Authentic Relating Games 

How we communicate shapes our world. Whether it’s with friends, teachers, 

co-workers, or coffeeshop strangers, our lives are a weave of the interactions we engage in. Authentic Relating Games are a collection of extensively tested, masterfully led experiences that give players a hands-on taste of both the joy and the skills of interpersonal connection. 

A traditional Authentic Relating Games workshop has 10-40 participants, and takes you through a series of interactions that are designed to:

  • Highlight and train body awareness

  • Create deep connection

  • Boost empathy

  • Strengthen community

  • Foster genuine curiosity

  • Expand perspectives

  • Be fun!

We challenge you to listen and reflect in realtime, to share your emotional state, to notice and reach into your desire, and to become self-aware within connection. 


From meditative depths of presence and ecstatic heights of joy, to somber melancholy and heart-pounding fun, the experience of Authentic Relating guides participants all the way through the human condition, allowing them to identify their feelings and recognize their needs.


Participants walk away with a profound sense of well-being, and an experiential toolkit that they can use right away to make every part of their lives even better.
