Holistic Enneagram Series: A Spirituality of Head, Heart, and Body
July 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until August 1, 2019
What would you say if I told you that you have more than one brain—that your heart and your gut both have their own intrinsic nervous systems? They have neurons that can take on information, store it, change, and adapt. Your head, heart, and gut are the components of your human mind, and the Enneagram can help you better listen to all of them. Join other women and nonbinary folks under 40 for this four-week class (July 11, 18, 25, Aug 1, Thursdays, 7-9pm) that will cover:
Triads and Resource Points
Become aware of the multiple triads and resource points in the Enneagram system that distinguish and nuance each personality type.
Ego Defense Mechanisms and Body-based Character Structure
Learn more about the defense mechanisms of each type, that acts as the “glue” that supports the personality structure. Recognize how the defense mechanisms are all based in the lead center of intelligence for that type.
Instinctual Subtypes: Self-Preservation, Sexual, Social
At first glance, there are 9 Enneagram Types, but an awareness of subtypes indicates there are three unique expressions of each of the 9 types, totaling 27 ways of moving through the world. This class can assist those who are having a hard time claiming their own type.
Deepening Spiritual Awareness
This final session is an experiential course that offers spiritual practices to transform your own type structure and help you build an inner capacity to recognize and relax your emotional passions as they arise – thus “converting vice to virtue.”
