If you have any questions about whether the event would suit you, pop us a message and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
WHAT will we explore?
Our focus will be on the enriching pillars of Authentic Relating, Authentic Movement, Sound Toning and Circling.
Authentic Relating is an interpersonal meditation. It is the practice of listening and speaking in deeper awareness of our present moment bodily sensations, allowing us to weave richer, more truthful and loving human-to-human connections.
Authentic Movement asks us to move from a place of subtle listening and ease, and is a way to promote freedom of expression through simple relaxation.
Sound Toning is a yogic practice where certain sounds are created in alignment with particular areas in the body. The overall process of sounding in a community setting relaxes the voice, creates depth of awareness & calms the nervous system.
Circling is an organic, in-the-moment interpersonal group process that’s equal parts art form, meditation, and group conversation — all designed to allow a visceral experience of connection and understanding of another person’s world, celebrating who and where they are right now.
Together, we will create a rich container to explore the many layers of our human experience, including our secrets, treasures, and triggers. Through these four enriching practices, we can enquire, understand and celebrate the realness of interpersonal dynamics, as well as connection to self.
WHERE will it be?
The event will take place at The Yoga Room, Deptford, London, SE8 4BY.
It is right next to Deptford train station and only one stop away from London Bridge. Super accessible, huge windows, comfy floor seating and luscious plants. The studio is fully equipped with air conditioning and heating, a bathroom and a kitchenette.

The space holders:
I'm Laurie, and I love holding space for human-to-human connections to arise, deepen and flourish. I have facilitated over 200 Authentic Relating and Authentic Dating workshops in Oceania and Europe, including online, at festivals, and within organisations. My workshops have sparked thousands of nourishing connections, turning many strangers into life-long friends.
I’m Emily and I love to inspire and celebrate fullness of creative expression in others. As a voice specialist with a professional background in physical theatre and as an opera singer, I facilitate 1:1 and group sessions that offer purposeful integration time for the voice and the moving body, as a path to compassionate and thriving connections to self and to others. My sessions allow depth of permission to share your voice & communicate in your mess, your magnificence and the nuances in between.

"i to i was a game changer for me. I'm blown away on a daily basis as to how easy communicating and relating has been since doing Laurie's incredible workshop"
~ Andy, Auckland, NZ
"I felt so deeply and beautifully seen, heard and held by everyone in the group, and that was in large part because of Laurie's gift of facilitation"
~ Megan, Cape Town, South Africa
“Emily’s sessions are profound and deeply healing and I have experienced huge personal shifts working with her. The 1:1 voice and embodiment sessions are wonderfully playful, inspiring and surprising”
~ Briana, Scotland
“Using my voice and sound isn’t something that I regularly do on my own, so having your group makes a huge difference. I notice I feel lighter, embodied, more authentic and confident within myself after every session. Friends and family notice the difference in my energy and I always say I started the morning making sound with Emily and feel amazing. The way that you fully embody your voice and movements during the sessions is inspiring and the community has become part of my core support system”
~ Abby, USA
