Black and white...

Marketing Guidelines for Circling Europe

Nov 28, 2018

Circling helps us reveal deeper motivations for our actions, giving us the freedom to choose to embrace or change what we discover. Often this shows us the timeless wisdom that "projection makes perception"—that wherever we point one finger at someone else, three fingers are pointing back at ourselves.

A classic example is when we want to "fix the discomfort" of...

Who and What is Circling for, and What is Surrendered Leadership?

Nov 13, 2018

by John Thompson

At its depths, Circling is a practice related to awakening. It’s a set of pointers, practices and reminders to deeper levels of reality, to the transcendent quality of love, to the transpersonal, to the depth of our innocence and humanness, to oceans of mystery and unknown.

Thoughts about Hierarchy

Feb 15, 2018

by Tina Svingerud

I just finished the 6-day long SAS Plus in Austin and would like to share one of the things that got clearer in me during that week.
