I will be starting a weekly topical circle on “Bringing Circling and A/R Practices into the world”, this Sunday 1/21 at Noon EST on Authentic World!
This is a weekly circle for A/R leaders, community-build
My context for “topical circling” is described here, but basically: a topical circle is like a regular circle but with more “developmental intent”. As such we have more tolerance for stories, coaching and advice (provided they are wanted by the circlee) but we do try and be present to the relationship space as a priority and/or if the group starts getting too content-focused
Authentic World is a hub of online Circling and A/R games, best practices, R&D and community offers (including mine). Furthermore, at $25/mth the price is already a steal (compare to the cost of therapy, except this is more fun and more effective!). And if you are new to the platform, you can get your first month for just $1:

I have recently discovered a powerful modality called Inner Relationship Focusing, which is (in my world) nothing other than applying Circling principles to the “inner family” dynamic (i.e. sub-personalities). It is helping with some persistent issues of mine which, so far, have not been improved by Circling. Read about it here.
The weekly A/R leadership circle will continue on future Sundays but probably a bit later in the day. Check the A/W community calendar for this and other exciting events.
And finally: I plan on starting a second weekly circle soon, also on Authentic World, on Work and Money. Stay tuned to this list for details.
