The Enneagram is a map. It leads us through and beyond our personality types into a presence that is grounded and inspired. It guides people into the deep contours of their lives, in ways that are freeing and that activate potential. This three-part class for people with some previous experience of the Enneagram will apply the process of personal evolution to the 9 types of the Enneagram. We’ll also reflect on how we advance through stages of human development, and through mindsets, as we adapt to our changing world and grow spiritually.
Through presentations, and personal and small group reflections, we will journey together with the aim of deepening our awareness and growing life-giving practices. The goal of the classes is to move closer to that enduring Presence that enables us to be awake, receptive, and responsive in the midst of our wonderful and challenging lives.
Session 1: From Fear to Freedom through the Downward Ascent
Explores how the Enneagram frames the human struggle and the journey to liberation, and how each Enneagram type has a unique process of descent that awakens us to our limiting patterns, and ascent that activates our aspirations and best selves.
Session 2: Crossing the Great Divide from the Reactive to the Creative Mind
Considers the stages of psychological development and their corresponding mindsets, the factors that keep us confined to reactivity and those that free us to live creatively, and how we identify our type’s ego needs and move beyond them to live out of our soul desires.
Session 3: Using the Shadow as Bridge to our Higher Mind of Inspiration and Guidance
Examines the parts of ourselves that we avoid or shun (our shadow sides)—gold mines for personal growth—beginning with how each type can harvest its shadow in ways that unlock intuition and inspiration, and ending by identifying how we each are guided toward our soul work in the world.
COST: $75.00 for the series
Participants will be sent required advance work that will help determine their Enneagram type. This is not an introductory class.
