Enneagram – From Reactivity to Compassionate Receptivity
Five Thursday Evening Sessions (4/27-5/25), 7-9pm Ste J
Over five nights, learn how to use the wisdom of the Enneagram, objectively and profoundly, to increase self-awareness & observation skills in reducing the tendency to be in a state of reactivity (autopilot).
Become adept at catching & molding situations which typically provoke constricted, negative thoughts & reactions to consistently more expansive, receptive states in even the most stressful interactions we experience in relationships, both with family and friends, to the wider world-at-large.
More About Enneagram: Enneagram is the most powerful system of transformational psychology available today. This practical yet elegant view of humanity describes nine basic personality types and their relationships to one another. It goes beyond mere descriptions of personality to provide a dynamic, compassionate, and comprehensive guide for living your life and interacting with others. One strength of the Enneagram is its uncanny wisdom, which helps us navigate different emotional styles and understand our feelings and conduct toward others. This counters a significant weakness in our relationships today: the inability to address emotions effectively with others. Not understanding why others communicate the way they do leads to “personalizing behavior,” creating hard feelings and misunderstanding. Emotional frustrations are at the heart of many complications, including: negative attitude, poor communication & lack of understanding, unresolved conflict, and unsatisfying or failed relationships. Ignoring these issues doesn’t make them go away; the Enneagram can address them directly.
The Enneagram doesn’t attempt to solve problems, but rather provides knowledge and tools for people to resolve their own conflicts. It also helps us to explore our habitual mental patterns and the defensive motivations that underlie our behavior. It highlights the natural strengths of each personality type and describes a path of growth promoting understanding, self-acceptance, and confidence. Intimate relationships, work, and personal lives can then become more effective and satisfying!
