What is Heart-Centered Speed Dating?
This is a fun workshop designed for singles who are looking for deeper connections and heart-centered relationships. During this event we will guide you through the day by taking baby steps toward dating. You will mix and mingle through some fun icebreakers followed by heart-centered speed dating.
Who attends the Heart-Centered Speed Dating workshop?
This workshop caters to singles in their 40’s to 60’s who are looking for real love and real connection. Most of the participants are like you, looking for healthier and richer ways to connect with the other gender They are more health conscious, spiritual and tired of the bar scene and online dating.
How does it differ from the Speed Dating events I’ve been to?
I have attended some traditional Speed Dating events.They took place in a bar and upon arriving, I was surprised that nobody was there to greet me, making me even more nervous. As we waited for the event to start, we sat at the bar, and some of us girls bonded in the ladies room. This was followed by 5 minutes of 1/1 dates. And then you go home to make you choices online, and wait for the results.
The Heart-Centered Speed Dating workshop differs in that I am there to facilitate safe and meaningful connections. I choose locations like the Center for Creative Living in San Jose, to create a relaxing atmosphere. When you arrive my assistant is there to welcome and greet you, helping you get registered. As many people are nervous prior to the workshop, we begin with some fun ice breaker exercises where you’ll have an opportunity to bond with other singles over your commonalities. We then break into gender groups to bond and unite, building a supportive environment, also helping to dissipate any competitive feelings. The rest of the workshop is dedicated to the Heart-Centered Speed Dating. You’ll have an opportunity to meet one on one with each member of the other gender. You’ll have a few minutes to introduce yourselves and share a little about who you are. I then use questions from Susan Campbell’s Truth in Dating Game to help build real connections. My goal is for you to get to know each other on a deeper level, instead of just chatting about superficial things. Each of you will have an opportunity to answer the question, while the other person gets to know you better. Here are some examples:
Describe an ideal first date.
My greatest wish regarding relationship is…
After each of you has had a chance to answer the question, you will use the provided Date Card to note your interest in the other person. There is a section for notes, which you can take home to refresh your memory before your date. I will email you the matches within 48 hours and then let the dates begin!

Testimonial: “Thanks for creating a safe space and making the evening more than just how someone looks physically. The way you planned the evening was very thoughtful. I have done more traditional types of speed dating in the past, and I didn’t really connect with anyone at the event on more than a superficial level. I really enjoyed the evening and made some great connections with people.” Noel K.
