'Circling’ is a facilitated group process based on in-the-moment authentic relating. It is the art of getting someone else’s world in a way that has them feel seen, known and appreciated.
A Circle starts by a group of people or a single facilitator putting their curious and open attention on the person being ‘circled’. Rather than helping, fixing or solving any particular problem, the intention is simply to connect with them and enquire into their moment-by-moment experience. The facilitator and other group members may also vulnerably express their experience as it arises.
By relating in the present moment – beyond stories, expectations and pre-determined ideas about who they are – Circling has the capacity to reveal the true essence of the person being Circled. They may also discover that who they ARE is more magnificent than any limited idea about how they think they ‘should’ be. Because of this, Circling is often deeply nourishing.
Participants often experience a deep sense of connection with each other. Practising these skills over time can also build our capacity to bring truth, authenticity and connection to all relationships.
