Circling: Relational Mindfulness and Authentic Relating

  • Hosted by The Center SF
  • San Francisco, CA -

A group comes together to have an intimate conversation. But the only thing we discuss is what’s happening between us *right now*.

Welcome to Circling! Over our 2.5 hours together, Morgan will guide you through a journey of deep presence in connection with each other. We will be noticing whatever arises within us as it relates to the others present, practice sharing our experiences in ways that take responsibility and invite others in, and learn to stay present and grow comfortable with whatever elements may come up. You will leave with new communication tools, a heightened sense of how to be with all of your states and others’ states, and feeling nourished by the depth, intimacy, and realness that’s possible with each other.

What to expect: we will be sitting in a circle the whole time. We begin going around one by one, introducing ourselves with name, present state of being, and our intention for the evening; then we’ll do a warmup exercise or game that’s designed to either help us drop in more or acquire a certain tool for presence or expression; then we’ll either do both a focus circle (we choose one person to stay curious about) and a flow circle (it’s about all of us together as a group), or we’ll just do an extra long flow session. Close it off with another brief one-by-one go around of what we’re impacted by and taking away from our evening together.

Schedule: we will close and lock the doors at 7:05, and will not allow latecomers, so as not to disturb the container we have already begun to create. Please get there a bit early so as to arrive and connect with a relaxed and ready state of mind.

Bio: Morgan Klein is a Certified Circling Facilitator, Transformational Coach and NLP practitioner for leaders, Certified Hypnotherapist, and Family & Systemic Constellations facilitator, among other hats he wears. A twenty year veteran of the healing arts, he spent his 20’s as a Rolfer and bodyworker before discovering the power to change people via the greatest tool of all: the conversation. In addition to a thriving one-on-one coaching practice, he also regularly leads Circling classes in the Bay Area, and loves using what he’s learned, both personally and professionally, to help others become more alive. His Circling style is famous for a constant sense of awe and wonder, comfort with every dynamic possible, and a belief that given the right quality of presence, people can work their way out of anything. When he isn’t working with people conversationally, he can often be found swimming in rivers or hanging out with his nine year old.
