Derived from Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Meta Programs are unconscious, deep-rooted patterns by which we filter our experience and shape our perceptions. Like Enneagram styles, Meta Programs help us create and sustain our subjective reality and maintain our personal narrative. Meta Programs overlap with and nicely complement the Enneagram, giving the latter additional depth and texture, leading to new ways to use the Enneagram to change and grow. Meta Programs operate, in large part, unconsciously and come in two varieties, related to inner motivation and outer communication. In this workshop we will explore and experience the Meta Programs most relevant to the Enneagram. These include how people process information, make decisions, experience time, set goals and what they generalize, delete and distort.
This workshop will also introduce the Meta Model, a powerful language model that has many intersections with the Enneagram. The Meta Model helps you recognize and respond to the language patterns of different Enneagram styles and offers linguistic distinctions that will help you communicate better with everyone. If knowing someone’s Enneagram style helps you speak their language, the Meta Model will help you speak their dialect.
