We often hear that intimacy with another is only possible to the extent that we are intimate with ourselves. But what does this really mean? In this talk, Don Riso and Russ Hudson will explore ways in which the Enneagram can be used to deepen contact with our inner experience, thereby creating a space in which real relating with others can occur. They will explore how each personality type loses the fundamental ground of connectedness as well as how each type can reawaken to this connection. Don and Russ will discuss the Harmonic Groups, the Instinctual Variants (subtypes), and other related ideas and conclude with an experiential exercise.
