All of us have an innate desire to relate to one another on a deeper level. But often we hold ourselves back. We fake a smile, engage in pleasantries, and project artificial versions of ourselves.
But what if we could be more authentic? What if we could deepen and broaden our ability to connect? What sort of magic would occur if we allowed ourselves to be more open and spontaneous?
The purpose of this very experiential event is to broaden our ability to make instant connections, and to deepen our innate ability of establishing rapport. In the process, we’ll learn about the walls or barriers we use to separate ourselves from others, when and how it’s appropriate to let these barriers dissolve, and how to trust and even thrive in pure spontaneity, without the need for outcomes or results.
We'll use tools from dialogue, gestalt, and appreciative inquiry to guide us. Even more fundamentally, we'll access our memories of how we've already done this in our lives. And how we might replicate and expand this ability going forward.
