Welcome & Terms of Service

Our practices involve looking at and being intimate with the structures of one’s personal reality, including how we make sense of experience, individually and collectively. Carrying over assumptions from other practices can lead to misunderstandings. Read over the following statements to determine whether or not our practice will be a good fit for you.

Self-Responsibility
We see you as a free agent capable of honest self-assessment and responsible choice. This is an invitation to take responsibility for yourself and your experience, including a willingness to set and maintain appropriate boundaries. By attending our events you take responsibility for your own safety and comfort, choosing to leave the practice or participate in any given moment. 

Not Psychotherapy
We do not follow a therapeutic model of diagnosis and treatment. Our method is educational. Our emphasis is relating. Our facilitators and coaches are guides. Our practices are practices of connection and meditation whose aim is to reveal more presence. We do not prescribe choices or actions. We are not psychotherapists; we do not see you as being in a therapeutic relationship with our facilitators. Participants are welcome to speak and explore developmental intentions such as “getting somewhere,” growing, and evolving, but we do not presume these are the drivers of experience. We work in the present moment, assuming wholeness moving to greater wholeness. 

The Expectations of Leadership
Our facilitators act in service of better relating through bringing more presence to what’s happening in the here and now. This may not follow typical expectations of a “group leader,” such as telling people the “right way” to act or making sure everyone gets along. We include the internal experiences of the leaders as part of the process. We invite you to listen to your own inner direction for leadership, and consider others’ responses as feedback to you in the context of the moment.

Is this Right for You?
Our workshops can be intense. We explore the unknown, the volatile, the ambiguous, as well as welcome emotions many deem as “negative” or “inappropriate” such as feelings of inadequacy, anger, sexuality, and joy. We often explore multiple sides of seeming opposites at once, and believe this can reveal an underlying unity of the immediacy of experience. We see bringing awareness to intense feelings as distinct from acting upon these feelings—we may ask you to pause or leave if we determine certain expressions risk leaving the practice of relational presence.

If the above description of our workshops sounds potentially overwhelming or destabilizing for you, if you have mental illness or significant emotional challenges that you feel may be exacerbated by this type of transformational environment, or if you are not sure that you can be self-directed in taking care of your needs during the event, then we advise you not to enroll. Finally, you must be at least 18 years old to attend.

By participating you acknowledge that you have read and agree to abide by these Terms of Service.

Level Up ⬆️ Destination: Italy May 19-22, 2022

Italian country side + ever more whole expression of love-evolution-service-leadership. 

This Level Up ⬆️ DESTINATION weekend in beautiful countryside outside of Genoa, Italy (here's the vibe) offers you the chance to get into the life-transforming practice in a place of sheer beauty and tranquility. Combine vacation with transformation of your so-called self, and perhaps more importantly, your leadership-in-service to love/truth: We reserve special trainings for these weekends that are not available at any of our other events. Eg: 

  • What specific ways of being, thinking, inquiry and listening can we practice to become the kind of group leaders that inspire people and make people want to show up, face their demons, and step into their higher selves?
  • How do you keep things from going off the rails? 
  • What do you do when a Circle feels boring, flat, or weak—how can you ‘go deeper’ without betraying the commitment to simply be with what is, including being with the being with? 
  • How do you Circle someone’s awareness? Can you ‘bring someone’ into an altered state of consciousness in healthy ways?
  • What are the pitfalls and potentials of bringing in and working with cultural taboos like sexuality in Circling?

These questions are not only answerable (though usually not in the way our control-and-categorize self-protection-construct wants them to be), we can show you ways to practice them—and more often than not, how to clear out what’s in the way of you finding out that you don’t need us to give you the answer.
