The goals of spiritual psychotherapy are to identify with one’s Higher Self rather than the ego, to accept 100% responsibility for yourself and your life and to practice non attachment.
The Enneagram, a powerful and dynamic personality system offers clear suggestions that help us understand our emotional and thought patterns, our ego, that keep us from experiencing God and our spiritual nature.
This workshop will use case studies to demonstrate how the Enneagram can be a powerful tool in helping our clients to transform their life challenges into experiences of spiritual transformation. We will explore, with each type, how recognizing our object of attention, our strengths and challenges, our basic fear, our defenses, and our vices and virtues can change our relationship with God and ourselves.
