Heart Circle Workshop in Ashland, Oregon.

How to Create and Sustain Your Own Heart Circle with Tej Steiner

Saturday: October 13, 2018 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.



Optional follow-up workshop for those completing the Saturday session:  

A Heart Circle Experience

Sunday: October 14, 2018 1:00- 5:00


The Heart Circle model provides a powerful way to deepen communication and trust using small, ongoing sustainable circles in which members practice being present, real, connected and heart-directed with one another.

Tej Steiner is the founder of Heart Circle, author of Waking Up With Everyone Around Us, and a longtime member of the Ashland dance community. His model is being used all over the world to build energetic, creative community with people who understand the power of Circle to transform culture and consciousness. 

The Saturday workshop we will experientially cover:

·      The basic steps for starting and sustaining a Heart Circle

·      The agreements between Circle members that create a powerful Circle container

·      How Circle members can stay present with their feelings and wants rather than focusing on opinions and stories

·      How differences and conflict can be used to bring people closer together

·      How a Circle becomes all-member facilitated 

·      8 things that can harm the vitality of your Circle

·      How the Heart Circle model differs from other small group models in a revolutionary way

The (optional) Sunday workshop is for those completing the Saturday course who want to directly experience being in Heart Circle using the information and skills presented on Saturday. 

Reading or listening to Waking Up With Everyone Around Us before the workshop is highly recommended.

Experience how to start and sustain your own Heart Circle!

"If you don’t have a strong daily practice to keep you sane and centered in times like these. . . and. . . if you don’t have a small circle if friends or community for mutual support in life, you may want to rethink your game plan!  Both are essential for all of us who want to thrive and serve others on this increasingly wild and bumpy ride!" ~Tej 

"The nourishing field of connection created in a Heart Circle is Lover, Friend, Family member, all rolled into one." ~ Sharon, Ashland, OR


"Tej Steiner's work in the world is a force of nature, and the Heart Circle process an evolutionary staple." ~ Rick, Asheville, NC

A 4-week Webinar Course

In this 4-week webinar I’ll expand on what I’ve written in Waking Up with Everyone Around Us touching on some of the subtle aspects of The Five Ways of Being and Heart Circle work. There is an ‘energetic’ component to these four sessions. We’ll create a relaxing and enjoyable group field just by being in the course together. The calls will be practical, experiential and through them, I hope you’ll be inspired to experiment with creating your own two-person mini Heart Circle.

Reading the book before the course begins will make your course experience much richer. We'll be able to delve into the material deeper and avoid basic questions like “What’s a Heart Circle?” These live-video calls will be recorded if you miss a session or if you prefer to listen to them in your own time. 

Call in information will provided upon registration.

Essence of Heart Circle & The Five Ways of Being:


October 16, 23, 30, November 6

4:30 - 6:30 pm PST

An 8-Week Webinar Course

In the Fall of 2017, I will be working with anyone who has completed the 4-week, Essence of Heart Circle course, and wants to continue by creating their own mini Heart Circle. This 8-week webinar will provide ongoing, practical support in your experimentation with the Heart Circle model as you implement it anytime during the 8 weeks. Although not required, it’s best if you take this course with anyone you want to start a Heart Circle with.

Enrollment is limited in each course in order to provide you with more personal, hands-on, support. To ensure confidentiality, these calls will not be recorded.

Dates, time and details will be available to those completing the Introduction.

An Intensive 5-Week Webinar Course for Professional Therapists, Life Coaches and Circle Facilitators

I’m thrilled to offer this course. In the 30 years that I have been coaching individuals and couples, I’ve found that The Five Ways of Being offers a complete, holistic, transformational model for life coaching work. It’s purely non-directive while at the same time, offering clients a powerful, experiential framework for personal growth and heart-awakening centered around being clear, present, real, connected and heart-directed in their everyday lives.

Each of the five sessions is two hours. There will be voluntary teaming up with one other professional participant in short, 30-minute mini Heart Circles in between each session during the week.

I think this will be an amazingly intimate, interactive class! We will explore, together, how we can better live into The Five Ways of Being ourselves so that we better model presence and love as we hold space for others.

Enrollment is limited to professionals who already have an established practice and background training.

To apply for enrollment, please submit a brief e-mail summary of your current practice to:

Time: 5:30-7:30 p.m. PST

Dates: Tuesdays January 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 2018

*This course will be offered for those in non-North American time-zones upon demand. Let us know if you are interested.


I would love to work directly with you to bring Heart Circle work to those who live in your area, your extended community, or your organization.
