If you are seeking a foundation in the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition, the Enneagram Narrative Core Program is the place to begin. These courses are freestanding and open to all. The Core Program starts with Enneagram Intensive 2.0, which provides the basis for Instincts and Subtypes and Deepening Spiritual Awareness. You may begin this program without a commitment to take all three courses.
Every person has three instincts (self-preservation, one-to-one and social), but one of these tends to be more central in our daily lives and relationships. This primary instinct determines our Enneagram subtype.
The three instinctual drives include:
These energies combine with the nine personality types to create 27 variations. At the intersection of archetype and biology, the study of subtypes holds the key to understanding our path in life and our role in the human community. How do we spend our time and energy in daily life? Who are the people who are most important to us? How are we invested in home, neighborhood, politics, or religious activities? How do we express ourselves physically and emotionally? Many people have found that subtype differences can be more crucial than personality type issues in our relationships.
Through panels, presentations and small groups, we will explore the 27 instinctual subtypes, including:
If you don’t know your subtype, you will likely discover it during this core program. The format includes presentation and discussion, small groups, subtype panels in the Narrative Tradition and somatic exercises.
Prerequisite: Enneagram Intensive 2.0
Note: Ideally, Enneagram Intensive 2.0 is the best place to begin our Core Program. However, we understand that many students have prior knowledge of the Enneagram, so this course also is open by permission to intermediate and advanced Enneagram students who have studied with other teachers.
