Authentic Relating: Circling, a Social Meditation (Up to 8, Get Ticket Ahead at EWB) in Seattle

  • East West Books 6407 12th Avenue Northeast Seattle, WA, 98115 United States (map)

Circling is practice of authentic relating. It’s meditative in that we pay exquisite attention – to our selves, others, and what’s happening between us.

We’ll start sitting in a circle and be present with one another, sharing what we experience now in the present moment, listening curiously, receiving others, and also sharing impact. Circling invites full body awareness, appreciation, acceptance, intimacy, openness and exploration.

Five principles of Circling are: commit to connection, own your experience, stay with sensation, trust what arises, and explore being with others in their world.

Circling is a way of being. It’s a great way to practice and grow our skills and also a great way to deeply experience the joy of being alive and connected.

Join Laureli Shimayo to expand your skillfulness with showing up authentically by experiencing the medication practice of connection – exquisitely connecting with yourself while deeply connecting with others.

We'll have one Circle between 10:45-12pm,  Arrive between 10:15-10:35pm, as we'll create the container before we begin.

Limited to 8 participants including Laureli - Get your $20 ticket ahead at to guarantee your participation.
