November Authentic Relating Games

Dear Community,

It’s been wonderful to hear from attendees of our events about how energized and grateful they are afterwards. I’m so excited about this response; it really motivates me to continue these monthly events and work to improve them. If you participated in an event and had a good experience, I invite you to share Authentic Relating Oakland with others so that we can continue to grow our community.

I’m incredibly grateful that Aïcha Doucouré joined me early on to co-facilitate our events. Her support with event programming and presence at our events has been so helpful. And I’m now happy to announce that regular attendee Ryan Brown has also stepped up and will be co-facilitating our next event. Thank you Aïcha and Ryan!


Our next Authentic Relating Games event will happen on Thursday, November 19, 2020, 7:00 - 9:00pm PT. (We’re meeting a week earlier due to Thanksgiving.) Please sign up using this form. This event is free and limited to 16 people so you're encouraged to register early.

What are Authentic Relating Games? Authentic Relating Games are a place to practice different ways of being human with others. AR Games interrupt our habitual ways of being, and offer opportunities to stretch ourselves emotionally, mentally, and relationally.

What are the games like? Some of them are played one on one, some in small groups, some with the whole group. They can be fun and playful, or serious and edgy.

Please note: Authentic Relating Oakland events will be online only during the covid-19 pandemic. Each participant should join from their own computer in a quiet space. After you register, you’ll be sent a separate email invitation.

With love,

Joshua
