“What if every relationship in your life became inspiration for a new paradigm in self-realization?” ask the leaders. “Circling invites us to surrender our personal ideology and ego identity to the larger intelligence of the whole — while simultaneously embracing the fullness of our individual experience, power, and capability.
During this workshop, we’ll form a co-created space in which we call everyone to step into their highest ‘response-abilities’ and leadership. At best this becomes a symphony with everyone having their own individual role and being perfectly in synch with each other and the whole.
Imagine switching from trying to control our experiences to radically trusting the underlying processes in life. This ability to more directly relate with life — and each other — goes beyond producing more. It transforms who we are. Practicing Circling is likely to reveal a new way of being that radically trusts what happens. This means embracing yourself and others, even in moments of deep uncertainty and in states that are normally subtly shamed.
Everything we practice in Circling is intended to enhance the everyday challenges and joys of being human: parenting, friendship, love, earning money, learning, celebrating, dealing with injustice, death, betrayal and heartbreak, navigating politics, and beyond.”
What HappensCircling is spreading around the world quickly and Circling Europe are pioneers in the field. You can expect deep personal realizations that lead to significant growth, inspiring connections that set new bars of intimacy and enchanted group experiences.
By zooming in, slowing down and bringing a meditative like acceptance and awareness to what’s happening in the moment between us Circling creates an unexpected and powerful magic. This is a presence centered embodiment practice that impacts on multiple levels and at the same time is refreshingly simple and practical.
At these immersions we love exploring surrendered leadership—a paradox of self-leadership, in connection with the whole. This type of integral leadership practices making the subjective self-identity an object held in the larger awareness of awareness, as well as the greater wholeness we are a part of.
We believe that by practicing this kind of leadership, we create stronger, more creative, dynamic, and aligned individuals—and therefore a more conscious, supportive, abundant and loving whole.
