About the event

“If you think you’re enlightened, go and spend a week with your family” ~ Ram Das

It’s that time of year again when most of us are starting to make plans to go home and visit our families for Christmas. On one hand, you might be looking forward to mum or dad’s home-cooked Christmas dinner and giving and receiving presents.  On the other hand, you might be dreading the trigger potential of those old family patterns playing out, AGAIN!

Come and join us for a day of connection. We will be curiously exploring ourselves and our connection with others during this day of Authentic Relating Games.  The games will bring humour and depth and will help you learn more about yourself and how you relate to friends, family, romantic partners, work colleagues or even the person in the café who served you the wrong coffee.

Authentic Relating is about giving yourself permission to be you.  To be accepted in your full humanness while also being in connection with others.  It’s about welcoming their experience and their humanness and showing both you and them compassion.

During this day we will explore the different elements of Authentic Relating through relational games, we’ll create space to listen and be heard and we’ll experience some of the principles of this practice of being real.

The day will allow you to drop into a deeper, unmasked version of yourself and equip you with tools to take home for Christmas. 

The workshop is open to experienced people as well as people new to authentic relating.

The location is a 5 min walk from Highgate tube station into Queens Wood.

People said about previous days:

"Dirk held a soft space in which I was able to relax, and enjoy the workshop and connected well with the other people there. I came away feeling refreshed"

"I yearn for more connection in my life, so this workshop was right up my street. I left the day feeling more present and connected to myself and the other participants. I really enjoyed the exercises, some of which I plan to take into my daily life. Dirk created a safe, generous and warm space. It was fun and deep, my favourite combination. I look forward to the next one."
