John is one of the co-founders of Circling Europe. Prior to working in Circling, John and Sean (the other co-founder) had a successful career in elite Tennis coaching specialising in psychology and pioneering new ways to help sport be a vehicle for profound personal growth for athletes and parents of athletes.
These two were friends and lived together for a while, and because they are playful, deep and intense beings, they started to train together in different forms of relating techniques such as integral coaching, NARM and circling and became - how they themselves call it - sparring mates and started practicing what they learned which eventually lead them to develop their unique flavor of circling and the 5 principles while they began to open up and allow the Magic of the unknown Mystery to live them and speak through them as they came up with the Surrender Leadership form of Circling thus founding the Circling Europe School of Circling and helping in this way to spread the practice of circling over 20 countries in the last 6 years or so as a result.
Circling with John and being met by him is a gift for the very brave. His magic power comes from seeing, with the power of his sharp blue eyes and the wisdom of his unique intuition, deep into your very soul, your heart’s most profound and sometimes scariest desires, those places hidden even from yourself and the truth of all parts of you. With the gift of his leadership you are guaranteed to get as deep as you venture and allow yourself to go, and he will be there with you every step of the way with his gentle loving heart, good sense of humor and true compassion. But be aware that once you decide to be seen by him there is no way back from that rabbit hole because this man does not play games and his kindness and empathy are equal to his fierce heart and his passion and commitment to get to the ultimate truth and desire to help you see and integrate all parts of you so… this is why I say that John here is a gift only for the very brave.
