T-Group for Business Professionals

​If you arrive later than 6:40 pm, you will not be let in.

​T-Group for Business Professionals is a social laboratory that focuses on the present-moment experience within and how that impacts interpersonal interactions. You can expect a group, of no more than 12 (with 1-2 facilitators).

​Through practicing T-Group much like you’d go to the gym, you can increase self-understanding, social awareness, responsible decision-making, self-leadership, and interpersonal skills.

​T-Group begins at 6:30 PM and extends until 8:30 PM. Celo will be open after for at least 30 minutes for those who are looking to continue connecting!

​Community members of Celo are allowed to register for free. If you want to donate, we appreciate your support! Please DM Dakota Quackenbush on Telegram for an access code. If this is your first T-Group, Authentic Bay Area requests that only one member of your company/team attends at a time as we will work on interpersonal flat spots & find that when an individual is new to T-Group, working on these dynamics with strangers across companies is more conducive with our method of learning.

​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.
