Authentic Relating games
Come and connect with others in a fun, safe, playful environment
What is this!? What are Authentic Relating Games?
Authenticity is acting and speaking in alignment with our inner feelings, desires, and needs—our truth. Authentic Relating (AR) is the practice of bringing our truth into connection with others’, so that we can weave a more rich human experience.
Authentic Relating Games are an easy and fun way to introduce AR into daily life. They can help us experience deeper connections, boost empathy, see the world through others’ eyes, and understand ourselves better so that we can enjoy life more. The games are fun, highly interactive partner and group exercises that demonstrate and explore AR, and getting to know yourself better while at the same time learning to see and appreciate more about everyone you connect with. These games are NOT board games like ‘Chutes & Ladders’ or ‘Checkers’ (they’re better ).
Authentic also means that there is no cookie-cutter mold for how you “should” be or what relating “should look like”. Everyone is a complete universe unto themselves, has a unique style, personality, and integrity that is perfectly them, and everyone is perfect and amazing as they are (including in their belief that they aren’t.)
The games provide a variety of experiences from movement, dance, communication, talk, listening…
