Deepen connection with yourself and others
What is Circling
Circling is a relatively new practice that allows individuals to deepen connection with themselves and others. Through gentle awareness exercises you can activate and trust your experience and emotions. Circling then enables you to express them in a healthy safe space.
Circling-evolution is committed to support individuals to bring attention to the present moment.
Deeper and stronger connections are formed through trust, empathy and ownership of ones feelings to create a sense of community. This can be a beautiful opportunity to feel empowered.
Circling is not a form of therapy but many find it provides personal growth and development. We may explore feelings and thoughts, but in relation to how you feel in the present moment.
Why do we do it?
Circling not only gives you the tools to notice self-patterns but it also encourages you to express them in a healthy constructive manner. Through bringing your attention to your shaded spots in your life, you will challenge yourself to live more authentically.
By pushing out of your comfort zone you will meet new people, like minded or not. Connections will be formed with a variety of individuals giving you a new lease on life and new experiences. You will begin to see many things more clearly and will appreciate more.
Circling enables you to form deeper connections with people around you, both in your personal life and your working environment.
Absolutely everyone can benefit from circling, whether you are a hippie or a businessman there is some gold for you to be had through this practice.Many people who are seeking to challenge themselves find it particularly useful. Families and couples are benefited as relationships are deepened through voicing and owning ones feelings.Would you like to have more new connections, would you like to deepen further your current relationships? Then circling is for you.
Enrique Fernandez is a circling facilitator who works from the heart: ‘I love people and I'm genuinely curious about them’. He started to circle in 2014 and was hooked by the transformation that happened to people in front of his eyes, and by the togetherness that the practice brought to the group.
In 2015 he completed his Circling Training and later that year he co-founded Circling Evolution, he has been running regular circling events in the UK ever since. He works at the online platform Circle Anywhere as a facilitator since 2018. His passions are to organise and grow authentic communities and co-create with other leaders, and to use circling as a tool for conflict resolution and creating fertile environment for growth and connection.
Besides his work as a circling facilitator Enrique works as a veterinarian, and has a busy family life in the beautiful English countryside where he lives with his wife, three children, and a dog.
What Enrique loves about circling: ‘both leading and practicing circling is stretching my abilities and putting my patterns and blocks under the microscope’. He sees circling as a catalyst for human evolution and as an accelerator of human connections and personal transformation.
If you really knew him you'd know that he is very playful in one on one connections, and he can become quite shy in big groups.

“The human soul doesn't want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed - to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is.”

Throughout our earth journey there are so many doorways, fields of perception, layers of self to uncover and explore - Circling is a experience that can take you on a gentle journey through these all. You delve as deep as you choose to delve in a space of full support. The results are surprising, invigorating and fascinating, what is revealed is the true essence of the human spirit, given its freedom and space to roam. We are the universe, whole cosmos, exploring, learning about itself. Enrique Fernandez and all the hosts are incredible souls, gentle and nurturing, amazing guides but part of the group and journey themselves. Circling as a experience is one of pure revelation. Very excited for this upcoming event
The circling day with Enrique was a very uplifting experience which helped to tap into my longing to release a deep vulnerability inside.
I realised how much I am holding inside and how much I want to share in my life.
I was so nervous when I started the group and gradually relaxed throughout the day. Allowing myself to settle into myself!
The circling day itself was deeply moving, it really helped to connect me back to heart and gave me a space where I felt supported and heard by the people around me. It's really amazing how much courage you can gain by others holding space, to allow yourself to be seen. And likewise holding space together for another, I felt a sense of oneness and warmth.
Enrique and Greg held the space really well and were so welcoming. Even though I felt slightly uncomfortable at first, I was able to settle into it. And felt I had made some great connections by the end of the session :)
