I lead a monthly Relational Alchemy Community Night event in the SF Bay Area. These nights focus on building conscious community and expanding what is possible in our interactions and relationships.
This month I am co-leading
Authentic Dating: Dating without an Agenda with Maya Diamond on Friday, November 15 at The Sacred Stream Center in Berkeley.
Join the Relational Alchemy Facebook group to keep in touch with the community.
‘Relational alchemy’ is an evolution of personal growth into relational growth. We begin from a place of embracing and taking responsibility for our unique personal experience. That is the foundation of integrity. Then we reach out, with love and respect, to relate with each other’s experience. That is where the magic happens! Because when we tell the truth, the truth changes.
There is no cookie-cutter mold for how you should be or what relating should look like. Everyone is a complete universe unto themselves, has a unique style, personality, and integrity that is perfectly *them*, and everyone is perfect and amazing as they are (including their belief that they aren’t.)
These nights involve a series of fun, social exercises that demonstrate and explore relational alchemy, getting to know yourself better while at the same time learning to see and appreciate more about everyone you connect with. There will also be unstructured time for connecting with each other and fostering community.
All this is within a light-hearted container which is safe for getting real, taking emotional risks, and personal growth. Everyone has an opportunity to profoundly see and be seen, where there is nothing to ‘get’ and judgements and distractions fade away.
Things to expect: laughter, relief, anxiety/excitement, reverence, love and connection, new friends, and new possibilities for how you engage the world
