Circling & Integral Altitudes: Seeing + Being the beauty, developmental pulls, allergies, addictions, and skillful ways of working within the full spectrum of human development 

This session is intended to inspire participants to feel the inside of the universe with more nuance & appreciation; to feel the developmental contours within our own Being as we engage these distinctions. I also hope to:

● Allow us to embrace more of ourselves & have a wider developmental range
● Allow for more discernment of allergies & addictions while still embracing
the beauty of the deep structure (throw out the bathwater but not the baby)
● Evolve our community to be more deeply intimate with All That Is
● Show off my (and our) philosophical prowess
● Inspire us to care more about integral thinking by seeing how it can be used
● Stimulate meaningful thought and discussion

Whenever I’m making a bunch of abstractions, I also look for ways to operationalize them. How does this knowledge actually help us? What do we do when we’re faced with someone who seems stuck in a particular perspective (which is always the case for all of us?)—or if that is us?!


Circling and Surrendered Leadership

This session is for you if you are inspired by the idea of 5th order consciousness, and if you want to tear down the idea of a superior consciousness that can be known by clever people.

Come deepen your connection to the mystery and the known;
step into the place you yearn to lead from while embracing the silent wisdom of what you don’t like about yourself;
play in in new fields as awareness navigating multidimensional insights and with trust seeing them agonizingly slip away;
let being allude you while it whispers teasingly that it is here all along;
listen as paradoxes and complexes dance like twins not different and not the same;
be the archetypes and smile while shaking as they gift you the seeing of your innocent delusions.

Come if you want to become more grounded and inspired as a leader and get ready to together focus more sincerely and fiercely on where we see what gets in the way. Let us all dare to feel the needs we unknowingly betray and then embody the power we tried to hide to stay safe.

Most of all let’s play our tune in a majestic, crazy symphony of our collective simple greatness.


Circling: The growth of an International practice movement grounded in Integral Philosophy.

I am going to tell some cool stories about the growth of Circling and make some bold claims about it’s power and beauty 🙂

We’ll share how Circling and Surrendered Leadership have taken us on an amazing journey of crazy trust and high energy that can provide some exciting stimulus and inspiration for the Integral community. The philosophy holds ‘Connection’ at its centre—in the moment and paradigmatically as it continuously evolves to incorporate the wisdom of many modalities. The practice can be seen as a form of integral embodiment in the moment and in relationship. It has grown rapidly around the world in recent years and is leading to profound growth for many. It’s grounded in Integral philosophy and is inspiring many people to learn about Integral Theory yet Integral theory is not formally part of the practice.
