Hi, I'm Warren. I have been facilitating Gestalt-inspired Relational Groups (a good way for otherwise anxious people to relax and get to know each other) in Wairarapa for a year and a half, and now would like to start a weekly (or fortnightly) group in Upper Hutt. I'm not charging anything (just shared room hire) because I get so much out of these groups as it is. We had a real lack of men interested in Wairarapa so that's why I'm wanting to start a Hutt group. Hopefully to find about 10 people of evenly mixed gender because this is how the groups work best.

If you are wondering what the heck a Relational Group is (which you probably are!) then I think the best place to start would be the facebook page I started and then also if you would like to know more about Gestalt Groups (which is what inspired me) you could google Gestalt groups or also check out this great article by Mark Fairfield:

If you think you might be genuinely interested in being a committed part of a regular group, then please indicate your interest by messaging me via relationalwai(at) When we have at least 10 people, we can discuss which evening to meet up for a couple hours. The date set here is only approximate.

If you are reading this and afraid you will be asked to hold hands in a circle or that you will be pressured to share your feelings on the spot and that this just isn’t your thing, then message me! Tell me whatever it is that you don’t want to do.

These groups are about truth, including yours. It’s not about fitting you into a box that you will not fit into, or getting you to perform, impress, or agree to any kind of a role. The power and movement (and grace) happen when we give ourselves permission to be who we truly are. Rough, soft, gruff, delicate, masculine, feminine, loud, quiet, energetic, exhausted, inspired, uninspired, silent, seething, or loud. Dial it in and bring it on!

Nothing nourishes me more than seeing people explore coming to life in ways they never had a chance to do so before. Whatever it takes. We humans need each other. And sometimes we can’t do it alone. I couldn't. Don’t like naked personal drama? Great. I want to hear about it and see you be yourself, however, that might look, or whatever process or support or activity you might need to get there.

Message me if interested or leave a comment or question here. Hope to see you soon!
