Until one is quite advanced, spiritual development consists in breaking our Enneagram trances. If you are studying spiritual material, either under a teacher or by reading, you are usually studying a tradition that has a fairly clear Enneagram orientation. This workshop will use the Enneagram as a template to identify the Enneagram styles of various traditions, then discuss how the stress and security points function as resources to identify which spiritual traditions will be most helpful for each Enneagram style. Participants will be given excerpts from writings from major traditions and asked to identify what Enneagram style informs it and how this tradition will be positive, negative or neutral in helping specific Enneagram styles.
