MEN'S CIRCLE

The men's circle is about brotherhood: the realization that every man is a brother - and human being first - who roams around in the very same field that we call life, often with similar questions, goals and challenges. What can we learn from each other? How can we tap into our shared wisdom and support each other, even as complete strangers only meeting for the duration of one single men's circle?

 

Together we create a space for each man to take his place and share his experiences; from a genuine desire to grow and inspire one another. Sometimes we work with a specific theme, but more often just with topics that come alive in the group during the circle. The circle helps you to step out of your daily routine, and to explore your views and choices in connection with others, sometimes in depth, sometimes humorously and playful. 

 

Sharing experiences and listening to others already amounts to a lot. But besides sharings we will also do meditative and physical exercises to further integrate some of the insights attained in the circle, and to connect the head to the heart and body.

"I have a background in performing arts, martial arts and systemic work. I draw from these different disciplines to bring in exercises and inspiration for the group. I find it very powerful what happens when a group of men really find the rest and space to share their experiences with one another. Time and again I'm moved by the many clear and surprising insights that come to the surface during the circles, and the sense of connection they create."

“I’m a trainer, coach and musician. I’m often present for ceremonies at De Oase (the Netherlands) where Ralph Nelissen of The Potential School invites me to assist musically. While being a witness to the transformational process of many men and women, I move closer to my own center of stillness. I've always found women to be fascinating, but my heart has also opened up to everything a man is: The son we are, the father, brother, as well as the relationship with ourselves. My driving force for the men’s circle is to honour and manifest the shared wisdom in every group of men, regardless of it’s composition or moment in time.
