About

This 9 month leadership program is designed to transform your life.


You will practice integrating present-moment awareness into your mind, body, soul, and shadow; helping you bring an aliveness from presence and connection into every interaction you have.


You will tap into the deeper principles underlying the practice of Circling. In the course, you’ll work with experiential learning, skills training, theoretical frameworks, flow states, coaching, and community practice to achieve unprecedented levels of depth in all major areas of your life and self system.


This course is a collaboration between Circling Europe, The Integral Center, The Circling Institute, and Authentic Revolution. For the first time, you can learn from all of the world’s leading circling institutions in one program!


During this training, you will develop the capacity to:

  • bring deep awareness to every moment of your life
  • create incredible connections, in every interaction
  • facilitate transformation in yourself and others
  • bring presence based leadership into evolving the greater systems you are a part of
  • cultivate your highest potential
  • experience joy and beauty in each moment, regardless of what situation you’re in.

The Course includes 7 three day immersions, 8 individual coaching sessions, regular practice in circling and being circled, opportunities for deeper leadership through circling at labs in the Austin and worldwide community, and a custom curriculum including books, videos, articles, and interviews to ground circling’s deeper principles into your everyday life.

Philosophy

Integrative means that this course doesn’t end at the door. Our attention will always be on how you can integrate what you learn within and between the training weekends into every area of your life, for maximum benefit.


Integrative means integrating the major circling styles and teachers.


It also that we are informed by integral theory and integral consciousness, including cutting edge research on adult ego development and the way adults learn.
Circling Leadership is taking the tools of circling—present-moment awareness, perspective-taking capacity, empathy, choice around context, and more—into your life as a whole. In this course you will not only learn to lead circles; you will learn how to bring the freedom of total agency and total surrender into every moment and every interaction, empowering you as a leader with yourself and others alike.


For example, one of Jordan’s recent coaching clients was able to secure $400,000 in an investment meeting by integrating a “little girl” part of themselves that they had been previously ashamed to admit or show in public.
Integral Theory is a cutting edge way of understanding the unfolding of consciousness and getting a more inclusive and honest perspective on our present moment experience. It is based on decades of cross-cultural research in developmental psychology, philosophers from Plotinus to Sri Aurobindo, and thousands of years of meditative, mystical, and spiritual traditions.

While we most often draw from Ken Wilber’s AQAL model, we will reference a variety of other historical and current thinkers, researchers, and philosophers.

Wondering what theory has to do with circling? Try this testimonial from Jordan and Sara’s integral workshop: “After attending the [integral] workshop, we made a real breakthrough in communication and really getting each other’s worlds, on a very deep level. It was awesome and really exciting!”
Jordan is inspired by engaging with the fullness of each moment, letting it all in. This translates to a decade of meditation, of studying a self-guided spiritual text known as A Course in Miracles and ACiM teachers like Ken Wapnick, and a bevy of Integral philosophers like Ken Wilber, Rob McNamara, Suzanne Cook-Greuter, and Robert Kegan. It also means he’s inspired by playing, composing, jamming, and dancing to music, and using his body to climb rocks, run, bike and spend time in nature.
Sara comes from a background of research in intentional communities, studying what causes groups of people to succeed or fail in co-creating a life together. She is the founder of the Austin Authentic community (the “Love Juggernaut”) and has been training facilitators in Authentic practices for the past 2 years.

During the weekends, we’ll be training in the skills and abilities to bring circling presence: from deep self-awareness, to empathic insight into others, to recognizing the very framework by which you interpret reality, to leading amazing circles. We will also explore the field of group presence and what happens when we surrender to something much larger than our individualized selves.
In between weekends, we’ll continue developing through assignments, readings, coaching calls with the course leads, and groups with which you can practice your circling. You will be within a community that is totally dedicated to your personal growth, and to our mutual transformation.
