Work with circles
What is meant is working with developmental, natural psychological or intrinsic orientation models, which – like the so-called life wheels of different traditions – are cyclical and serve as diagnostic tools for a deeper understanding of the world and ourselves.
The cyclical course of the models or metaphors and the practice derived from them trace the natural movements that take place in all kinds of development processes. As the circle always involuntarily points to its center as a symbol, this is included in these models and metaphors. This makes it possible to speak sensibly of balance and depth of process and also how the opposing qualities in the circle relate to each other.
This process process, which is only thought of as linear, opens up a new dimension of holistic process understanding, sharpens the view of a holistic psychology of humans, in the context of its natural interweaving with a constantly changing world. It means working with those circles that will be of fundamental importance for process analysis, process planning and shaping a sustainable future.
Examples would be The Four Shields of Human Nature according to Foster and Little, the Circle of Courage according to Brokenleg and Brendtro and the Medicine Wheel according to Sun Bear and Wabun. However, it also means models and metaphors such as the Campbell monomyth that can be placed on such bikes.
