Every 8-Week Heart Circle Experience consists of eight weekly 2-hour live zoom-sessions with Tej Steiner. There is a 30 minute Q&A at the end of session.
All sessions will be recorded. You get access to the Zoom recordings of all weekly 2-hour online sessions.
You are invited to do an additional 30-60 minute online session each week with one other course member that you choose. This is optional.
We will use Tej Steiners's Waking Up with Everyone Around Us as course text book. You are encouraged to order the book.
A regular personal journaling practice is recommended.
You will be invited to become part of the Heart Circle Network community, where you can exchange experiences and practice with others.
There will be a balanced mix of experiential and theoretical learning.
Each session is designed to move at a pace that’s comfortable and enjoyable for everyone in the course. Input, questions and feedback are welcome at any time.

"I have been doing heart circles with Tej for the last five years. I could not possible say enough about how grateful I am, and all the ways this practice has enriched my life and those around me. I feel it is the foundation to healthy relations, whether it is with families, friends, organizations, marriages or most importantly with yourself. It is a new set point into our evolution by learning how to embody who we truly are, giving it all permission to be and to be loved." — Acacia, Ashland, OR
