Conscious Connections was the starting point for Low Entropy as an organization. In July 2015, we began meeting to have "Real Talk" with strangers and have since become a warm, friendly community of kind-hearted people who welcome all to join the conversations.
The purpose of Conscious Connections is to come together to collectively hold compassionate loving space for each other while exploring serious and transformational topics. We support each other by finding the similarity in everyone's words, this is not a place for debate or criticism... this is a place for love and acceptance. The safe space we create gives everyone an opportunity to be seen, heard and understood for who they truly are. By encouraging, supporting and focusing on the positive attributes of everyone in the room, we always walk away with new insights, connections and lots of Love.
Every meeting includes check-ins and introductions, a round table discussion related to the "topic of choice" (different topic every week), a hands-on exercise run by our incredible facilitators integrating the ideas from the session, and finally, we wrap up our gathering with a closing circle.
Hope you'll join us!

Curious about our philosophy of holding space? Read below:
Through creating a supportive environment, we encourage everyone to show up and be real. We choose to lift each other up, rather than put each other down.
We do our best to check our ego's at the door and show up in complete authenticity. Important steps include suspending judgement and refraining from criticism. We recognize when judgement comes up and we understand that judgement to be a reflection of ourselves. If I'm having a judgement, it says more about me, then it does about the person I may be judging. This awareness helps us to let go of judgement and replace it with compassion and acceptance for everyone in the room.
We hold compassionate space for one another by focusing on the positive qualities of everyone. While listening to each other, we look for the best in each person, we see that person in a loving space of kindness, support and acceptance for who they are. When we see others in this positive light, it helps them to recognize their own beauty and uniqueness.
We accept each other, flaws and all... we realize no one is perfect, and we understand that we're all here on this planet, just doing the best we can. We can be so hard on each other and we can be really hard on ourselves. Conscious Connections provides the space for us to begin being gentle with one another... including ourselves. It's an interesting phenomenon; when you're immersed in a loving space with people who only see the best in you, it allows you to start seeing the best in yourself.
