Endnote Presentation

Host Ginger Lapid-Bogda and presenters Peter O’Hanrahan and Terry Saracino

REACHING ACROSS TRADITIONS: A Tribute to Retired IEA Founder Helen Palmer & The Enduring Power of our Narratives to Unite and Transform Us
During the endnote session of this virtual gathering, we take the opportunity to honor the legacy of Helen Palmer, the recently retired co-founder of the Narrative Enneagram school with Dr. David Daniels, IEA co-founder and bestselling author. For over 45 years, Palmer’s goal — to integrate sound psychology with spiritual method using the Enneagram map — has remained constant.

What started out as a group of forty individuals in Palmer’s living room in the early 70s, over time, expanded to thousands of people who have recognized their types by seeing and hearing panelists talk about their lives. When we share our personal experiences and sacred narratives in a field of compassionate presence, our souls grow and we can more easily experience the shared humanity in each of us. As we listen to the stories and notice the non-verbals of speakers on a type panel, the Enneagram becomes three-dimensional – our minds gain insight and understanding, our hearts are touched, and our bodies experience the energies of the types.

Host Ginger Lapid-Bogda and presenters Peter O’Hanrahan and Terry Saracino connect our roots to our future leading us in conversation with stories from Palmer herself about the history of the IEA and development of the Narrative method. Special guests will share memories of Helen and her impact in this community. O’Hanrahan and Saracino will offer brief teachings and a breakout group with the global community of live attendees. We hope you’ll join us!

The Integral Enneagram Model: Cognitive and Spiritual Developmental Stages of the Enneagram Types

The Integral Enneagram model is the integration of three main components:

The Enneagram: a profoundly enlightening human psychospiritual model that reveals the hidden patterns of human drives, motivational systems, survival strategies, and meaning making methods of life.

Stages of the Mind: the mapping of the journey of each of the 9 Enneagram types along the stages of cognitive capacity and complexity development. For cognitive capacity development the model uses the Spiral Dynamics Integral as the main backbone, in addition to the work of Ken Wilber, Piaget, Gebser, Maslow, and other transpersonal and developmental scientists and their models.

Stages of the Heart: the spiritual journey of each of the 9 types from deep fixation to a sense of mystical unity and oneness. The Sufi 7 stages of development of the ego/self are used as the backbone of the model, in addition to numerous other spiritual works from diverse religious and philosophical backgrounds.

The three models together create a 3D map, providing an accurate diagnosis of the individual personality traits, cognitive and intellectual value systems, and spiritual capacity for presence and oneness.

12:30pm-2:00pm EDT

Really Getting “Out of the Box”

Over the years I have often been quoted and paraphrased for a line I came up with back around 1993:

“The Enneagram doesn’t put you in a box. It shows you the box you are already in without realizing it, and the way out of it.”

Yet, so much of the popular Enneagram does much to describe the box without much in the way of indicating how to get out of it. And at some point if we are sincerely studying this, we become more interested in methods for real change—the inner work behind the descriptions. We start to understand that learning more and more details about our personality is not going to lead to the inner freedom and transformation we seek. In this session, Russ will look at the centrality of inner work as it pertains to understanding the Enneagram, helping us to see why such work is necessary to even apply the Enneagram in any meaningful way. He will explain that the experiential nature of such work frees us from dependence on particular jargon which can be off-putting in some settings. And he will explain how the inner lines of the symbol provide clues about directions for our work, as well as evidence that some authentic change and development has occurred in our psyches.

Russ Hudson

Intro / History / 3 Centers 9 Types [Discovery Track Session]

This session will introduce the history of the Enneagram and the basic Personality Enneagram teachings. Where did the teachings come from and how did they emerge or arrive in their present form? What does it mean to be a “three-centered being”? What are the functions of the Head, Heart, and Body/Gut? How do the 9 personality styles emerge from and relate to the Three Centers?

Was Blind but Now I See...

A bunch of needs that we are not really able to satisfy naturally. We have judgements, emotional patterns and what is most important lack of energy to stand for them. Recognising those limitations is the first step to change the situation. Finding where the energy goes and how to take it back is the second. But those are just the beginning to open the door to satisfaction of the blind needs because a new identity have to emerge to be able to experience fulfillment. We need conscious satisfaction experiences to make that happen. How can we build a safety net to keep ourselves conscious when we leave our insatisfaction comfort zone?

Reaching Across Time: Using the Enneagram to Heal Childhood Trauma

In this presentation we will explore how childhood trauma impacts the way personality operates and the ways the Enneagram map can help us understand how it shapes the different types and how it can be healed through applying type-based insights. The vast majority of people have experienced some sort of trauma in their lives, but the effect of early trauma has not been fully examined in terms of its potential role in mistyping, maintaining the rigidity of defensive type patterns, and successfully achieving real growth and transformation. We will share our views about the ways unresolved early trauma may make it harder to grow and change, but also how we can deploy Enneagram insights to address and heal trauma to move beyond the defensive patterns of the 9 types and access higher potentials. Through lecture, dialogue, case study examples, and a live demonstration in which we will work with someone to highlight the interaction of trauma and personality patterns, we will share our approach to healing trauma through applying Enneagram-based ideas about the centers, the instincts, the types, and the subtypes.

Instinctual Types, Pair Bonding and Intimacy 4.0

Types influence and affect how each of the 9 Enneagram Types form, develop and maintain intimate relationships. It will introduce many significant findings from the first study to the most recent. More specifically, it will cover what has proven to be significant for 26 years.

In 1996, Claudio Naranjo validated the first 1994-1995 Study of the Instinctual Subtypes. In 1998, The Enneagram Types, Instinctual Drives and Intimacy was conducted to more clearly ascertain if the 3 Instincts could be statically validated. This study was university validated in 1998.

The qualitative research of the 23 studies proved to be highly informative as to the internal experiences of the 9 Enneagram Types and 27 Subtypes. The unexpected findings were both validating and intriguing because they came from the 9 types themselves.

Using Enneagram in Counseling and Consulting

How does the Enneagram describe the human personality so accurately? Why does it ring a bell so loudly?

The presenter will share insights gained in 50 years of practice. Like many of you, he first learned the Enneagram in seminar-lectures and discussions. He taught it in similar fashion during residential workshops. In many ways, that blend of socializing and discussing was a perfect way to internalize the insights of the personality theory.

When businesses and organizations asked for access to the Enneagram, many were unwilling to commit to lengthy workshops and residential expenses. Time is money and measurable results are not optional. Sharing the theory beyond North America introduced language and cultural issues.

Pat will share how he learned to integrate the insights of the Enneagram into the practice of individual-counseling/therapy and organizational-development/consulting. He learned some important techniques to use the Enneagram without teaching it, per se.

Join Pat as he unwraps the tools he developed while doing various kinds of one-on-one counseling. Small groups benefit from these similar interventions. Whether the process is behavioral-change or executive-search, the practitioner is much better equipped to attain the desired effect.

Larger groups benefit from some formal input. But, the genius of the Enneagram is how it forms visual and visceral images of behavior. The descriptions go beyond stereotypes to reveal motivation and sub-consiousness. These insights can be authenticated through carefully-designed dynamics.

Patrick H. O’Leary, M.S., M.Div

Pat O’Leary began his 50-years’ experience with the Enneagram as one of the Chicago Jesuits in a year-long graduate seminar with Bob Ochs. Ochs had just finished his studies with Claudio Naranjo, MD. O’Leary began offering Enneagram weekends at Jesuit Retreat House in Cleveland OH.

Word spread and Pat was invited to teach the Enneagram in Canada, South America, Europe and Asia. In 1984 O’Leary and Maria Beesing, co-authored the very first textbook, The Enneagram: A Journey of Self- Discovery.

O’Leary is one of the founders of the International Enneagram Association. He developed a training program for Enneagram teachers and refined the theory to be used as a valuable instrument for organizations and corporations, as well as, for personal growth. His current interest is use of Enneagram insights without teaching the theory … a valuable tool for counselors and consultants. IEA Accredited with Honor

Reaching Across in Diverse Arts: How the Enneagram Inspires Creativity in Arts & Media

Everyone is creative. Whether a person makes their living with their art, dabbles occasionally as a hobby, or flirts with the idea of doing that creative thing that they haven’t done since childhood, each of us has the capacity to process our lives and experiences through creative work. How we go about doing this is strongly impacted by our personality.

This panel brings together four people working in various branches of the arts: music, theatre, literature and visual arts. Each person has knowledge and understanding of the Enneagram. Some have made the Enneagram a direct subject of their art.

Over the course of this two hour conversation, the panelists will share their work and explore the ways the Enneagram has impacted their lives and creative output. They’ll share insights about their processes. And they’ll open up to all questions.

Teach the Enneagram through Metaphor, Picture and Story

Metaphor is a figure of speech that directly compares one thing to another for the purpose of illuminating information and amplifying that which is being taught. Pictures, understood as symbol that represent something in reality, are also metaphors for that which they represent. And so are stories, at least meaningful "sticky" stories, stories that are transcend the individual story characters and take our understanding to the more universal.

You'll learn how to create and use metaphor, picture and story when you teach the Enneagram. Here's why learning these techniques makes such a huge difference. Most teaching focuses on the brain's left hemisphere that utilizes logic and categories; metaphor, picture and story, by contrast, enlist the right hemisphere so that multiple connections between things happens organically. Metaphor, picture and story also assist in integrating new and nuanced information at the very onset of initial information sharing because these symbolic vehicles covey multi-leveled information simultaneously. Even more, going beyond words through metaphor, picture and story are dynamic tools that aid in just this kind of creative problem solving. Finally, metaphor, picture and story aid in retention of information. People simply remember them better than just words.

New Normal: Millennials Paving The Career Within

Millennials are changing the way we think about career fulfillment. They expect more intrinsic rewards from their careers than previous generations, and are willing to switch jobs more frequently. According to Forbes, "Job-hopping allows Millennials to have their say in the direction their career is going. They're the authors of their career narratives, and avoid preconceived assumptions about what their career advancement should look like..." They also are changing how work gets done, working more in teams and with technology.

Hear from a diverse panel of individuals, representing different Enneagram types from various walks of life. We will delve into how the Enneagram has helped them understand their greatest career strengths, and how the Enneagram helps them honor their own needs. Next, participate in an exercise to uncover your own career strengths and needs---to better guide you as you pave a path to greater fulfillment.

Experiencing 3 Centers: Moving, Thinking, Feeling Centers with Gurdjieff Movement

The presentation is designed to understand the function of the Moving, Thinking, and Feeling Centers. The proper role of the Moving Center is 'the Will to Live'. The Thinking Center represents the 'Will to See'. The Feeling Center plays a role in the 'Will to Be'. However, people only use One or Two Centers particularly, also they tend to indulge with One Center. My research is based on J.G.Bennett's work in the lineage of Gurdjieff.

Exercising the Gurdjieff movement, we can have a chance to experience the pure intelligence of each Center. Exercises are designed to emphasize the natural functions and the integration of Three Centers. Using sensation, counting, and music of the Gurdjieff Movement can show us to see how we all are indulged with One Center or Two Centers mostly. This presentation is meant to be experiential and a deep understanding of your Centers.

Nature or Nurture? Where did my personality come from? The Relationship of Temperament to Personality in Your Developing Children

Nature or Nurture? Where did my personality come from? The relationship of temperament to personality in your developing children. How understanding this connection can support parents in managing their own expectations and support their children in flourishing to be the best they can be.

During this workshop we will unpack the different temperament styles, as described by the researchers Thomas & Chess and see how they relate to the 9 Enneagram Types. Participants will learn how a child's brain develop and the relationship to emerging personality. They will discover the importance of not labelling or typing their children too early and how to understand the needs of each of the nine types that their child may be developing into and how to bring out the best of each.

Participants will leave with a greater understanding and a feeling of competence around supporting their children in thriving into the best versions of themselves.

To Type or Not to Type?

Is it ethical? Is it wise? is it even possible? Accurate typing of an individual's enneagram style is a complex balance of adequate knowledge, plenty of experience and an abundance of humility. It is not without its challenges and even the most experienced of teachers can make mistakes. We certainly have done our fair share of incorrect typing. We have also been involved in disagreement with our own assessment of our type and someone else's take on us.

In this presentation we would like to take a fresh, and hopefully useful, look at what we have learned around what works and does not work in typing people. Years of experience have made us look back critically, as well as with an open mind, at the often complicated and delicate process of identifying someone's Enneagram type.

Here are the main points we will cover in our presentation:

  • What might be unethical with typing another person?
  • Could it be wrong not to help someone clarify their dominant way of navigating through life?
  • What to do with someone who just does not find his/her type even though it seems pretty obvious to other fellow Enneagram-students?
  • Are we being too sensitive about the whole subject of our personality /ego- structure?
  • Where does the responsibility of an Enneagram teacher begin and end when someone is clearly not 'standing at the right bus stop'?



