Mystics and quantum physicists say everything in existence is in relationship with everything else. Conscious committed interpersonal relationships offer possibilities for experiencing and embodying this truth. Conscious relationship can facilitate integral awakening, including the deep satisfaction of human needs. Much of what people call “love” is negotiation, contract, illusion, or grasping for certainty or a sensation of aliveness. Fixated psyches create symbiosis, dependency, polarization, power negotiation, imago formation, and projection. This blocks the realization of authentic love with its connection, spaciousness, freedom, holding, liberation, and contact.
Each Enneatype has an inherent and effortless gift of authentic love. Every type can learn to cultivate and embody all nine gifts and ways of loving from Essence. In fixation we relate from deficiency and look to relationship for completion. Authentic love, which the nine gifts co-create, matures us into recognizing and choosing real love.
This experiential workshop will explain each type’s inherent gift of love, including examples from movie clips, real life, and poetry. There will be examples of how neural wiring related to sexuality and self-preservation patterns can be transformed in the presence of authentic love. We will take two experiential journeys using breath, guided imagery, movement, music, and meditation.
