The Circle Work is a life changing cauldron.

Where body and psyche, visible and invisible can be animated into wholeness.

It requires stamina and vulnerability. Attention + Intention.
It pushes your edges and calls in the leader full presence of your innate nature.

It will be deep, daring, and delicious.
