ARG is a masterfully facilitated experience that give players a hands-on taste of of both the joy and skills of interpersonal connection.

Authenticity is acting and speaking in alignment with our inner feelings, desires, and needs. Authentic Relating (AR) is the practice of bringing our truth into connection with others’, so that we can weave a more rich and truthful human experience.

The Authentic Relating Games are an easy and fun way to introduce AR into daily life. They can help us experience deeper connections, boost empathy, see the world through others’ eyes, and understand ourselves better so that we can enjoy life more.

By the end of a game, you may feel like you’ve known your partner(s) for a long time. Many people express that they feel lonely or anxiety when entering a room full of strangers and leaving feeling like lifelong friends. Every game is a unique experience, whether you are playing it for the first time or the hundredth, because there is something new to learn about others and ourselves every time we enter into a new connection.

From simple curiosity games, to awareness-building and group activities which can take individuals safely out of their comfort zone, Authentic Relating games have the ability to profoundly and positively impact how we interact and live.

~ Shiva J is a Somatic Bodyworker, Tantra Teacher, Kundalini Yoga Instructor, Certified Life Coach, Licensed Clinical Hypnotherapist, and Master NLP Practitioner who has been in the world of transformational work since 2003.

With a 20+ year career in the fitness world under his belt he suddenly found himself with a severe back injury that prevented him from continuing on that path. Around the same time he found himself facing divorce, bankruptcy and homelessness. Determined to rise from these pitfalls he began to study holistic wellness, and Tantra to help heal his body, mind and spirit. Having prevailed over a rather bleak and almost hopeless dark night of the soul he experienced a spiritual awakening and discovered his true calling as a healer, and community builder.

With his unique perspective of the mind, body, spirit connection he has helped thousands of clients transform their lives. He combines all of these unique tools along with his gift of insight to help his clients overcome any physical or mental challenge they may be currently experiencing in their lives.

When not at work doing what he loves, Shiva J can be found at a local internet cafe sipping a dirty chai latte, attending ecstatic dancing, a drum circle, or out hiking or biking local trails and if you can't find him at all, he has probably taken a sabbatical and gone hiking or camping someplace more exotic!

Shiva J is available for private sessions, workshops and retreats.
