A playful evening exploring new and unusual ways of connecting with others. Often we fall into the same safe patterns in how we meet other people. Intimacy Safari gives you the chance to explore new territory.
This fully facilitated and guided session involves ways of meeting others inspired by the character and movements of animals. From big cats on all fours rubbing shoulders with each other, to skittish meerkats, to horses to the etheric ballet of jellyfish. Inhabiting the behaviour of others is a way of increasing our personal emotional and connective range.
Participants can take part either by watching others from the 'jeep' area, or by physically moving through the space as the various animals as guided by the host. At the end, the host guides participants back to human ways of connecting which may involve looking at each other in the eyes, touching hands or even spooning as the participants wish. All touch at this session (like everything else at Togetherness) is entirely optional and up to the individual. The idea of personal sovereignty is central to the work we do at Togetherness.
The evening lasts 90 minutes with an opportunity for discussion at the end.
