Authentic Bay Area educates humans on how to develop greater social-emotional intelligence through practicing relational mindfulness. Our teachings are based on the methodologies of Authentic Relating, Circling, and T-Group.

We practice communication games that are designed to teach individuals how to create deeper connection with themselves and others through stretching our relational intelligence.

Our pedagogies are hard to explain and easier to experience. Our community provides an excuse to connect about things that matter while learning from each other’s humanity.

Our curriculum strengthens your relational fitness through developing:

+ Self Understanding

+ Social Awareness

+ Responsible Decision-Making

+ Self Leadership

+ Interpersonal Skills

Dakota Quackenbush is the founder of Authentic Bay Area. She has been taking up space in the Authentic Relating world for the last 5+ years. Her background working in addiction and mental health already had her rooted in vulnerability, depth, and analyzing social dynamics when she found AR. Once discovered, she quickly began incorporating this technology into her everyday living. She is actively researching Authentic Relating’s Impact on Social Emotional Skills in Intrapersonal and Interpersonal Relationships. Her focus in life is reducing the stigma surrounding mental health and making authentic, vulnerable connections the norm. Dakota regularly closes her eyes to connect to her emotions and physical sensations. When she’s not facilitating connection, she can be found writing poetry or dancing any time a beat comes on.
