What is ‘Authentic Relating’ anyway?

Authentic Relating, for me, is a way of being together that does not require ANY modification of behavior for there to be open flow in connection.

Where what is authentically showing up in the emotional realm, as well as in the dynamics between the two (or 3 or 5 or 10…) people, is seen as not only OK – but utterly beautiful and perfect.

Regardless of whether what is showing up is “wow, I feel so touched and grateful by what you just shared”, or “I notice that I feel orgasmic and turned on by your presence”, or “I feel super nervous right now and I feel like running away”, or “hearing you say that, I notice anger and judgement coming up”.

It’s complete and total permission for empowered vulnerability and effortless connection.

And how incredibly refreshing that is(!) in a world where the standard modus operandi in relationships seems to be centered around trying to modify behavior to be liked, approved of or not found out as *not* being the invincible superhuman we like to project our outward self image as.

Where we can… Just. Be. Fucking. Real.

Now this doesn’t mean complacency or sloppiness in relating. It is not an umbrella excuse for emotional dumping under the pretense of being ‘authentic’.

It’s an intelligent (IQ + EQ) way of going deeper into excitement, attraction, curiosity, of honestly knowing ourselves and others without judgement.

Of letting down our guard and walls where we can be truly seen.

And experiencing huge appreciation for the beauty, tenderness and sometimes fragility of the human heart and emotional flow.

As well as *noticing what it’s like to notice* the experience without *identifying with* or as the experience – and in that, Authentic Relating also becomes a gateway into Open Awareness and Embodied Awakening.

25-27 March in Utrecht, NL

With me and my dear friend Ryan D Brown.

Togetherness is king.
Grateful for you, for my friends and loved ones who are open for connecting in this way.
Much love to you,

P.S. And what does Authentic Relating mean to you?

What’s the experience like for you when you can just be fully who you are?

Vs. feeling like you’re ‘auditioning’ for someone’s approval all the time…

(I think we’ve all had that experience.)

    For me, it’s a feeling of utter relief

    And a feeling of heightened presence.

    I am able to look more fully, deeply, openly into another’s eyes. Listen more fully, deeply and openly to what they are saying. Without wondering/worrying what they are thinking about me. Without seeking their approval. Being unconcerned about coming up with the ‘correct’ reply. Feeling unable to ‘fuck up’.

    In short: un-selfconcious, yet super aware.

      “Feeling unable to ‘fuck up’.

      Un-selfconscious, yet super aware.”

      Beautiful.

      Thank you Joanna.

    People are afraid of losing what they consider as valuable connections to them, either family, friends or relationship. This is why they put a different mask on depending with whom they are interacting. I totally agree with what you said because I am all about Truth and I don’t compromise. Thank you!

    Aloha, I came across this post while Googling Authentic Relating after seeing one of the Game Nights offered at a Yoga Studio here in Oahu. I took an Intro to Orgasmic Meditation course a couple years ago and immersed myself in the community briefly, and I can’t help but notice how much of OM uses AR but there’s no mention of its influence anywhere. Curious to know if other AR practitioners are familiar with OM and their thoughts on the practice.

My very own sincere regret for not saying thanks to earlier.
