Every Thursday, Sept 12 – November 21
12 – 1:15 in H4
Join us for discussion of the book “Wisdom of the Enneagram” beginning September 12. The book by Don Riso and Russ Hudson offers specific, practical methods for a clear path for personal and spiritual evolution. It works with the psychological and spiritual growth to each of the nine personality types. It integrates precise knowledge of the nine types with wisdom teachings from a variety of spiritual sources around the world, including Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Sufism, and Fourth Way Teachings.
This book presents the Enneagram as “a map of the soul,” laying out the path each type can take from the outer layers of the personality to the inner core of its True Nature. Most importantly, Wisdom demonstrates how the Enneagram can be used to develop Presence and awareness, without which, meaningful spiritual development is not possible.
For those new to the system, The Wisdom of the Enneagram provides comprehensive, easy-to-understand explanations of the Enneagram, as well as two highly accurate questionnaires (the QUEST & the TAS) for determining your type. More advanced readers will find a wealth of innovative material, including dozens of type-specific “Inner Work Sessions,” a complete treatment of the 27 instinctual variants (subtypes), awareness practices that will help each type develop “The Enneagram of Letting Go,” a deeper explanation of the three Centers, and much more.
All readers will learn to:
- Understand the issues and inner logic of their type
- Recognize their type’s “Wake-Up Call,” “Red Flag,” and other features
- Let go of troublesome, self-defeating habits and reactions
- Understand each type’s unconscious motivations and defenses
- Develop the strengths inherent in their type
The book is available in the Serendipities Gift Shop on the PVUMC campus.
