The purpose of this site is to promote the importance of folding circles. The circle is the most experiential, comprehensive, hands-on, educational tool we have, and yet most people do not know this. Every child in school should be folding as often as they draw pictures of circles, and discuss the information that is generated in the folding. You cannot anticipate what the circle will generate from a drawing. Folding circles is accessible to any person that can fold a circle in half, regardless of age or grade level (see How To Fold section). Paper circles are inexpensive and readily available worldwide in the form of paper plates.
As a process, Wholemovement
™ is about pattern and pattern formation. In folding circles, by observing what is generated, thinking about and reflecting on those observations, using that information to explore further, we can discover and better understand the reality of the circle and the nature of what it represents.
The circle is the right angle compression of a diameter axis of spherical symmetry of which there are countless numbers of diameters of endlessly relative lengths. All individual diameter compressions express unbroken unity, order, principles, and patterns of information, reformations, and proportional relationships of interaction. Everything in the circle is in the context of everything else. There is no isolation and there are no fragmented parts. All circles folded to the same process, reveal different forms of expression depending on the perceptions and connections made by each folder about what they are doing. In working with the Wholeness of the circle, one sees only half of the surface at any one time. It is both Whole and part simultaneously.
