Enneagram: The Nine Faces of the Soul - Coming Home to True Self

Date: 
4,11,18, 25 October 2017

WEBINAR UPDATE: September 22... The second edition of our latest webinar  "Enneagram: The 9 Faces of the Soul" has sold out again. This time in less than a week. 

So we have closed registration on both the editions listed below. Disappointing news perhaps to some who still wished to sign up... But there is good news. We are working once again with Australian author, spiritual director and Enneagram expert to do yet another 4-part series with the identical content. Please check this web page... and facebook... for the latest information in the coming days. We are very grateful to all those who have signed up. We think it's going to be a great learning experience with the potential to impact both your professional and your personal lives.

 

 

 

Do you seek true self?

Do you want to companion others as they discover their own paths to true self?

If you answered yes to either question, then this 4-part webinar is for you.

We all want to heal and grow, to thrive and prosper, to feel whole not broken. We yearn to feel the deep connection that links all beings. Some call it experiencing God’s presence or deepening in their particular faith. Others use the word “Spirit” or refer to awareness or awakening or compassion. But in all traditions – and for the millions of people without a tradition – authenticity is the gateway to a spiritual life. People of spirit have always sought true self.

Designed for spiritual directors but open to anyone on a spiritual path, “The Nine Faces of the Soul” will investigate the Enneagram, an ancient wisdom system which offers a deeper understanding of ourselves, compassion for others and love for the divine.

You'll learn more about yourself and you'll start to see the world through other people’s eyes, understanding why people think, feel and behave the way they do.  By challenging us to see the way we really are, the Enneagram helps us recognize and overcome self-defeating patterns of behavior. It helps us become our most authentic selves.

At work, most of us have come across personality typing and testing. According to Father Richard Rohr, the Enneagram is a system with a difference, offering a means of "self-discovery and spiritual transformation." Many spiritual directors would agree.

Led by Australian spiritual director Margaret Loftus, both series will be held in October. Ms. Loftus, an author and Enneagram teacher in the narrative tradition, will offer an introduction as well as a closer look at each of the nine types of Enneagram.

Session 1 – Introduction to the Enneagram - October 2, 2017 2 PM (London),  9 AM EDT (New York), 6 AM PDT (Los Angeles) , 10 PM (Melbourne). This session will give a brief history of the Enneagram, an outline of the true and false selves and an overview of the nine types..It will introduce the three centers of intelligence: The Head, the Heart and the Gut.  In human personality, one intelligence is usually more dominant and influences us to view the world in a particular way. Your view of the world is what you think about and what you feel. We need all three centers to be functioning and integrated so that we can do our inner work and live as our most loving and authentic selves.

Session 2 –  The Gut or Instinct Centers: Types 8, 9, 1 - October 9, 2017 2 PM (London),  9 AM EDT (New York), 6 AM PDT (Los Angeles) , 10 PM (Melbourne). In this session, you will learn how these personality types - 8, 9 and 1 - are motivated by their instincts and consciously or unconsciously are concerned with power and justice. Each type seeks autonomy and has an underlying feeling of anger.  We will look at how these types demonstrate their anger by either acting it out, moving away from it or trying to control it. Each of these personality styles also has unique gifts -  innocence, right action, and patience - which can lead to greater personal freedom and spiritual maturity. We will finish with a prayerful meditation for each type that will focus on enhancing these gifts and relaxing the constructs of the false self.

These three types seek attention or validation from others. We will look at how the different types manifest feelings of unworthiness by either continually giving in order to receive, by being successful in order to be valued or by creating a unique identity.

We will finish with a prayerful meditation for each type that will focus on enhancing these gifts and relaxing the constructs of the false self

Types 5, 6 and 7 have underlying feelings of fear and anxiety and are concerned with security and survival.

We will finish with a prayerful meditation for each type that will focus on enhancing these gifts and relaxing the constructs of the false self.
