The Enneagram of Personality describes nine personality or ego types that arise as a result of loss of contact with our True Nature in early childhood.
Fundamental to each type is a fixed orientation toward oneself and life that results from this loss.
Out of these “fixations”, whole patterns of mental, emotional, and behavioral tendencies develop. Through understanding the enneagram, we can develop a much clearer sense of what in ourselves is ultimately real and what is mechanical pattern.
This allows detachment from the inner structures that separate us from our spiritual depths, and helps us develop more understanding and acceptance of ourselves and of others.
While much information is currently available about the psychology of the nine types, the spiritual dimension out of which they arise is seldom recognized or taught.
In this 10-session course, we will explore how the particular ‘take’ on reality at the core of each of the nine types begins, and the belief-structures, emotional patterns, and behaviors that result.
In this way, we will understand the basic outlines of each of the nine types and the rationales underlying them.
While the enneagram is a very powerful and accurate map of the personality or ego structure, it does not tell us how to work through the terrain it describes.
This working through only happens through inner work that encompasses both psychological understanding as well as a spiritual orientation.
Sandra’s teaching of the enneagram is informed by her decades of work as a teacher of the Diamond Approach to Inner Realization.
The material will be taught through lectures and experiential exercises to directly connect with the teaching in the immediacy of one’s own personal experience.
This is a self paced course that you may follow at your own schedule.
