Writing Your Enneagram Journey

We all have stories about who we are, shaped by our personality and experiences. These narratives are important because they influence our behavior and define the limits of what we can do. In order to make sense of our life, we tell ourselves a story about it, and our life falls in line with our story. Let's identify the [...]

Triads – the Foundation of Transformational Practice

Being stuck in one's type is one of the most common problems in the Enneagram culture. The theme of this year's conference speaks to this problem. In the rush to find one's individual place in the Enneagram circle, some critical information may be passed over. For transformative practice to be effective, we need a solid foundation to build on. [...]

Recovery and Transformation

Each of us is recovering from something in our lives. Many find themselves addicted to substance or process addictions. And whether or not we have a "socially unacceptable addiction," each of us, as we navigate our way through life and awaken to see the strategies we have come to employ to manage our lives, may see that we are [...]

Blunt, Honest, or Kind? What Really Works?

The Enneagram is a potent tool with the power to change people's lives. Like a surgeon's knife, in skilled hands it has the power to heal - but used without skill it can leave wounds. According to the latest research into human relationships, kindness is the most effective way to communicate and support transformative information. And kindness is directly [...]

The Arising of Conscience: The Enneagram and the Turning of the Heart

It is widely known in spiritual work that genuine transformation is a transformation of the heart. Yet, the traditional teachings behind the Enneagram make it clear that this can only happen through an awakening in the body and in the mind as well. It takes most of us a while to really understand what the centers are in our [...]

Working through your Ennea-type: The Power of Inquiry

Inquiry is a powerful practice for diving deeper into what's actually here, the reality of the present moment. It is a practice that allows us to penetrate the Enneagram of personality so the type patterns, the Virtues and Holy Ideas all become accessible experientially, not just intellectually. Sandra Maitri will guide us through using Inquiry to access what lies [...]

Enneagram and Race – Rebuilding The Bridge That Bias Broke

Is it possible not see what is happening in the world around us? Is it logical to engage in doing "the work" of the Enneagram and not put this work into practice for the good of all humanity? Bias has existed from the beginning of time and will not be solved in a day. This workshop is designed to [...]

Transformation through Movement: Increase Emotional Intelligence with the Embodied Enneagram

One of the purposes of "transformation" is to return to a state of wholeness and back to your "true nature."

What’s the Solution to Your Problem? Ask the Living Enneagram

In this workshop, discover solutions from the head center of intelligence. Yes, real solutions emerge, for the pressing problems facing us on a personal, family, community and global basis.

The Enneagram and Mindfulness: A Path of Transformation

The Enneagram as a map of human consciousness unites exquisitely with the transformative power of Mindfulness practice. Mindfulness helps us to meet things as they are rather than simply through the projection of our type's perspective.

The WID Factor – Why I Do What I Do

Have you ever thought, "Why do I do what I do?" When it comes to decision making - are you ruled by your heart, your head or your gut? All three play a factor, and one will dominate your personality and influence the way you view the world. Much has been presented around the Enneagram, but little has been [...]

Making Friends With and Integrating Our Shadow Using the 4 R’s

Whenever we identify with idealized aspects of our persona (me), we tend to disidentify with our opposite shadow attributes (notme). For example, if we think of ourselves as being loving and kind, then we don't want to be thought of as being selfish and cruel. To avoid these unacceptable parts of ourselves, we put them in the basement (our [...]

Enneatools for Love

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 [...]

What is the Sensation of that? Somatic Focusing and the Enneagram

Are we allowing the full range of our human experience? Can we develop our capacity to access a more full experience? How would our life be enhanced if we could? From an early age, our thoughts, emotions, and even our ideas begin as sensory experience in the body. As our language and cognitive abilities develop, this fuller range of [...]

AWP Growth Model – Getting “Un-stuck” Through the Centers

From our experience and observations as Warriors for the Human Spirit and Integral Coaches, we have noticed and identified common underlying patterns and places where people tend to stumble or get "stuck" on particular issues or topics places where development stalls, connections break down, and frustration sets in. Our deep curiosity and exploration around these recurring themes led to [...]

“Back to the Future” and “Bolero” – Naranjo’s Magic for Balancing the Centers

In this session, you will be treated to one of the most profoundly transformative processes from Claudio Naranjo's SAT (Seekers After Truth) program.

These generally form along Enneagram lines, reveal core issues of shame, fear and anger, and subconsciously influence your beliefs [...]

Dealing With Difficult People: The Real Art of Negotiation

Conflict is the inevitable consequence of personality. Each of us has a unique perspective that develops from the interaction of our genetic traits and our life experience. We learn to think, solve problems and communicate in a fashion that produces apparent results. But, the results can also produce conflict and hostility in others. This seminar presents an innovative approach [...]

The Instinctual Drives and Inner Work

Instinct is the most basic organization of awareness in an organism. More than mere survival strategies, instincts are the platform for our physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being. However, the Personality becomes identified with these drives, confusing the survival of our organism with the survival of the ego, providing one of the primary ways we lose presence. With that in [...]

Instinctual Leadership: Balancing the Three Instinctual Domains

Many people have experienced how knowledge of the Enneagram can be helpful at work and in leadership, but few understand how to apply knowledge of the three instinctual biases to the same topics. Truly understanding the instinctual biases can be just as important as understanding the nine Enneatypes--if not more so. The program will begin with an overview of [...]

“Back on Track” – Practices to Identify and Transform the Derailers of Each Type into More Effective Patterns

There are some predictable work-related behavioral patterns, or derailers, that tend to undermine the performance of each of the types. These derailers occur when the stress and challenges of work interact with a thinking pattern and an emotional need. This interaction results in a pattern of behavior that may not seem like a problem to the individual but it [...]

Poetry and the Enneagram – The Power to Transform

Keats called poetry a "remembrance," Faust a "distillation," and Wordsworth a "preservation" of everything which humanity loves, works for, and hopes to maintain. In other words, poetry touches all Three Centers of Human Intelligence: Body, Heart, and Mind. Engaging with a poem can awaken the reader to a new awareness, acutely felt, in his or her deepest place of [...]

Embodying and Integrating the Seven Centers of Intelligence

The Enneagram of Personality teaches three centers of intelligence, the mind, heart, and body. Gurdjieff's original system taught the Enneagram as a system of transformation through awakening and integrating the seven centers of intelligence: instinctual, moving, sexual, emotional, intellectual, higher emotional, and higher intellectual. To be fully awake, all seven centers must be expanded and integrated. We will explore [...]
