circling methodology

Our methods integrate both ancient traditions and modern approaches. As a learning organization, we respond to the rapidly changing conditions of our world with practiced tools for connection and healing.

We begin by researching the best communication tools available for growth and development. In circle, we cultivate a connected, confidential, and inclusive space. In the presence of peers, one is seen for the truth of who they are and learns to deeply empathize with others. We can see a different view, even if we do not agree.

Our faculty are highly-trained seasoned professionals. We guide each circle through a proven process of communication. Conflict is not avoided, instead used precisely and effectively to expand our own perspective. Growth, deep connection and healing are the result.

This experience was worth every penny for me. I found it deeply therapeutic, and I feel different in distinct ways that I’m proud of and excited about.

Facilitator Training & education

To be in relationship successfully takes both education and practice. In our trainings we discover new aspects of our shared humanity and uncover deep growth potentials in ourselves and others. We reflect and embrace multiple perspectives. No matter what your ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or political ideology, you are welcome here.

We have been training Circle Facilitators for decades on how to communicate with depth of connection, deal with conflict, create sacred space and accelerate mutual growth in all relationships. Circle skills can be used by anyone, anywhere.
