Authentic Relating Ottawa (ARO) is a community of individuals committed to expanding connection to ourselves and to one another.

Our intention is to foster a community of people who are excited to live their lives as a laboratory for the discovery of: self, others, and what is possible through authentic relating.

ARO creates highly specialized events and spaces designed for participants to experience unprecedented opportunities for connection.

Individuals come to ‘get present’ – to themselves, and to others – for the purpose of discovery and play through participation in games, workshops, and social events.

Welcome to the Laboratory for Living! You’re welcome to come and experiment anytime…
