The Circling® Institute runs workshops, coaching & advanced trainings for individuals, organizations and facilitators.
Give your relationships the gift of:
Join the founder of The Original Circling® Approach – Guy Sengstock, Jon Cotton and/or guest facilitators, for an evening of Circling®, community and authentic relating.
Circling® practice nights are an ongoing weekly event open to the public.
After being offered for many years, it has become a tightly-knit and deeply welcoming community.
This evening is for everyone. It offers a taste of the magic of The Original Circling® Approach for people who are new to the practice, and it offers an opportunity for old-time Circlers to take a dive into the relational pool every week. It is often profound, surprising and fun!
This consciousness-shifting workshop is for you if you want more aliveness and connection in every relationship in your life and to create a bigger impact in the world — simply by being more authentically yourself.
Our flagship program, this comprehensive education takes place over 8 weekends (2 prerequisites + 6 core modules) within the course of one year.
This is part skills work, part personal growth work. Participants learn the philosophy, skills, process, etc behind our original 7-stage model of The Original Circling® Approach while getting ample opportunity to both lead Circles, and receive Circles.
Participants leave this program with the skills & confidence necessary to both lead Circles in the traditional sense, and to LIVE the essence of the Circling® approach in their communication & relating.
The “Level 2” to our flagship program, in this program individuals deepen their Circling® skills, learn how to coach/teach others who are learning The Original Circling® Approach, learn how to lead Authentic Relating Games, how to design and host their own events, how to handle feedback & questions from participants, etc.
What The Original Circling® Approach Makes Possible For Students and Practitioners
As a professional leadership and team development coach I’ve spent the past few decades as a passionate student (and teacher) of transformational work. After attending just one Circling® event I knew there was something uniquely special about the methods and skills that were being practiced. It was a natural choice to join in the Art of Circling® training.
I have always been drawn to relationships and connection with others. For the majority of my adult life, my interactions focused on soothing and fixing and working through a problem. I began to be dissatisfied with this approach when a friend introduced me to Circling®. What I discovered changed my life.
“I’ve done countless courses on relationships and communication over the years but the Circling® practice stands out as being unique. I gained some powerful insights on a personal level and am now expanding my repertoire of skills for deepening all my relationships significantly.
