Sean Wilkinson

Sean has been drawn to explore the depth and riches of life. He is also innately drawn and committed to learning, developing, innovating and reaching for higher levels of excellence and experience.

This has led him on a rich hero’s quest in which he was introduced to the profound transmission of Circling and the practices it teaches. Through intensive practice Sean co-created 'Surrendered Leadership', which innovatively incorporates many of the principles from Circling into an intuitive, collective, emergent paradigm of human connection. Sean immersed himself in a deep, committed practice for many years in obscurity and emerged with a mastery of these powerful psycho-technologies. This propelled him to co-found a successful Circling and Surrendered Leadership International organization, Circling Europe, for twelve years and counting.

Circling Europe has pioneered in bringing these interpersonal leadership methodologies to the world. This has largely been through innovative trainings and courses that have entered over 30 countries and have an extensive online presence. We have led within and created international conferences, worked in businesses, social organizations and was featured in multiple media forums, including Forbes magazine. They are also a partner in the newly created International Circling Federation.

Sean has established himself as one of the world leading Circling Leaders and teaches many pioneering topics such as;
Interpersonal presence and mastery
Developmental trauma and attachment dynamics
States of consciousness
Human developmental science
Collective Intelligence, trauma and triumph
Archetypal knowing and Methodology
Integral Theory and Spirituality

In support of leading Circling Sean has; a Postgraduate Psychotherapy certificate, A Neuroaffective Relational Model certificate in Developmental Trauma Therapy, plus an Advanced Practitioner Award working with more serious complex trauma cases and an Integral Coaching certificate.

Academically, he did a bachelors in Sports Science, a Masters in Critical Philosophy and International Relations at Exeter University. Since then he has published three research papers on our work in Circling, one book chapter in 'Cohering An Integral We Space’, multiple blog posts, plus an extensive media output including Youtube channel, Podcast and Documentary.