It would be an honor to share some of what we've learned through decades of experience with our colleagues. Our own mistakes have helped bring us to a place of either more accuracy in typing others or withholding our view and allowing a person to do their own journey.

Enneagram and Somatic Movement

Enneagram and Somatic movement is an integrated approach to learning and transformative experience. The original Enneagram teaching pointed out that the ego-type is rooted in our anatomy. The field of somatic concern the human ability to experience the body from within and becoming aware of ourselves. The main principle is that body, emotion and thought are an inseparable continuum, thus the mind is expressed through the body and the body through the mind.

Through specifics somatic practices of embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological and developmental principles we may observe and transform our mental, emotional and instinctual patterns. We may nail down the process of perception by which information are filtered, distorted, generalised, interpreted and acted upon. We discover how before being ordered into words, thoughts and emotions are often felt as pictures and movements. Movement is not just a form of expression, it is also as another sense to perceive the self and the environment. It can also be a pathway to facilitate changes in the relationship between body and mind. Movement patterning influences how we process information, express ourselves and function. Integrated ways of moving, feeling and thinking support the manifestation of higher level of consciousness.

The True Meaning of the Passions

"Like those rank weeds, which only a soil the most corrupt can nourish, the root of this baneful vice must be sought among the basest passions of the human heart-those that degrade our nature and are reproachful to our race. Hatred, jealousy, envy, treachery and wanton wickedness all unite in its propagation." (Samuel Walter Burges -"Historical Illustrations of the Origin and Progress of the Passions.")

In the process of typing, the true meaning of passions is usually overlooked. With statements "carved in stone" such as "Threes are competitive or "Twos are helpers", we lose the deeper meaning of how our shadow works, swimming on the surface of behaviors, which lead in time to a huge misunderstanding of the types and hence, mistyping.

In this session, Gonzalo & Gema will lead you on a journey through each one of the 9 passions 'definition and meaning, from Evagrius Ponticus to Oscar Ichazo, Claudio Naranjo, and The Sufis, going back to basics, making you work in your own passion with a life timeline.

Reaching Across the Enneagram into Race, Relationships and Reflexivity

This highly interactive session offers a straightforward, down-to-earth, gritty South African discussion about race and the Enneagram. Now, more than ever, the world needs to have these conversations to promote social justice. As Enneagram practitioners, we do not have the right or the luxury to bypass the current contextual reality around issues of race, equity, and inclusion.

The session explores our own relationship with race as practitioners, allowing us to also look at how these dynamics may play out for others. When we are able to work with their own racial identities and socialisation, we are then able to support others to process their reality and context and can avoid perpetuating racial wounding.

The session presents data collected through the AIM questionnaire, which combines Enneagram type measurement with a sentence completion methodology measuring vertical development. This offers a unique view of how maturity, Enneagram style and orientation to race intersect. We will also share verbatims and short case studies from conversations about racial issues with different Enneagram styles. This session is for people who care about societal change, honest conversation, inclusion and racial awareness in their Enneagram practice and personal development journeys.

Relationships Through the Lens of the Instinctual Biases

Relationships are central to our lives and can be the source of our happiness or sadness, but nurturing them can be hard work. In this session we will present a model of understanding relationships – those at home or those at work – through the Lens of the Instinctual Biases of the Enneagram.

Not only the nine Ennea-types provide an understanding of the different ways we approach life and hence relationships—the three Instinctual Biases help us understand the things we value in life over others, and that when people have different dominant Instinctual Biases their priorities differ:

  • Preservers are focused on “nesting and nurturing” and on ensuring that fundamental survival needs are met for things like food, water, clothing, shelter, and overall safety from harm.
  • Navigators are focused on “orienting to the group” and on building alliances, creating trust and reciprocity, and understanding how oneself and others fit into the group.
  • Transmitters are focused on “attracting and bonding” and on passing genes, beliefs, values, interests, and worldview to others in order to make them carriers of that information.



Understanding the instinctual Biases helps us to understand why we may get along with some people but have conflict with others, and we can use the simple-but-deep Awareness to Action Process with the Instinctual Biases to build on common ground, nurturing our relations by consciously create change in our narratives about them and our behaviors.

Alcanzando la esencia. (Reaching Your Essence)

You will understand how and why the ego or personality exists. You will discover that ego is not your enemy, its goal is to help you survive when you are unable to do it by yourself.

Based on proven Neuroscientific theories and with very simple examples I will explain how your ego was formed and how it is sustained by your brain, and what can you do to transform your life. You will understand the two modes of brain operation:

  • SURVIVAL MODE or ego mode
  • FUNCTIONAL MODE or essence mode



I will share with you my 3-step method, based on neuroscience and the Enneagram, to transform your life and that of your coachees.

I will present the results and some testimonials that we have obtained with the LIFE-360 program.

The Enneagram and the Nature of the Self--A Dialog Across Cultures

The concept of "self" hovers over our work with the Enneagram—people talk about finding themselves, finding their "true" or "authentic" self and how it is different from their "false" self, etc. But what do we really mean when we talk about the "self"? While this might seem like an abstract and philosophical question, the way we define such terms matters because our definitions and the way we approach these terms shapes our approach to the work we do to grow. This interactive session is part dialogue, part group exploration, and part instruction. The dialogue is between two people from dramatically different backgrounds and worldviews—one with a Western philosophical and scientific point of view, the other steeped in traditional Indian wisdom. They will share how their first exchange of ideas at a conference in Paris led to an ongoing conversation that uncovered unexpected commonalities of perspective. They will explain how the way some people talk about "true" and "false" selves is inconsistent with many spiritual traditions and modern science and can actually impede our work on ourselves. Finally, they will show how rejecting this dualism and adopting an approach of embracing our complex and conflicted nature can be the foundation for growth.

The Hidden Lever: Exploring Failure as a Path to Development

A strong aversion to failure is commonly associated with Type 3s, but every type has a relationship with this powerful human experience, which is part of our brain's hardwired process of learning. This workshop will explore how the Enneagram can help us uncover barriers and levers to growth through understanding the unique patterns each type develops in the "before, during and after" of failure — anticipating, experiencing and learning (or not). We will share the neuroscience of experiencing a sense of failure. Participants will learn type-based practices to harness the power of failure for development for personal application and with clients.

Reaching Across Race: Enhancing the Enneagram's Inclusiveness as a Place to Begin

We are not truly free to thrive until everyone is free to thrive- until we all feel safety and support to be, express, and love who and what we love. We know this, yet billions of people on our planet are not as free as those identified with a dominant culture.

This will be an honest unplugged conversation in which grief, rage, love and potential are welcome - first between the panelists, and then with the Conference community. The Enneagram can guide individuals to liberate oppressed and locked parts of themselves to live an authentic and fully expressed life. It is one of the most powerful tools on the planet for creating equitable community, where all are valued. Social Equity Leaders are now using the Enneagram in powerful and (r)evolutionary ways to address the “othering” that happens through “isms” such as racism, sexism, colonialism, ageism, and gender expression, sexual orientation, political identity and more.

The Enneagram community must also examine its own biases, shadows, and misconceptions so we can contribute to ending oppression of all kinds and creating a world of interdependent honoring, caring and support of ALL.

In this session the panelists will each explore these topics from the lens of their own experience of race, gender, sexual orientation and culture. Then we will open a dialogue with the conference community.

• Building conscious and liberated community by supporting the evolution of consciousness with the Enneagram

• Decolonizing the self and relationships: liberating internalized oppression

• Building resilience from the scars of oppression and violence - riding the waves of awareness about racial injustice in 2020 and 2021

Unfolding Presence: Reaching Across The Levels Of Development

The Levels of Functioning describe how we mature within our Type. The key to that maturation is Presence, a quality of being fully in the moment and dropping into a quiet mind and an open heart. In this experiential presentation, we will explore how to access Presence through guided exercises for inhabiting the three Centers of Intelligence - Belly, Heart and Head.

From the perspective of attuned Presence, we will investigate the Levels of Functioning as true Developmental stages, beginning with Level 9 in infancy and moving through the developmental stages of childhood and adolescence up to average adult functioning at Level 5. An exercise for moving from Level 4 to Levels 3 will reveal the path of spiritual development using the Enneagram as a guide. That exercise can serve as a foundation for ongoing spiritual growth.

Along the way, we will explore how interrupted development, from the absence of Presence, creates immature and dysfunctional attitudes and behavior in adults, expressed as Enneagram fixations and passions.

The experiential exercises in this presentation are relevant for coaches and teachers to apply in their own work using the Enneagram with clients and students.

Working With Enneagram Self-Images

Someone's experience of their Enneagram style is multi-sensory, especially when they are reacting from the low side of their style. There is an underlying body feeling, typical emotions, a story we tell ourselves and imagery that express our self-image and unconscious picture of "the world." Working with imagery is especially useful for changing compulsive fixated reactions and outgrowing the defensive limits of your Enneagram style.

Our self-image is deeply unconscious and attached to memories, roles, habitual emotions. It even has a body location. In the trance of our Enneagram style we are attached to our image and unconsciously believe we don't exist without it. Some overdefended compulsive behavior is an attempt to maintain this historical picture of ourselves, despite the fact that the world around us keeps changing.

In this session we will explore, identify and experience how we maintain self-images related to our Enneagram styles. You will learn how to reduce their influence, evoke the gifts and strengths of your style and live more freely in the present.

Suitable for Enneagram students, coaches, counselors, therapists, as well as anyone wanting to use the Enneagram to grow and change.

Inspiring Women to Show Up (Authentically) Using the Enneagram

This session is for both men and women; for all those who want to explore ways to continue contributing to craft the role of women in society, making the most out of their participation in the different domains they are part of. But doing so in a way that feels authentic to them. That they don't need to pretend to be someone they are not, in terms of gender, Ennea-type, etc.

During this session we will dive into the narratives of women of each type, exploring how they see the expectations society has of them, their own, and how they see themselves. In groups by type, participants will explore their stories related to these expectations. We will then look at those stories and identify the Enneagram-related conflicts and contradictions that arise in them.

The second part of the session will address the contradictions created by these narratives and how we can learn to manage and work with, rather than against, them.

People will leave the session with a deeper understanding of the narratives of women of each type and with ideas on how to create space for women to continue contributing to society in an authentic way.

The Enneagram as A Doorway to Your Emotional Mastery

Your "Emotional Mastery Blueprint," the pie chart of your EQ Quiz, is based on the Enneagram. It illuminates at a glance how much and how little you have of the gifts and challenges of all the Enneagram types.

More than just determining your type, it illustrates how all of your scores influence each other and impact you. The result is either empowering, bringing ease and flow to your life, or disempowering, causing stress and struggle, again and again. When you see these relationships, your Blueprint becomes a guide to the next steps in your growth.

When you combine this with learning how to create new neural pathways for the change you want, change becomes easy.

You will stand up and move. A "light" experience of EnneaMotion will guide you in embodying some of the gifts and some of the challenges or "Whammies" that can get in your way. Drawing from my Somatic Focusing coaching practice, you will create new neural pathways to break through any Whammies and embody a mental, emotional and physical shift towards ease in living the life you want.

The Enneagram then becomes a doorway to your Emotional Mastery and a life with wholeness, ease and joy.

What is the Sensation of that? Somatic Awareness and the Enneagram

Are we allowing the full range of our human experience? How would our life be enhanced when we develop our capacity to access a full experience? From an early age, our thoughts, emotions, and ideas begin as sensory experience in the body. As our language and cognitive abilities develop, this fuller range of sensory response narrows to recognizable and predictable concepts and labels like love, joy, anger, fear. Over time we only experience the more patterned sensations associated with these labels. As our sensory abilities narrow, so does our capacity to respond to life from a broader field of depth, and presence. We often fall into habitual reactions which may not be in alignment with what is occurring in the moment. This workshop will explore how to stay present with the sensations of the body. Participants will be invited into experiencing the tissue correlations of the Instinctual Variants (Self Preservation, Sexual, and Social) and introduce participants to the 5 steps of alignment. All this to access our full experience of any moment. With this increased capacity to stay present, participants will observe personal patterns in their sensory reactions connected to their Enneagram Type. Come and play with Brian and Devon.

Awareness & Awakening Through Metaphors - Elicit Your Own Internal Metaphors (often Enneagram themed) for Deep Wisdom and Solutions

Most of us know that metaphors are great for communicating ideas, but did you know that they are also great for allowing your subconscious to bring important understandings into consciousness? Metaphors are how we code experience. Our deepest wisdom about situations is held metaphorically in our psyches and influence our approach to problems and goal achievement.

