Type and its Inner Witness: Our Intuitive Faculty of Perception

We can recognize thoughts as they appear and tell them to [...]

Contact with the Animal Body as Foundation for Awakening

  Transformation begins with knowing ourselves as consciousness occupying an animal body. Historically, spiritual traditions have often portrayed our spiritual nature and our material nature as at odds with one another, with the body objectified as a distraction from spiritual pursuits. This disconnection between the needs of our animal form and the development of our consciousness is at the [...]

Using the Twelve Steps and Three Instincts in Recovery

We are all Recovering from something ; a broken relationship, overspending, or even dysfunctional family dynamics; we are all hooked on our patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.

The Inner Turn

More than ever before, information about the Enneagram is widely available.

Irony of Ironies: Relational Repetitive Dynamics

One of the reasons we concoct our defensive strategies is to protect us from the hurts, embarrassments, diminishments, sensitivities, et.al. that we experienced sometime in our life. The irony of this approach is that it brings about the very thing we are trying to avoid. The solution becomes the problem. For example, if a ONE (or any other type [...]
