Just how rewarding ARE your relationships? Are they truly blowing you away? Or are they just "good" or "fine", yet you know deep down there's WAY more intimacy, play, growth, and fulfillment available?
What if you could not only experience that juiciness for yourself in a community of badass loving people, but also learn how to CREATE it in your already existing relationships?
Joy, tenderness, love, awareness, passion - these are some of the MYRIAD of human experiences we seek out and enjoy, yet very few of us actually have them CONSISTENTLY in our relationships. Even some of the most spiritually developed individuals are devoid of these experiences in their everyday lives.
If you're one of the people who loves personal and spiritual growth, yet also wants the full range of what human relationships can offer, including profound breakthroughs in awareness that often take years of meditation to reach, then you'll want to listen up.
What is Circling?
It's relational group meditative practice that involves bringing heightened attention to our present experience when communicating and relating with others. It provides a safe place to honor and understand each other while sharing honestly the impact that we have on each other. We each have certain ways of experiencing and perceiving the world, and in circling, we get curious about those in each other, while keeping attention on our own visceral experience.
What are the benefits of Circling?
Simply put, it's the best practice we've found for opening the channels of intimacy in relationship, while also helping us to become aware of our blind spots--the parts of ourselves that we don't even know exist. These blind spots could have running our lives for YEARS in the background, in ways that don't serve us, but when we get to see them for the first time, we instantly have more awareness and choice around them. And with more of that, comes more consciousness, in ourselves and the world around us.
More fundamentally though, the experience of being "seen" for who we truly, authentically are is by far, one of the most REWARDING experiences we can have as human beings, yet it's an experience most people have RARELY, if AT ALL. Circling not only gives us those experiences, but also TEACHES US how to give them to others, celebrating our friends and loved ones for the uniqueness they can't help but bring to the world.

"I not only endorse the work Sean and John are pioneering in Circling, I highly recommend experiencing a weekend with these guys, sooner the better. They will undoubtedly become grand masters in the next several years, all the more reason to come drop in to deep intimacy with them now!" Decker Cunov (founder of Circling and Authentic World, and President of The Integral Center in Boulder, CO)
“John and Sean were excellent facilitators whose skills and expertise perfectly complimented each other in how they led the workshop. During the workshop I was able to connect more authentically with people I have only known in a few hours both male & female to those I have known for a lot longer. There was such marked care and attention to the group that was displayed by them which in the end led to a magical encounter. Thank you John & Sean, I will be back!.” -Judith
