Authentic Relating Games for Families
June 29th, 10am-12pm
Imagine a world where we freely identify and express our emotional landscape, identify our needs and ask for what we need/want. Imagine fostering these skills as a family.
What happens when we feel safe to express the truth of our experience? What happens when we know our own yes and no from a young age? What is possible when we have deeply connected, trusting and intimate relationships with each other and our children?
Come explore our humanness, how we relate, how we nourish, encourage and nurture through GAMES!

Jennifer shares mindful, relational practices to foster deeper, more meaningful connection and help people be in their hearts. She has been steeped in the Solsara community for over 10 years, assisting and hosting practices all over the country, helping others to see and feel more of themselves, take bigger risks, and delight in true intimacy that is often missed in our consumer-driven, fast-paced society. She enjoys many formats in human relating and believes that intimacy in relating to one another is the medicine of our time. Our world lights up when we know ourselves deeply, share our essence, and witness others do the same.
Jennifer lives in Portland, OR with her partner, Jonathan Brinkley and their four-year-old, Luca. Together they create community gatherings with a focus on intimacy in relationship. They are dedicated to creating a world in which adults and children can identify and freely express their emotional landscape.
