In this workshop we will explore the 9 specific illusions that separate us from truly knowing that we are connected to all and everything. The Enneagram of Personality is a constricted view of the Truth that creates an Illusion of Separation. Through experiential practices we will deepen our capacity for connectedness and vulnerability and increase our awareness of the inner blocks to unity. In relationship with others we will be supported in finding the way home to the true and essential Self.
