Transformation occurs in conversations when we are able to accept the resistance to change and relate to it with compassion; but speak to and bring forth the essential qualities of being that is ready and wanting to awaken to one’s full potential.

Non-transformational conversations can be characterized as egos (Enneatypes) arguing, placating or pumping one another up avoiding whatever might reveal the self-defeating inadequacies of egoic patterning. Transformational conversations begin when at least one person is in tune with their eternal being, accepting of the way things are and experiences no separation between themselves and the other. Then one’s natural sense of curiosity can guide the process of discovering how to relax the ego defenses and allow the natural processes of transformation to unfold.

In this experiential workshop you will learn how to take refuge in your eternal nature, and accept more fully the way things are with a spirit of loving kindness that arises out of a sense of unity. From this Buddha-like consciousness then explore how to engage in a transformational conversation that helps people draw on their essential qualities of being in order to relax their egoic fixations and awaken to their full evolving potential.
