Heart Circle

Waking up with everyone around us


We Are Awakening

For thousands of years, there have only been a handful of individuals in any given time or place that have awakened into Oneness and Love. We often refer to them as saints, sages, and teachers.

Today, something profoundly new is occurring. Instead of a handful of people awakening within any given culture, there are now millions of people awakening all at once in every part of the world.

This has not happened before!

The Emergence of Heart Circle

There are literally thousands of teachings from all parts of the world that give us ways to awaken individually. They organize around how we, as individuals, can make this leap into Love. The focus has been on my body, my emotions, my practice and my consciousness. The organizational structure is the pyramid.

An entirely new paradigm is just beginning to arise in the world today. It organizes around wakening up together. Its organizational structure is the circle.

Heart Circle, as created by Tej Steiner, is a specific new form of circle designed to facilitate the emergence of  a group field in which the intelligence, longing, empathy, dedication, commitment, and wisdom of each individual is unified with every other individual. In Heart Circle, the circle field, itself, becomes the teacher.

All about Heart Circle …


Tej Steiner


Tej Steiner is the creator of Heart Circle and author of the Heart Circle book, Waking Up With Everyone Around Us. He was a Kundalini yoga teacher and the Canadian director of The 3HO Foundation from 1971 to 1985. He went on to study circle dynamics from 1986 until 1990 and since then has been facilitating circles all over the world. His Heart Circle model evolved out of the thousands of circles he has sat in over the years. He is a social visionary and pioneer in using the ancient wisdom circle for personal and social transformation.

The Book

Waking Up With Everyone Around Us is a revolutionary work. It is instrumental in understanding and mapping how we are moving from a pyramidal masculine model of awakening to a circular feminine model.    

Tej Steiner spent forty years re-searching and writing this Heart Circle book. His research was experiential; exploring his own ongoing awakening process while facilitating thousands of Heart Circles over four decades. His writing is inspiring, clarifying, and simplifying; offering  clear direction and the practical know-how needed for all of us to start and sustain our own Heart Circle so that we can support one another  ‘waking up with everyone around us’.

Available in print, digital and audio formats. In the USA: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Audible. In Canada, the UK, Europe, Australia and elsewhere throughout the world, please visit the Amazon site for your region. (Only the print format is available from the Heart Circle website.)

The Courses & Coaching


The 3-Hour Heart Circle Experience

It may be commercially tempting to say that starting your own Heart Circle is easy. It’s not. Like creating anything of value, there is both an art and science to it. Learning how Heart Circles function effectively takes training and considerable trial and error experimentation over time.

Because it does require time and effort, it’s important to have a direct experience of what a Heart Circle is before deciding whether or not you want to learn how to create one.

Welcome to the 3-Hour Heart Circle Experience!

This is a real-time, introduction to Heart Circle that is personally facilitated by Tej. Each Experience occurs either in person or through a Zoom video conference call. The first thirty minutes are spent talking about the Heart Circle format and its basic agreements. The remaining time is spent exploring the Heart Circle process! By the end of the three hours, you will know whether Heart Circle is or isn’t a fit for you because you will have experienced for yourself the power and enjoyment of this process. Learn more …

The 8-Week Heart Circle Training

This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to create and sustain their own ongoing Heart Circle! It consists of eight weekly 2-hour sessions, using Zoom video technology so that everyone, anywhere in the world, can participate. There will be a balanced mix of experiential and theoretical sharing. It is designed for people who are just beginning their spiritual journey as well as for those with years of spiritual practice.

Tej Steiner facilitates each training. A new course begins every month with varying starting times so that it will fit into your time zone regardless of where you live.
