Sex and love–two topics that are rarely discussed yet rule lives when kept in the shadows. Join Dr. Deborah Ooten and Beth O’Hara in an exciting, transformative and multidimensional exploration of sex and love. Explore different conceptualizations of sex and love for the 9 types at the different levels of consciousness (Spiral Dynamics) that lead to greater conflict and separation when misunderstood yet open the doors to greater intimacy and connection when embraced with understanding and compassion. Challenge your own beliefs about sex and love through type groups, dyads and exercises that stimulate the mind, body and heart. Learn ways to shift your consciousness to a whole new level. Dr. Deborah Ooten is a pioneer in research pairing the Enneagram with Spiral Dynamics. She joins with Beth O’Hara who has studied and applied the Enneagram and Spiral Dynamics in depth. Dr. Ooten’s original research on the Nine Enneagram types at eight levels of consciousness was published in the 2010 IEA Enneagram Journal. Dr. Ooten and Beth O’Hara will be presenting the next phase of this exciting, ongoing research in the areas of sex and love for the first time in this presentation.
