Do you find yourself saying I used to think/ feel/behave in a certain way, but now I think/ feel/behave differently? What explains the evolution of your type? How do you explain the expansion of others and of humanity as a whole? Deborah’s research into the levels of consciousness and her paper published in the 2010 International Enneagram Journal describe the bio-psychosocial evolution which occurs when we shift our values and ways of conceptualizing the world. Deborah pairs the Enneagram with these Levels of Consciousness and uniquely describes a powerful and life changing combination of the two systems that provides a new tool (Consciousness Ascending) to uncover where you have been and to predict where you are going. Through film clips, dyad activities, and type groups explore your Enneagram Type at each Level of Consciousness to your individual development as well as the unfolding of humanity. Reflect on how your/generational conflicts arise and how to create understanding and unity across generations and within yourself. Discover how each of the levels are expressed and repressed in your life and how expanding your understanding of these levels can transform your life.
