What we're about

***Covid-19: Currently all of our events are online until further notice. Please join through our website: http://austincirclingstudio.com ***

The practice of Circling is an incredibly powerful, new and fast growing practice that raises the bar for what is possible in relationship, personal growth and self-realization. You will be surprised at its richness, depth and simplicity.

This is an opportunity to wake up to whole new relational spaces and to touch into parts of yourself that bring a deep nourishment and inspiration.

What is Circling?

“Circling” is a new way of relating and a spiritual practice that is growing all over the world. It is a dynamic group process that is a mix of art, skillful facilitation and conversational yoga. It is supported by wide ranging research in how adults learn and develop, it is transformational, and it is fun.

Some people call it “relational meditation” and others call it the best way to love the crap out of someone. Like meditation, or like enjoying a really good meal, Circling is something one must experience to fully understand.

What Actually Happens?

In Circling, the attention of a group is skillfully focused on an individual. This person gets to feel the impact of being supportively seen by others while also experiencing their honest in-the-moment feelings. The process revolves around connection, understanding and a deep authenticity between people.

Our method capitalizes on the time we have together to immerse participants in the practice of Circling. While we might start with warm up exercises—including instruction on how to feel bodily sensations, emotions, thoughts, and inquire deeper into the experience of others, most of the direction and guidance happens in real time, during the circles.

We believe this is more deeply aligned with the principles of authenticity and connection; it also allows us to participate with more presence and vulnerability, leading by example in each moment.

Circling Fundamentals Exercises

Needs a location

$5.00

Fundamentals are a time where we break down the practice of Circling into digestible pieces that we can do easy exercises on.

These exercises will usually show you a way of connecting with others that is more deeply honest, present, and interdependent.

What is Circling?
Circling is usually hard to describe, but aims to improve friendships, relationships, and all kinds of connections.
Participants tend to find themselves engrossed in communicating in ways that are less exhausting because they get to the heart of what is Real.

Fundamentals is a great place to start for the first time. Come join us!

Circling Night, Wednesday Evenings 6:15-7:15 (in-person)

Needs a location

$10.00

Register at http://www.AustinCirclingStudio.com to check availability and reserve your spot.

This weekly event — often called "lab" because we're always experimenting — is a wonderful and low commitment chance to introduce yourself or your friends to the phenomenon of Circling for the first time, as well as a good way to regularly deepen your practice and inquiry into the vivacity of each moment.

What is it:
Wednesday Circling is an experiment in emergent, self-organizing collective intelligence.

It is a meditation on what it means to be human and to be part of humanity;

a way for us to discover more inclusive and expansive ways of being together;

to align w the impulse of evolution while honoring the perfect wholeness of each unfolding now.

We gather with a willingness to step into the mystery of being truly honest and seeing the innocence and beauty of every expression in every moment.

This environment challenges our assumptions of how to be ourselves and behave with each other; (we've all felt these challenges Monday nights!) the result is a release of creative potential, and long lasting insight into the unconscious habits we've constructed to avoid the raw intimacy of each moments' full expression (and that avoidance is innocent and beautiful as well).

Our guides are five principles, championed by facilitators who model the ever-imperfect practice of letting these principles guide us, gently direct attention to seeing how every share, no matter how unskilled, can be seen as an intelligent expression of our wholeness (including their/our own individual shares as leaders), and can become more potently creative and lovable when seen that way and held with a sense of wonder and curiosity.

We believe that we can train our awareness to recognize this consciousness itself already-always becoming manifest in everything; yet the more our collective becomes aware of this already present-awareness, the more luminous it becomes.

Our curriculum is our relationships; our lessons—though their expressions are infinitely personal—are universal and therefore our doing them together accelerates our (un)learning.

Hope to see you there.
