What we're about

Join the founder of Circling, Guy Sengstock, for an evening of Circling, community and authentic relating. Circling nights with Guy are an ongoing weekly event open to the public. After being offered for many years it has become a tightly-knit and deeply welcoming community. This evening is for everyone: it offers a taste of the magic of Circling for people who are new to the practice, and it offers an opportunity for old-time circlers to take a dive into the relational pool every week. It is often profound, surprising and fun! What you can expect: Be welcomed into a warm open community Learn the fundamentals of the Circling process Experience eye opening exercises that reveal deeper truths about yourself and others Have the opportunity to both be circled and to practice leading circles Hear Guy share his deep thoughts and wacky experiences Witness Guy lead a circle one time per month

The Circling Method & Authentic Relating - ONLINE NOTE: We'll meet online EVERY Thursday, until we can meet again in person.

Come play, experience & integrate practical skills to: -Create deep, intimate connections -Transform ordinary surface conversations into juicy, heart opening, enlightening explorations for personal insights & healing -Become more present & comfortable in your own skin -Uncover our “relational blind spots” where we push away the depth of connection & intimacy that’s possible -Practice listening to the essence of someone’s soul -“Get someone’s world” like a mind reader -Tap into the power of your vulnerability that has you more lovable -Be understood, appreciated & celebrated for the essence of who you are -Create more love, connection & community Join us for an evening of authentic relating, practicing profoundly unique skills like getting someone's world (deep empathy), sharing impact (honesty & vulnerability), and speaking the moment (courage, insight, shared reality, making connection more important than content). This work has been powerful and deeply nourishing for me and I'd love to share it with you. I’ve never seen a practice more adept at melting the distance between two hearts. ~ Jon Cotton What does the Circling Method look like? A group of 4-10 people sit in a circle & put their attention primarily on one person, and, with the help of a facilitator, notice what it's like being with this person moment by moment, share impact & observations, and co-explore what that person’s experience and world is like, essentially getting into deep relationship with what is most true & alive for that person. A typical evening includes introductions, an exercise to practice authentic relating & 2 rounds of circling - each approximately 30 minutes in length. The experience of “being seen” for who we authentically are is one of the most rewarding experiences we can have as human beings, and the Circling practice teaches us how to see & celebrate each person for the unique flavor they bring to the world. We don’t give advice or try to fix anyone. Rather, we welcome and stay with “what is”, so we can relax into the truth of our experience, feel supported & know we are not alone. “Circling practice is to get in a deep relationship with what is.” - Guy Sengstock, Founder of The Circling Method For deeper understanding, see 6 Things the Circling Practice Does Really Well… http://www.circlinginstitute.com/circling/what-is-circling/ REGISTRATION: Advanced registration & payment required by 6:30pm PT on day of event Register here: https://buytickets.at/thecirclinginsitute IMPORTANT: IGNORE all links on Confirmation page.
