Learn about the power of “Circling,” a new practice and way of relating that is growing all over the world. By relating in the present moment – beyond stories, expectations and predetermined ideas about who you are – Circling has the capacity to reveal your unique gifts, set a new precedent for what is possible in authentic relationships, and generate radical transformation, personal growth and mindfulness. This interview gets especially juicy at the end, when Circling’s Founder, Guy Sengstock, shares with us how we can reframe how we listen to our family members and face our fears around intimacy.

 

Guy Sengstock is the founder and creator of the modality of Circling. He has been facilitating transformation for individuals, groups and corporations internationally for more than 20 years. He has a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and is the co-founder of The Arête Center for Excellence and the Bay Area Men’s Circle and the Circling Institute. He is an artist, philosopher, poet, body-worker, and visionary.

Discover the joy of daily practices that ground and open the heart with world-renowned yoga teacher, Janet Stone. Learn simple mantras you can use throughout your day, the history behind Hindu deities like Durga and Vishnu, and how to invoke the goddess Lakshmi. Janet shares with us how we can move from a place of lack and wanting more to a practice of enoughness. Sprinkled throughout are many personal tips from Janet’s life as a yoga teacher, business-owner, and mom.

 

Janet Stone’s studentship began at 17 under the meditation teachings of Prem Rawat. His reverence for simplicity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life live on in her practice and teaching today. In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Janet blends the alchemy of her own practice with decades of studentship. She aspires not to teach but to allow the practice to emanate from her, letting awareness blend with movement and breath. Based in Bali and San Francisco, she leads immersions, retreats, workshops and more.
