    Event description

    THE ALCHEMY OF HUMAN CONNECTION

    • Transformational Presencing is a deep and fascinating Authentic Relating (A.R.) practice that involves presence, empathy, intuition, reflection and self-expression.
    • This process is partly based on the Authentic Relating practice of 'Circling'.
    • In these Online Groups one person is the focus for around 25mins, as they talk about some specific aspect of their life.
    • During this, the base role of the other participants is simply to be present and broadly empathic - to extend their attention to that person.
    • In terms of more overt participation, they may offer curious questions designed to better understand what the person is talking about, and also occasional impact shares to mention a feeling response to what was just said.
    • There is no advice giving, and no analysis or therapy. We simply go on a curious supportive journey with the focus person.

    This event is slow-paced, supportive, social, easy-going, and suitable for those with little or no A.R. experience. However, this is not recommended as someone's very first experience of self-discovery work. When we describe Presencing as an effortlessly powerful practice in deep connection to self and others, that's not some gimmick.

    -------------------------------

    Practicalities:

    4-6 participants. (Typically 3 will have the chance to be the focus person at any single event.)

    Authentic Relating is an internationally-established field of conscious relating skills. Developed in the 1990s in the US, and soon reaching Europe, there are now numerous AR community movements across the world. 'A.R.' is just a convenient name for a broad system of self-development that focuses on our natural human capacity to assist each other to evolve and heal just by being real, present and curious.

    • There is never any 'trying to fix' and no focus on advice-giving. Such things put us in a different neurological state, which is actually the least useful state for supporting deep congruent change in our systems of self-belief.
    • A.R. is NOT Radical Honesty. People are always at sovereign choice. There is never any pressure to voice anything you don't wish to.

    There will be a short break between each focus-opportunity.

    -------------------------------

    WHAT PRESENCING ISN'T:

    This isn't therapy: It can be very helpful in processing challenges or trauma-residue, but that happens organically. It isn't suitable for people who aren't comfortable to potentially encounter deeper edges of themselves or others. 

    This isn't a 'System' to 'be perfect at': Participants are supported to connect with their own resources. We don't use specific maps or expectations of 'how to be'.
