AUTHENTIC RELATING at Westgate
About the workshop
You may have heard of the Hunger Games… but what about the Authentic Relating Games?
Intimacy Coach Major Tom will lead you through “games” — experimental exercises designed to tap into what makes you tick, why you tick the way you do, and healthy, positive ways to fully feel your emotion, and handle it in stride, with grace and as your best self.
This is a 2-hour journey, safe environment, of stepping out of your shell, healing your relationship with yourself, and learning to be comfortable in your own skin and then taking your most authentic being to connect with others. The Authentic Relating Games, put simply, are a place to practice being human.
What kinds of experiences are waiting for you at the games? This is an opportunity to:
- Expand your friend circle
- Learn something about yourself
- Explore the human experience
- Have the courage to reveal something about yourself
- Have the compassion to hold space for another as they reveal themselves
- Feel and express lots of JOY!
Your facilitator is skilled at organizing game sessions to suit whatever context and goals you desire. Most game sessions are built around a theme - exploring masculine/feminine polarity, setting healthy boundaries, etc. These settings give participants the opportunity to dive deeper into a specific area of their life which they intend to explore.
The Authentic Relating Games are set up one-on-one, in small groups and/or with the whole group. Some are light, fun and playful, while others are serious and edgy… but, no worries - they each have a focus on paying attention to your experience of yourself, and others, in the present moment. You’ll tap into the good stuff.
Trained as an authentic relating facilitator, I utilize Integral Theory for teaching different practices in acting, movement, and intimacy.I create brave spaces to bring people together to show up fully and authentically.
Authentic Relating Games allow you to intimately know yourself and create a space for decentralized processing. As an intimacy permissionary, I use games to go to places that are from ecstatic joy to deep sorrow. All of you welcomed and invited to my workshops utilizing Integral Theory incorporating elements of psychodrama, tantra, authentic relating, and improv.
