Circling in Boston

Circling is a unique practice of deep connection and self­-transformation that combines meditation with relationship, and intuitive understanding with joyful play. It artfully strips away the stories and reveals the natural love and connection that exists between us. It has been used by leaders, coaches, and communities across the world to enhance relationship and reveal deeper truth.

Circling training is a powerful way to transform your life, leadership, and relationships – on every level.


Transform your life, and catalyze change in others. Integrate present-moment awareness into your mind, body, soul, and shadow to achieve unprecedented levels of depth in all major areas of your life.


Bring next level guidance to each moment.  Firm and flexible, loving and challenging, present-centered and aware: learn to lead from strength and surrender.


Join a powerful community to co-discover how to bring the aliveness of presence and connection into every interaction you have—inside and outside of the course.

Circling fosters….

  • Self-awareness: mastery over your own experience
    • Intimacy: the ability to create connection, even while in conflict.
      • Expression: how to bring your desire to the table and have impact
        • Leadership: the capacity to lead from a place of wholeness
          • Empowerment: learning how to get what you want from life
            • Understanding: how to work with groups, the power of context, and how to welcome everything
