The Narrative Enneagram - Christopher Copeland and Sandra Smith

From the Heart

Chris Copeland and Sandra Smith |Jun 27, 2018

I (Chris) sat at Well-Bred bakery in Asheville, waiting for Sandra to arrive. During the last few months of 2016, I had been listening to a handful of podcasts from various Enneagram teachers and found myself wanting more.

Deepening into Deepening Spiritual Awareness
Renée Rosario |Jul 7, 2014

We always start in a circle, no matter the class, and introduce ourselves, our types and our intentions. Who are you and why are you here?

Somatic Intelligence: What Our Bodies Know
Marion Gilbert |Dec 17, 2013

The mind has neural pathways that sort for familiar patterns from past experiences to make sense of current experiences. If we are out of touch with our bodies, unconscious of past traumas and adaptive patterning, current reality becomes a filtered experience and we are unable to perceive the environment as it is. Many of …

Reminded of Excellence
Renée Rosario |Nov 21, 2013

Thirteen years later, I’m on my way to assist Peter O’Hanrahan with the Typing Process. The class was a faint memory and I was inspired again by what an excellent class it is!  Skilled teachers and well thought out classes build from the foundation up.  This is true of the Typing Process class where content …

They provide a way to become centered, particularly when we are in stressful situations or communicating with people whom we find difficult.Breathing deeply helps us experience both our physical sensations and our emotions, while holding the breath …

The Narrative Tradition
Helen Palmer |Feb 12, 2011

The Enneagram of types is part of an oral teaching tradition. The material is best transmitted by seeing and hearing groups of people of the same type speak about their lives. Seeing and hearing a group of articulate and willing people express a similar point of view  transmits far more of the power of the system then can possibly …

So, Why the Enneagram?
David Daniels |Jul 12, 2010

The Enneagram is all about understanding ourselves and others; all about appreciating differences; all about reclaiming a separate self from which we can truly join in union with others; all about opening our hearts to ourselves and others in nonjudgment; and all about reclaiming and integrating in our higher qualities – all representing the work of transformation.
