In the age of iPhones and the interwebs, where people are more comfortable looking at screens than at people, connection has become a lost art. This Connection Jam, facilitated by Jonathan Bender, will not only help you connect with others, but also allows you to deepen your connection with yourself.
A Connection Jam gets you in touch with your own body, heart and voice as much as it does with other people. Think movement, self-expression, and heart-opening dialogue.
Connection Jams are guided processes (e.g., it's not just an open forum where anything goes). In a safe and fun space, you will begin with connecting with yourself first, then move into interconnection with others.
This safe container takes you through a fun and embodied process (you'll be moving around a fair amount). Introverts are incredibly welcome--we'll have some exercises for you to feel more energized around others.
Note: this is not Contact Improvisation nor is it sexualized/romantic contact.
Bring a water bottle. Wear clothes you can move in.
