Want to become a member of the

Evolving Community

and play in the

Relational Playground?


When you join you are saying “yes” to joining us over time and experiencing the most precise, impactful, transformational, reliable set of principles, skills, and processes I’ve found in over 20 years of searching.

I’ve been testing these modalities with a focus on long term sustainable change, not just the emotional high, or expanded consciousness that fades the week after a weekend event.

To become a member, join the Evolving Community, and play more regularly in the Relational Playground on Tuesday nights you will make monthly payments choosing one of three options below.

As soon as you sign up you will get access to the Membership Welcome Package.

The Membership Welcome Package includes these benefits:

1.  A Four-Part Fundamentals of Circling Video Training

This training covers the four basic skills, the four foundational principles, and the four things not to do in circles. Watching this video is required before attending an evening.

2.  DEEP DIVE Enneagram Panels Videos

This is a full set of nine Enneagram panels. Each video focuses on a particular Type and is 90-120 minutes.

3.  Enneagram Types E-Book

This 94 page ebook reveals the inner strengths, challenge areas, fears, false core beliefs, and path for transformation, for each of the nine types on the Enneagram.

4.  Pre-Recorded Circling Demo

A live circling demonstration with debrief with advanced students so you see it in action.

and last but not least, as a Relational Playground member:

5.  You Will Receive 50% OFF Our Three Day Live Events

Which will be held in Santa Cruz, CA. These events typically bring in participants from around the US and other countries.

What Happens On What Tuesday

Each Tuesday of the month will have a different theme.

First Tuesday of the month

The First Tuesday of the month is “Enneagram Growth Panels and Embodiment” with lead facilitator Ben Saltzman. Each evening we will dive into the exploration and spiritual transformation of a different Enneagram Personality Type (There are nine types in total.)

For example, on “Type Eight” night a group of 4 Enneagram Type Eights will be at the front of the room with Ben exploring themselves, revealing the inner dynamics of their type and emotionally healing. At some point all the participants in the room will all drop in and embody the type (move and speak as the type) to build understanding and compassion for the type.

Second Tuesday of the month
The second Tuesday of the month will alternate between “Shadow Light Integration” (Facilitated by Ben Saltzman) and “Influencing Energies in the Relational Field” (Facilitated by Gitanjali Hemp).
Third Tuesday of the month
The Third Tuesday of the month is “Circling and Deep Relating” skills development night. We will learn the skills in the large group then break into smaller groups of 2-8 to practice the skills and “circle” each other. Various members of the leadership team will be lead facilitators for these evenings. As soon as you register you will get a video teaching you the basic circling skills.
Fourth Tuesday of the month
The Fourth Tuesday of the month will be “Circling and Spontaneous Healing Experiments” (Facilitated by Ben Saltzman, Kerena Saltzman, and the Leadership Team.) The first half of the night we will practice circling skills in small groups, and the second half of the night we will gather as a large group and Kerena and Ben will create group experiments for spontaneous healing. (This is hard to describe, just show up and experience it!)
Fifth Tuesday of the month
The fifth Tuesday of the month may be “Spontaneous Healing Experiments” or “Grief Work.” Facilitators will vary.

How Many in the Community?

We have a limited number of spaces available as we have a limited number of facilitators for the breakout groups. We will max at 160 members, and intend that 40-70 will show up on a given night.

As more monthly members join we will be limiting the number of drop in participants to knit the community and build skill levels.

Livestream and Video

Many people don’t have access to these tools and skills in their local communities and we believe EVERYONE should have access. So we will be livestreaming and/or videoing all the big group instruction and facilitation.

When we break into small groups of 2-8 people for skills practice and circling you can choose to be on video or not.

The Relational Playground will eventually be filmed

We’re Trying to Be Inclusive

We will be offering translation into Spanish for these events. If you speak Spanish or you know other Spanish speaking people who would benefit, please send them our way!

To join, pick one of the Three Payments Options:

Option 1 is for you…

If you think “I have more than enough” and you are willing to support others to receive the skills and evolution that can be found in this community. If you choose this option you are saying “yes” to diving in and sharing your journey with a wide variety of people across the economic spectrum, from different races, sexual orientations, religions and political backgrounds. The monthly investment you are making is $250 or you can choose to drop in for $75/night.

Option 2 is for you…

If you think “I have what I need, I can pay for myself” and you are willing to pay the amount that covers your own monthly dues to participate in the community and learn the skills. The monthly investment you are making is $150 or you can choose to drop in for $40/night.

Option 3 is for you…

If you think, “I need a partial scholarship to attend these evenings” and you feel like you have something to contribute to the community, you really want to learn the skills, and get the personal transformation. The monthly investment you are making is $75 or you can choose to drop in for $20/night.

We will provide opportunities for social gatherings and longer 2 and 3 day events as the community builds in size and deepens in connection.

The buzz for these events spreads largely through word of mouth. Please tell your friends and family members (the ones you WANT to connect more deeply with!) about these Tuesday night gatherings and send them the link to this page.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Evolving Community Leadership Team

“After doing shadow work with Ben, I brought in over $165,000 in sales at my 3-day event, I asked for (and got!) double the offered advance on my new book and, for the first time ever, I’m actually saving 20% of my income each month. Best of all, I feel more open, relaxed and confident than ever before.”

Samantha Bennett

"Ben Saltzman has established himself internationally through his world renown year long program "Relational Mastery" Ben is a highly sought out individual who truly adds value to others through his extraordinary coaching methods."

Bob Proctor

​"​Change is when we learn a new skill or useful new information; transformation is when we reorganize at a deeper level, a new platform for a whole new approach to lifelong learning and growth. You'll get both with Ben Salzman. The work is immediately practical and ultimately spiritual -- new connections, new capacities, new power and freedom in living.​"​
