The Psychology of Self-Creation introduces a novel understanding of the Enneagram that bridges and integrates psychological and spiritual theory and practice. Fundamental to this approach is the conviction that human beings, through the exercise of free-choice, are ultimately self-creating. Our deepest striving is to know the essential truth about ourselves, and about life, and to live our lives as an authentic expression of that truth.
This workshop will take participants beyond personality typology into a conception of the Enneagram as a comprehensive map of personal development and inner experience. By understanding the universal themes associated with each point of reference, a person can find hidden obstacles to growth, as well as unlimited resources and richness that go well beyond what people believe to be their particular “number.”
