Alex's passion lies in being real together. He brings this passion to the connection and relationship groups he facilitates. He loves to create spaces for conscious connection, deep inner work and healing together through community. Exploring the present moment together in practices like Circling and Authentic Relating have transformed how he relates to others, and he delights in envisioning a future where relating with honesty and compassion are the norm everywhere.
Alex left his career in engineering after years of soul searching into what matters most. These days, when he's not organizing and facilitating groups, he's usually out in the forest, camping with his partner, cooking, dancing, or traveling. He’s also a certified Circling group facilitator through CircleAnywhere, and hosted a weekly men’s circle here at Tantra from November ‘21 - August ‘22.”

What is Circling?
Circling is an interpersonal meditation practice, where the only goal is to be with the present moment of what it's like to be together. We often live and relate as a "human DO-ing"… Circling invites us into relating as a "human BEi-ng". We continuously bring the focus of our interaction to the present moment, exploring what's actually here, right now. We invite in the micro-experiences of being human that often go unspoken, bringing our curiosity. If resistance arises, we practice gently leaning towards at our own pace vs. avoiding or turning away, finding new doorways and possibilities for connection to emerge.
This practice is not therapy. The focus of the practice is educational and experiential, based on relating from the present moment. All participants are viewed as free agents capable of self-reflection and autonomous choice. We follow these agreements:
Honor Self - we welcome and agree to set any personal boundaries or limitations
Honor Other - we agree to not fix, give advice, or tell any other participants how they should or should not be in the spirit of co-creative exploration
