This workshop is organized around the following inquiries:

– When do you feel spiritual? and when do you feel not-sospiritual? How do you know when you are acting from your personality/ego or from your authentic self/essence?

– What keeps you from being spiritual and triggers you to go in a not-so-spiritual direction?

– How do you stay connected to your inner judge? And to your outer judges? What are you afraid will happen if you don’t follow your `shoulds’ or others’ expectations?

– What resources do you need to allay these fears?

– In what way does the not-so-spiritual in you represent a dark spot that hasn’t yet come to the light? What aspect of God wants to come out in you although you’re afraid to let it?

– What are you passionate about? What do you feel called to? Or what divine aspect is God calling or inviting out in you now?

We’ll engage these questions from the spiritual insights of the Enneagram perspective. There will be some input, personal reflection, one-on-one sharing, and large group feedback.
