The Crimson Circle

By Colin Whitby


In 2006 Shely, one of our regular contributors, sent me a link to the Crimson Circle web site in one of her regular emailings, suggesting I go there and download their latest Shoud (this is the name they give to their meetings). There I heard Geoffrey Hoppe speaking the words of Tobias in a channelling, and it was after listening to one of the recent Teacher series Shouds that I was inspired to start this web site.

If you have not heard a channelling before then this might be a way to dip your toes in the water, just download and listen and see what you think. I find them to be of the highest integrity and vibration, spot on.

The Crimson Circle started in August 1999 when a small group of friends gathered in a tepee in rural Woodland Park, Colorado to listen to the words of Tobias coming through Geoffrey Hoppe. This was the first “lesson” delivered by Tobias, and the official beginning of the Crimson Circle.

In early 2000, the Crimson Circle started an Internet web site ( where all of the Tobias lessons are now available in print or audio versions. The web site attracts over 100,000 visitors each month from all corners of the world. Monthly meetings are held in Coal Creek Canyon, Colorado where Tobias delivers the latest information and answers audience questions. These meetings are also broadcast live on the Internet.

The purpose of the Crimson Circle is to provide a consciousness-gathering place for humans who are going through a spiritual awakening process. These same people may then choose to serve as guides and teachers to other humans as they begin their awakening. According to Tobias, the most powerful and credible guide is not a celestial angel, but rather a human angel who has already walked the path.

Why not go there and sample one of the Shouds, you may find you are one of the Shaumbra yourself, I did!


Shaumbra is the name Tobias uses for the group of humans going through the awakening process. Tobias claims the term originated during the times of Yeshua ben Joseph (Jesus), when people – many of them Essenes – would gather for secret spiritual meetings. Loosely translated in old Hebrew, the first portion of the word Shaumbra is pronounced “shau-home.” “Shau-home” means home or family. The second portion of the term is “ba-rah,” which means journey and mission. When these terms are put together, it is “shau-home-ba-rah” which means family that is on a journey and experiencing together. Tobias says that in the biblical times, a “shaumbra” was also a scarf or shawl that was worn by either male or female. It was a distinctive crimson colour that let the others know it was time to meet. Pronounced “Shom-bra.”
