. Nor are they about knowing exactly what to say or do.

Rather, they are all about being real and humanly imperfect in the moment, offering what you see, feel and perceive without judgment or expectation. (And about learning to receive the same way.)
