Authentic Relating International (ARI) is our nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing authentic relating to communities who might otherwise not have access.


Since our company launch, we've been working with the jail and prison population in bringing authentic relating to incarcerated men and women, teaching participants how to cultivate and participate in healthy, nonviolent, compassionate relationships.

This is just the beginning.

Authentic Relating International (ARI) is committed to sharing this important work with students, educators, families, veterans, religious and political organizations, the justice department - you name it. We believe ARI has the power to transform any community willing to open their hearts and minds to the world of authentic relating.
