This is my very brief introduction to Circling. Presented at a live workshop of Authentic Singles.
I have been unusually quiet on this list and so now it’s awkward to know where to start… and so (perhaps) forgive my long-windedness as I am trying to make meaning of this for myself even as I write.
Maybe I should start in January of 2018, in which it became clear I needed to find a base outside of Whitefield, NH, where I had returned from India in the spring of 2016. It had been a glorious ride living for 1 1/2 years in the nature paradise with my mom (with whom I get along really well, and hopefully was able to be of some assistance to her as well). I had written two books in that time, traveled widely by car, and Circled intensively online. I had developed a strong online network but I wanted to join (or create) an Authentic Relating (A/R) community around me, and I wanted a woman (or maybe several 🙂 ).
Anyway, it’s been a lot of mishigas since January of last year, even more than my usual. Relationships have been difficult, health has been compromised, and business development plans have been non-starters, right up until now. I was living on a modest passive income from my hosting business, which had been paying my bills ever since I left the US in 2014; but I had, essentially, lost interest in that business, and the best intentions for developing it proved to be ineffective. Especially as I was becoming more and more passionate about Circling, realizing the extraordinary power of the modality and wanting to have an impact there — which the book has had, it’s become the most popular book on Circling (within a still relatively small world-wide community, of course). I am now working on a 2nd edition of the book, incidentally, and I have a co-author. [Read more…]
