About Jayne

Jayne was introduced to circling by her son in 2012 and took part in the first SAS training in Amsterdam in 2014. What Jayne appreciates most about relatefulness is how it connects to the poetry of each person’s essential self and how this has expanded her appreciation of the human experience.

Jayne’s background is as an artist and she has been a painter for 20 years. This was a solitary time for her, and through her involvement in relatefulness she has experienced a shift towards showing up more directly in connection with others. She is a lover of fine-tuned awareness and silence in the practice, and actually brought the first silent sessions to online relatefulness.

Jayne has been teaching art for several years and she is now part of a cooperative called the Feral Art School which is teaching art through a collaborative and collective approach.

What are your relateful personal interests?

A particular interest of mine is the way that Relatefulness both enhances individual creativity and is itself an invitation to explore, experiment and co-create through connection with others.

Do you have any children or pets?

I have a son, Robbie Carlton. He introduced me to authentic relating and circling and set me on the path to relatefulness. Being with him on his life journey is a joy and an inspiration.
