Authentic Relating Toronto - Changing the world one connection at a time. - Circling Description
 

Circling, at it's core, is an intersubjective, meditative practice.

meaning...

 
 
Circling is an organic, in-the-moment interpersonal process that's equal parts art form, meditation, and group conversation - all designed to allow a visceral experience of connection and understanding of another person's world, celebrating who and where they are right now.

It's practicing using our genuine curiosity to better understand and become a connoisseur of another person's world though present moment awareness while breaking through the assumptions and projections we have about each other.

Different than sitting on a meditation cushion by yourself, Circling is a relational practice. And though it works exquisitely in intimate relationships of all kinds, it can be applied in ALL areas of life because it's so organic, non-analytical, effective, and fun.

Here's more about Circling, from Bryan Bayer and Decker Cunov, founders of Authentic World:

The purpose of Circling is twofold...
  1. Circling uncovers our "relational blind spots" - the places where we push away the depth of connection and intimacy that's possible, whether we're:
    • In a relationship and want to deepen with our partner...
    • Single, and looking to attract someone to explore deeper connection with...
    • Looking for deeper connection with ANYONE - family, friends, prospective clients...

  2. The experience of "Being Seen" for who we authentically are is one of the most rewarding experiences we can have as human being... and Circling teaches us exactly that - how to see and celebrate each person for the unique flavor they bring to the world.

Through this in-the-moment process, we have more choice about how we respond. The more we are aware of our blinds spots, the greater our choice in any situation. The greater our choice, the greater our degree of relational freedom.
