Discover a better way of relating.

Build a more honest, compassionate, and embodied way of relating in the areas of your life that matter most—family, health, wealth, spirituality and life direction.

Through the Surrendered Leadership and Circling practices, we have seen people like you become more loving, grateful, connected, and present. We've also seen people overcome decades-old barriers and habitually destructive ways of operating in the world.

This is not always an easy process. It will challenge you to take more responsibility for your experience and to honor your limitations, so it is not a fit for everyone.

We imagine you have questions...

If you're new to Circling and Surrendered Leadership, you probably have a lot of questions about what it is, what it looks like, and especially what you might get out of it.
You might wonder about the philosophy informing our work, what we value, or who we are as a team. Or you might just want to go straight to our events calendar to find out what's happening.

(We are talking about transformational communication and relational mysticism. Meaning, this practice will take you to a new level of wholeness, or developmental capacity, and reliably induces altered states of flow and wonder. This evolves your capacity to collaborate with complexity and uncertainty, to trust your gut and to say no. However, we don’t want to get too technical with you just yet—it’s just the front page of our website!)

Why do others love what we do?

"Excellent and terrific work… highly needed in these times."

Ken Wilber
The world’s most widely translated philosopher

"I could attempt to describe “how” these guys do this, however, all attempts could never explain the miracles they pull off. All I can say is if you spend any time with them, you’ll come out of that relational event living in an entirely different world. These guys simply LIVE the EMBODIMENT of what you’re about to experience!"

Guy Sengstock
Co-Founder of Circling, The Circling Institute and Pioneering Philosopher

"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."

Decker Cunov
Co-Founder of Circling, Authentic World and President of the Integral Center

"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."

Rob McNamara
Teaching Fellow Harvard Graduate School of Education, President Performance Integral, inc., Founding Partner DELTA Developmental, LLC

"The Circling Europe team are doing truly pioneering work in leadership development, skilfully working with conflict, and getting to the heart of intimacy. It is wonderful to lead with them—I haven’t found anything this deep outside of psychodrama in all my decades of teaching. I give it my highest recommendation."

Eduardo Verdu
President of the Nordic Board of Examiners, Co-President of The Federation of European Psychodrama Training Organisations, Vice-Chairman of the Psychodrama Association for Europe

Upcoming Events

Our events invite continuous in-the-moment feedback, helping us examine our foundational assumptions about living and come into a deeper alignment with the truth.

In person, we host public events daily in Austin, Texas, and biweekly in Amsterdam, and Dallas. We also host weekend retreats all over the world. We have six month transformational leadership courses, a forthcoming two-year continuing development course, and ongoing culture change projects with organizations and networks. Check our events calendar to see what might be right for you. 

How can you find out more?

We provide several options for those who want to dig in deeper. You'll find a variety of resources including videos, articles, and mini-courses to get started. Everything we do is pointing towards a more present, connected, and alive way of living. And there’s a lot more to come as we’re still at the beginning of a rapidly growing global movement.
