Authentic Relating – Trust & Interdependence
If, at some point in our experiences, especially as children, our dependency and attachment need was used against us, attacked or manipulated, we learnt that dependency equals being used. To prevent our deep feelings of hurt, weakness and powerlessness, we mastered strategies based on control, dominating, hiding our true selves, and power. Fear of failure is hunting us, and we have difficulties asking for help. We don’t allow ourselves to be emotionally close in our relationships.
In this workshop, we discover connection and compassion towards these wounded experiences. We allow healthy dependence and interdependence. We explore how we tend to give up on our authenticity to be who we think others want us to be. We develop the courage and strength to allow healthy dependency on others, which is an essential part of our relationships. We develop trust that we can be vulnerable, remove our masks and move towards increasing authenticity with ourselves and others.
Together, we create a group experience where the transformation is held and nourished and where we can support each other in our inner research. Using methods of Compassionate Inquiry and the Internal Family System combined with nourishing touch, and playfulness, we explore both our bodies: felt sensations, movement, voice, posture, and our minds and their different parts and belief system.

A non-sεxual experience
In this experience, we connect with others in a non-sεxual way. We acknowledge that the line between sεxual and non-sεxual interaction is not always clear; therefore, we provide clear guidelines on the nature of the physical interaction during this experience.
We remain fully clothed during the event (unless specified otherwise above). We do not kiss nor interact with sεxual zones: genitals or breasts. We respect that the space is not meant for sεnsual or sεxual interactions. We encourage awareness of sεnsuality and arousal, as they naturally appear in the frame of touch and intimacy, but without actively diving into sεxual energy or pursuing the stimulative touch.
On gender balance
In our experiences, we do not limit nor balance the representation of gender among our participants. We allow natural unfolding of the group participants. Every event might have a different gender ratio and different energy ratio (masculine, feminine, and neutral). We embrace all gender identities and body configurations.
For some of us, experiencing physical interaction with one particular gender might come more naturally than with others. We are invited to question our patterns, and approach touch outside the limits we define for ourself.
The importance of integration
The process in which we revisit, work through and make sense of the insights and content of our experiences is called integration. We believe in making a sustainable change in our life.
An essential step for this is to find time and space to explore those experiences. We can either integrate by ourself by meditation, journaling, or creating art, or with others, our coach, therapist or close friends and loved ones.
For this, we can join the Integration Space: a container where we can share our insights from our experiences. We usually host an Integration Space event every month. Check our next experiences for more details.
