WETAPIN - NAVIGATE HUMAN, TOgether
Redefining networking through play and creative collaboration
*Check out our past WeTAPIN events including "Out Fear" "Own Happy" and "Crack Your Emotion Code" HERE.
WHY WE ARE DOING IT
Being human can sometimes be difficult and frankly, frustrating. It can also be joyful and very fun. Unfortunately, we were never given a "how to" manual for operating our emotional world. We know how to navigate our phones better than our own hearts. Yet life, work and relationships bring challenges, and the only way we can learn how to meet them is through practice.
We believe the best way to navigate human is to practice fine-tuning and leveraging our mind and body's compass - our emotions - to thrive during times of both joy and hardship. It worked in New York City so we thought we would try it out in the East Bay of Cali.
HOW WE ARE DOING IT
And how can we best do this? We don't do it alone. We do it in community. We utilize the support of others. We co-create ways to explore and navigate the tough stuff and have a ton of fun doing it. We use compassion and life experience to drive our exploration around universal topics that we will no doubt experience in our lives as a group.
WeTAPIN expertly guides participants through four stimulating sections of the chapter:
- Interaction: Engaging ice-breaker activities used to stimulate new connections through play and friendly inquiry
- Information: Using cutting edge research to inform and guide group discussion related to the topic
- Meditation: Facilitating ancient mindful and meditation techniques that can be used in daily life - at home and work
- Innovation: Co-creating a way to navigate human through visual design and collaborative art
WHEN AND WHERE WE ARE DOING IT
We offer seasonal opportunities to TAPIN to the resource of community in a safe space, co-creating solutions to meet life's challenges head on. WeTAPIN events are held conveniently post-work, on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30pm hosted at Euclid Manor, a co-living, communal house where deep connection, bold inspiration and collaborative fun are the rules we play by.

WETAPINS OF PAST
WeTAPIN TO UNWRAP ANGER
WE OUTED FEAR, WE OWNED HAPPY, AND BRAVELY MOVED TO ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL AND INTENSE EMOTIONS, ANGER. THROUGH KUNDALINI YOGA AND ART, AND BOXING MOVEMENTS, THIS EXPLORATION UNWRAPPED THE LAYERS OF ANGER ALLOWING US TO BETTER UNDERSTAND ITS POWER, MAKING US UNSTOPPABLE, FEARLESS BEINGS.
WETAPIN TO OUT FEAR
FEAR HAS THE ABILITY TO PROTECT US BUT IT OFTEN HOLDS US BACK FROM EXPERIENCING LIFE AND DOING WHAT WE LOVE. THROUGH VIDEO INTERVIEWS, FEAR OUTING RITUALS, AND A POWERFUL GROUP DISCUSSION, THIS EXPLORATION RECLAIMED OUR POWER OVER THE CLUTCH OF FEAR BY BOLDLY NAMING, EXPOSING AND SHARING OUR BIGGEST FEARS, THE VERY THINGS THAT HOLDS US BACK.
EXPLORATION LEADERS: Anne Koller, Creator of TAPIN and Kurt Peloquin, Co-founder of Great People Unite
WETAPIN TO OWNING HAPPINESS
WE BELIEVE THAT IN ORDER TO EXPERIENCE TRUE INNER HAPPINESS, WE NEED TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS IN OUR BODIES AND MINDS. THROUGH GROUP HAPPINESS MAPING, DISCUSSION AND PHYSICAL MOVEMENT, THIS EXPLORATION DIVES DEEP INTO THE INNER WORKINGS OF WHAT DRIVES OUR HAPPINESS AND HOW OWNING OUR EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE MAKES US HAPPIER BEINGS.
