"Juicy. Gorgeous. Heart opening. Scary. Needed. Growth. Lost all sense of time during those few hours. Gaia and Ronan: your workshops are one of the highlights of my month."
Join us for a night of deep connection.
We are all craving deep connection and intimacy, yet the rules of social norms rarely allow us to get beneath the surface of what's really going on. We long to show our vulnerability, yet it also terrifies us!
This workshop offers a safe and playful environment to slowly open up, and allow those hidden parts of us to be seen and loved. We invite every part of you to this workshop, whether you're feeling full of joy, or riddled with anxiety, we say it's all beautiful.
Combining elements of theatre games and tantric techniques you’ll be eased in to the experience with laughter and silliness, and taken on a journey of self discovery, learning to drop our guards and allow others in.
We've both been on a journey to discover the most effective ways of authentically connecting. And we've found that time and again it's the simple act of 'eye-gazing'.
Eye gazing is a little different to eye contact. You’ll be surprised at how much you can uncover in other person, and the emotions you’ll feel through the experience. It rarely disappoints.
As William Shakespeare once said "the eyes are the window to your soul"
The beauty of the exercise is that it’s alarmingly easy, yet so rarely done, even with our most intimate relationships. There’s incredible power to gazing with someone you’re already in close relationship with (friends, lovers, and family), but it’s equally wondrous to do it with complete strangers.
What we are most afraid of is being seen for who we really are, in fear that we will be rejected, and yet being seen and loved for who we truly are, is the very thing that we are all longing for, and the key to setting us free.
If you’re ready for deeper connections, new friendships, and a community of like-minded souls come and discover the possibility that awaits...
