AuthenticRelating (AR) is a set of principles and practices designed to cultivate trustable, empowering and nourishing connections with everyone in your life. At its core, AR is making the implicit explicit, the hidden revealed, and the unconscious conscious. It is an embodied practice, a way of being, not of thinking.
The 5 Practices of AR:
When we welcome ourselves and our experience we can learn to welcome others as
they are, without fixing them, changing them, judging them, pushing themaway or
guarding against them.
It’s almost impossible not to assume. We do it as a way to create predictable
environments, because it is easier to assume than to take the time and energy to
make contact with reality as it is. Some assumptions are right, but many are wrong,
and they get us into trouble.
Reveal Your Experience:
Revealing ourselves is a way of being seen and known for who we are and of inviting
others into our world. It is a willingness to come out of hiding, to take the mask off,
to let the guard down, and be vulnerable and available for human connection.
Own Your Experience:
When we make other people and circumstances the source of our experience, we
give our power away. Owning your experience, finding the source of it inside of
yourself, gives you power back. It is an invitation to knowing yourself as deeply and
fully as possible.
Honor Self and Other:
To build and to keep nourishing relationships often have to do with the dignity of
acting in a way that supports your needs, and with the humility of acting in a way
that supports the needs of others.
This AR Workshop is all about relational magic. We welcome people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds to join us for a gathering of connection and community building. In a fun and profound way, we simply getto know each other (better) and explore the possible depth of human connection.There is no previous knowledge of this modality needed to attend, only your curiosity.
How often do we make a bad situation worse by meeting anger with anger, or charge with charge? AR is especially valuable when we’re faced with conflict as a way to soften up again and invite the other into our vulnerable or hurt inner landscape. But it sure is not limited to that. It is available in any conversation as a way to bring the focus to what’s most alive, and to reveal our present moment experience. We’ll dive in deep by slowing down and by letting unfold what’s already there, yet often unexpressed, hidden or lost in translation.
What you’ll walk away with after this workshop:
- Insights about reactivity, contraction and overwhelm in relationships and how to transform them into responsibility, expansion and nourishment
- Hands-on tools for creating more connection, depth, aliveness and authentic expression with the people in your life
- More knowledge and awareness of your core values, how to articulate them and how to address them when listening to others
- Profound, heart-opening and inspiring conversations with other participants that can lead to beautiful, long-lasting friendships
- Potentially becoming a part of anew and growing AR community here in Antwerp that meets more regularly and creates more relational magic together
