Bringing Your Authentic Self to Community


Workshop — Bring Your Authentic Self to Community


Take a dive into your inner worlds and come out feeling more confident in your capacity for authentic self-expression while living in community.

We know how important developing shared governance, decision making and interpersonal communication is for thriving community. But what about cultivating the most important components – you and the people you live with? The more authentic and connected we are to ourselves and one another, the more creative, cohesive, and resilient a community will become.

However, authentic self-expression can be difficult and feel vulnerable or scary. What if I’m misunderstood or judged? What if my truth creates conflict or jeopardizes my inclusion? What if I have inner conflict and don’t know what is honest to share? What if I’m not sure what I think, feel, need, value or want?


Join this informative and interactive workshop to learn:

  • What authenticity is and why it’s so important for cooperative, intentional communities
  • The four main barriers to authentic expression
  • How to nurture our own healing, growth and skillfulness for more authentic expression
  • How to support and encourage others’ authentic expression and create a culture of curiosity, compassion, and collaboration
  • Experiential practices drawing from Nonviolent Communication, Authentic Relating, and Internal Family Systems
