Since 2019, i to i has offered a variety of evening, full day & multi day workshops across the world, bringing together authentic relating and embodiment exercises that:

  • Establish meaningful connections that really last

  • ​Safely explore your vulnerability

  • Highlight and train your awareness of physical sensations

"Laurie led us through a series of games and exercises that allowed us to open up and create very real bonds with others and with our own selves. Many emotions were felt in the safest most welcoming environment" 

Jason - Wellington, New Zealand

Who am I?

I'm Laurie (he/him), a queer British-Kiwi who’s current home-base is Amsterdam. My passion is creating spaces that cultivate healthy, thriving human-to-human relationships, helping people take off their masks, feel their sensations and celebrate their aliveness on Earth. With a background in the Vipassana meditation method, I strive to bring deeper awareness into all areas of life, especially the interpersonal.  Since 2019, I have organised and facilitated hundreds of Authentic Relating, Dating and Embodiment workshops in Oceania and Europe. My training includes the Authentic Life Course, The Embody Lab, and the Connection Institute. I have facilitated at internationally acclaimed festivals such as Stretch, and organisations such as ART International. Click here for a more extensive portfolio.


My workshops have sparked thousands of nourishing connections, turning many strangers into life-long friends. I look forward to holding space for you!



"I live with complex PTSD and anxiety so in the past I have really struggled to open up to people and build meaningful connections. Discovering Authentic Relating has been a life changer and both my therapist and I are thrilled with how my confidence has blossomed in recent months. Laurie's time and generosity really means the world to me"

Sarah - Berlin, Germany

"I'm amazed at how your workshops continue to lift me up. It's such a delight to meet new people, genuinely, and feel the warmth and excitement of budding connections"


Doug - Portland, United States

"Authentic Dating has been the most positive experience I've had in meeting genuine souls with the intention of finding love/romance for over 6 years"


Matthew - Bristol, UK

"Thank you so much for creating a space in which such well-aligned people could come together. I can't think of the last time I met so many wonderful, open-minded people in one go like that. It was a real pleasure"
