Benefits of Circling
Greater Emotional Range
Circling consistently helps people to access more of themselves. It helps people to ‘flow’ with their emotions to become more open and to access more meaningful parts of themselves leading to a richer life.
It’s an accelerator of emotional intelligence helping people to embody and be present to a much wider range of experience in themselves and with others.
We do this through creating a space that leads to a quite profound continuous in the moment feedback, that simply has to be experienced to be fully understood. It can be rocket fuel for your development.
Get to the core of what really matters to you
While Circling can be intense and a journey into the unknown, it continuously reveals the deeper layers of what really matters.
Circling works under-the-radar skills and sensitivities that make the difference when it comes to your relationships, goals and deepest aspirations.
Facing Wicked & Global Problems
Circling tends to catalyze more than nourishing personal mastery and inspired relationships: Novel creativity and ingenious solutions to the problems we face at this stage in our history also emerge—through widening our perspectives, including more complexity, trusting uncertainty, and co-exploring systemic meta-awareness.
A New Way of Seeing (and being seen)
Circling engages a consciousness that sees the beauty and importance within every human expression yet is able to penetrate lovingly and accurately where there is a block, misunderstanding or lack of insight.
Circling gives people a visceral experience of connection, personal realisation and exciting potential that is just on another level to what they are typically used to.
Conflict has the potential to transform people rather than people transform the conflict. Conflict challenges our habituation in formulating positions we think to be correct and helps recapture complexity. Conflicts already exist within polarities that are prior to the constitution of the self.
We often think of conflict in Circling as exploring Polarity-a practice of opening into the space that holds unresolvable opposing and interdependent positions.
We see synthesis. We feel creative dynamism between polarities. We recognise how to allow polarities to dance together to allow for the fullness and richness of our humanity to be celebrated and integrated and for teams and groups to flourish.
Surprising Intimacy with strangers
Eye contact events have swept the world with articles and research showing the profound connection that can take place with strangers within just a few minutes of eye contact.
Circling utilises this and takes it a few steps further.
It gives tools for deeper communication from this place and enables the possibility to take it quite a few layers deeper into each other’s hearts and innocence.
A Particle Accelerator for human development
We’ve frequently observed Circling working in this way, basically just accelerating our aliveness and awakening through the energy generated within the circle.
Heightened states, deeper life experience, clearer perspective and collective accelerated aliveness and growth.
Build self-trust and expand beyond the self
We’re inspired to the build a kind of consciousness that knows and feels our interconnectivity. Circling has been a direct route into transpersonal experience for many people. The beauty of Circling is that there is no ‘attempt to get anywhere’, we start from what is present and yet unity and flow states of consciousness become quite common.
Connection as the Cure for addiction
There’s growing evidence and understanding around the fundamental nature of the importance of human connection and it’s link to resolving addictions. The whole paradigm of Circling is based around Connection and is incredibly nuanced in facilitating a greater connection with ourselves and each other. We’ve seen numerous addictions be transcended as people begin to experience greater degrees of connection.
Circling can provide a rich environment for healing. The depth of connection and insight can open up parts of ourselves that have gone untouched and unmet for decades. Circling creates an environment where time appears to slow down, there’s ample space and time to go into the fullness of what’s alive and real in you. Many people have found this kind of space very healing and empowering.
Getting our bodies back
It’s very common for people to be living very disengaged from their bodies and more from a ‘head space’. This limits so much our expression, our potential, our health and our well being. Circling helps ease us back into our bodies and these beautiful potentials. The image of the Centaur illustrates this potential because we also believe in a healthy integration of the mind.
Circling is a practice of authenticity. We define authenticity as a willingness to reveal the truth and being direct and open in your communication. This ted talk gives a powerful exploration of authenticity.
Getting out of your own way
This is a common experience within Circling. The sense of accessing something greater than yourself that is more powerful and beautiful than anything you could ‘try’ to make happen. This leads to a natural capacity to inspire others and an easing out of the habitual contractions that limit who you are.
