Very often during my dates I was bored and tired of trying to follow a typical scheme of a “regular first date”, trying to show “the best version of myself”. It made me not open to the other person, because I was too busy with creating my best image😊. The same happend for the other person.
At the end I just thought this is a waste of time and got discouraged by dating.
But in fact I have been longing for a real, authentic connection on a deeper level. Even on the first date. I wanted to experience the real, alive other, not his avatar, and show the real me: sensitive, vulnerable but courageous enough to meet in this raw and alive way.
I was trying to create a format that would suport such a meeting of two individuals who while trying to know each other better, would very quickly be transferred to a deeper level of emotional connection.
And I created such a format.
I invite you warmly to try it on, if you long for really authentically meeting „The Other”, with no games but with great curiosity, vulnerability, sensitivity and openness.
I invite you to a special meeting. A meeting where a real You meets a real Other and beautiful things can happen.
Together with Marta Jankowska I will facilitate a date with empathy and it may happen that you will end this meeting with a big smile on your face and warmth in your chest. This is the power of authentic connection.
