Enneagram types can be approached from a developmental as well as a psychological perspective. Bodynamic Analysis is a somatic psychotherapy that accesses the history stored in the body and mind. Its Seven Developmental Stages model of childhood growth has correlations with Enneagram types. Varying degrees of resourced or disturbed experience in any Stage will show in adults as specific behaviors, body postures, and motivational themes. The Stages are based on the major psychological themes and physical/ dev elopmental tasks faced by a growing child: Existence, Need, Autonomy, Will, Love/Sexuality, Opinion Forming, Solidarity/Performance. Correspondences with Enneagram types can provide valuable insights towards growth and development.

The presentation will include lecture, demonstrations, and experiential exercises.
