We all connect with people, each and every day. However, we often do not learn the art of connecting well. In this Art of Connection workshop we will discover that relationships are something you can actively build capacity in and we will explore how to do so.
WHAT WE WILL EXPLORE
• The basics of Authentic Relating and Circling, including:
• Meditative presence, body awareness and non-violent communication
Circling creates deep connection – fast. We practice simply being present with what arises in the moment, both in ourselves, and in connection with other people, stepping away from story and assumption, fixing or changing. And the beauty is; it is not rocket science. All you need is a willingness to show up and be vulnerable, and a brave heart. We will explore:
• The basic skills to drop a layer deeper to experience a sense of belonging and connectedness.
• Slowing down and inquiring into the present moment.
• Showing up in vulnerability as well as being received exactly for who you are.
You will leave this workshop with practical tools which you can use straight away, in all of your relationships.
This workshop is for everyone open to explore human connection and willing to take full responsibility for their experience. In order to get the most out of this experience, some experience in inner work and self inquiry is preferred. In case you are in doubt, feel free to contact one of the facilitators – Anke Verhees and Miriam van Groen.
MIRIAM VAN GROEN:
“After teaching, coaching and facilitating long-term change processes in higher education, I burnt out 5 years ago. My embodied and connective practices, along with high dose injections of self-compassion, facilitated my shift into now supporting fellow recovering perfectionists that want to unstick their life”
WHAT OTHERS EXPERIENCED
“If you are ready to let go of all the things not authentically you, connect deeply on a consistent basis and / or practice Circling, this is for you. Anke Verhees is a pro in creating a safe environment, a loving atmosphere and the support you need to do just that. It’s fun, humbling and very, very beautiful. For me an experience I will never forget.”
