Speed Connecting!

Next event is January 17, 2019!

Speed Connecting – Find a date. Find a mentor. Find a friend. Definitely find you!

Come cultivate relationships and discover more of who you are when you are connecting with others! This is not your average networking or speed dating event, because you value deep connections in your life and want to laugh and connect with like-minded people.

  • Are you looking to make new friends and enjoy different activities in Ottawa?
  • Would you like to learn from a mentor, or have some experience and want to be a mentor? 
  • Would you like to find someone to go on a date with after having laughed together and shared deep conversation?

Then Speed Connecting is for you! This is an evening of highly interactive activities designed to cultivate connections waaaaaaaaaaay below the surface level and more in alignment with the truth of who we really are. Together we will consciously co-create a nourishing space to promote deep conversation, sparks of aliveness, a-ha moments in self discovery and much, much more!

 

Why Find a Date, Find a Mentor, Find a Friend?

We believe the basis of all rewarding relationships is the same – conscious communication at an authentic level of sharing our WHOLE selves. Wouldn’t you like to develop the skills to feel seen and heard, and the skills to hold space for really getting someone else’s real self too? Speed Connecting is designed to create space for this level of communication so that you are empowered to discover and determine for yourself if there is potential for a date, a mentorship, or a friendship.

Tickets are available here.
