The Enneagram and Spirituality: A Deep Dive into Inner Practices

In this gathering, we will explore practices that awaken our capacity to live life wide open.  It is possible to experience and perceive a greater reality, opening the apertures of body, heart and head.  The nine Enneagram types are oriented around these three centers of intelligence, which are typically dominated by our personality.  While these intelligences, when under the control of the type, aid in navigating the world, they are often obstacles between ourselves and God, and the ability to be receptive to a greater reality.

In the silence, we love all beings, but in daily life, we find ourselves in negative judgments and reactivity.  Through inner practices, we can notice our reactivity and choose how we want to respond internally, and act and relate externally.  We can witness our type patterns, open our hearts in kindness, and be in grounded presence.  These capacities change everything and they take practice.

This class presented in the Narrative Tradition, which brings the Enneagram to life through interview and inquiry of the nine Enneagram types. The panel method quickly builds community and supports learning through the mind, heart and body.
