CIRCLING DAY BRIGHTON / THE LABORATORY OF HUMAN CONNECTION
Saturday 10th August, 12:00 to 19:00
Are you interested in deepening your current relationships and learning more about how you are when it comes to connecting to others? Then this circling day, facilitated by Enrique Fernandez, Ranjit Krishnamma and Ksenia Belash, is for you!
Circling, also referred to as interpersonal mindfulness, is a cutting-edge practice where we are invited to put our awareness and attention on what is happening in the here and now, within and between us, without an agenda or judgement. As we slow down and deepen our connection with ourselves, we start to explore what happens, internally and externally, when we come into connection with others.
Through gentle awareness exercises, you will be invited to attune to your embodied experience, including feelings, sensations and thoughts, and to explore and express what you notice within you in a warm relational space.
Circling is not a form of therapy, neither is it a spiritual practice - but it can be both, as many find it provides personal growth, healing, empowerment and transformational insights. As you practice, you are likely notice your connections with important people in your life deepening, as you learn to express yourself authentically, while cultivating trust, empathy, compassion, healthy boundaries and a sense of your inner authority.
The circling practice is underpinned by the following five principles, which we will explore in depth on the day:
1-Commitment to connection.
2-Owning your experience.
3-Trust in your embodied experience.
4-Staying with the level of sensation.
5-Being with the other in their world.

You don't need to have any experience with circling to join this workshop - just a desire to connect, an open mind and a willingness to be vulnerable.
The structure of the day may vary according to the needs of the particular group, but we are likely to do some guided embodiment and gentle movement meditations, pair and triads exercises, as well as larger circle processes. All exercises are optional and you are strongly invited to look after yourself, respecting your own needs and boundaries.
It is an experiential practice, and therefore any attempts to put it into words risk falling short. We'll be happy to answer any questions by messenger, email or Skype. Please feel free to contact us on Enrique@circling-evolution.com
