Svetlana Lilova discovered Authentic Relating in late 2016 and soon became awed by its power to cultivate authenticity, freedom, and genuine connection. In 2018 she began to more intentionally pursue AR and circling, and has since facilitated and hosted events with AR Toronto, trained and co-facilitated with ART International (Level 1) and Realness Project, and is currently facilitating on the Connection Institute Platform.

Svetlana is passionate about art and all things human, including fostering, for herself and others, awareness, aliveness, creativity, space of self, an inner life, surrender, and vulnerability – the currency of connection.

Svetlana is also a writer, a Registered Psychotherapist in private practice, and runs private groups in Toronto, Canada.
