At Expanding Circles we host through-provoking conversations that stimulate the mind, spark ideas and expand our understanding of our lives and others. We are passionate about personal development, psychology, science, spirituality, science, success, career, entrepreneurship and social change. We sit in a circle and engage in a conversation that enables us to exchange views, ideas, experiences, knowledge and stories that challenge our thinking and beliefs. We believe that when people from different walks of life come together in the circle something magical happens and our minds and world expands.
