Enrolment NOW OPEN for a limited time!
Access the tools to be an agent of positive change
in these pivotal transition times.
Leaders of the past have often been determined by the dominant ego, where ‘he who speaks loudest’ rules.
This dynamic creates a hierarchy where one dominates the many.
We have outgrown this old model.
To restructure society to be more unilateral and inclusive we need a new template…a circle.
Gathering in circle was the time honoured practice that ensured ancient civilisations were socially sustainable!
Now more than ever we need to revive this ancient tradition of gathering in circle…
To learn how to share power by ensuring every voice is equally heard
To practice our personal power by speaking our authentic truth
To access the support of community and create safe containers to process our experiences

5 Ways Circles Support Men
Connection. Circles offer an opportunity to connect in an authentic way on a regular basis…with ourselves and others. The more connection we have, the happier and healthier we feel, reducing addictive tendencies.
Empowered Choices. Circles ensure we take time to reflect on our choices so we can minimise drama, accelerate awareness and make empowered choices.
Confidence. When we practice speaking our truth in a safe space it strengthens our confidence to be speak up on our behalf to assert our needs and ensure our needs are met.
Better Relationships. Circle provides a framework for transparent communication which is the skill required for true intimacy and a foundation for healthy relationships.
Support. When we share deeply we create deep bonds of friendship that provide the support we need for life’s challenges.
