Widely known in the worlds of psychology and spirituality, the Enneagram is a fundamental thread in the Diamond Approach that goes far beyond decoding our personality types, and points to the possibility for a much deeper inner transformation.
When you first discover your primary constellation of personality traits—whether they formed around distorted ideas about perfectionism, or protecting yourself from an untrustworthy world, or giving or overachieving to feel worthy of love…it can be a revelation.
And this revelation can add fuel to a deeply transformational journey.
On Sunday, October 6, 2019, from 10:00am to 1:00pm Pacific time, we invite you to discover the Enneagram’s deeper spiritual applications with Enneagram expert, author, and long-time Diamond Approach teacher Sandra Maitri.
In “The Enneagram and the Diamond Approach,” Sandra will help you understand what inner transformation can look like for each of the nine ennea-types, adding clarity and power to your personal process and accelerating your self-understanding.
She will explain the nine core distortions at the heart of the ennea-types, support you in identifying yours, and help you take the next step in your unique unfoldment, wherever you are on your path.
This online seminar will explore…
- How recognizing your ennea-type and its core distortion can open you to a deeper awareness of your ego’s reactivity and help you foster greater understanding and compassion for yourself and others
- How working with your core ego patterns can help you evolve and develop spiritually, move beyond your blind spots, and participate in the world with greater freedom and clarity.
- How your ego’s reactive patterns can be transformed into a sacred gift that you can bring into the world.
This seminar, which is part of the Diamond Approach Online’s “Spirituality in Daily Life” series, will include a teaching, an interactive Enneagram exercise, and time for questions and comments with Sandra.
A recording of the program will be made available to all registrants, including those who can’t attend live.
