March Authentic Relating Games

Dear Community,

It’s hard to believe it, but Authentic Oakland turns 6 months old in March! When I returned from London last summer, I was eager to start an authentic relating community in the Bay Area. After a successful test event with my friends, the first Authentic Oakland event was on September 22, 2020. Each event since then has been truly amazing and the attendees have been so wonderful every time. Thank you to all of the regular attendees who keep coming back and my lovely co-facilitators, Aïcha Doucouré and Ryan Brown.

This will be our last free event before we begin charging a minimal fee next month. It’s also at a special time on Saturday morning for those who find it challenging to attend on weeknights. Please join us as we once again lean into our edge in order to connect more deeply with ourselves and each other. I hope to see you there.


Our next Authentic Relating Games event will happen on Saturday, March 27, 2021, 10:00am - 12:00pm PT. This event is free and limited to 16 people so you're encouraged to sign up early.

What are Authentic Relating Games? Authentic Relating Games are a place to practice different ways of being human with others. AR Games interrupt our habitual ways of being, and offer opportunities to stretch ourselves emotionally, mentally, and relationally.

What are the games like? Some of them are played one on one, some in small groups, some with the whole group. They can be fun and playful, or serious and edgy.

Please note: Authentic Oakland events will be online only during the covid-19 pandemic. Each participant should join from their own computer in a quiet space.

With love,

Joshua