If you think of a problem as a barrier, you'll want "breakthrough" strategies. If you think you need to "get to the bottom of it," you'll "dig deeper". If you think you're "drowning", you'll hope for a life preserver. If you feel "stuck," you'll try to get "unstuck" to "move forward". If your metaphor and strategies are mismatched, you won't get very far. Similarly, in a relationship, if one of you thinks you're starving in a desert, and the other feels "swamped", a satisfactory joint resolution is not likely. In this fun session, you'll discover how inner metaphors work. We'll elicit people's metaphors as examples with Enneagram themes. You'll explore your own subjective experience in new ways and discover the power of eliciting metaphors in all life situations. Expect a lot of "ah-ha's" during the session, and even more in the days that follow.

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - Understanding Self and Others

Have you ever thought, "Why do I do what I do?" When it comes to decision making - are you ruled by your heart, your head or your gut? All three play a factor yet one will dominate your personality. Little has been presented on the Enneagram to show the system in a more accessible form using easy English and info graphics.

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - has taken the complex theories of the Enneagram, added insights of modern science, then translated them into an easy-to understand methodology which introduces a three-step practice that forms the basis of The Integration Movement. This practice helps you to understand your own Path of Purpose.

The session will also explore how peoples different core potencies connect and the value this adds to achieving both personal and organisational goals.

Building on psychological studies that reveal three different styles of connecting, we align these styles with the WID core potencies to explore the WID Connectivity Styles. Individuals that understand their motivations, become teams that understand each other, and in turn create outcomes with each other. WID enables people who think differently, act together, to achieve common outcomes.

NINE Sapiens: Biology & Evolution of Personality Types

What is the origin of your Personality type? Did it have a purpose in the history of human evolution? Have we discovered the biological mechanisms that might explain our differences? To what extent are we "nature" or "nurture"? What are the implications of these issues to our own possibility to change and develop as human beings?

This presentation will invite you to explore the connections between the Enneagram and some of the most recent discoveries in the fields of Neuroscience, Behavioural Genetics and Evolutionary Psychology. You will be introduced to some of the most likely biological foundations of our personality types, and how they might have emerged in our evolutionary history, through an interaction between the genetic heritage of our species and the changing demands of our environment.

You will explore your type as an "adaptive strategy" from an evolutionary perspective and what this means in terms of your own coping strategies today. You will discover the possibilities that "neuroplasticity" brings to your own evolution as an individual. You will participate in a discussion about the implications of these findings for ourselves and our self-development. And above all, you will be surprised by a totally new perspective on the Enneagram model.

From your “Home Base” Type to your “Soul Child”

This is an innovative experiential work to discover the “Soul Child”, the way it operates in each Type, meet it and embrace its inner structure.

The session is based upon work on the Enneagram symbol on the floor, through a specifically designed exercise, inspired from both the Life Script and the Family Constellation techniques.

From a slightly different understanding of the “Inner flow” and the Enneagram arrows, the “Soul Child”, named after A. H. Almaas and developed by Sandra Maitri is basically a part of us that was not held or allowed to develop at a very young age. It remained immature at an Ennapoint while our personality grew to the following point in reaction to it. It is a deeper layer within our personality structure that retains access to Essence.

Finding this Soul child and reaching out to it allows us to get in contact with the Essential Qualities, that were essentially available to us before their light was dim by the personality.

The Enneagram and Human Sexuality

For thousands of years, sexuality and fertility formed the foundation for any spiritual belief and practice. This connection with nature was replaced by world religions, which focus on patriarchal values and repressing the forces of nature instead. The enneagram of personalities teaches us to get back in touch with our True Nature, but few dare to break the taboo on sexuality and admit that humans are sexual beings. Indeed, the understanding of human sexuality of most people in our 'advanced' civilisation is based on patriarchal stereotypes, which all too often run opposite to both ancient spiritual teachings and modern-day scientific research. The enneagram explains how our cognitive mind gives meaning to events or behaviour that have no inherent meaning apart from a biological-evolutionary function of survival. This also applies to human sexuality, with our motivations for sexual interaction depending on our specific worldview or lack of harmony between the different instinctual drives. The enneagram can explain why couples may feel sexually incompatible, why people stray, why we may feel a lack of satisfaction, etc. Understanding these aspects of sexuality should not justify certain behaviour but rather increase our empathy and invite for a mature dialogue instead of demonising the other.

Enneagram Styles And 18 Maladaptive Schemas

This presentation will explore 5 basic emotional needs for: secure attachments; autonomy/competence/identity; freedom to express needs and emotions; spontaneity/play; and realistic limits/self-control.

If these 5 core emotional needs are not sufficiently met, we might fashion 18 maladaptive schemas grouped under these 5 areas.

  • Under the domain of disconnection and rejection are the maladaptive schemas of: abandonment/instability; mistrust/abuse; emotional deprivation; defectiveness/shame; social isolation/alienation.
  • Under the domain of impaired autonomy and performance are: dependence/incompetence; vulnerability to harm; enmeshment; failure.
  • Under the domain of impaired limits are: entitlement/grandiosity; insufficient self-control;
  • Under the domain of other-directedness are: subjugation; self-sacrifice; approval-recognition seeking.
  • And under the domain of overvigilance and inhibition are: negativity/pessimism; emotional inhibition; unrelenting standards; punitiveness.



What’s not to love here? We’ll see what research has shown about which enneagram types prefer which maladaptive schemas. And we’ll consider alternate adaptive schemas to replace these not-so-helpful ones.

Reaching Across Traditions: A Tribute to Retired IEA Founder Helen Palmer & The Enduring Power of our Narratives to Unite and Transform Us

During the endnote session of this virtual gathering, we take the opportunity to honor the legacy of Helen Palmer, the recently retired co-founder of the Narrative Enneagram school with Dr. David Daniels, IEA co-founder and bestselling author. For over 45 years, Palmer’s goal — to integrate sound psychology with spiritual method using the Enneagram map — has remained constant.

What started out as a group of forty individuals in Palmer’s living room in the early 70s, over time, expanded to thousands of people who have recognized their types by seeing and hearing panelists talk about their lives. When we share our personal experiences and sacred narratives in a field of compassionate presence, our souls grow and we can more easily experience the shared humanity in each of us. As we listen to the stories and notice the non-verbals of speakers on a type panel, the Enneagram becomes three-dimensional – our minds gain insight and understanding, our hearts are touched, and our bodies experience the energies of the types.

Host Ginger Lapid-Bogda and presenters Peter O’Hanrahan and Terry Saracino connect our roots to our future leading us in conversation with stories from Palmer herself about the history of the IEA and development of the Narrative method. Special guests will share memories of Helen and her impact in this community. O’Hanrahan and Saracino will offer brief teachings and a breakout group with the global community of live attendees. We hope you’ll join us!

Enneagram and Personal Power© - Reaching across the self-realization with the Enneagram

The goal of "Enneagram and Personal Power©", we would like to present is the result of combining the Enneagram, a universal powerful tool for understanding the human being with "The Keys to Personal Power Management three A©", and" the Star of Self-realization©" both designed by me. This is the result of ten years' work observation and experience with Enneagrams in business contexts, training and coaching more than 1,000 persons, and the wish to offer an operational tool to foster personal development in professional contexts where effective and efficient results are required. "The Enneagram of Personal Power©" describes the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that each ennea-types must promote to develop every competencies that allow to reach self-realization. This model, used in coaching and training contexts, helps professionals, in a simple way, to understand the work to have to be done to free their talent — to connect to their Self- and to find easier to remember what to do always - Consciousness. In short, it is a model that aims to bring the spiritual world within the business world in an understandable and practical way to perform.

This model used for almost a year in business contexts has been successfully presented one times in Congress of Enneagram.

The Geometrical Beauty of the Enneagram Symbol

The true beauty of the Enneagram is the fact that it´s a useful and powerful tool for personal growth and development. But also, the symbol itself and its brilliant geometrical construction and inherent mathematical symmetry in fact holds quite a bit of beauty, too.

This session is about the mathematical beauty embedded in the Enneagram an consists of three parts, each corresponding to one of the three elements of the Enneagram symbol, the circle, the triangle and the sequence of the numbers 1,4,2,8,5 and 7.

Some of the visible and the invisible geometrical formations and numerical sequences in the Enneagram will be shown along with the magic of the number nine, the core number of the Enneagram. Furthermore, the Fibonacci sequence, the sphere and the platonic solids and their connection to the Enneagram symbol will be discussed.

Participants of the workshop will also find out three ways of constructing/designing the Enneagram symbol with compasses, ruler and protractor.

Reaching Beyond the Ego to Wisdom... with the "Enneagram Approach"

This presentation will focus on the journey towards wisdom through the Essential Enneagram Approach (by Cris Bolívar), a comprehensive and integrated vision that accompanies our alchemical journey towards harmonization, a transpersonal philosophical-psycho-spiritual view for transformation, development of spirituality and consciousness. The Essential Enneagram Approach is the application of the principles of Essentiality with a focus on wisdom.

Throughout the presentation, the transpersonal process will be revealed from the egotype, the healing of the wound, the enneatypes, the completeness of the Being, the holy ideas towards wisdom.

For this, key concepts of Essentiality and Alchemy will be contributed, with their nigredo, albedo and rubedo phases and what they represent in the journey of transmutation of the Being, relating them to the laws and the different levels and stages of the Being of the Sufi Enneagram.

With an active methodology, reflections, debate, meditations, examples, applications and useful tools will be interwoven both for personal development and to accompany others through Essential Coaching. A presentation aimed at discovering powerful and innovative elements of the Essentiality, revealing and inspiring both for Enneagram experts and for people who are new to it.

The Enneagram and 2 Personality Organizing Principles: Relational Needs and Basic Life Scripts

This presentation will address the correlation between the Enneagram types and their predominant Relational Needs and the correlation of Basic Life Scripts with the triads.

The Relational Needs are based on Richard Erskine’s (Integrative psychotherapist) work where he describes 8 relational needs and to which I have added the 9th (with his consent) in order to correlate each enneatype with a predominant relational need.

  • Need for security
  • Feeling valued
  • Feeling accepted
  • Mutuality
  • Self definition
  • Making an impact
  • Initiating
  • Expressing care and affection and the need for respect



The Basic Life Scripts are based on Transactional Analysis and specifically on Claude Steiner’s Book “Scripts People live” where he concludes there are 3 Basic Life scripts which I will correlate with the triads:

  • Lovelessness or no love script (Depression)
  • Mindlessness no Mind script: (Confusion/Madness)
  • Joylessness or No joy Script (Substance Abuse)



I will present the theory with power point and provide written material to participants so they can identify themselves individually. Then they will contrast their finding in breakout groups by triad and enneatype, followed by Q&A.

Integrating the Original Teaching of the Enneagram with Modern Practices

What if we could combine the new modern way of using the Enneagram with the original wisdom of the Enneagram without losing anything but instead enriching the way we engage with the Enneagram and what if we could reach across time bringing the earlier practical mindset of Gurdjieff and Ichazo into our present and future only to broaden the understanding of ourselves and the community we live in. In this workshop you will be introduced to some of the original mindset about the Enneagram, where the focus was less "How do I find my type?" and more "How do I integrate all 9 Points in my personal development?". We will explore the unique psychological and spiritual openings from each Point, and examine how every Point has profound human qualities to be explored no matter what type you can relate to.

If you are new to the Enneagram you will discover a more flexible approach to the Enneagram, while more experienced enthusiasts will explore new practical ways of integrating the original teaching in their personal practices, teaching or coaching.

The Antiracist Enneagram Framework

Our work around our Enneagram type can be powerful in dismantling white supremacy and creating equity. Antiracism is a commitment to actively doing your personal work around topics of power, oppression, and privilege. The intersections between our own personal Enneagram type work and our identity work give us rich fodder for this commitment.

Looking at the culture of whiteness (the construct), the ways we've been socialized, and the work around our Enneagram type can help us create a new world of equity. Exploring embodied reactivity through the instincts, the emotional reactivity through the passions, the mental reactivity through the fixations, and the protections found in the defense mechanisms gives us a framework for deeper antiracism work.

This presentation will review a framework used with clients who are setting the foundation for their antiracism journey, utilizing the Enneagram transform their inner work to their work in the world.

Welcoming What's Here: Developing Emotional Wisdom with the Enneagram

Each enneatype has classic emotional tendencies and coping strategies. Sometimes these strategies work pretty well for us, but often we see ways they create trouble for us and others.

Emotions are essential for our heart's compass and well-being. However, most of us struggle to be with our aversive emotions (sadness, fear, anger). We may over-identify with our feelings or want to get away from them as quickly as possible. This has us miss out on their transformative potential.

