Monthly Personal Contour

Monthly Personal Contour

Use the power of community and Authentic Relating to help you navigate your personal journey.


January is a month when we’re inviting a lot of change into our lives. But intentions, goals, and new habits can disappear quickly if you don’t have a team on your side – cheering you on, keeping you accountable, and recognizing you for how far you’ve come.

This is what Monthly Personal Contour provides: a like-minded community that witnesses and supports you on your personal journey. Each month in 2023, on the last Saturday of the month, we’ll open a safely held space to share our wins and struggles, and get perspective on our journey from others.

If you’re tired of doing personal growth on your own and want to meet others like you, this is the place! The next meetup is on January 28th at the Salisbury Centre.

What to expect

This is a recurring, monthly meetup that allows you to connect with your goals and intentions, and use the community as a mirror for your growth. Others will allow you to see things about yourself that you often don’t see otherwise: your blind spots, your biggest strengths, places in which you need to grow, and areas in which you’ve just made huge progress.

The three core practices of Monthly Personal Contour are:

  • Self-reflection. Connecting to yourself before connecting to others is essential. There will be mindfulness practices, journalling exercises, and other activities to support you with that.
  • Authentic Relating. Authentic Relating games will allow you to get perspective on yourself, your growth, and your path. It is in connection with others that most “juicy” personal growth happens.
  • Rituals. By participating in rituals together, we create a shared, meaningful experience. This is the way to ensure a sense of safety and structure in a community, as well as to integrate the learnings.

If you have more questions about what to expect, you can email me at marta@contour.events anytime.

About the facilitator

My name is Marta Brzosko and I will be your guide and facilitator during this retreat. I run a regular Authentic Connection Group at the Salisbury Centre, as well as facilitate community trainings and group meetings. Mindfulness and Authentic Relating are two practices that guide me in my life.

I hold a post-grad diploma in Mindfulness and Compassion and have completed the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme. I trained with Authentic Revolution in Authentic Relating and Leadership skills, and right now I’m in the process of getting trained as an Authentic Relating Facilitator.

Here’s what people say about my events:


  • “I came across Marta’s Authentic Relating events in Edinburgh and have been hooked ever since. When I arrived I was helped to feel very at ease, I had little idea what the evening would be about! Exercises were well explained and a lot of fun. It is incredible to come away from a gathering with such a feeling of deep connection and wellbeing.” – Kas Berys
  • “I really really love Marta’s facilitation style. She speaks from the heart with feet on the ground and eyes and arms wide and welcoming. She is playful and joyful and unjudgemental, and this helps to create a space that feels safe to experiment in new ways.” – Beth Thomas
  • “These interactions gave me important feedback to re-examine and re-evaluate mental and emotional processes, like tendencies to leave behind, attributes to develop, etc. I strongly believe that lots of people will deeply benefit from these meetings, realizing the fact (sooner or later ) that every interaction works as a mirror, reflecting back what we are giving/sending out.” – Kostas Makrys
