The Enneagram is an ancient symbol based on two principles, the Law of Three and the Law of Seven. In this class we will explore the Law of Three to understand and experience the power of bringing it into daily life. In a nutshell, being able to hold the tension of opposing forces in awareness, allows something new to be birthed
During times of great change, we need the understanding the Enneagram offers more than ever. The Narrative Tradition is built on the foundation of sharing ourselves and listening to others. Sure, we learn about the Enneagram but we also find ourselves opening our hearts and minds in extraordinary ways.
We are excited to offer a powerful integration of spirituality and psychology as we combine the practices of the enneagram and mindfulness. Studying the Enneagram, a unique map of personality types birthed from ancient spiritual traditions, leads to a deep understanding of the default settings of the psyche that bind one to a limited view of oneself and of the world. When we learn our personality tendencies well, we see that we do not have to work so hard - that, in fact, life itself is already providing what we need to be happy and fulfilled.
Whether you are new to the Enneagram or have been studying and using the Enneagram for a long time, this dynamic program will heighten and deepen your ability to relate more deeply and productively in all aspects of your life.
The study of Enneagram instinctual subtypes provides insight into the way we live our lives, the choices we make, and how we invest ourselves in our important projects and relationships. According to the Enneagram, each personality type has three variations (subtypes) depending on which of three instincts is more central to us.
The Enneagram is a holistic system which describes how personality and character structure are formed in three centers of intelligence – mind, heart, and body. The Embodied Enneagram Workshop is an opportunity to work with all three centers, combining mindfulness with a body-based (somatic) approach to healing and relationship.
What if the challenges of our Enneagram type can be used as a path into our true nature? What if they really are an invitation to awaken to our depths? This is the miraculous dance of the passions (aka, the vices) and the virtues. They are both expressions of the life force that animates us. While we tend to elevate the virtue, and disparage the passion, they are in fact partners and allies in our evolution.
