presence, aliveness, connection

Circling and Surrendered Leadership Weekend

Circling is a fast growing practices that guide you into a deeper experience of presence and connection. You’ll likely gain deep personal insights, feel yourself to a deeper level and see habitual ways of being you didn’t realise you were doing.

Through Circling we develop our sensitivity and empathy, build capacities to better understand our impulses and intuitions and learn to communicate our boundaries and longings more clearly.

In Circling we bring meditative acceptance and awareness to what’s happening in the moment by allowing our presence, aliveness, and truth to come into connection with another person or a group. When we slow down, focus, and reveal what’s going on between us here and now, we create space for deeper meetings with the people around us and deeper intimacy with ourselves.

The practices typically open up new realms of connection – feeling deeply seen, getting a visceral sense of connection and intimacy with others and an idea of how you got there – an authentic contact that feels nourishing. Perhaps you’ll get a taste of what matters most to you and have some experiences of synchronicity, collective intelligence or even psychedelic like experience

What does it loook like

The Experience

Circling and Surrendered Leadership are practices of being with what happens in the present moment and thus no two events look the same. You will be invited to slow down and notice what it is like to be you from moment to moment and you will be invited to speak you experience to others as you engage with the three core formats. 

Fundamental practices

Exercises in pairs or triads where we focus on the fundamental aspects of Circling such as noticing your experience, deeply listening and owning experience.


In a birthday circle one person has the focus of the group for typically between 20 and 30 minutes. It is a practice of really being with someone in their world. 

Surrendered leadership

Surrendered leadership is an advanced practice of allowing the emergence in the collective space and deeply trusting the wisdom of the collective intelligence.

Circling Europe are in many ways standing head and shoulders above the rest of the circling community. If you want advanced training, they are unearthing some of the most dynamic and impactful trainings I’ve seen.
