From the website

Circling” is a new practice and way of relating that is growing all over the world. By relating in the present moment–beyond stories, expectations and predetermined ideas about who you are–circling has the capacity to reveal your true essence and cultivate deep connections. We offer workshops, coaching & advanced trainings for seekers and transformational coaches.

The Circling method is our proprietary, multi-stage relational practice and unique transformational modality. It is a dynamic group process that is part-art-form, part-skillful facilitation and part-relational yoga. It is also a unique modality that can be practised one-on-one. Although it is based on complex ideas, participating in it can be easy and fun for people at all levels of experience. The Circling Institute is committed to making the Circling practice available to individuals who want more fulfilling relationships and a deeper experience of community… AND coaches who want to facilitate radical transformation for their clients.

Description:

From Guy Sengstock‘s website:

I am someone who has no idea how the fuck to answer the question “Who am I?” Yet, I seem to be someone who has dedicated his life to radically elucidating this very question.

I am someone who is very difficult to describe. Even my closest friends who know me inside and out have a hell of a time “summing me up”.

I like this about myself. What this tells me is I am truly embodying and living my life at the level of depth that I can’t help but choose.

I am someone who is fortunate enough to realize that it really doesn’t matter who I am to myself. The real question is: “Who am I to you?”

I am someone who truly gives a shit about you. I am someone who will truly see who you are in a way that perhaps no one ever has in your entire life.

I am someone who can sit next to a stranger and have a conversation with them such that the stranger walks away living inside a completely different world.

And I am someone who pays attention in such a way that will allow you and I to see and hear those things which have always been present yet have never occurred to you.

I am someone who truly does not, nor ever has, taken life for granted. I wake up in the morning with an insatiable craving and thirst to discover the source of life’s novelty.
