Your 10 Week Journey To The Heart of What Matters Most
We want to make sure you have everything you need to make an informed decision about the next round of our 10 Week Online Course.
We've run it for several years now and continue to get fantastic feedback on it: previous participants report "breakthroughs in surrender," "explosive growth," deepening their connections and self-awareness, modeling new possibilities of integrity, and a lot of other really nice things that make us very happy to share it with you.
In addition to these powerful personal outcomes, participants come away with a clearer understanding of what Circling and Surrendered Leadership are and how the awareness and leadership these practices cultivate can improve their lives. They also love growing rich connections with people from around the world.
It's suitable for beginners but also for people wanting to explore Circling more deeply.
Yes, and it’s amazing. We’ve led over 3000 powerful Circling sessions online in the past years, with people continually surprised at the depth possible.
"catalyst for explosive growth…”
“The results I have experienced have been incredible. To be seen, nakedly as I truly am, has been the catalyst for explosive growth and I am grateful that Circling is in my life and that I have had the opportunity to truly understand how to be with others.”
“highly recommend this for anyone…”
“I highly recommend this for anyone who desires a deeper understanding of themselves, how we connect with others, and how to be with others in their experience.”
“the best value for the money that I have spent”
“the best value for the money that I have spent to deepen and develop my competency in relating. Especially useful were the sections on how to take the lessons into everyday life. The personal examples offered were illuminating and gave me a deeper feeling of connection to John, Sean and Jordan. I highly recommend this Course!”
"connect on a truly deep level...”
“I experienced on-line circling as a profound way of sharing and diving deeper into what actually lives in the now. It cannot only deepen the connection to yourself, it also gives you the wonderful possibility to connect on a truly deep level with people from all over the world!!”
"amazed at the power"
“I was amazed at the power of the guided exercises and the experiences I had, connections which I still remember clearly, and all the other participants I spoke with said the same. And the facilitators led by example. Throughout they communicated with us and with each other authentically and in the spirit of the course material, and in doing so helped everyone else to do the same”.
This course is different from other online learning because we emphasize live practice.
You likely already agree that knowledge without the chance to apply it to real-life situations isn't very useful. It's like reading the instructions on how to ride a bike.
As a result, this course focuses on giving you in the moment feedback: through the live group calls, through the one-to-one coaching session and through the chance to practice weekly with another course member. You'll see your unconscious habits as they happen and get continuous opportunities to choose new ways forward.
We provide rigorous written and video material each week to help cultivate your learning into your day to day life.
In many ways we uphold the Socratic ideal that we all already possess knowledge, but in forgetfulness, so learning is simply an “un-forgetting” of what has been there all along. You will often be surprised at how simple, powerful, and suddenly obvious—under the new light of presence—your insights will be.
This is a 10-week course, with one lesson delivered each week, comprised of text, videos and audio. You get to practice a lot, since it includes 6 live group calls, a 1-1 coaching session and a small group practice session, as well as optional weekly peer practice. There’s also an optional discussion forum. All videos and audio are downloadable & your access to the site doesn’t expire, so you can study it at your leisure.
Missing one is OK: you’ll still be able to get an immense amount of value out of the course content, coaching sessions, and home practices. Sessions are recorded but we highly recommend attending the sessions.
How much time will it take?
Developing mastery in this practice takes time, and we estimate that the bare-minimum engagement will be 15 hours over the course of our ten weeks together. For those who have more time or desire, there is a lot more opportunity to deepen and dive in as much as you would like to.
