What does it mean to individuate, to become a conscious adult who is seated in his or her unique presence?

How do we get trapped in the Personality’s struggle to maintain a sense of separateness, unable to receive the full gifts of our embodiment and our spiritual nature?

This webinar series deepens the insights from our introductory series on the Instinctual Drives by bringing them into contact with the logos and the Passion of each Enneagram type. Through this exploration, we will sharpen our understanding of how each type lives in a chronic tension, confusing their attempts to meet the unresolved physical needs of their youngest days with the search for their deepest Essence and the true nature of their hearts.

When we learn to observe and sense these old patterns, we can begin to dissolve the tension of our unconscious instinctual needs, and move toward acceptance, integration, and true choice and freedom.

For each of the Nine Enneagram types, we will discover:

  • The fundamental autonomy conflicts that trigger the basic fears of the each instinctual drive
  • The interaction pattern between the dominant instinct and the Passion of each Enneagram type
  • How physical needs and type reactivity combine to put the body into a stress state that separates us from presence
  • How each type searches for “instinctual supplies” in all the wrong places
  • How to better observe and regulate yourself so that you can come back to presence

Join us to step into the possibility of:

  • Greater resilience: An expanded capacity for self-observation, attention, and presence through the ups and downs of life
  • Real personal and spiritual growth: Attending to the true developmental needs of your individual organism
  • Compassion for self and others: Tending to the body, opening the heart
Is This For You?

Watch a Free Preview

Based on feedback from folks who watched the preview live, we’d like to share a few thoughts with you:

  • This series may be unlike other Enneagram courses you’ve taken. All New York Enneagram classes emphasize the importance of developing Presence. Presence begins with learning to be with the sensations of the body, which provide the foundation for the opening of the heart and head. Will you have more cognitive knowledge at the end of this course? Absolutely! And, you’ll also have a lot more sensitivity to the wisdom of your body and your heart. Our premise is that real growth starts from the bottom up (from sensation in the body) rather than from the top down (from ideas in the head).
  • We packed a lot of high-level information into a very short time period. There are a lot of new ideas in this preview, and fully integrating and applying these learnings requires experiential practice. We’ll have plenty of time to unpack and practice with the material in the full series. If you watch the video and feel like “Wow, that was a firehose of new ideas and information coming at me,” or “Hey, that was intriguing, but I’m not sure I totally get it,” that would be a completely normal reaction. Having your usual sense of “knowing” disrupted is a fantastic place to be if you want to cultivate greater Presence.
  • We’d be happy to talk if you want help deciding if this series is for you. If you’ve got questions, or would like to have a short chat about what you heard in the preview, please contact us, and we’ll arrange a mutually convenient time to speak. No hard sales pitches, we promise — we only want you in the class if you want to be there!

p.s. we had a major tornado-like storm that knocked out power and the internet in the NYC area the night before this preview, and we had to scramble to find a new recording location. As a result, the audio on the preview is not as high quality as usual. We hope that won’t happen again, and will re-record any future sessions if the quality is not good enough.
