Commitment to Connection

Sep 13, 2016

An invitation to stay in connection with whatever is arising between you and others. This includes revealing yourselves and being open to the impacts from—and on—others. This does not mean any forced sense of having to be open or vulnerable; it does mean we inquire deeply into the truth of what is here instead of habitually reacting or avoiding.

Meditation and Circling

Mar 21, 2013

The most outstanding feature of Circling is the way the wisdom and understanding from the individual practice of meditation has been brought into an interpersonal dynamic to be shared between people. Although there are many different forms of meditation there can be said to be an underlying purpose to the practice. This could be described as a way of bringing your attention inward to allow more...
