Ever notice how difficult it feels to truly reveal your most authentic self?
Join like-minded men and women as we playfully explore and practice revealing our authentic selves. These “game nights” are dedicated to helping men and women learn how to relate authentically and create intimacy and attraction in a free, fun, playful, and relaxed environment. These nights are worth their weight in gold. You will hear honest feedback on how you’re received by others and then get to experiment with new ways of being. Themes of the night include play, polarity, authentic contact, and desire. Walk away with an embodied sense of your presence, integrity and radiance. Space is limited so register soon. Contact Casey Capshaw at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303.881.3954 to reserve your spot today.

Harvard Developmental Psychologist Robert Kegan nails the essence of human development with this insight:
“The subject of one level of development becomes the object of the subject of the next level.”
In other words, what we think of as “us”: our thoughts, our sensations, our emotions, our history, our identity, is something that we can witness as well as enact, and as we do we grow. This is a call to practice. In meditation, for instance, we see a feeling, say anger, as an it or series of it’s. Instead of my anger, just … anger, arising in my body/mind as a fabric of thoughts and sensations. Not me, but mine.
Through transformational practice we enlarge the witness — by witnessing it! — and once again what was subject becomes object(s) to a new bigger Subject, which we can capitalize because it always feels holy. And that new bigger subject is You, a larger dimension of yourself, which is essential your self being liberated into more space and flow. So now You’re more you than ever, except with less grip and friction, enabling an ever-increasing flow of love, creativity and power.
On a good day, at least!
So let’s have a good day on Sunday with some exploration and practice. Stuart Davis will be here to shine his light on the topic as well.

At this event, Susanne Cook-Greuter and Beena Sharma will anchor an intimate dialogue about their work in understanding and applying ego-development stage theory with individuals and organizations. Susanne and Beena do intensive workshops on developmental coaching, and also work with various groups and organizations around the world, supporting an evolved and sophisticated understanding of the developmental perspective. In 2009, Susanne and Beena will be delivering workshops in Brazil, UK, Europe, South Africa and Asia.
In our evening together, Susanne will share with us her perspectives and the latest research on ego-development. Susanne and Beena will discuss cases where a developmental perspective has illuminated the coaching and development process. We will get an overview of how this work is being applied in organizations and both the potential and boundaries that define this work. The forum will be an open and interactive one, and you are invited to bring your own questions and understanding to make this a collective meaning-making conversation!