Learning how to navigate emotions in a way that helps understand them and allow them to move through us can be life-changing. Even emotions that have had us feeling vulnerable or helpless in the past have the potential to be important allies for our soul.

You will learn practices to host your emotions consciously— with respect and care, but not indulgence. You will learn to shift toward having your emotions instead of letting them have you.

Through lecture, exercises and discussion, you will expand your capacity to transform emotional reactivity and avoidance into alignment, healing, and fuel for change. Using our three centers, let's reach beyond our usual strategies to experience ourselves in fresh, generative ways!

"Reaching Across..." includes reaching out across the depths and dimensions of our being and our psyche. Within this session, we'll explore the transpersonal nature of the Enneagram symbol using mat work. This technique incorporates systemic constellation, the Enneagram and the Holy Ideas & Virtues. The Enneagram symbol contains access to the universal language of the collective unconscious. Within it, we can access numerous aspects that make up our human and spiritual experience. Using the spiral movement that I personally experienced through levels of development and consciousness, I applied this onto the mat using the client's personal triangle.

Within this session, attendees will be; given a step-by-step demonstration to use the technique The Spiral Staircase©; introduced to effective affirmations that can be used for each type at the various stages of the process, and will be guided through a meditation using a similar method but for personal guidance, an excellent substitute for group work.

How Project Manager will be Reaching Across Projects Successfully by Understanding Instinctual Biases

The success or failure of a project is often the result of its the Project Manager. They're professionals who must have extensive knowledge in project management, but they must also have great skills in management and team building, to achieve the expected results, on time, with the required quality at the lowest cost in order to obtain the greatest benefit. Therefore, for organizations are becoming more and more important to have Project Managers who are better prepared to deal with challenges and people.

With my personal experience, I've realized how useful it's to use instinctual biases in order to develop and obtain the maximum performance in the Project teams.

The knowledge of the instinctual biases allows us to be able to identify the possible strengths and weaknesses of our teams, where they'll over focus their attention and what they'll neglect. Moreover, it'll allow us to handle more efficiently our coaching sessions and managing better any possible conflicts that may appear during the Project.

Attendees will leave the session with a practical knowledge of how Project Managers be reaching across projects successfully by understanding instinctual biases for leading project teams.

As an Enneagram teacher, registered psychologist and a musician, Bernadette wanted to create a Enneagram resource with a bit of a difference; something informative, that at the same time was dynamic, entertaining and hopefully appealing to a new generation of Enneagram enthusiasts. She wanted to create a resource that helps to simplify the core messages each of us needs to hear in order to emerge from the fog created by the limiting personality patterns of our minds and to put these messages to music so that they can be easily accessed when needed.

This is an album of nine unique songs that aim to capture, in both the lyrics and the music itself, the essence of each of the personality styles described in the Enneagram. The songs are experiential in nature - as we immerse ourselves in the music, listen to the lyrics and deeply follow the messages to which they are pointing, we can actually move closer to the present moment and into expansive awareness.

These songs take us on a musical journey through the different mental and emotional structures that are so profoundly described in the Enneagram, allowing us to experience, contemplate and feel into each part of the whole and the different pathways to presence that are available to us all. https://bernadettegalea.com/music-vidoes

Bernadette is currently residing in Australia, seeing clients through her online psychology private practice, Essential Nature, and writing and recording more music with the hope of spreading love, light and higher consciousness in any way she can across the globe.

Behaviors During and After Confinement, An Opportunity to Create Literary Characters

We are living a world crisis that has created uncertainty in all human beings and nobody has escaped to it's consequences. Due to this crisis, we all have developed certain behaviors originated from fear, sadness and anger and as we know not everybody experiences the actual reality the same way and they are related to our three intelligences according to the Enneagram and the way, depending in our personality, one particular emotion provokes certain behaviors. Thus, not all of us has the same survival strategy because each reality can be different and can be seen and lived in a different way. And it could as well, be an opportunity to understand each one's way of dealing with uncertainty. On the other hand, regarding the literary world, this could be an opportunity to create characters taking in consideration the different behaviors and survival strategies coming from the Enneagram personalities and to be aware the way each one of us has created a novel of our lives in which we play the main character created from a survival strategy face to adversity.

Bridging the Gap: How to Connect With Someone Who Is Suffering

People are overwhelmed with life and work stresses and difficulties. Normal challenges are compounded by undue amounts of secondary stressors, like the pandemic with its rippling affect into every facet of life. Many feel disconnected.

High levels of stress eventually call us to find more adaptive ways to connect to others, reduce our suffering, and the suffering others.

One area of the Enneagram, the Instinctual Biases, offers a powerful understanding of how we interact with others based on what we value, care about, where our attention goes and behaviors follow. By clearly understanding how these three biases work in us, we learn how or when our habits of thought and behavior are useful, or possibly un-useful. We can then cultivate our natural strengths and make any desired changes so we feel better and ultimately connect in more satisfying ways.

During this session, we'll explore the nature of the Instinctual Biases and the stories we create connected to these biases, to understand more clearly how they enhance or limit our connections. In the second part of the session, we'll identify areas of desired change and simple tools to begin incremental steps towards reaching out to others in more connected, adaptive ways.

Can I give you some feedback?

Organizations are embracing agile ways of working in all aspects of their operations. It's not just for software development anymore. In order for agile to work, an environment of constant feedback and input is required. Unfortunately, no one has yet to crack the feedback nut, and most organizations' efforts in this arena are proving less than fruitful. This workshop will review existing "best practices" in feedback techniques and identify organizational cultures that promote or hinder their effective use. We will then beam into Enneagram type breakout rooms to have each type group discuss the methods that work best for them to give and receive feedback, and why. We'll beam back into the main room to report out each Enneagram type group's findings and discuss implications for how to implement these learnings into feedback processes in the squads, work product teams, ad pods that abound in agile cultures.

Grit to Great(er), a Tool for the Empowerment of the Homeless and those in Generational Poverty

The Enneagram is a powerful tool that unlocks for many both what we offer the world and how we get in the way of that offering. Over the past several years we have shared the Enneagram with both the homeless community and people in generational poverty through the unique workshop, Grit to Great(er), and have witnessed this same unlocking.

Join us as we share the impact of increased self-awareness, personal regard, and future visioning that has resulted in marginalized communities through this unique Enneagram workshop that has the power to impact social justice and societal change in our communities. Explore with us what adjustments are needed of us as a profession as the Enneagram footprint is being extended beyond traditional lines. There will be opportunity throughout the session for both Q&A, but more importantly robust discussion around this innovative application of the Enneagram and what adjustments it asks of us.

What is Your Soul Type?: Exploring the Enneagram of Soul

Many of us do spiritual work on the deepest levels possible. called soul work, the process of knowing our innermost being is an immense undertaking. many of us immersed in spiritual work, are focused on the level of personality. But our truest identity is far beneath the ego and the personality. Our truest identity is our soul.

When we know the qualities that compose our soul and how we manifest them or not, we have a greater understanding of what our deepest inner work must address.

In this presentation, you will find and experience the unique qualities of your own soul through lecture, teaching, guided imagery, visual aids, video and interactive discussion, you will understand the nine soul types as well as the Enneagram of soul. Applications for soul types and the Enneagram of soul will be presented for the individual and for collectives.

If we know our souls, we know what motivates us on our deeest levels, and if we reconnect with our essential nature and goodness we see the way to peace. Reaching across from ego to soul is a game changer for our way of moving and perceiving the world. And that amazing "reach" enables us to understand, to communicate with and to affirm our fellow souls wherever on earth they may be. This workshop is based on the work of Dr. Joe Howell in his new book, Know Your Soul: Journeying with the Enneagram into Inner and Outer Peace, Crossroad Publishers. In Press.

Beyond Duality: Strengthening the Capacity for Connection and Communion

The state of Unity and the realization that we are all inherently connected dominates spiritual teachings. Oneness is contained within the Enneagram symbol itself. But what allows this teaching to become real and integrated? What is it that blocks this experience and what supports it? We might start by asking "Who is the one connecting?" and "What does one connect from?" Thus, this session focuses on heart consciousness.

The emerging body of work named EnneaCrossings(TM) integrates two powerful symbols that reflect the spiritual journey: the Enneagram and the cross-cultural cross. This integrative symbol helps us move toward less self as we have known it and toward non-duality and interconnectedness. It includes four intersections between our horizontal (finite) and vertical (Infinite) natures. For this session, we focus on the intersection of Communion which links Enneagram points 7 and 2 and connects directly with the heart center.

You are invited to use a personally relevant question as a reflective touchstone throughout this session which includes lecture, meditation, inquiry and somatic awareness. The ever-present dynamic of push-pull between our finite and Infinite natures is especially evident in the heart center, along with the potential for reconciliation.

The Inner Observer : Cognitive Science, Adult Ego Development and Mysticism

In this session we will explore the nature of the inner observer from perspectives in cognitive science, adult ego psychology and mysticism, discovering what it is thought to be, evidence for why developing the capacity for self-observation is so beneficial, and some of the practices that are found to most enhance it.

As Enneagram teachers, coaches and practitioners, how is a self-reading system like the Enneagram, a map and a mirror of the psyche, helpful in cultivating self-observation (from meta-cognition to interoception), and where do we need to find processes to meet its content and avoid the pitfalls of getting stuck in typology?

This session draws on my PhD research in this field, and will involve a presentation as well as experiential processes to access and experientially explore different inner states.

Exploring Different Enneagram Type Pairings, Reaching Across To A Partner or Loved One in Conflict

Exploring Enneagram pairings when in conflict/stress and giving them tools to benefit their conflict resolution. Types covered will be, types 7 and 9, types 1 and 6, types 4 and 8 and types 2 and 5, types 3 and 6. It will be a beginning discussion to give any combination of pairing a deepened communication skill set. When we meet the need of the other and of ourselves we begin to deal with the cause not the just symptom or behavior. We would use the wisdom of the Enneagram to deal with the deeper cause of the problem. I will cover in "general" some ways (learned in marriage preparation facilitation retreat work,) to achieve authentic intimacy skills for all 9 types and "specific" ideas for the Enneagram pairs that would benefit their conflict resolution work. Other good contributions would be added in the discussion part of the format, because there is always wisdom in the group . We will look at specific security and stress states within 2 types and use Enneagram wisdom, and practice to work the problem through. For example we will name the passion that may have a hold on the type in stress or conflict as well as their blindspot and give ways to work through their blindspot and passion. For example type 9 Peaceful mediator may miss that they were "ignoring type 7 all week," so says type 7, but with type 9 naming and owning their own passion of sloth/withdrawal and blindspot-avoidance of conflict may see or be reminded of their truth and state of stress. With type 7 naming and owning the passion of gluttony (allota much) and blindspot of avoiding limits, as their stress reaction, they see how they may have contributed to the conflict (how it happened,) and can go for a win -win. I'd like to present scenarios showing insights for problem solving for the specific pairs and open it up for discussion. 60% presentation, 30% discussion and 10% experiential writing exercise processing the conflict using new found awareness and aligned centers of head heart and gut.

Couples Relationships: Reaching Your Partner Through the Enneagram

Do you experience frustrating relationship patterns with your partner? Would you like to learn how to improve communication and conflict resolution by understanding and shifting type habits? When partners in a couple struggle to reach each other, it's often because they are running up against the limitations of their Enneagram type. This presentation will focus on two angles: Areas of growth specific to your Enneagram type for true fulfillment in your relationship, as well as ways to reach your partner in accordance with the habits of their type.

This presentation will explore:

  • Common communication patterns that arise in relationship with each type, and how to manage them.
  • How the habits of each type intend to facilitate relationship satisfaction, but instead inadvertently create the opposite result: relationship dissatisfaction.
  • Strategies to reach your partner via understanding the lens of your- as well as their- Enneagram Type
  • The development needed for each Enneagram type within the couple, supporting higher levels of health individually and within the relationship.

Psychological Bypassing and the Repression of the Sublime: What Psychosynthesis Can Contribute to Enneagram Theory and Practice

This intermediate workshop will introduce participants to the phenomena of psychological and spiritual bypassing, how they differ and interact, and how they impact our Enneagram theory and practice. We will review materials from John Welwood, Robert A. Masters and other transpersonal psychologists to understand spiritual bypassing and why it has been such a hot topic of discussion these past 25 yrs. Then we will look at Roberto Assagioli and his psychospiritual system known as Psychosynthesis in order to better understand what has become known in some circles as psychological bypassing, which is a "tendency to get overly fascinated with and absorbed in our own personal process. It can be so fascinating to delve into our emotions, archetypes, dreams or relationships... To treat this kind of self-examining as the ultimate journey is to risk becoming narcissistic, a kind of'emotional junkie'..." Special emphasis will be on the famous Egg Diagram of the human psyche by Assagioli, as well as his descriptions of the Higher and Lower Unconscious, and how we may, for various reasons, dynamically repress the Higher Unconscious to our detriment. We will discuss the possibility that we may have an "enlightenment drive" (Almaas and Maitri) and "metaphysical instincts" (Shirazi).

