This course develops leaders, in the widest sense of the word – empowered people taking inspiring action in their lives and in the world. It will immerse you into the wide ranging magic of Circling from the basics up to the cutting edge of the practice – Surrendered Leadership. This is a leadership sourced from our embodied clarity and an expansive letting go. It creates an amplified field and profound group flow that’s catalytic for personal transformation.

"There is a lifetime of experience and education that I couldn’t touch in just one statement. Circling and Surrendered Leadership have changed my life."

"Circling has completely transformed my life and relationships. The practice has helped me become a better friend, leader, and teacher. Being able to teach this practice with others is a real gift and passion I prize in my top 3 missions in life. I've found circling to be a great avenue to experience, heal, and transform lifelong relational patterns. I've particularly fond of Circling Europe's dedication to explore the frontiers of Circling. I cherish the feedback and deep level of meeting I've consistently experienced with Sean, John, and Jordan."

"I have participated in SAS not once but twice, and I wholeheartedly intend to take the SAS journey again in the future. The program has supported profound shifts in my capacity to take responsibility for what I would like to see manifest in my own life and in the world; in my capacity to recognize, respect, and empathize with the complexity of perspectives inherent in human relationships; and to integrate previously abstruse spiritual teachings into lived experienced."

"Take SAS if you want to communicate more clearly, deliberately, directly and intentionally."

John is one of the co-founders of Circling Europe. Together with Sean (the other co-founder) he has developed a unique flavor of Circling based on the 5 principles leading to the Surrendered Leadership form of Circling. John has helped spread the practice spread to over 25 countries in the last 8 years or so and trained 100s of leaders.

The SAS is a hero’s journey that will bring you into intimate contact with yourself, while being in the presence of others meeting themselves. Many participants go on to be great circling leaders, while others apply the depth of circling uniquely into their life and work or simply appreciate being in the practice to the depth that is possible during this training.


The 6 month SAS Circling and Surrendered Leadership Training is the start of a journey of deep personal transformation.
