Lovemaps, Sexual “Fits and Misfits”

This workshop will take a serious look into the meaning and importance of lovemaps for establishing and especially maintaining long-term love relationships. The Enneagram will be used to determine what elements are relevant, or perhaps vitally necessary, for a [...]

Stages of Liberation Using the Enneagram as a Tool

[NO RECORDING] There is a powerful awakening that occurs when a person first hears and understands that their whole life has been orchestrated by a fixated pattern of behavior. Often this understanding is accompanied by the awareness that there are many others with the same pattern and these others have had very similar issues to their own. This is [...]

Integrating The Enneagram of Personality with The Levels of Emotional Maturity

Enneagram theory and discussions briefly acknowledge levels of emotional health as healthy, average and unhealthy, but do not significantly address how to facilitate movement from one level to a healthier level. Even Riso and Hudson's Nine Levels of Development, as helpful as they are, are descriptive rather than prescriptive. Integrating the Levels of Emotional Maturity (a model that describes [...]

The Enneagram and the Body: Character Structure and Armoring as Software, the Enneagram as Hardware

[NO RECORDING] This presentation will compare the Enneagram as pre-birth temperament styles with the theory of post-birth character structures and armoring from body psychotherapy. Wilhelm Reich, Alexander Lowen and others have developed a general theory of psychological stress from early childhood which is harbored in the body through body armoring and character structures or ego defenses. The presenter sees [...]

How to Build up Levels of Consciousness in School Systems with the Enneagram

[NO RECORDING] This work was first presented by Delbar as a research project in one of the schools that trains eduators in Iran.

The relative functionality of a school depends on how cooperative teachers, parents and students are [...]

Satsang/ A Conversation with Don Riso and Russ Hudson

[NO RECORDING] The word "satsang" comes from the Sanskrit for "sat," which means "highest truth" and "sanga," which means "company / community." Thus, at its simplest, a satsang is a gathering of people who are Seekers of Truth working with the guidance of a teacher who has had a direct experience of True Nature. Through most of history, satsangs [...]

Enneagram in the Structured Conversations

[NO RECORDING] This presentation will contribute to a greater understanding of the role played by Enneagram types and centers in conflict and conflict conversations. Conflict conversations follow a pattern. There are prevailing patterns of conversation that lead to effective and satisfactory resolution. Heart types like to keep things in the past. Body types will explore the present and Head [...]

The Magic Quarter Second – Emotional Intelligence, the Enneagram and Transformation

[NO RECORDING] There is a quarter of a second between the time your brain has an impulse to do something, and the moment you do it. That means you have a "magic quarter second" during which you could stop yourself from an emotional response you may later regret. But awareness alone often is not enough to change a habit [...]

Sense and Sensibility: Jane Austen’s Insights into the Power of Relationships for Personal Growth

[NO RECORDING] Jane Austen's vision of the power of personal relationships to shape our lives is eloquently expressed in her great novel, Sense and Sensibility. As Austen describes the quest of two sisters for appropriate husbands, we witness their struggles with the constraints of their 19th century society and the blind spots natural to their Enneagram styles. In the [...]

Identifying and Understanding the 27 Enneagram Subtypes

Through lecture, group discussion, and panels, this session will describe the distinct characteristics of the 27 Enneagram subtypes as articulated by Claudio Naranjo. While many studies of the subtypes focus on the generic nature of the three instinctual tendencies, self-preservation, social, and one-to-one, or the way they manifest dynamically in terms of "stacking," this presentation will highlight the defining [...]

Unconventional Consulting: Paradigm-busting Tips and Tricks for Consulting with the Enneagram to Organizations and People

[NO RECORDING] Far more compelling and consequential than the nine types, the Enneagram is a system which describes and prescribes personal and organizational change. The Enneagram is most profoundly a paradigm buster: it suggests counterintuitive paths of inquiry, paradoxical interventions and serendipitous outcomes. Here we will explore the applications of the Enneagram to a more deeply felt and skillful [...]

From Magic to Miracles – Transforming Our Communication Skills by Synchronizing Our Interrelational Instinctual Body Language

[NO RECORDING] Our personal instinctual focus has a major impact on our daily choices; in the way we act, think, feel and ultimately express ourselves. It is also clearly demonstrated in our body language. And that in itself has a direct effect on the ways people see and relate to us. It is a well-known fact that 70-90% of [...]

The Enneagram “Tritype”: Exploring the Hierarchy of Your Three Centers of Intelligence

The concept of having not just one, but three primary Enneagram types, referred to as your `Trifix' was first introduced by Ichazo and has been extensively researched by Enneagram Explorations. Each Enneagram type represents a strategy to negotiate life, relationships and work.Although one is your preferred strategy, acting as the CEO, you also use the strategies of two other [...]

The Enneagram: Geometry – Arithmology – Theology

[NO RECORDING] In antiquity Geometry and Arithmetic constituted two of the four major intellectual disciplines that comprised a classical education (The other two disciplines were Astronomy and Music/Harmony).

The Shaman’s Journey Beyond the Ego

[NO RECORDING] Shamans are the religious specialists among indigenous societies who sustain themselves with hunting or horticulture. While their methods vary, they have in common an understanding that travel beyond the world of ordinary consciousness is both possible and beneficial.

General Theory of the Enneagram and Readings from the Tao Te Ching

Alone, the Enneagram is a valuable map of the unconscious, but as the key to venerable and more enlightened ways of consciousness, its value is beyond price. The Enneagram diagram is like a valuable antiquity revealed in the desert. The Enneagram is a fragment of a lost and ancient way to deepen and awaken consciousness in human beings. The [...]

Sitting for the World

[NO RECORDING] All of the spiritual traditions of the world incorporate meditation and contemplation as part of their spiritual practice.

Building Trust with the Enneagram

[NO RECORDING] See how the Enneagram can "fuel" a proven trust development model. Too often relationships between individuals and teams are damaged based on lack of trust. There are three critical components to trust, and different styles stack those elements differently. So often the trust break is more lack of definition and misunderstanding. There are also five trust building [...]

Life Cycles, Hermetic Laws and Enneagram

Enneagram is more than a typology. Khristian Paterhan has been researching this symbol for more than 20 years according to the teachings left by G.I.Gurdjieff and he has been discovering many things.

In Your Face Spiritual Transformation

[NO RECORDING] Somehow we seekers fell into a trap as we started to pull apart spiritual transformation. The trap is that we talk about it rather than embodying it.

Death and the Enneagram

[NO RECORDING] This presentation proposes the perspective/theory that at the center of the development of personality types in general, and Enneatypes specifically, is each individual's ultimate awareness of and confrontation with his or her own mortality, and that this occurs at an early age. And that this is a fact of life--an integral part of life. Our consciousness separates [...]

Meta Programs and the Enneagram

[NO RECORDING] Derived from Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Meta Programs are unconscious, deep-rooted patterns by which we filter our experience and shape our perceptions. Like Enneagram styles, Meta Programs help us create and sustain our subjective reality and maintain our personal narrative. Meta Programs overlap with and nicely complement the Enneagram, giving the latter additional depth and texture, leading to [...]
