Authentic Relating Games with Tate (after the MeWe Fair)

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Authentic Relating Games are activities designed to create the opportunity for authentic connection between individuals and with a group. They are not traditional games. They are interpersonal and interactive. They invoke individual expression, vulnerable sharing, and adult play within a practice space.

Interpersonal human connection becomes more available when we engage in these practices at our own capacity, with others. A sense of belonging, camaraderie, hope and enlivenment become more available to us through engaging in Authentic Relating games.

All games are optional and customizable!

"I remember being shy and a bit scared at the idea of sharing in this way with strangers on my first games night. I felt like a fish out of water, and yet, something called to me. Human connection called. I was so grateful to the facilitators of that first games night for creating the experience were an introverted, shy, emotional illiterate man could begin to open his distant heart and feel others join him in that." - Jesse, AP Facilitator

Who: Tate brings more freedom and connection into the world by inspiring people to be fully themselves in compassionate relationship with others - and providing an empowering environment in which this becomes possible. Tate has been facilitating Authentic Relating events and groups in the Portland, Oregon, area and online since 2013. In creating their offerings and workshops, they draw on their trainings in The Art of Circling [relational and transformational practice], the Hakomi method [a mindful somatic therapeutic modality], Inner Relationship Focusing [practice of self-listening], as well as, and importantly, on their lived experience of being an unconventional, curious, engaged human who is driven to participate in personal and societal evolution.
