The Enneagram and Mindfulness: From Disconnection to Connection
March 4 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$110.00 – $140.00
Renée Rosario and Peter Williams
In-person or Online!
We are excited to offer another powerful integration of two ancient wisdom traditions – mindfulness and the enneagram.
We are offering brand new content in this program, focusing on the three anecdotes of generosity, love and wisdom to the basic reactive responses that organize our personalities – greed, aversion and delusion. While each Enneagram type uses all of these reactive responses, our primary reactive response is connected with the dominant center of our types as is the anecdote. These reactions disconnect us from what is actually happening and are the root of all our difficult emotions. When we instead move our attention to generosity, love and wisdom, we connect deeply with ourselves, others and the world.
Studying the enneagram, a unique map of personality patterns, leads to an understanding of the default settings of the psyche that prevent us from living life fully. Mindfulness focuses less on the content of our personality and more on the process of our experience. It reveals the way greed, aversion and delusion create an illusion of separateness. Mindfulness helps us drop these reactions to reveal that we deeply belong to all of creation.
Novel opportunities arise from combining these two approaches. For example, knowing our personality patterns helps us let go more readily into mindfulness, while mindfulness helps us experience the patterns in a more intimate and embodied way. The approaches combine to foster abiding happiness and well-being. We think you will enjoy this unique day of personal exploration and meditation!
Participants can attend either in-person or online. COVID-19 testing will be required for in-person folks.
The day will include didactic, panel interviewing, group sharing, and mindfulness practice. This class is for people familiar with their type and the Enneagram. If you are not familiar with the enneagram, please consider purchasing attending an on demand enneagram class: The Enneagram and the Nine Types. https://www.narrativeenneagram.org/on-demand-learning/
