Jonas Johnsson & Alexander Ingster Hofgren
“How can we be fully human with each other and really thrive?” - is the question that drives me. Usually we feel we have to hide many parts of ourselves to be able to be with others. Across the spectrum of human experience there are many aspects we often believe aren’t welcomed. Anger, hate, shame, proudness, etc. Even love can be challenging to let in when we are with others. With circling I want to create the widest and most welcoming room for all that is human. And when we see and realize how much of ourselves that can be welcomed in relating we relax and start to really thrive with others.
Jonas is leading the Circling sessions with a backpack of thousands of hours in meditation practice as well as education in tantra and bodywork. He has been certified and leading Circling for 7 years. Jonas is also a social worker with further education in communication and conflict resolution. Alongside leading courses in Circling he is working with leadership training and organizational development.
Alexander Ingster Hofgren
I'm a curious and heart centered Circling trainer. In circling we are with what is and communicate from the present. I see it as a radical practice where we are transforming the culture and norms of society. We do this by creating a container where we can have strong connections and become alive just by being the way we are. Without needing to develop or change anything about ourselves.
I have a background as an Economist & Business coach, Zen practitioner, circling trainer and have now started doing couples coaching. Along with several trainings I have received the 1 year NVC training and 2 years Psychosynthesis training has very much shaped me.
Circling – Welcoming the full human experience.
Circling could be described as a relational or social meditation. In this session we use the basics of circling and combine it with awareness practices such as subtle noting. Together we swim in the lake of presence inviting words to describe and deepen the experience. Connecting both with the perceptible subjective experience of being a person and the imperceptible universal experience of being emptiness & wholeness.
Going to this workshop we recommend that you either have done circling before or have experience verbalizing the sense of awareness.
THE BODY TEMPLE (Jonas Johnsson with Amanda Stjernström)
In this temple we aim to open our bodies to unite with divinity. Exploring different polarities to awaken more energy in the body to catalyst to something bigger. Trusting intuition to guide us to find pathways to open up our own body in harmony with others. We are playing with different energies and different polarities in a fun and devoted way.
