Wednesdays, March-May (3/1, 4/5, 5/3, 5/24)
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. How often do we want to change a pattern in our type structure, only to meet resistance and fight with ourselves? What about when we disagree with another and believe we need to get to the “right” answer – ours? What if, instead, we viewed inner resistance or challenges with another as part of a new arising…the birthing of which was dependent on the resistance or the opposition itself?
The three forces of creation, according to Gurdjieef, are affirming, denying and reconciling. Here’s the kicker, the “denying” force is not bad and the “affirming” force is not good. They are both vital elements, along with our capacity to hold them in awareness (often seen as the “reconciling” force), for creativity, intuition, insights and novel actions to arise. I believe we are being invited to work with differences and challenges more critically during this time, and I invite you to come explore this ancient system with me.
This class is offered in the Narrative Tradition, which is grounded in somatics, spirituality and psychology. The Narrative Tradition is transformative and informative as we share our stories and hearts with one another. It is vital that you have an understanding of your type and the Enneagram to participate. If you have questions about your readiness for this class, please feel free to contact me.