Reaching Across from the Zoo to the Jungle

"Most of us were trained in a zoo, but we operate in a jungle" (Sonja Blignaut).

VUCA is not a theory anymore. Our Schools and Universities prepare us for a predictable world of business strategy and project plans. We are trained for "order". Our office buildings, bureaucratic hierarchies, org design structures look like Zoos, even Coffee stations has a designated place. We have a 10-year business plan, but we do not know what will happen next week is our new reality. The jungle (Covid 19) crossed over to our "ordered" cities, businesses, schools, and way of living. Our ordered Zoo life has been challenged.

However, in a jungle, we instinctively know we have to look after ourselves (watch where we step), have one on one relationships (connect with individual others) and participate in Groups (if not, I am food). I will share examples of how the Enneagram Instincts are all dancing harmoniously in natural ecosystems and what it means for effective human systems.

This session will also explore how an Increased level of mindfulness and a good understanding of Complex Adaptive system principles (jungle), enable us to Thrive, not just Survive in a new normal.

Your 9 Goddesses - Reaching Across your Inner Power

Through a card deck with a graphic universe loaded with symbolism and in which we have captured years of study and work with the Enneagram, we want to provide a practical tool, that allows women that are just starting to walk their path of personal development and those professionals that work with women and want to incorporate this information on their profesional practices, to explore and develop the nine dimensions or goddesses that live within each woman, so they can access new ways of seeing the world, enhance their skills and integrate their gifts to live a more fulfilling life.

Within this symbolic universe, each goddess belongs to an element or energy center (fire = instinct, water = emotions, air = mind), has an animal that represents the goddess strategy, a flower that representes what that goddess has to offer to those around her in terms of her gifts and virtues, an object that represent the holy ideas, and a crystal that allow the woman to connect with the essence of the goddess.

Your Vitality Personality : A Map to Self-Actualization

Your Vitality Personality is the highest expression of your EnneaType. It is the antidote to your unconscious "Ego-Driven" compulsion toward self-sabotage. It frees you to choose "Consciousness-Directed" behaviors that generate vitality - the joyful state of physical, mental and spiritual well being. Your ego is your survival mechanism, driving behavior that creates conflict and destruction. This is your default wiring -- when you are unaware of yourself, your ego automates your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Your Higher Consciousness is the real you—a powerful, eternal energetic being. In regularly connecting with this aspect of yourself, you become your best self, which heals, restores, and uplifts you. The journey moving out of Ego-Driven and into Consciousness-Directed behavior is the process of awakening. It is not necessarily easy or fast. And yet, coming awake to yourself is the only way out of a painful existence, and is the most empowering, exciting work you will ever do.

Learn more about your EnneaType's inherent Ego-Driven Survival Belief, Compulsion, and Survival Behavior, which combine to create your specific Sabotage Pattern...and how to free yourself from these through embracing your Consciousness-Directed Vital Truth, Liberation, and Vitality Behavior, creating a new life of vitality that serves your Highest Purpose.

Parenting with Presence: Transforming Difficult Parenting Moments into Opportunities for Spiritual and Psychological Growth

Parents are ready to move away from authoritarian and permissive models of parenting towards relationship-based models that focus on healthy attachment and connection. Great parents know that a culture of connection in the home is built on a foundation of Presence. The Enneagram reveals what blocks our capacity to be present to our children and how our parenting "blind spots" prohibit the very connection we seek. The Enneagram also helps us to answer the question, "Who is showing up to parent — YOU — or your personality pattern?" As we learn to be more Present, we come into contact with our own inner adult or "Essence Parent", the part of us that has the capacity to hold not only our own big reactions with compassion, but our children's big feelings as well. This compassionate holding and awareness starts to soften our personality's contractions and allows us to grow into the leaders we most want to be as parents. Real life examples will be given of parents who have used the Enneagram to create deeper connections with their children, to heal their own lost childhood messages, and to transform difficult parenting moments into opportunities for spiritual and psychological growth.

Reaching New Heights in Your Golf Game by Understanding Your Unconscious Patterns and Finding Your Sweet Spots

Golf is a sport that requires great strength of mind as well as great skill. Many golfing experts agree that the golf game is 90% mental yet the majority of practice by golfers is working on their swing technique at the driving range. As Bobby Jones says; "Golf is a game that is played on a five-inch course — the distance between your ears."

This is where the Enneagram comes to the fore! By helping golfers understand the unconscious patterns that prevent them from playing their best golf allows each individual to begin to increase their self- awareness and ultimately their self-mastery. Each type appears on the golf course in different ways, different things trigger them and their reactivity is more easily understood. By working with groups and individuals to understand themselves better their golf will ultimately improve.

This presentation will introduce new concepts and data gained from research done with over 60 golfers.

Reaching Across Growth Beyond Type

Perhaps working only on Type Egofixations we are limiting our seeking. What if we discover we have to work on other shadows than the fixation corresponding only to our Type? When we understand the multidimensional System the Enneagram is, we can trace richer paths of transformation. In this session we will explore 2 dimensions of personality and discover what potential Egofixations could have settled down in our personality according to our balanced or unbalanced energy flows (Naranjo´s Polarities), or according to how structural layers of personality have decanted (Naranjo's Symmetries); We will explore these potential Egofixations and its Antidotes to facilitate transformation reaching across growth beyond Type. Participants will be able to dowload handouts from the Conferencee App to work within groups through interactive conversations. They will be able to find out which potential Egofixations they share with other Types. Participants who would like to explore more thoroughly the present resources or potential fixations of their personality will be encouraged to take previously an online assessment and receive the results to work with during the session by contacting viviana.trucco@gmail.com to receive the password.

Crises and our Tendencies in Them - How instinctual Bias Influence What We Do in a Crisis

When things do not go as planned, it is kind of a crisis. In a crisis, people change their behaviour from their normal habits. This can be either good or bad. The instinctual bias is, in fact, an instinctive focus of our attention on certain things. It is natural that in a crisis, our attention tends more than normal to what is important to us. That is an instinctual bias behaviour. The instinctual bias can help us cope better with a crisis or, conversely, it can be an obstacle on the way out of a crisis.

The Enneagram as a Process of Inclusion in Organizations

The enneagram has been for years a technique or philosophy of life very accepted and used in spirituality, psychology and self development leaving a whole space for organizations from the perspective of inclusion of all structures within oneself first and then inclusion with other human beings. Inclusion requires an open mind that allows us to naturally include all classifications of archetypes in ourselves, understanding that we are not only one, but lovingly and harmoniously including the search for the structures that are in the circle of the enneagram to be one.

Integrating the Enneagram, Mind-Body Bridging and Coaching in Developing Resilience

In the workshop the participants will learn and have a possibility to try out an evidence-based coaching and therapy tool Mind-Body Bridging (MBB) which increases self-regulation skills and coping strategies while promoting psychological resilience and find the connection with the enneagram. MBB helps us to notice the difference when our brain is not functioning at best filling the mind with clutter, the body with tension and we experience stress, and then learn to access the natural resources of our brain and mind. MBB has research evidence of being effective for eg. treating with stress, PTSD, anxiety, sleep problems and addictions. It also has been proven to be useful in organizations, as part of leadership development trainings as well as in team and individual coaching. It will be explored the connection between the enneagram and MBB eg. how MBB exercises can be helpful in finding the enneagram types the person resonates with the most and how the enneagram and MBB can be integrated in coaching in developing resilience.

Reaching Across from and to The Head Types (from the Angle of the Voice)

You are your voice. Your struggle, passion, fixation, past, present and potential can all be heard through the vibrational frequency of your sound, your voice.

In my work, most clients reported that the types they understood the least were the head types. To reach across to and with the head types, voice provided a perfect channel for us to understand more deeply about the types.

Voice connects with both your body and your heart. It is a perfect pathway for the head types to get out of the head, make breakthroughs and achieve growth, so they can reach across to the other types, in a more meaningful and authentic way.

Reaching Across in Diverse Arts: How the Enneagram Inspires Creativity in Arts & Media

Everyone is creative. Whether a person makes their living with their art, dabbles occasionally as a hobby, or flirts with the idea of doing that creative thing that they haven’t done since childhood, each of us has the capacity to process our lives and experiences through creative work. How we go about doing this is strongly impacted by our personality.

This panel brings together four people working in various branches of the arts: music, theatre, literature and visual arts. Each person has knowledge and understanding of the Enneagram. Some have made the Enneagram a direct subject of their art.

Over the course of this two hour conversation, the panelists will share their work and explore the ways the Enneagram has impacted their lives and creative output. They’ll share insights about their processes. And they’ll open up to all questions.

Nature or Nurture? Where did my personality come from? The Relationship of Temperament to Personality in Your Developing Children

Nature or Nurture? Where did my personality come from? The relationship of temperament to personality in your developing children. How understanding this connection can support parents in managing their own expectations and support their children in flourishing to be the best they can be.

Participants will learn how a child's brain develop and the relationship to emerging personality. They will discover the importance of not labelling or typing their children too early and how to understand the needs of each of the nine types that their child may be developing into and how to bring out the best of each.

Participants will leave with a greater understanding and a feeling of competence around supporting their children in thriving into the best versions of themselves.

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - Understanding Self and Others

Have you ever thought, "Why do I do what I do?" When it comes to decision making - are you ruled by your heart, your head or your gut? All three play a factor yet one will dominate your personality. Little has been presented on the Enneagram to show the system in a more accessible form using easy English and info graphics.

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - has taken the complex theories of the Enneagram, added insights of modern science, then translated them into an easy-to understand methodology which introduces a three-step practice that forms the basis of The Integration Movement. This practice helps you to understand your own Path of Purpose.

The session will also explore how peoples different core potencies connect and the value this adds to achieving both personal and organisational goals.

Building on psychological studies that reveal three different styles of connecting, we align these styles with the WID core potencies to explore the WID Connectivity Styles. Individuals that understand their motivations, become teams that understand each other, and in turn create outcomes with each other. WID enables people who think differently, act together, to achieve common outcomes.

The Geometrical Beauty of the Enneagram Symbol

The true beauty of the Enneagram is the fact that it´s a useful and powerful tool for personal growth and development. But also, the symbol itself and its brilliant geometrical construction and inherent mathematical symmetry in fact holds quite a bit of beauty, too.

This session is about the mathematical beauty embedded in the Enneagram an consists of three parts, each corresponding to one of the three elements of the Enneagram symbol, the circle, the triangle and the sequence of the numbers 1,4,2,8,5 and 7.

Nine of Us' - A Musical Journey Through the Nine Personality Styles of the Enneagram

As an Enneagram teacher, registered psychologist and a musician, Bernadette wanted to create a Enneagram resource with a bit of a difference; something informative, that at the same time was dynamic, entertaining and hopefully appealing to a new generation of Enneagram enthusiasts. She wanted to create a resource that helps to simplify the core messages each of us needs to hear in order to emerge from the fog created by the limiting personality patterns of our minds and to put these messages to music so that they can be easily accessed when needed.

This is an album of nine unique songs that aim to capture, in both the lyrics and the music itself, the essence of each of the personality styles described in the Enneagram. The songs are experiential in nature - as we immerse ourselves in the music, listen to the lyrics and deeply follow the messages to which they are pointing, we can actually move closer to the present moment and into expansive awareness.

These songs take us on a musical journey through the different mental and emotional structures that are so profoundly described in the Enneagram, allowing us to experience, contemplate and feel into each part of the whole and the different pathways to presence that are available to us all. https://bernadettegalea.com/music-vidoes

Elevating Global Well-being and Consciousness through the Depth and Expansion of the Enneagram

The Enneagram is ultimately a map of non-fixated, awakened consciousness and human wholeness. It is universally applicable to every dimension of life - beyond belief systems, cultures, or modalities. In this pivotal time in our world, how can we accelerate the integration of the authentic depth of the Enneagram to every aspect of life.

Where are we? Where are we going? And what’s needed to uplevel the full transformational potential of the Enneagram personally and collectively?

As the Founder and Host of the Enneagram Global Summits, with a dedicated vision to supporting cooperation, collaboration, and creativity in the field, Jessica is in a unique position to talk about the potential, the shadows, the trends, and the calls of the Enneagram field today. We will gather to hear about these, and learn what we can do in our practice and life to contribute to the Enneagram’s transformational impact for humanity. There will be learning, sharing, experiential exercises and dialogue. We will expand our knowledge, vision, and orientations to empower and embody our capacity to transmit the Love, wisdom, presence and creativity that the Enneagram can contribute to the challenges and promises of life and our world today.

