Welcoming trans, nonbinary, and gender expansive folks always.

Open to folks 21 and up.

Play, flirt, and experience connection. Open your heart and cultivate the heart/mind qualities that support healthy relationships:

  • Presence
  • Discernment
  • Personal accountability
  • Playfulness
  • Kindness
  • Self-Compassion
  • Embodiment
  • Non-Attachment

HOW WE’LL FLOW:

  • Large Group Discussion: we practice both in a large group with facilitators to guide the experience
  • Breath and Meditation: connect through guided thoughtful dialogue, mindfulness and movement
  • Multiple Breakout Room Sessions: 3-5 person small group playdates with others in community. Speed-dating, but slower, mindful and in small groups.

GROUND IN THE SELF: The group is guided in meditation to bring awareness into the body, and into the present moment.

SHARE EXPERIENCE: In smaller breakout sessions, individuals will connect over a playful and meaningful prompt that engages the mind, body, and heart that invite you into yourself, and into connection with others.

EXCHANGE WORDS: Each person will have the opportunity to share and be witnessed, as well as listen and hold space. Pairs will share in conscious dialogue as well as open, free-flowing conversation.

NOTE CURIOSITY: After having the chance to exchange with several people, participants will observe internally how they felt in the presence of each— perhaps intrigued, inspired, excited, eased (or not) in the presence of another. They’ll also note if there was someone they didn’t get to meet whom they wished they were able to have met. Participants privately indicate who they’re drawn to know a layer deeper still. Pairs who privately express mutual interest to connect beyond the experience will be connected following the event.

At humhum, we believe in the magic of connection, where spontaneity meets free-flow. The kind of magic where your heart opens, your eyes widen, and you meet yourself anew within each new exchange.

Every time you show up, you show up as you, for you.

And hey, you might just meet your match.

FAQs:

Where is it hosted?

On zoom. We’ll send you a calendar invite with a zoom link before the experience. Please join a few minutes early.

Will I meet everyone at the experience?

Our groups can be up to 50 people, so you’ll meet several through meaningful and playful exchanges, but not everyone.

Do I get to choose who I interact with?

We do our best to connect you with folks you may want to meet based on your form and connect you with as many people as possible. We invite you to stay open. This is a practice in surrender, opening, and curiosity. Because people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, and ages are welcome, view these interactions as dating practice with the potential for romantic connection, but not as a guaranteed pairing. We do our best with the information you give us to organize the rooms. It’s some method but mostly magic. Because we understand human nature, and how we naturally feel called to or drawn to certain people in group experiences, we offer something called Free-Will Connection, which allows you to indicate on a private form, if there was someone who you didn’t meet, who you’d like to connect with, if that sentiment is reciprocated, we connect you two following the experience.
