Thursdays, May 14, 21, and 28, 2020
7:00 – 9:00 pm
Join a contemplative journey into 9 themes that converge when the 9 Enneagram types are aligned with ancient wisdom from the Tao Te Ching. Each pathway represents an ancient spiritual tradition that holds potent wisdom for our challenging times. Together, they invite us into a spirituality that is internally grounded and externally engaged with our world.
After encountering an overview of the Enneagram, the Tao, and their inter-relatedness, we will follow a contemplative process for each theme, including a presentation, silence for personal journaling, and group reflections.
Two books will guide us: Roaming Free Inside the Cage: A Daoist Approach to the Enneagram by William M. Schafer, and A Path and a Practice: Using Lao-tzu’s Tao Te Ching as a Guide to an Awakened Spiritual Life by William Martin. You are encouraged but not required to obtain and explore these books.
