  • “catalyst for explosive growth…”

    “The results I have experienced have been incredible. To be seen, nakedly as I truly am, has been the catalyst for explosive growth and I am grateful that circling is in my life and that I have had the opportunity to truly understand how to be with others.”
    – Robert, USA

  • “wonderful possibility…”

    “I experienced on-line circling as a profound way of sharing and diving deeper into what actually lives in the now. It cannot only deepen the connection to yourself, it also gives you the wonderful possibility to connect on a truly deep level with people from all over the world!!”
    – Sacha, Netherlands

  • “amazed at the power…”

    “I was amazed at the power of the guided exercises and the experiences I had, connections which I still remember clearly, and all the other participants I spoke with said the same. And the facilitators led by example. Throughout they communicated with us and with each other authentically and in the spirit of the coursematerial, and in doing so helped everyone else to do the same”
    – John, UK

  • “breakthrough…”

    “The online circling course helped me delve deeper into the 5 principles of circling which has been such a welcome addition to my circling experience. I had a particularly poignant breakthrough in my felt sense experience of surrendered leadership which was what my hope was in taking the course. The group meetings led by Marysia and the team were wonderful too.”
    – Rossi, USA

Next Level Education

We find that the most integrated and accelerated learning happens with a healthy balance of experience and understanding; of challenge and support; of leaning into the discomfort of not-knowing and connecting to the native clarity that already lives inside of us; of us sharing our insights while inviting you to draw your owning meaning from what you discover.

In this spirit, we’ve designed this Course to bring a healthy mix of continuously immersing you into the practice of Circling with support, providing mental clarity through distinctions and practices that you can do on your own.

A Note on Marketing

We strongly want to avoid falling into the internet marketing subculture that has worked out the best ways to sell products. While also learning from the wisdom of this form of intelligence we want to be more direct and humble about our offering. We know this in itself is marketing and will endeavour to be fully honest with you.

“highly recommend this for anyone…”

“Noticing that as I begin to write, a lot of admiration and appreciation for this course is arising. In saying that, it is because of Circling and this course’s deeper dive into it that I am able to even notice it and express it with confidence in my own experience. I came in desiring a deeper understanding on the practice, the contents and makeup that set the circling container and allow the practice to run so gracefully, and to dive in deeper to connection with myself whist being able to apply the tools and be in connection with others. I highly recommend this for anyone who desires a deeper understanding of themselves, how we connect with others, and how to be with others in their experience.”
– Libby, UK

“The Circling Europe Academy Training is the best value for the money that I have spent to deepen and develop my competency in Circling. I downloaded every single item and saved it so I can refer to it again and again. The exercises offered for each of the principles are ones I want to practice over and over. Especially useful were the sections on how to take the Circling Guidelines into everyday life. Since I learn best by example, I found the tables contrasting the different ways of being quite clear and useful in guiding me to discover distinctions I might not have otherwise noticed. The personal examples offered were both illuminating and, because they were personal, gave me a deeper feeling of connection to John, Sean and Jordan. I highly recommend this Course to every participant of Circle Anywhere.”
– Shirley, Austin Texas, USA

Common Questions

Yes, we created this for you.

We’re very excited by the kinds of breakthroughs we see in people who have never experienced “Circling” before.

If you’ve done much Circling before, you’ll know that every single instance is unique and unpredictable. The essential ingredients this course adds are guided structures of instruction—

  1. in the specific the form of our curriculum, videos, group practice sessions, coaching sessions, and live talks.
  2. In the overall approach of how these elements fit together
  3. A continuous dance between experiential and theoretical learning
  4. A learning community going through the journey together with regular meetings

The curriculum is an extensive inquiry into the 5 principles of Circling as well as other key aspects of the practice. There’s an opportunity to really explore the foundations of the practice, both with your cognitive understanding as well as diving into experience.

Yes, and it’s amazing.

We’ve lead over 1000 Circling sessions online in the past year, with hundreds of people and groups as large as 30 people at a time. Many people prefer the online setting.

Still skeptical? Check out some of these testimonial videos about online Circling from some of our participants.

The best way to learn on this course to be continuously willing to be surprised. We intend to show you things that you might never have considered as well as to deconstruct or “unlearn” habits that served you in the past but are no longer helpful.

In many ways we uphold the Socratic ideal that we all already possess knowledge, but in forgetfulness, such that all learning is simply an “un-forgetting” of what has been there all along. You will often be surprised at how simple, powerful, and suddenly obvious—under the new light of presence—your insights will be.

We’ve designed the format of this un-forgetting to touch into a variety of learning methods: every week you’ll get access to learning materials in the form of written content and video, and at least one live practice opportunity to apply your lessons in real-time and get critical in-the-moment feedback.

Developing mastery in this practice takes time, and we estimate that the bare-minimum engagement will be 15 hours over the course of our ten weeks together.

Developing insight about ourselves and our connections can take time. And the nourishment, challenge and fulfillment of deep connection are very motivating for many people. So our experience is, that once people have time and space to practice and connect in this way—they want to do a lot of it!

For those who have more time or desire, there is a lot more opportunity to deepen and dive in as much as you would like to.

Here’s a rough breakdown of the time investment for the course:

  • 6 hours: In online practice sessions with the course leaders exploring the fundamentals of powerful presence-centered communication and self-knowledge.
  • 2 hours: personalized coaching and one-on-one instruction
  • 1.5 hours: One live dharma talk led by one of the heads of Circling Europe that lasts about 90 minutes.
  • 2 hours Once a week: Time to read the content and reflect on how these aspects are showing up in your life and in your Circling practice (details given in the course).
  • Daily or weekly:
    • Once you have access to Circle Anywhere, you can attend any of the scheduled sessions (3-5 a day).
    • Time spent reading and writing posts and comments on reflection threads in our private Facebook group.
    • In the Facebook group you’ll also be able to organise sessions with practice partners from around the world to explore the foundational practices or Circle each other. You also have the option of being paired up with a buddy each week to practice your Circling skills together. This is not a requirement, but can be a great way to apply what you are learning and also to connect deeply with people from all over the world..
Facebook is the forum where we’ll have space to share in between group calls. We’ll also be exploring how the practices and topics are impacting on and reflected in our daily lives, our relationships and way of being in the world. It’s also a great place to make connections, organise practice sessions and just consistently experience a community of people on a similar journey to you.

However, there is no need to use this forum. You’ll also have access to Circle Anywhere where you will be in contact with Circlers from all over the world, and all the details and content will be sent out by email.

You’ll still be able to get an immense amount of value out of the course content, coaching sessions, home practices, and CircleAnywhere access; nevertheless we encourage you to wait and sign up for the next cohort if you know you’ll miss more than 1 of the 4 live group sessions.
The course lasts for 10 weeks, with one lesson delivered each week, and with 4 live group calls (3 live group Circles and one dharma session).

Call links are available in the online course site. Invitations to the calls will also be sent out via email and posted on the Facebook group.

The dharma sessions often morph in and out of practice sessions so these are best attended live.

All videos are downloadable and your access to the site is indefinite, so you have this material with you forever and you can study it at your leisure.
