Deeper into the Enneagram: Loosening Your Type Structure, Acton, ON, Canada
Mar 24 - 25


You know your Enneagram type and likely have experienced that this knowledge can only take you so far. It’s a challenge to change our habitual patterns. What to do? We invite you to join us as we explore how to loosen our type structures.

The Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition focuses on integrating three crucial aspects of personal development: the psychological, spiritual and somatic. We can work on each of these three elements separately.  There is much value in doing so. But, working with these three areas together creates a synergy that greatly increases the effectiveness of personal growth work. 

In this workshop, you will learn an integrated approach that will help you have more choice around your unconscious patterns and strengthen your capacity to be “present” in day-to-day life. The focus will be on combining a deeper understanding of your patterns (psychological) with awareness practices (spiritual) that enable you to meet without judgment what arises in your body (somatic).  As we do this, our type structure loosens.  It is challenging, but ever so important work. The result is healthier relationships and living more authentically.

The format of the workshop will include panel interviews in the Narrative Tradition, guided meditations, brief didactics, and body-centered practices, to answer questions such as:

  • What does your type believe you need to be to be ok?

  • What feelings do you need to avoid?

  • What do you experience when you try to change?

We look forward to being with you as we dive deeper into this sacred and profound system of transformation.
