Slow Dating: Authentic Connection (Open Location)

  • Zoom

Slow down the swiping/speed-dating and meet awesome people who are interested in deeper, conscious connections!

What do we mean by Authentic Connection?

Authentic Relating Games (also called Connection Games) are designed to create deeper connections while having fun. You'll get prompts and guided exercises to help you relate beyond small talk and get to the heart of what matters to you. You'll have a chance to tap into your curiosity and cultivate your deep listening skills. 

Any level of experience with connection games is welcome, from beginner to well-versed!

What's Slow Dating?

The Slooowww element means we’ll have more than a couple of minutes for each date, and we’ll be focusing on bringing more awareness and presence to our conversations. We’ll also be pausing after each date for self-reflection and self-connection with embodiment exercises to soothe any jitters and reconnect you with your playful and empowered self.

Who is this event for?

This event is designed for Women seeking to date Men and vice versa. Monogamous, Non-Monogamous, and anywhere in-between. Trans and non-binary people are welcome. This event is open to people from any location and all ages 18+.

What will I leave with?

Potential matches: Privately share with the hosts whom you areinterested in connecting further with, and if the sentiment is mutual you will be notified after the event.

Games and Practices: You'll get to take home a copy of the connection game instructions so that you can use them with anyone you think may enjoy them. These practices are a great way to spice up any future date or add depth to any connection!
