Intimate Connection for Psychedelic Singles
“Feels like the 10th date on the first night”
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could meet vibrant, open-minded people within the psychedelic community who were open to new connections?
Whether you are looking for your partner in crime, a juicy lover, or someone who sparks your curiosity, we’ve created a playful dating format that inspires deeper intimacy.
“Juicy. Gorgeous. Heart opening.”
“Both light and deep at the same time!”
“Love the community it creates and the souls it attracts.”
Speed dating offers the chance to meet many new people at once, but it rarely gives us the opportunity to really drop in together. In our desire to impress others we often put on a persona, rather than showing up as we are.
We advocate the virtue of slowness: taking your sweet time to arrive, connect, and follow your desires. By slowing down you become more sensitive to the chemistry arising, and are more likely to follow your instincts to find genuine connections that are right for you.
We welcome the full version of you, with all your quirks and imperfections, for this is really where the magic happens.
On the night:
We’ll break the ice with fun warm up games to relax into the evening.
We’ll gently guide you through a series of connection exercises to get beneath the surface.
We’ll dive into intimate questions you’ve always wanted to ask, so you can skip the small talk.
Laughter and silliness
Fun connection games
Falling in love, just a little bit.
Whether you meet the love of your life or simply nourish your heart with meaningful exchanges, you’ll leave feeling enriched, intrigued and inspired.
*This event is structured primarily for heterosexual relationships, but everyone is welcome to join*
About the Facilitators:
Gaia and Ronan met at the first Psychedelic Experience Weekend in the Netherlands in 2016. Since then they’ve embarked on an epic love story, travelling the world, offering workshops, and riding the highs and lows of being in love.
During their recent trip to Kenya, they delivered a series of workshops as part of Kilifi New Year Festival. Their work was designed to connect people from different walks of life in meaningful ways, to create a culture of love and authenticity. They were deeply inspired by their time away and have brought back valuable learnings to share with their London crew.
Slow Dating has been specifically created to offer up their most treasured techniques for meaningful connections, in the hope that others may find love and friendship with people who share similar values.
Gaia Harvey Jackson is a workshop facilitator and artist creating spaces for deep transformation and empowerment. She runs women’s circles, workshops and ceremonies around the world, helping people to mark significant moments, move through challenges, and celebrate life. Her work combines elements of theatre games, voice work, meditation, dance and ritual, creating safe and playful environments where people can authentically connect and release.
“Gaia always holds a safe and loving space to explore the depths of our souls. It's one of the only places I have in my life to truly be myself - no expectations, limitations or judgement.”
Ronan Harrington is a speaker on transformational change and the founder of Alter Ego. He facilitates group processes and weekend retreats for leaders and organisations to connect with their inner worlds, and lead from the heart.
“Ronan certainly knows how to grab the attention of his audience and take them with him on a journey of discovery and discussion”