Reaching Across the Enneagram into Race, Relationships and Reflexivity

This highly interactive session offers a straightforward, down-to-earth, gritty South African discussion about race and the Enneagram. Now, more than ever, the world needs to have these conversations to promote social justice. As Enneagram practitioners, we do not have the right or the luxury to bypass the current contextual reality around issues of race, equity, and inclusion.

The session explores our own relationship with race as practitioners, allowing us to also look at how these dynamics may play out for others. When we are able to work with their own racial identities and socialisation, we are then able to support others to process their reality and context and can avoid perpetuating racial wounding.

The session presents data collected through the AIM questionnaire, which combines Enneagram type measurement with a sentence completion methodology measuring vertical development. This offers a unique view of how maturity, Enneagram style and orientation to race intersect. We will also share verbatims and short case studies from conversations about racial issues with different Enneagram styles. This session is for people who care about societal change, honest conversation, inclusion and racial awareness in their Enneagram practice and personal development journeys.

Panel Presentation: Reaching Across Race: Enhancing the Enneagram's Inclusiveness as a Place to Begin

We are not truly free to thrive until everyone is free to thrive- until we all feel safety and support to be, express, and love who and what we love. We know this, yet billions of people on our planet are not as free as those identified with a dominant culture.

This will be an honest unplugged conversation in which grief, rage, love and potential are welcome - first between the panelists, and then with the Conference community. The Enneagram can guide individuals to liberate oppressed and locked parts of themselves to live an authentic and fully expressed life. It is one of the most powerful tools on the planet for creating equitable community, where all are valued. Social Equity Leaders are now using the Enneagram in powerful and (r)evolutionary ways to address the “othering” that happens through “isms” such as racism, sexism, colonialism, ageism, and gender expression, sexual orientation, political identity and more.

The Enneagram community must also examine its own biases, shadows, and misconceptions so we can contribute to ending oppression of all kinds and creating a world of interdependent honoring, caring and support of ALL.

In this session the panelists will each explore these topics from the lens of their own experience of race, gender, sexual orientation and culture. Then we will open a dialogue with the conference community.

• Building conscious and liberated community by supporting the evolution of consciousness with the Enneagram

• Decolonizing the self and relationships: liberating internalized oppression

• Building resilience from the scars of oppression and violence - riding the waves of awareness about racial injustice in 2020 and 2021

Inspiring Women to Show Up (Authentically) Using the Enneagram

This session is for both men and women; for all those who want to explore ways to continue contributing to craft the role of women in society, making the most out of their participation in the different domains they are part of. But doing so in a way that feels authentic to them. That they don't need to pretend to be someone they are not, in terms of gender, Ennea-type, etc.

During this session we will dive into the narratives of women of each type, exploring how they see the expectations society has of them, their own, and how they see themselves. In groups by type, participants will explore their stories related to these expectations. We will then look at those stories and identify the Enneagram-related conflicts and contradictions that arise in them.

The second part of the session will address the contradictions created by these narratives and how we can learn to manage and work with, rather than against, them.

People will leave the session with a deeper understanding of the narratives of women of each type and with ideas on how to create space for women to continue contributing to society in an authentic way.

The Antiracist Enneagram Framework

Our work around our Enneagram type can be powerful in dismantling white supremacy and creating equity. Antiracism is a commitment to actively doing your personal work around topics of power, oppression, and privilege. The intersections between our own personal Enneagram type work and our identity work give us rich fodder for this commitment.

Looking at the culture of whiteness (the construct), the ways we've been socialized, and the work around our Enneagram type can help us create a new world of equity. Exploring embodied reactivity through the instincts, the emotional reactivity through the passions, the mental reactivity through the fixations, and the protections found in the defense mechanisms gives us a framework for deeper antiracism work.

This presentation will review a framework used with clients who are setting the foundation for their antiracism journey, utilizing the Enneagram transform their inner work to their work in the world.

Teach the Enneagram through Metaphor, Picture and Story

Metaphor is a figure of speech that directly compares one thing to another for the purpose of illuminating information and amplifying that which is being taught. Pictures, understood as symbol that represent something in reality, are also metaphors for that which they represent. And so are stories, at least meaningful "sticky" stories, stories that are transcend the individual story characters and take our understanding to the more universal.

You'll learn how to create and use metaphor, picture and story when you teach the Enneagram. Here's why learning these techniques makes such a huge difference. Most teaching focuses on the brain's left hemisphere that utilizes logic and categories; metaphor, picture and story, by contrast, enlist the right hemisphere so that multiple connections between things happens organically. Metaphor, picture and story also assist in integrating new and nuanced information at the very onset of initial information sharing because these symbolic vehicles covey multi-leveled information simultaneously. Even more, going beyond words through metaphor, picture and story are dynamic tools that aid in just this kind of creative problem solving. Finally, metaphor, picture and story aid in retention of information. People simply remember them better than just words.

New Normal: Millennials Paving The Career Within

Millennials are changing the way we think about career fulfillment. They expect more intrinsic rewards from their careers than previous generations, and are willing to switch jobs more frequently. According to Forbes, "Job-hopping allows Millennials to have their say in the direction their career is going. They're the authors of their career narratives, and avoid preconceived assumptions about what their career advancement should look like..." They also are changing how work gets done, working more in teams and with technology.

Hear from a diverse panel of individuals, representing different Enneagram types from various walks of life. We will delve into how the Enneagram has helped them understand their greatest career strengths, and how the Enneagram helps them honor their own needs. Next, participate in an exercise to uncover your own career strengths and needs---to better guide you as you pave a path to greater fulfillment.

Relationships Through the Lens of the Instinctual Biases

Relationships are central to our lives and can be the source of our happiness or sadness, but nurturing them can be hard work. In this session we will present a model of understanding relationships – those at home or those at work – through the Lens of the Instinctual Biases of the Enneagram.

Not only the nine Ennea-types provide an understanding of the different ways we approach life and hence relationships—the three Instinctual Biases help us understand the things we value in life over others, and that when people have different dominant Instinctual Biases their priorities differ:

  • Preservers are focused on “nesting and nurturing” and on ensuring that fundamental survival needs are met for things like food, water, clothing, shelter, and overall safety from harm.

Awareness & Awakening Through Metaphors - Elicit Your Own Internal Metaphors (often Enneagram themed) for Deep Wisdom and Solutions

Most of us know that metaphors are great for communicating ideas, but did you know that they are also great for allowing your subconscious to bring important understandings into consciousness? Metaphors are how we code experience. Our deepest wisdom about situations is held metaphorically in our psyches and influence our approach to problems and goal achievement.

If you think of a problem as a barrier, you'll want "breakthrough" strategies. If you think you need to "get to the bottom of it," you'll "dig deeper". If you think you're "drowning", you'll hope for a life preserver. If you feel "stuck," you'll try to get "unstuck" to "move forward". If your metaphor and strategies are mismatched, you won't get very far. Similarly, in a relationship, if one of you thinks you're starving in a desert, and the other feels "swamped", a satisfactory joint resolution is not likely. In this fun session, you'll discover how inner metaphors work. We'll elicit people's metaphors as examples with Enneagram themes. You'll explore your own subjective experience in new ways and discover the power of eliciting metaphors in all life situations. Expect a lot of "ah-ha's" during the session, and even more in the days that follow.

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - Understanding Self and Others

Have you ever thought, "Why do I do what I do?" When it comes to decision making - are you ruled by your heart, your head or your gut? All three play a factor yet one will dominate your personality. Little has been presented on the Enneagram to show the system in a more accessible form using easy English and info graphics.

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - has taken the complex theories of the Enneagram, added insights of modern science, then translated them into an easy-to understand methodology which introduces a three-step practice that forms the basis of The Integration Movement. This practice helps you to understand your own Path of Purpose.

The session will also explore how peoples different core potencies connect and the value this adds to achieving both personal and organisational goals.

Building on psychological studies that reveal three different styles of connecting, we align these styles with the WID core potencies to explore the WID Connectivity Styles. Individuals that understand their motivations, become teams that understand each other, and in turn create outcomes with each other. WID enables people who think differently, act together, to achieve common outcomes.

Enneagram and Personal Power© - Reaching across the self-realization with the Enneagram

The goal of "Enneagram and Personal Power©", we would like to present is the result of combining the Enneagram, a universal powerful tool for understanding the human being with "The Keys to Personal Power Management three A©", and" the Star of Self-realization©" both designed by me. This is the result of ten years' work observation and experience with Enneagrams in business contexts, training and coaching more than 1,000 persons, and the wish to offer an operational tool to foster personal development in professional contexts where effective and efficient results are required. "The Enneagram of Personal Power©" describes the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that each ennea-types must promote to develop every competencies that allow to reach self-realization. This model, used in coaching and training contexts, helps professionals, in a simple way, to understand the work to have to be done to free their talent — to connect to their Self- and to find easier to remember what to do always - Consciousness. In short, it is a model that aims to bring the spiritual world within the business world in an understandable and practical way to perform.

This model used for almost a year in business contexts has been successfully presented one times in Congress of Enneagram.

Parenting with Presence: Transforming Difficult Parenting Moments into Opportunities for Spiritual and Psychological Growth

Parents are ready to move away from authoritarian and permissive models of parenting towards relationship-based models that focus on healthy attachment and connection. Great parents know that a culture of connection in the home is built on a foundation of Presence. The Enneagram reveals what blocks our capacity to be present to our children and how our parenting "blind spots" prohibit the very connection we seek. The Enneagram also helps us to answer the question, "Who is showing up to parent — YOU — or your personality pattern?" As we learn to be more Present, we come into contact with our own inner adult or "Essence Parent", the part of us that has the capacity to hold not only our own big reactions with compassion, but our children's big feelings as well. This compassionate holding and awareness starts to soften our personality's contractions and allows us to grow into the leaders we most want to be as parents. Real life examples will be given of parents who have used the Enneagram to create deeper connections with their children, to heal their own lost childhood messages, and to transform difficult parenting moments into opportunities for spiritual and psychological growth.

Reaching Across Nine Styles of Change Resistance to Change Resilience

Prior to the abrupt worldwide life and work altering impact of the 2020 pandemic, our global businesses, leaders, and teams were already navigating the norm of constant change with varying effectiveness. Across industries, change is related to needed and steady innovation, new technologies and increasing connection personally and professionally across cultures and systems. Why have some leaders and organizations been more successful navigating pandemic change challenges? Our role as coaches and consultants supports awareness of potential communication, engagement and strategy strengths and blind spots that may impact best practice change leadership. Research supports the established relationship between individual personality and behavior impacting change management and change leadership. The Enneagram provides key insights to illuminate where clients may have opportunity to recommit, revise and reestablish their personal, and thereby influential, change readiness and resilience.

How Project Manager will be Reaching Across Projects Successfully by Understanding Instinctual Biases

The success or failure of a project is often the result of its the Project Manager. They're professionals who must have extensive knowledge in project management, but they must also have great skills in management and team building, to achieve the expected results, on time, with the required quality at the lowest cost in order to obtain the greatest benefit. Therefore, for organizations are becoming more and more important to have Project Managers who are better prepared to deal with challenges and people.

With my personal experience, I've realized how useful it's to use instinctual biases in order to develop and obtain the maximum performance in the Project teams.

The knowledge of the instinctual biases allows us to be able to identify the possible strengths and weaknesses of our teams, where they'll over focus their attention and what they'll neglect. Moreover, it'll allow us to handle more efficiently our coaching sessions and managing better any possible conflicts that may appear during the Project.

Attendees will leave the session with a practical knowledge of how Project Managers be reaching across projects successfully by understanding instinctual biases for leading project teams.

Bridging the Gap: How to Connect With Someone Who Is Suffering

People are overwhelmed with life and work stresses and difficulties. Normal challenges are compounded by undue amounts of secondary stressors, like the pandemic with its rippling affect into every facet of life. Many feel disconnected.

High levels of stress eventually call us to find more adaptive ways to connect to others, reduce our suffering, and the suffering others.

One area of the Enneagram, the Instinctual Biases, offers a powerful understanding of how we interact with others based on what we value, care about, where our attention goes and behaviors follow. By clearly understanding how these three biases work in us, we learn how or when our habits of thought and behavior are useful, or possibly un-useful. We can then cultivate our natural strengths and make any desired changes so we feel better and ultimately connect in more satisfying ways.

During this session, we'll explore the nature of the Instinctual Biases and the stories we create connected to these biases, to understand more clearly how they enhance or limit our connections. In the second part of the session, we'll identify areas of desired change and simple tools to begin incremental steps towards reaching out to others in more connected, adaptive ways.

Can I give you some feedback?

