“I want to thank you and say that I really enjoyed this. In fact, it’s one of the most enjoyable webinars I’ve been to. I like the way you incorporated the experiential practices and the discussion.”
Manya Arond-Thomas, M.D.
“This is as close as you can get to an in-person class experience.”
If you can’t study with us in-person in NYC, the next best thing is participating in a webinar. We’re using Zoom, an easy-to-use meeting platform that allows for real-time interaction through video and audio.
These are live webinars — if you attend at the scheduled time, it will be just like a regular class. We talk and practice with you in real time, show images and videos to help you integrate the material, and you can ask questions. The next day, you’ll receive a video recording, so that even if you can’t make the class, you can watch at a time that’s convenient for you.
Fee: $30 per webinar.
To purchase/register: We just completed our first two webinars, described below. Scroll down to purchase the video recordings to get access to all the teachings and practices. After you purchase, you’ll receive an email with a link to the videos.
New webinars will be coming in May/June! Sign up for our e-mail list at the bottom of the page and you’ll be the first to know when registration opens.
First series: The Instinctual Drives
Introduction to the Instincts + Self-Preservation Drive
Authentic self-awareness and understanding begins with knowing ourselves as consciousness occupying an animal body. We have three primary Instinctual Drives that help us attend to the basic physical and emotional needs of our organism: Self-Preservation, Sexual, and Social Drives. These are powerful motivational forces behind our behavior, feelings, and thoughts, and they comprise the foundations of our Enneagram Type.
The Self-Preservation Drive is how we support and care for our foundations, and helps us to live in a way that corresponds to our values. It’s the launching pad of our life force and the orienting force for making our life dynamic, balanced, and fulfilling. Fears of scarcity and harm rooted in the Personality can cloud the wisdom of this instinct.
Sexual + Social Drives
The Sexual Drive is our drive to pursue attraction and chemistry. This Instinct discerns enlivening and complementary energies, and it inspires us to invest in and display our life force, talents, and attractive qualities. Fears of being undesirable and sexually overlooked rooted in the Personality can co-opt the capacities of this instinct.
The Social Drive is our awareness of other people and our need to create and maintain relationships. This Instinct recognizes the value of other people and motivates us to care for and participate in dynamics and concerns larger than ourselves. Fears of being ostracized and abandoned rooted in the Personality can overrun the intelligence of this Instinct.
