About this Event

Applying new Enneagram-based formulas for self-development and liberation from the self-limiting defensive patterns of the personality through:

• Exploration and applications of Gurdjieffian centers of intelligence and corresponding levels of awareness.

• Individual shadow work to free up energy spent avoiding what feels unacceptable to the personality.

• Deconstructing personality type, subtype, and the impact of instinctual sequence.

• Understanding and addressing mental patterns and fixations.

• Using the arrow line connected points for growth.

• Evoke the Virtues and Holy Ideas to loosen unconscious attachments to the passions and fixations.

This is the second in our 3-retreat series of transformational Enneagram-based inner work retreats specifically designed for people who want to use the Enneagram system as a vehicle for deeper self-understanding and intensive personal growth.
