The Enneagram is a powerful tool for psychological integration, spiritual awakening, and innovative multi-dimensional conversations that transform important personal, societal, cultural and global issues in the 21st century. The sophistication and dynamism of the Enneagram contains capacity to create deeper multi-vectored experiential processes/practices/conversations than are often employed, thus supporting people’s capacity for sustained presence and innovative collaboration.
Participants will experience breakthroughs, insights for practice, and learn 27 processes to work with themselves and others. They will practice three-centered transformation of kinesthetic awareness; emotional expansion and freedom; perceptual shifts; and spiritual experiences of each types’ capacities and gifts. They will then practice speaking and conversing from expanded presence, flow and creativity. Each process flows seamlessly into the next, facilitating increasing experiences of wholeness and integration. “Flow” creates enduring shifts into functioning and dialoguing from presence. Mihaly Csikszentmihaly describes “flow” as focused fullbodied experience that includes stretch and growth. The Enneagram invites that dynamic flow from core contraction to core opening, AND precisely identifies resistances to flow. An unbroken flow of immersion Enneagram practices dissolves perceived limits and disconnections between states of presence, functioning, and decision-making. It also cultivates substantive listening to others, and participation in collective creativity and functioning.
