Circle. Connect. Transform.
Connection is a skill, and it can be learned.
We use a practice called Circling to enhance self-awareness, connect effortlessly, and teach people everywhere how to get their needs met AND help others thrive in the process.
Circling is an organic, in-the-moment interpersonal process that’s equal parts art form, meditation, and group conversation
— all designed to allow a visceral experience of connection and understanding of another person’s world, celebrating who and where they are right now.
It’s practicing using our genuine curiosity to better understand and become a connoisseur of another person’s world though present moment awareness, while breaking through the assumptions and projections we have about each other.
Different than sitting on a meditation cushion by yourself, Circling is a relational practice. And though it works exquisitely in intimate relationships of all kinds, it can be applied in ALL areas of life because it’s so organic, non-analytical, effective, and fun.
Q: What exactly is the purpose of Circling?
The purpose of Circling is twofold:
1. Circling uncovers our “relational blind spots”—the places where we push away the depth of connection and intimacy that’s possible, whether we’re:
- In relationship and want to deepen with our partner…
- Single, and looking to attract someone to explore deeper connection with…
- Looking for deeper connection with ANYONE—family, friends, prospective clients…
Through this fresh, direct-experience, in-the-moment process, we have more choice about how we respond because we’re aware of our blind spots.
2. The experience of “being seen” for who we authentically are is one of the most rewarding experiences we can have as human beings, and Circling teaches us exactly that—how to see and celebrate each person for the unique flavor they bring to the world.
More about Circling
Jordan Allen and Sara Ness discuss Circling as a developmental practice
Circling has been described as “interactive intimacy”, “social intercourse”, or (my favorite), “A structured way to love the crap out of someone.”
In a circle, you’ll join a group of people to have a conversation about what’s actually happening for you, and between you, right here and now. You’ll get a visceral sense of what others feel, think, and experience around you, and develop a meditation practice for bringing your embodied self naturally out into the world.
WARNING: Side effects of Circling may include expanded self-awareness, breathtaking perspective shifts, and irrepressible joy. We are not liable for any lifelong friendships or relationships that may occur.
