The Spiritual Aspect of Personal Growth

Looking at the Western philosophical tradition, the ancient Greeks postulated that human beings carry inside the body 'psyche' and 'nous.'

On the other hand, the term nous, traditionally translated [...]

Resurgir desde el vacío: Nueve experiencias transformadoras

Hablar de la experiencia del vacío es todo un desafío. En lugar de enfrentarlo, muchas veces quizás ‘le sacamos el cuerpo’, es decir, evitamos experimentar el vacío porque nos resulta naturalmente incómodo. La propuesta que subyace a estas líneas es desmitificar la experiencia del vacío como si fuese algo terrible o insoportable, para no huir de ella intentando —inútilmente— [...]

Myths, dreams images, and various kinds of art all might be considered meaningful expressions of the Archetypes. To say it briefly, the Archetypes are active, psychic structures, which emerge from the Collective Unconscious. They are [...]

Coping with Crises: How Can the Enneagram Help Us when Our Towers Break Down?

Crises are some of the most significant human experiences. All of us have encountered them at times. Crises might last from a few short moments to days, even years. However, the primary significance of a crisis is not how long it lasts, but what it means to us. In general, crises involve experiencing a profound shock, a commotion at [...]

EXPLORING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE ENNEAGRAM AND THE CHAKRAS

  Both the Enneagram and the Chakras are “maps” for consciousness evolution. In other words, they are broad schemes of the integral human development process. However, there are some essential differences between them, namely: While the Enneagram distinguishes and describes in detail psychological features for each of nine personality “types” (ennea-types), the Chakras system is a unified system for [...]

Ambos sistemas holísticos, el Eneagrama y los Chakras, tienen en común que son, de hecho, “mapas” de la evolución de la conciencia, o dicho de otro modo, esquemas generales del proceso de desarrollo integral del ser humano. Una diferencia esencial entre ambos es que el Eneagrama distingue y describe detalladamente las características psicológicas de nueve “tipos” humanos (eneatipos), mientras [...]
