Foundations of the Enneagram and Intro to Inner Work
Saturday, September 29, 2012 9am-5pm
PVUMC Room H-5
Led by Carole Whittaker, PhD
This is the class for you if you want to understand the connections between the characteristics of your personality and the qualities of your soul’s inner knowing. Please join us… and refer a friend. If you have attended an Introduction before, you may attend free by bringing a friend.
This class combines the Foundation to the Enneagram with Foundations for Inner Work. It provides a thorough foundation for understanding and working with the Enneagram system. It describes the nine personality types, the habits of emotion and thinking, and the avoidances, defense mechanisms and habits of attention that hold each type in place. Methods include teaching, exercises and brief panel interviews with class participants.
The Foundations for Inner Work part of the class provides a bridge from personality work into inner work by tracing the developmental path that leads to a sense of individual consciousness. It examines the relationship between the personality self and the core self with its permanent qualities of the life force (the Virtues) and of being itself (the Holy Ideas.) It also provides an overview of the paths and practices that lead toward integration and serves as preparation for classes emphasizing inquiry method.
The Enneagram Discovery Inventory developed by Dr. David Daniels MD is used to assist participants to identify their own Enneagram personality type. This basic course is highly recommended as preparation for all of the continuing Enneagram programs.
Fee: $80 (includes class notes and Enneagram Essentials by Dr. David Daniels; does not include lunch-bring a sack lunch, refrigerator space will be available) Register at www.azenneagram.com or contact Diane Shevlin 602-300-4970 firstname.lastname@example.org.
