Welcome & Terms of Service

Our practices involve looking at and being intimate with the structures of one’s personal reality, including how we make sense of experience, individually and collectively. Carrying over assumptions from other practices can lead to misunderstandings. Read over the following statements to determine whether or not our practice will be a good fit for you.

We see you as a free agent capable of honest self-assessment and responsible choice. This is an invitation to take responsibility for yourself and your experience, including a willingness to set and maintain appropriate boundaries. By attending our events you take responsibility for your own safety and comfort, choosing to leave the practice or participate in any given moment. 

Not Psychotherapy
We do not follow a therapeutic model of diagnosis and treatment. Our method is educational. Our emphasis is relating. Our facilitators and coaches are guides. Our practices are practices of connection and meditation whose aim is to reveal more presence. We do not prescribe choices or actions. We are not psychotherapists; we do not see you as being in a therapeutic relationship with our facilitators. Participants are welcome to speak and explore developmental intentions such as “getting somewhere,” growing, and evolving, but we do not presume these are the drivers of experience. We work in the present moment, assuming wholeness moving to greater wholeness. 

The Expectations of Leadership
Our facilitators act in service of better relating through bringing more presence to what’s happening in the here and now. This may not follow typical expectations of a “group leader,” such as telling people the “right way” to act or making sure everyone gets along. We include the internal experiences of the leaders as part of the process. We invite you to listen to your own inner direction for leadership, and consider others’ responses as feedback to you in the context of the moment.

Is this Right for You?
Our workshops can be intense. We explore the unknown, the volatile, the ambiguous, as well as welcome emotions many deem as “negative” or “inappropriate” such as feelings of inadequacy, anger, sexuality, and joy. We often explore multiple sides of seeming opposites at once, and believe this can reveal an underlying unity of the immediacy of experience. We see bringing awareness to intense feelings as distinct from acting upon these feelings—we may ask you to pause or leave if we determine certain expressions risk leaving the practice of relational presence.

If the above description of our workshops sounds potentially overwhelming or destabilizing for you, if you have mental illness or significant emotional challenges that you feel may be exacerbated by this type of transformational environment, or if you are not sure that you can be self-directed in taking care of your needs during the event, then we advise you not to enroll. Finally, you must be at least 18 years old to attend.

By participating you acknowledge that you have read and agree to abide by these Terms of Service.

Los Angeles Relateful Immersion w/Mike Blas

Join us for this Weekend Immersion (Friday evening-all day Saturday and Sunday)

If mindfulness is the cultivation of awareness, Relatefulness is the cultivation of awareness interpersonally. Practicing Relatefulness is a frontier where any modality that explores the interpersonal space is included.

Flow is a practice with roots in Circling but an expanded inclusion. Flow can look structureless which can be quite intense for people to experience OR can feel as natural as seeing an old friend.

In normal life we rely on seemingly infinite conversational traffic norms that can feel like “politeness”. We don’t specifically set out to upend or disrupt these norms but seek to shed the limitations of thinking, “everybody needs to take a turn,” as well as “anything that looks like structure is wrong.”

There are no specific rules but you will notice people’s cultural norms creating clusters of behavior that look like implicit rules.

One thing that always happens is that we will all get in-the-moment feedback on what it’s like to be together. Another thing that always happens is we will appreciate exactly what we create. Some people have the thought, “If I was leading this I would _____!” No one is explicitly stopping you from creating that in this space. People in the space may or may not be enrolled but this dynamic assuredly will help us meet each other more.

The benefits of this practice are innumerable. From feeling alone in a crowd to navigating family dynamics the practice of Flow promotes a fluidity that seems to promote peace around concepts of Love, Truth, seen-ness, expression, and listening.

-Please come early enough so that you can get settled in the space before we start. 15 minutes is great. It’s ok if you’re just on time.

-The term “safe space” has come up a lot recently and this event is more like real life, a “brave space”. There are no guarantees about how you will be received by the group. If you want a certain kind of reception then you are empowered to create it. You can bring anything you want as long as you’re ready to see how it impacts the group. While this could look like low cost group therapy, in my experience, people who come to this event need to be secure in their adulthood and take agency to say yes and no. While I will be guiding the group this practice requires agency.

Feel free to come and leave if it's not what you're needing.

Here’s some videos and a podcast I made that can show you a bit more of kind of awareness I’ll be bringing.