Organizations are embracing agile ways of working in all aspects of their operations. It's not just for software development anymore. In order for agile to work, an environment of constant feedback and input is required. Unfortunately, no one has yet to crack the feedback nut, and most organizations' efforts in this arena are proving less than fruitful. This workshop will review existing "best practices" in feedback techniques and identify organizational cultures that promote or hinder their effective use. We will then beam into Enneagram type breakout rooms to have each type group discuss the methods that work best for them to give and receive feedback, and why. We'll beam back into the main room to report out each Enneagram type group's findings and discuss implications for how to implement these learnings into feedback processes in the squads, work product teams, ad pods that abound in agile cultures.

Reaching Across from the Zoo to the Jungle

"Most of us were trained in a zoo, but we operate in a jungle" (Sonja Blignaut).

VUCA is not a theory anymore. Our Schools and Universities prepare us for a predictable world of business strategy and project plans. We are trained for "order". Our office buildings, bureaucratic hierarchies, org design structures look like Zoos, even Coffee stations has a designated place. We have a 10-year business plan, but we do not know what will happen next week is our new reality. The jungle (Covid 19) crossed over to our "ordered" cities, businesses, schools, and way of living. Our ordered Zoo life has been challenged.

However, in a jungle, we instinctively know we have to look after ourselves (watch where we step), have one on one relationships (connect with individual others) and participate in Groups (if not, I am food). I will share examples of how the Enneagram Instincts are all dancing harmoniously in natural ecosystems and what it means for effective human systems.

This session will also explore how an Increased level of mindfulness and a good understanding of Complex Adaptive system principles (jungle), enable us to Thrive, not just Survive in a new normal.

The Enneagram as a Process of Inclusion in Organizations

The enneagram has been for years a technique or philosophy of life very accepted and used in spirituality, psychology and self development leaving a whole space for organizations from the perspective of inclusion of all structures within oneself first and then inclusion with other human beings. Inclusion requires an open mind that allows us to naturally include all classifications of archetypes in ourselves, understanding that we are not only one, but lovingly and harmoniously including the search for the structures that are in the circle of the enneagram to be one.

Integrating the Enneagram, Mind-Body Bridging and Coaching in Developing Resilience

In the workshop the participants will learn and have a possibility to try out an evidence-based coaching and therapy tool Mind-Body Bridging (MBB) which increases self-regulation skills and coping strategies while promoting psychological resilience and find the connection with the enneagram. MBB helps us to notice the difference when our brain is not functioning at best filling the mind with clutter, the body with tension and we experience stress, and then learn to access the natural resources of our brain and mind. MBB has research evidence of being effective for eg. treating with stress, PTSD, anxiety, sleep problems and addictions. It also has been proven to be useful in organizations, as part of leadership development trainings as well as in team and individual coaching. It will be explored the connection between the enneagram and MBB eg. how MBB exercises can be helpful in finding the enneagram types the person resonates with the most and how the enneagram and MBB can be integrated in coaching in developing resilience.

Reaching Across from and to The Head Types (from the Angle of the Voice)

You are your voice. Your struggle, passion, fixation, past, present and potential can all be heard through the vibrational frequency of your sound, your voice.

In my work, most clients reported that the types they understood the least were the head types. To reach across to and with the head types, voice provided a perfect channel for us to understand more deeply about the types.

Voice connects with both your body and your heart. It is a perfect pathway for the head types to get out of the head, make breakthroughs and achieve growth, so they can reach across to the other types, in a more meaningful and authentic way.

The Integral Enneagram Model: Cognitive and Spiritual Developmental Stages of the Enneagram Types

The Integral Enneagram model is the integration of three main components:

The Enneagram: a profoundly enlightening human psychospiritual model that reveals the hidden patterns of human drives, motivational systems, survival strategies, and meaning making methods of life.

Stages of the Mind: the mapping of the journey of each of the 9 Enneagram types along the stages of cognitive capacity and complexity development. For cognitive capacity development the model uses the Spiral Dynamics Integral as the main backbone, in addition to the work of Ken Wilber, Piaget, Gebser, Maslow, and other transpersonal and developmental scientists and their models.

Stages of the Heart: the spiritual journey of each of the 9 types from deep fixation to a sense of mystical unity and oneness. The Sufi 7 stages of development of the ego/self are used as the backbone of the model, in addition to numerous other spiritual works from diverse religious and philosophical backgrounds.

The three models together create a 3D map, providing an accurate diagnosis of the individual personality traits, cognitive and intellectual value systems, and spiritual capacity for presence and oneness.

Instinctual Types, Pair Bonding and Intimacy 4.0

Types influence and affect how each of the 9 Enneagram Types form, develop and maintain intimate relationships. It will introduce many significant findings from the first study to the most recent. More specifically, it will cover what has proven to be significant for 26 years.

In 1996, Claudio Naranjo validated the first 1994-1995 Study of the Instinctual Subtypes. In 1998, The Enneagram Types, Instinctual Drives and Intimacy was conducted to more clearly ascertain if the 3 Instincts could be statically validated. This study was university validated in 1998.

The qualitative research of the 23 studies proved to be highly informative as to the internal experiences of the 9 Enneagram Types and 27 Subtypes. The unexpected findings were both validating and intriguing because they came from the 9 types themselves.

Reaching Across in Diverse Arts: How the Enneagram Inspires Creativity in Arts & Media

Everyone is creative. Whether a person makes their living with their art, dabbles occasionally as a hobby, or flirts with the idea of doing that creative thing that they haven’t done since childhood, each of us has the capacity to process our lives and experiences through creative work. How we go about doing this is strongly impacted by our personality.

This panel brings together four people working in various branches of the arts: music, theatre, literature and visual arts. Each person has knowledge and understanding of the Enneagram. Some have made the Enneagram a direct subject of their art.

Over the course of this two hour conversation, the panelists will share their work and explore the ways the Enneagram has impacted their lives and creative output. They’ll share insights about their processes. And they’ll open up to all questions.

Enneagram and Somatic Movement

Enneagram and Somatic movement is an integrated approach to learning and transformative experience. The original Enneagram teaching pointed out that the ego-type is rooted in our anatomy. The field of somatic concern the human ability to experience the body from within and becoming aware of ourselves. The main principle is that body, emotion and thought are an inseparable continuum, thus the mind is expressed through the body and the body through the mind.

Through specifics somatic practices of embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological and developmental principles we may observe and transform our mental, emotional and instinctual patterns. We may nail down the process of perception by which information are filtered, distorted, generalised, interpreted and acted upon. We discover how before being ordered into words, thoughts and emotions are often felt as pictures and movements. Movement is not just a form of expression, it is also as another sense to perceive the self and the environment. It can also be a pathway to facilitate changes in the relationship between body and mind. Movement patterning influences how we process information, express ourselves and function. Integrated ways of moving, feeling and thinking support the manifestation of higher level of consciousness.

Awareness & Awakening Through Metaphors - Elicit Your Own Internal Metaphors (often Enneagram themed) for Deep Wisdom and Solutions

Most of us know that metaphors are great for communicating ideas, but did you know that they are also great for allowing your subconscious to bring important understandings into consciousness? Metaphors are how we code experience. Our deepest wisdom about situations is held metaphorically in our psyches and influence our approach to problems and goal achievement.

If you think of a problem as a barrier, you'll want "breakthrough" strategies. If you think you need to "get to the bottom of it," you'll "dig deeper". If you think you're "drowning", you'll hope for a life preserver. If you feel "stuck," you'll try to get "unstuck" to "move forward". If your metaphor and strategies are mismatched, you won't get very far. Similarly, in a relationship, if one of you thinks you're starving in a desert, and the other feels "swamped", a satisfactory joint resolution is not likely. In this fun session, you'll discover how inner metaphors work. We'll elicit people's metaphors as examples with Enneagram themes. You'll explore your own subjective experience in new ways and discover the power of eliciting metaphors in all life situations. Expect a lot of "ah-ha's" during the session, and even more in the days that follow.

Relationships Through the Lens of the Instinctual Biases

Relationships are central to our lives and can be the source of our happiness or sadness, but nurturing them can be hard work. In this session we will present a model of understanding relationships – those at home or those at work – through the Lens of the Instinctual Biases of the Enneagram.

Not only the nine Ennea-types provide an understanding of the different ways we approach life and hence relationships—the three Instinctual Biases help us understand the things we value in life over others, and that when people have different dominant Instinctual Biases their priorities differ:

  • Preservers are focused on “nesting and nurturing” and on ensuring that fundamental survival needs are met for things like food, water, clothing, shelter, and overall safety from harm.
  • Navigators are focused on “orienting to the group” and on building alliances, creating trust and reciprocity, and understanding how oneself and others fit into the group.
  • Transmitters are focused on “attracting and bonding” and on passing genes, beliefs, values, interests, and worldview to others in order to make them carriers of that information.



Understanding the instinctual Biases helps us to understand why we may get along with some people but have conflict with others, and we can use the simple-but-deep Awareness to Action Process with the Instinctual Biases to build on common ground, nurturing our relations by consciously create change in our narratives about them and our behaviors.

Unfolding Presence: Reaching Across The Levels Of Development

The Levels of Functioning describe how we mature within our Type. The key to that maturation is Presence, a quality of being fully in the moment and dropping into a quiet mind and an open heart. In this experiential presentation, we will explore how to access Presence through guided exercises for inhabiting the three Centers of Intelligence - Belly, Heart and Head.

From the perspective of attuned Presence, we will investigate the Levels of Functioning as true Developmental stages, beginning with Level 9 in infancy and moving through the developmental stages of childhood and adolescence up to average adult functioning at Level 5. An exercise for moving from Level 4 to Levels 3 will reveal the path of spiritual development using the Enneagram as a guide. That exercise can serve as a foundation for ongoing spiritual growth.

Along the way, we will explore how interrupted development, from the absence of Presence, creates immature and dysfunctional attitudes and behavior in adults, expressed as Enneagram fixations and passions.

The experiential exercises in this presentation are relevant for coaches and teachers to apply in their own work using the Enneagram with clients and students.

The Enneagram as A Doorway to Your Emotional Mastery

Your "Emotional Mastery Blueprint," the pie chart of your EQ Quiz, is based on the Enneagram. It illuminates at a glance how much and how little you have of the gifts and challenges of all the Enneagram types.

More than just determining your type, it illustrates how all of your scores influence each other and impact you. The result is either empowering, bringing ease and flow to your life, or disempowering, causing stress and struggle, again and again. When you see these relationships, your Blueprint becomes a guide to the next steps in your growth.

When you combine this with learning how to create new neural pathways for the change you want, change becomes easy.

You will stand up and move. A "light" experience of EnneaMotion will guide you in embodying some of the gifts and some of the challenges or "Whammies" that can get in your way. Drawing from my Somatic Focusing coaching practice, you will create new neural pathways to break through any Whammies and embody a mental, emotional and physical shift towards ease in living the life you want.

The Enneagram then becomes a doorway to your Emotional Mastery and a life with wholeness, ease and joy.

What is the Sensation of that? Somatic Awareness and the Enneagram

Are we allowing the full range of our human experience? How would our life be enhanced when we develop our capacity to access a full experience? From an early age, our thoughts, emotions, and ideas begin as sensory experience in the body. As our language and cognitive abilities develop, this fuller range of sensory response narrows to recognizable and predictable concepts and labels like love, joy, anger, fear. Over time we only experience the more patterned sensations associated with these labels. As our sensory abilities narrow, so does our capacity to respond to life from a broader field of depth, and presence. We often fall into habitual reactions which may not be in alignment with what is occurring in the moment. This workshop will explore how to stay present with the sensations of the body. Participants will be invited into experiencing the tissue correlations of the Instinctual Variants (Self Preservation, Sexual, and Social) and introduce participants to the 5 steps of alignment. All this to access our full experience of any moment. With this increased capacity to stay present, participants will observe personal patterns in their sensory reactions connected to their Enneagram Type. Come and play with Brian and Devon.

From your “Home Base” Type to your “Soul Child”

This is an innovative experiential work to discover the “Soul Child”, the way it operates in each Type, meet it and embrace its inner structure.

The session is based upon work on the Enneagram symbol on the floor, through a specifically designed exercise, inspired from both the Life Script and the Family Constellation techniques.

From a slightly different understanding of the “Inner flow” and the Enneagram arrows, the “Soul Child”, named after A. H. Almaas and developed by Sandra Maitri is basically a part of us that was not held or allowed to develop at a very young age. It remained immature at an Ennapoint while our personality grew to the following point in reaction to it. It is a deeper layer within our personality structure that retains access to Essence.

Finding this Soul child and reaching out to it allows us to get in contact with the Essential Qualities, that were essentially available to us before their light was dim by the personality.

