BYOV: Be Your Own Valentine! Authentic Relating Games on self love @ Cirque de Vol

The hardest person to love is often oneself – ironically, especially on Valentine’s Day when outside love is so greatly celebrated. At this games night, we are going to explore our single most important relationship – our relationship with ourselves. How do we feel when we are most in love with ourselves? When we are not so in love? Why? What are these pieces in us that we so enjoy, and what do the parts we feel ashamed of actually serve? We’ll celebrate, love on, explore, hold space for, and honor ourselves while in communion with a kick ass group of people who are all on the same wild ride. We invite you come play with us, and Be Your Own Valentine this year! I mean, you already know your favorite candies and flowers, right?

All are welcome!

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi


What is Authentic Relating and Circling?

Authentic Relating is the practice of utilizing relationships as a lens for self-discovery, and vulnerability as a tool for mind-blowing, heart-opening connection. Circling is this practice in group form, with one person being the focal point.

A collection of values create a spacious, safe, transformative container for each practice: Honor self, honor other, hide nothing, everything is OK, and owning your experience.

What is an Authentic Relating Games Night?

An Authentic Relating Games Night is a super-playful, sometimes-deep community gathering where we use a mix of facilitated improvisational games and collective awareness-raising experiments to craft a night of Authentic Relating in community connection form. It’s fun, it’s opening, and it’s really something to be experienced!

What is AuthenticNC?

ANC is a collection of coaches, spiritualists, dreamers, connectors, world-rockers, and community-makers who come together to achieve a common desire: create a space where love grows, wounds heal, and community connection flourishes. Feel free to check out Authentic World and The Integral Center – where this work originated and now branches off into other communities all around the world.
