Awareness combined with action does create dynamic change and healing. The Enneagram gives us a powerful way to observe the personality, patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. Many of us have grown in our relationships through the profound awareness and understanding available through the Enneagram. However, we may still find ourselves stuck in habitual patterns because the patterns themselves need to be healed and moved. The Internal Family System (IFS) model is a profound tool for compassionate action, which heals the stuck patterns within our personality structures. We will use the IFS methods to directly access our Enneagram personality patterns, explore their origins, witness their contribution to our survival, and open to the healing of patterns that are stuck.

At the conclusion of the workshop the participant will be able to: 1) describe the basic components of Internal Family systems (IFS) model of therapy by identifying the role of protective parts and discussing the role of self leadership; 2) use the IFS model of therapy to identify the constellation of parts associated with their Enneagram type; 3) discuss the clinical benefits of using the IFS model and the Enneagram together as a therapeutic intervention for inner change.
