An Eye-Opening Course!

This authentic relating course has been eye-opening to me. It taught me that so little is required to truly relate to another and to experience deep intimacy. I could’ve never assumed that these methods work so well. I think this is especially valuable for men who are looking to get better at relating. Damien will strip everything away, and make you experience so much by having to do so little. The exercises with the group immediately give you a clear imprint of how it feels to be really seen and heard. I am stealing his valuable lessons and using those on my men. If you’re in doubt, just do it. It’s so worth the money.

What This Training Will Show You How To Do

Authentic Relating offers practices that have you:

  • Develop a deeply embodied presence of listening
  • Rediscover an innate wonder and curiosity
  • Know how to validate and soothe wounds and traumas
  • Feel comfortable with sharing your vulnerability
  • Own your desires in a way that feels really good for everyone
  • Express your boundaries clearly and cleanly
  • Drop into incredibly potent spaces of connection

And that’s just the start…

See the thing is all relationships are created through the way we relate.

Life is composed of relationships.

No matter where we turn, we will find that the quality of our life is fundamentally tethered to the quality of our relationships.

Take a moment right now to reflect on some of your most memorable life experiences.

You will probably find that at least some of them, if not all of them, include other people.

Love, family, friendships, community, prosperity, and sex… all come back to the quality of our relationships with other people.

“Humans are not solitary creatures. We are in relationship, always. Do you ever stop and ask yourself, “What is the quality of these relationships in my life?”

Damien Bohler, Course Creator


We grow high-quality relationships through high-quality relating.

Relating that is vulnerable, mindful, joyful, in integrity to our authentic selves, and capable of listening deeply to others.

Yet relating is not something we are taught, pretty much anywhere!

We grow up watching the adults around us and the ways they relate. We just inherit it, bad habits and all. Many of us didn’t have the best role models. So we’ve been living life bumbling along doing the best we can.

Perhaps we’ve been too scared and shy to speak up and be heard… or claim what we want. Perhaps we have been uncomfortable with establishing good boundaries with others. Perhaps we have been yearning for deeper connections but not quite sure how to get them other than hoping to be lucky.

The cool thing is that relating is a skill that really can be developed.

I was totally blown away by your articulation of concepts and keeping everything practical – and in keeping such a safe container. Your ability to create something so practical for use in real life and relating also. And bringing together other people who want the same level of authentic relating too. I honestly can’t thank you enough for your work in the world. I feel so blessed to have been part of the immersion.

Retreat Facilitator
It is hard to explain to others outside the course how we’ve created such a safe space to go so incredibly deep in such a short amount of time. It’s literally been 3 weeks since our first conversation, and I feel the depth of what we’ve co-created is deeper than any other relationship I’ve ever been in.
