Are you blocking yourself from the love you want? The Enneagram offers a powerful map for understanding where we lose connection in love and why. But insight alone doesn’t allow us to drop our defenses or forget our vulnerabilities. We need support in finding our way back. In this session you will learn how each Enneagram type unintentionally gets in the way of giving and receiving love. You will also learn practices to navigate through the challenging and fertile territory that close relationships necessarily present us with. These tools will help you:

Work with your defenses, encouraging yourself back to the present

Unravel core negative beliefs about yourself and the other

See past surface conflicts to understand true needs

Reclaim the wholeheartedness you are made for

Engage the wisdom of your head, heart and belly

Cultivate the generative, tender, and brave place love asks us to stand in

Through experiential exercises, lecture and discussion, we will explore how to reduce the grip of our types in this tender territory, and how to show up more willingly for the gifts love wants us to receive.
