Each type has its own particular energy. Easy to say, not always so easy to feel! And yet, experimenting with the specific flavour of one’s energy is a tremendous awakening experience that brings about great insight! As Gurdjieff used to say “The Enneagram, to be understood, must be thought as being in movement”. And we know how important the body is for a thorough understanding of teachings received and to strengthen consciousness as well. The Improvisation Theater techniques and philosophy appeal to wide listening, great flexibility, constant mobility, true solidarity, ability of taking one’s place and changing one’s role and capability to take the right action, right now. In other words, it’s a wonderful and playful way to work on one’s quality of presence. A warm up will enable us to get grounded and centered. It will also give us a first opportunity to notice the differences of energy. Then we’ll practice “the pyramid blind walk” and we’ll experiment with the unbelievable power of each types’ energy as well its uniqueness.
