7 Things Circling Gets Wrong

The 7 (ish) things

  1. Group Health
  2. The Circling Trance
  3. The Eye Contact Imperative
  4. Staying on Your Map
  5. Spectator Therapy
  6. Agency-Centric
  7. Unconscious Power Dynamics
  8. Fascism

Recorded at the Relational Leadership Summit 2016, at the Boulder Integral Center.

It's based on years of circling experience, and the contrast between what I learned in the Circling world and certain other modalities/schools (Specifically NLP Marin, Matrix Leadership, and Luminous Awareness Institute)

One thing I want to note; in the talk I use the word fascism in a slightly hyperbolic, maybe  facetious way. It's bizarre to think that in just a year so much has changed that actual fascism is now a legitimate concern. If I were giving this talk today, I may or may not have used that term, and if I did, I certainly would have held it a little differently.

I hope you enjoy! And please reach out and let me know your thoughts.
