Welcome to our 11th Annual International Circling Festival!

Each year we’ve been graced with profound group experiences and personal transformations in the heart of the Dutch countryside.

The festival is a celebration and adventure via the depths of our tenderness and a remembrance of innocence and reverence.

This summer, we'll again stay with the new format of six days instead of five, from 10th - 15th August.

Here's what's on offer

As much Circling as you can handle!

Circling and Surrendered Leadership from the basics up to the big circle available during every workshop slot every day. 

Wide ranging workshops

Leading edge workshops that complement Circling such as movement, bodywork, meditation, embodiment, theory into practice, circling coaching, archetypes and much more. 

Amazing dance floors and evening entertainment

Top djs, live music, circling inspired performances, cabaret, singing, fireside, sauna and fun.

Great food and beautiful nature

Predominantly organic food cooked by our resident chef and beautiful forest and open plains to explore

Is this for you?

This festival is open to people completely new to Circling and is a homecoming for many inspired by the practice. It's a catalytic space and people experience these days as a journey that offers them profound insights as well as potential challenges. Every year many people share being deeply impacted and inspired afterwards, having experienced so much.
