Circling: A Transformative Journey of Awakening and Deep Emotional Healing, imagine sitting in a small group of (5) people and expressing your deepest and most heartfelt emotions, struggles, aspirations, and sensations, where there is no judgment.
(Each event is limited to 5 participants only)
Sitting in a circle with a group of people that are:
- Solely interested in knowing what it is like to be you.
- Only focused on listening and understanding your struggles, traumas, and also your moments of insight.
Sitting in a group of people who are there to support you in delving deep inside yourself. Giving non-judgemental observations and feedback on how you express yourself and how you are seen.
The listeners give observations and feedback when you are being circled based on:
- 𝐄𝐧𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐜𝐨𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐥𝐲.
- 𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐬𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠.
Those participants sitting in the circle give you responses in a specific tone and nature, that of:
- 𝐂𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐲 & 𝐈𝐧𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬
The guidelines given on responses to the person being circled are:
- 𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 — No intention to change the person being circled.
- 𝐍𝐨 A𝐝𝐯𝐢𝐜𝐞 — No coaching is given on how another should act.
- 𝐍𝐨𝐧-D𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 — The person being circled is free to explore their inner world in any direction and depth as they desire.
We see the person being circled as being whole and complete as they are.
In circling, you realize life-negating and limiting patterns in the present moment (on your own), gaining a deeper understanding of how these patterns have tied you to past distress.
Paradoxically, by acknowledging and accepting these patterns, you can release internal psychological and physical energy. This process ultimately leads to a natural, genuine, and unrestricted flow of energy, opening up new possibilities and choices.

When you feel safe to express your deepest emotions in a safe space, you notice deeply repressed sensations and memories that you were otherwise unaware.
Through receiving soft and slow feedback from your supportive circle, you have your own realizations by making connections between past destructive behaviours and unconscious mental constructs.
You can finally see those sub-personalities you have built over the years that have been used to protect and hide your shame and hurt.
By dropping away parts that are not you and expressing your deep inner sadness, your deep inner joy will shine through.
The path of self-knowledge and understanding of who you are is a path of subtraction.
