Welcome to The ART of Being Human -
Online Level 1
Authentic Relating Training
Our flagship authentic relating course has introduced the foundational tools and skills of this life changing practice to thousands of people around the world, and is now available online! The course is designed to make the learning of authentic relating as accessible, adoptable, practical, and engaging as possible, so that graduates can apply their new skills to their lives right away with immediate results.
We’ve designed this online course to give you the experience of profound connection, intimacy, trust, and aliveness with anyone you want, anytime, anywhere. The tools and skills we teach work across all social contexts, from the workplace to the living room, from strangers to partners and everyone in between.
Over the course of six weeks, our experienced ART Course Leaders expertly guide you through a curriculum that strongly emphasizes embodied and experiential learning. This is not a lecture or seminar – it is a deep dive full-immersion training that will leave you enlivened, heart and mind-opened, and deeply connected to yourself and others.
We’ve delivered the same Level 1 Course to spiritual seekers in Bali, jail inmates in Colorado, executives in New York City, and men and women from all across the social, cultural, economic, and political spectrum, of all ages and nationalities, on four continents. Universally, participants report profound and lasting transformation in all aspects of their lives. The course speaks in the shared language of human connection, and is designed specifically to include everyone in the practice of Authentic Relating, no matter what path they’ve traveled in life.
We believe that we all have the capacity to be bridges – between parts of ourselves, ourselves with others, and together with the world. The course’s mission is to build bridges, and use our bridges to heal, connect, and co-create a more enlivened, awakened world – together.
Participants regularly say that the ART Level 1 Authentic Relating course was one of the most powerful and transformational relational experiences of their lives.
“The Level 1 course has changed my entire view of my identity in a matter of two days. All the masks I used to wear have been stripped away and I have found myself for what feels like the first time. My heart feels so open to accept everyone in my life without judgment. I have found brothers and sisters who see me for who I am. I never thought I could feel so connected, so free, so alive! My life has completely changed.”
“I loved the facilitator’s delivery of the material – complete, competent, insightful, grounded, genuine, calm, approachable, and heartfelt. Overall, the course brought me countless insights, connections, and ear-to-ear smiles that I will treasure forever.”
