* Are you done with the frustrations of online dating and are looking to find real love in the real world?
* Are you at loss about where to go in the SF Bay Area to meet other attractive, conscious, like-minded singles?
Free yourself from the drama and drag of "dating-as-usual" and enjoy a fun, amazing evening with a group of high-vibe, heart-centered singles.
Who's It For?
Slow-Speed Date Night for Spiritual Singles is for Bay Area singles seeking conscious love and romantic partnership, who value personal growth and spirituality, meditation, yoga, mindful- and sustainable-living and who dream of contributing to the world with their partner through the expanded love and synergy that emerges when two souls meet.
Participants are self-selecting based upon shared values of presence, self-awareness, authenticity, sexual-spiritual integration and feminine-masculine balance. Because of the semi-structured dates that allow for real and deep connection, Slow-Speed Date Night is ideal for individuals with a more introverted or introspective nature.
Due to the logistics of pairing men and women, this particular event is best suited for straight singles. If you're interested in a queer-friendly event, or another cultural identity group, and are able to help with hosting or outreach, please get in touch with Jan.
Why "Slow-Speed" Dating?
Slow-Speed Dating is different from classic "Speed-Dating" in 3 significant ways.
It facilitates deeper levels of communication and connection beyond superficial small talk.
The tone and pace is mindful, grounded and deliberate rather than hectic and rushed.
The spirit of interaction is heart-centered and relational rather than mind-centered and transactional.
This means you will leave the evening feeling nourished, open-hearted, and energized, rather than dizzy and drained because the emphasis is on quality, non-judgmental relating in the moment between two human beings for its own sake. If romantic sparks fly, that's an added bonus!
This is called "Slow-Speed" Dating because, when you are in your heart, time slows down. The heart (4th chakra) relates to the 4th dimension of time. Think about a time when you've lost yourself in kissing or passionate, dreamy lovemaking. Time no longer flows according to ordinary perception.
How Does It Work?
You will get to interact with 10 or more opposite-sex participants in short, structured "mini-dates." For each mini-date, you will be prompted to explore and share one question or embodied activity. (i.e. meditation, eye-gazing, nurturing touch, breathing, movement with awareness).
After each mini-date, you indicate your interest on a date card in getting to know one another better and connecting on a future date. If you both check "yes", you are a "mutual match"; you will be given each other's contact information. Match information is emailed out the day after the event.
What Do We Do?
The interactive heart-opening exercises during the slow-speed dating portion of the evening are consent-based and designed to create opportunity for both verbal and non-verbal communication in a non-judgmental way, holistic way. So, you're not just talking heads; you are getting to relate as whole human beings.
There will also be unstructured social time following the slow-speed dating to further mix and mingle with those you'd like to connect more deeply with.

- Opening circle
