“How do you relax your type structure at the point of suffering instead of going on automatic? We have brought spiritual method to this human dilemma.” – Helen Palmer  

The title of this session is Personalizing the Map: Loving Kindness, Subtype Behaviors and Relationship to Self. 

Below is a note from Helen, Terry and Renée on your topic this session and Helen’s participation:

Our exploration of Loving Kindness through panels organized by instinctual energies in September provided a rich learning experience. At our next meeting in March, we will continue experimenting with the “mixed” panel format. Our inquiry will focus our personal relationship to our dominant subtype and how we respond to the other two. Most important, we will explore how subtype behaviors impact our capacity to be receptive. 

As you may be aware, Helen joined the September meeting via audio because of a hearing disorder that makes her unable to fly. She continues to heal from this condition and will again be joining via audio or a combination of audio and Zoom. While the exact details of how she will participate are in process, the general outline is for her to offer two or three teachings on the pre-day supported by meditation and inquiry practice and a teaching each day of the workshop after lunch instead of the morning because of the time change. She looks forward to being with us all in this age of virtual community.


We will be meeting in the Bordeaux Room.
