Patsy Rodenburg on being "present"
Broken down I think First Circle is interior, diffident and self conscious while Third is self involved and highly charged. I often times find myself in my enthusiasm imposing my Third Circle energies on others, simply waiting to get my own thoughts out instead of attending to the "now" of the conversation. I think it's important that we be first good listeners before we can become good speakers. Second Circle I believe is the space between indifference and self absorption where we let ourselves connect and appreciate the experience of interaction. Let us all try to inhabit the "presentness" of Second Circle and to continually seek out interconnectedness our relationships in the New Year.
