Yoga Communities

The Full Circle Dialogue experience for the yoga community, Yoga Circles, is really all about bringing a sense of being into doing.  In the yoga community, some of the most common intrinsic goals of practicing yoga are to be more mindful, be more compassionate, and be more aware of the inherent connection between us all.  Once off the mat and out of the studio, and into the bustling cities we live in, it can be easy to lose sight of those things.  By sitting in a circle with fellow yogis on the same path, and engaging in authentic dialogue, one can actually practice those qualities with others.  We live in a fast paced world where we are constantly doing and interacting with others.  The Yoga Circles experience is a practice of bringing some of those “yoga-centric” qualities of being into those very interactions of doing, all while building community at the same time.

"As soon as I arrived home after the yoga conference where I had experienced Kevin’s Yoga Circles workshop, the community I live in was engaged in a talking circle. Even though I was tired from driving home and just wanted to decompress from the conference, I went, and it was a great experience. I committed myself to listen deeply and share authentically. I feel like I was able to do that and to reconnect in a way I hadn’t for some time because of experiencing the circle with Kevin and everyone else."

Retirement Communities


The Full Circle Dialogue experience for older adults and life-long learners are designed to provide engaging, thought-provoking, and lively dialogue in which all participants’ perspectives are included and respected.

Participants connect in interesting and new ways as they examine their opinions and ideas.  They frame current issues within their own life experiences, teaching each other as they continue to learn about themselves.  Using culturally and historically significant texts as a vehicle, all participants practice mindfulness, compassion, and their awareness of the inherent connection between us all.

“Kevin is a wonderful teacher and the dialogue circle is a unique program to encourage meaningful conversations that relate back to your personal experience. This is something that can benefit everyone and I wholeheartedly recommend it.”

Panel Moderation


Bringing the essence and art of dialogue to a panel discussion at your organization's next conference or event is a powerful experience for all involved.

Panel Moderation


Bringing the essence and art of dialogue to a panel discussion at your organization's next conference or event is a powerful experience for all involved.

Have you ever been to a panel discussion that was dry, inauthentic, 'overly scripted', and made you fall asleep?  Well, you’re not alone, and those very experiences were part of what inspired the Full Circle Dialogue offering for panel moderation.  Kevin Graybill, Founder and Director of Full Circle Dialogue, brings the organic and stimulating nature of dialogue to panel discussions via Socratic questioning strategies, deep listening, authenticity, humility, audience engagement, and pre-panel “container building” with panelists.

"As someone who has both watched and sat on many panels, I am well aware of the profound difference a good moderator can make.  There are several practices that make a panel great, including good researching of the panelists by the moderator, short, concise introductions given by the moderator (not the panelists), interesting and engaging questions and an ability to follow these questions wherever they might lead, and a strong ability to keep time, making sure that every panelist has equal time.  Kevin shows all of these skills, as well as a winning, warm personality that gives the panel a homey, conversational feel, while adhering to best practices.  I would definitely recommend Kevin as  moderator at any event.  

-Molly Lannon Kenny, Founder and Director, The Samarya Center

Businesses & Organizations


A sustained practice of dialogue in the workplace can result in powerful cultural shifts that renew organizations with the vitality needed to yield creative solutions for the exponentially complex issues to come in the future

Most of the top reasons that teams, departments, and organizations as a whole don’t live up to their full potential are caused by lackluster communication, or a total lack of communication.  Some of the most systemically detrimental issues caused by these communication breakdowns are the following:  Lack of trust in the workplace, scarcity of creative solutions, and an overall absence of shared vision, or feeling of belonging to something greater than oneself.  The  slower pace and nature of dialogue opens up space for more creative solutions, and also ensure that all employees are heard, understood, and valued, resulting in restored trust and a widespread sense of inclusion.  This is done through shifting attention from improving the “parts” of an organization, to improving the relationships between the parts.  

“Full Circle Dialogue helped me to really think about what was missing in my relationships with others: Communication. The guided session forced everyone to take a step back and realize that compassion and understanding for the group as a whole is far greater than any one person trying to get his or her point across.”

— Adam Tomberg, VP of Finance, American Capital Group
