Are you longing for an intense workshop experience to shake things up?
Do you have the sense of being too fixed in your life and wish to get free of habits and routines that have taken you over?
Or do you wish to be in a space that opens you for profound transformations?
It requires a certain adventurousness to wish to open the pandora’s box of your psyche. You may only find the courage when you recognise that the things that are not working for you in your day-to-day life keep on not working. When you’ve finally had enough of your own limitations, you’re ready for the quest into those less accessible places in your psyche to make friends with whatever has been holding you back or down or alienated from yourself.
There are all kinds of inducements for choosing to open that box: the sense that you are missing something vital that your heart and soul long for; the desire to break through the limitations and restrictions in which you feel you are living; the sheer thrill of adventuring; the yearning to know and love yourself inside out.
Maybe you feel that your upbringing and personal history have led you to play, explore and celebrate less than you really deserve? So perhaps you come to the circle knowing exactly the issues you want to bring to Alan and the group. Or you are simply curious. The great thing is that you don’t have to know at all what brings you here or what it is you need.
This intensive is especially designed give you plenty of opportunities for circle work which can be a powerful space for your journey. How does it work? Our being together with each other and with Alan creates a vibrant field of connections in which we are touched and moved by what happens in the circle. Someone expresses themself, the group interacts – and for you this triggers something – until it becomes completely clear what you came for.
It happens in the circle that Alan spontaneously creates processes tailored to this very moment, to this group, to you. And what processes they are! If you have ever experienced them you will understand the heights and depths we live through as a group. It is a profound, shared journey that leaves no one untouched.
For those who are familiar with the circle, there is no need to say any more. You can feel whether it is time for you to be part of it.
And if, to you, this all still sounds really mysterious, here is an attempt to describe what awaits you:
What does circle work look like?
Alan’s circle is a deeply personal, interactive space.
Our mutual agreement to keep being present in the circle supports and enables us to explore all that we need to explore, within ourselves and with each other. Here everything can be opened up – our desires and longings, our joys and sorrows, the burdens we’ve carried too long, the inspirations that only need our courage to be realised, the habits that just don’t serve us.
Other people’s explorations are likely to touch us in all kinds of ways. Sometimes it turns out that we are the one who can open a door for them. Or they may connect us with feelings we have been brought up to reject or fear in ourselves, or bring up unconscious stuff from our psyches. So what happens in the circle may bring us fully into our personal power, fill us with delight and at times lead us into our own vulnerability or discomfort. It is here that the healing and transforming magic happens!
How you participate is always up to you. You are allowed! To feel. To speak. To play. To be quiet. To express yourself. To be afraid. To be bold. To interact and experiment.
Until it happens, Alan does not know when and how he may work with you and the circle. Decades of experience have given him a rich repertoire of resources and he often spontaneously creates explorations and processes for people. At other times he lets the circle work its magic, not intervening in what is going on if he perceives that this serves you on a deeper level. There is no saying where the journey will go, but it most likely will be a very adventurous one. Learning to trust your experience in the circle can make it a powerful catalyst for your growth.
As always, Alan and his team will give you their whole-hearted presence in being there and making available their extraordinary ways of working with you.
The workshop will also include dance, music, meditation and space for cosy encounters.