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - Understanding Self and Others

Have you ever thought, "Why do I do what I do?" When it comes to decision making - are you ruled by your heart, your head or your gut? All three play a factor yet one will dominate your personality. Little has been presented on the Enneagram to show the system in a more accessible form using easy English and info graphics.

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - has taken the complex theories of the Enneagram, added insights of modern science, then translated them into an easy-to understand methodology which introduces a three-step practice that forms the basis of The Integration Movement. This practice helps you to understand your own Path of Purpose.

The session will also explore how peoples different core potencies connect and the value this adds to achieving both personal and organisational goals.

Building on psychological studies that reveal three different styles of connecting, we align these styles with the WID core potencies to explore the WID Connectivity Styles. Individuals that understand their motivations, become teams that understand each other, and in turn create outcomes with each other. WID enables people who think differently, act together, to achieve common outcomes.

NINE Sapiens: Biology & Evolution of Personality Types

What is the origin of your Personality type? Did it have a purpose in the history of human evolution? Have we discovered the biological mechanisms that might explain our differences? To what extent are we "nature" or "nurture"? What are the implications of these issues to our own possibility to change and develop as human beings?

This presentation will invite you to explore the connections between the Enneagram and some of the most recent discoveries in the fields of Neuroscience, Behavioural Genetics and Evolutionary Psychology. You will be introduced to some of the most likely biological foundations of our personality types, and how they might have emerged in our evolutionary history, through an interaction between the genetic heritage of our species and the changing demands of our environment.

You will explore your type as an "adaptive strategy" from an evolutionary perspective and what this means in terms of your own coping strategies today. You will discover the possibilities that "neuroplasticity" brings to your own evolution as an individual. You will participate in a discussion about the implications of these findings for ourselves and our self-development. And above all, you will be surprised by a totally new perspective on the Enneagram model.

The Enneagram and Human Sexuality

For thousands of years, sexuality and fertility formed the foundation for any spiritual belief and practice. This connection with nature was replaced by world religions, which focus on patriarchal values and repressing the forces of nature instead. The enneagram of personalities teaches us to get back in touch with our True Nature, but few dare to break the taboo on sexuality and admit that humans are sexual beings. Indeed, the understanding of human sexuality of most people in our 'advanced' civilisation is based on patriarchal stereotypes, which all too often run opposite to both ancient spiritual teachings and modern-day scientific research. The enneagram explains how our cognitive mind gives meaning to events or behaviour that have no inherent meaning apart from a biological-evolutionary function of survival. This also applies to human sexuality, with our motivations for sexual interaction depending on our specific worldview or lack of harmony between the different instinctual drives. The enneagram can explain why couples may feel sexually incompatible, why people stray, why we may feel a lack of satisfaction, etc. Understanding these aspects of sexuality should not justify certain behaviour but rather increase our empathy and invite for a mature dialogue instead of demonising the other.

Frederik Coene, PhD

Dr. Frederik Coene is a diplomat and researcher whose fascination with the enneagram opened up new research interests. He currently focuses his research on the influences of our personality on human sexuality and on the Yamchun fortress as possible 'missing link' with the Sarmoung brotherhood.

Behaviors During and After Confinement, An Opportunity to Create Literary Characters

We are living a world crisis that has created uncertainty in all human beings and nobody has escaped to it's consequences. Due to this crisis, we all have developed certain behaviors originated from fear, sadness and anger and as we know not everybody experiences the actual reality the same way and they are related to our three intelligences according to the Enneagram and the way, depending in our personality, one particular emotion provokes certain behaviors. Thus, not all of us has the same survival strategy because each reality can be different and can be seen and lived in a different way. And it could as well, be an opportunity to understand each one's way of dealing with uncertainty. On the other hand, regarding the literary world, this could be an opportunity to create characters taking in consideration the different behaviors and survival strategies coming from the Enneagram personalities and to be aware the way each one of us has created a novel of our lives in which we play the main character created from a survival strategy face to adversity.

What is Your SoulTtype?: Exploring the Enneagram of Soul

Many of us do spiritual work on the deepest levels possible. called soul work, the process of knowing our innermost being is an immense undertaking. many of us immersed in spiritual work, are focused on the level of personality. But our truest identity is far beneath the ego and the personality. Our truest identity is our soul.

When we know the qualities that compose our soul and how we manifest them or not, we have a greater understanding of what our deepest inner work must address.

In this presentation, you will find and experience the unique qualities of your own soul through lecture, teaching, guided imagery, visual aids, video and interactive discussion, you will understand the nine soul types as well as the Enneagram of soul. Applications for soul types and the Enneagram of soul will be presented for the individual and for collectives.

If we know our souls, we know what motivates us on our deeest levels, and if we reconnect with our essential nature and goodness we see the way to peace. Reaching across from ego to soul is a game changer for our way of moving and perceiving the world. And that amazing "reach" enables us to understand, to communicate with and to affirm our fellow souls wherever on earth they may be.

Your Vitality Personality : A Map to Self-Actualization

Your Vitality Personality is the highest expression of your EnneaType. It is the antidote to your unconscious "Ego-Driven" compulsion toward self-sabotage. It frees you to choose "Consciousness-Directed" behaviors that generate vitality - the joyful state of physical, mental and spiritual well being. Your ego is your survival mechanism, driving behavior that creates conflict and destruction. This is your default wiring -- when you are unaware of yourself, your ego automates your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Your Higher Consciousness is the real you—a powerful, eternal energetic being. In regularly connecting with this aspect of yourself, you become your best self, which heals, restores, and uplifts you. The journey moving out of Ego-Driven and into Consciousness-Directed behavior is the process of awakening. It is not necessarily easy or fast. And yet, coming awake to yourself is the only way out of a painful existence, and is the most empowering, exciting work you will ever do.

Learn more about your EnneaType's inherent Ego-Driven Survival Belief, Compulsion, and Survival Behavior, which combine to create your specific Sabotage Pattern...and how to free yourself from these through embracing your Consciousness-Directed Vital Truth, Liberation, and Vitality Behavior, creating a new life of vitality that serves your Highest Purpose.

Reaching New Heights in Your Golf Game by Understanding Your Unconscious Patterns and Finding Your Sweet Spots

Golf is a sport that requires great strength of mind as well as great skill. Many golfing experts agree that the golf game is 90% mental yet the majority of practice by golfers is working on their swing technique at the driving range. As Bobby Jones says; "Golf is a game that is played on a five-inch course — the distance between your ears."

This is where the Enneagram comes to the fore! By helping golfers understand the unconscious patterns that prevent them from playing their best golf allows each individual to begin to increase their self- awareness and ultimately their self-mastery. Each type appears on the golf course in different ways, different things trigger them and their reactivity is more easily understood. By working with groups and individuals to understand themselves better their golf will ultimately improve.

This presentation will introduce new concepts and data gained from research done with over 60 golfers.

Crises and our Tendencies in Them - How instinctual Bias Influence What We Do in a Crisis

When things do not go as planned, it is kind of a crisis. In a crisis, people change their behaviour from their normal habits. This can be either good or bad. The instinctual bias is, in fact, an instinctive focus of our attention on certain things. It is natural that in a crisis, our attention tends more than normal to what is important to us. That is an instinctual bias behaviour. The instinctual bias can help us cope better with a crisis or, conversely, it can be an obstacle on the way out of a crisis.

Reaching Across from and to The Head Types (from the Angle of the Voice)

You are your voice. Your struggle, passion, fixation, past, present and potential can all be heard through the vibrational frequency of your sound, your voice.

In my work, most clients reported that the types they understood the least were the head types. To reach across to and with the head types, voice provided a perfect channel for us to understand more deeply about the types.

Voice connects with both your body and your heart. It is a perfect pathway for the head types to get out of the head, make breakthroughs and achieve growth, so they can reach across to the other types, in a more meaningful and authentic way.

Reaching Across from the Zoo to the Jungle

"Most of us were trained in a zoo, but we operate in a jungle" (Sonja Blignaut).

VUCA is not a theory anymore. Our Schools and Universities prepare us for a predictable world of business strategy and project plans. We are trained for "order". Our office buildings, bureaucratic hierarchies, org design structures look like Zoos, even Coffee stations has a designated place. We have a 10-year business plan, but we do not know what will happen next week is our new reality. The jungle (Covid 19) crossed over to our "ordered" cities, businesses, schools, and way of living. Our ordered Zoo life has been challenged.

However, in a jungle, we instinctively know we have to look after ourselves (watch where we step), have one on one relationships (connect with individual others) and participate in Groups (if not, I am food). I will share examples of how the Enneagram Instincts are all dancing harmoniously in natural ecosystems and what it means for effective human systems.

This session will also explore how an Increased level of mindfulness and a good understanding of Complex Adaptive system principles (jungle), enable us to Thrive, not just Survive in a new normal.

Integrating the Enneagram, Mind-Body Bridging and Coaching in Developing Resilience

In the workshop the participants will learn and have a possibility to try out an evidence-based coaching and therapy tool Mind-Body Bridging (MBB) which increases self-regulation skills and coping strategies while promoting psychological resilience and find the connection with the enneagram. MBB helps us to notice the difference when our brain is not functioning at best filling the mind with clutter, the body with tension and we experience stress, and then learn to access the natural resources of our brain and mind. MBB has research evidence of being effective for eg. treating with stress, PTSD, anxiety, sleep problems and addictions. It also has been proven to be useful in organizations, as part of leadership development trainings as well as in team and individual coaching. It will be explored the connection between the enneagram and MBB eg. how MBB exercises can be helpful in finding the enneagram types the person resonates with the most and how the enneagram and MBB can be integrated in coaching in developing resilience.

Can I give you some feedback?

Organizations are embracing agile ways of working in all aspects of their operations. It's not just for software development anymore. In order for agile to work, an environment of constant feedback and input is required. Unfortunately, no one has yet to crack the feedback nut, and most organizations' efforts in this arena are proving less than fruitful. This workshop will review existing "best practices" in feedback techniques and identify organizational cultures that promote or hinder their effective use. We will then beam into Enneagram type breakout rooms to have each type group discuss the methods that work best for them to give and receive feedback, and why. We'll beam back into the main room to report out each Enneagram type group's findings and discuss implications for how to implement these learnings into feedback processes in the squads, work product teams, ad pods that abound in agile cultures.

The Enneagram as a Process of Inclusion in Organizations

The enneagram has been for years a technique or philosophy of life very accepted and used in spirituality, psychology and self development leaving a whole space for organizations from the perspective of inclusion of all structures within oneself first and then inclusion with other human beings. Inclusion requires an open mind that allows us to naturally include all classifications of archetypes in ourselves, understanding that we are not only one, but lovingly and harmoniously including the search for the structures that are in the circle of the enneagram to be one.

The Enneagram: a profoundly enlightening human psychospiritual model that reveals the hidden patterns of human drives, motivational systems, survival strategies, and meaning making methods of life.

Stages of the Mind: the mapping of the journey of each of the 9 Enneagram types along the stages of cognitive capacity and complexity development. For cognitive capacity development the model uses the Spiral Dynamics Integral as the main backbone, in addition to the work of Ken Wilber, Piaget, Gebser, Maslow, and other transpersonal and developmental scientists and their models.

Stages of the Heart: the spiritual journey of each of the 9 types from deep fixation to a sense of mystical unity and oneness. The Sufi 7 stages of development of the ego/self are used as the backbone of the model, in addition to numerous other spiritual works from diverse religious and philosophical backgrounds.

The three models together create a 3D map, providing an accurate diagnosis of the individual personality traits, cognitive and intellectual value systems, and spiritual capacity for presence and oneness.

Was Blind but Now I See...

A bunch of needs that we are not really able to satisfy naturally. We have judgements, emotional patterns and what is most important lack of energy to stand for them. Recognising those limitations is the first step to change the situation. Finding where the energy goes and how to take it back is the second. But those are just the beginning to open the door to satisfaction of the blind needs because a new identity have to emerge to be able to experience fulfillment. We need conscious satisfaction experiences to make that happen. How can we build a safety net to keep ourselves conscious when we leave our insatisfaction comfort zone?

Reaching Across Time: Using the Enneagram to Heal Childhood Trauma

In this presentation we will explore how childhood trauma impacts the way personality operates and the ways the Enneagram map can help us understand how it shapes the different types and how it can be healed through applying type-based insights. The vast majority of people have experienced some sort of trauma in their lives, but the effect of early trauma has not been fully examined in terms of its potential role in mistyping, maintaining the rigidity of defensive type patterns, and successfully achieving real growth and transformation. We will share our views about the ways unresolved early trauma may make it harder to grow and change, but also how we can deploy Enneagram insights to address and heal trauma to move beyond the defensive patterns of the 9 types and access higher potentials. Through lecture, dialogue, case study examples, and a live demonstration in which we will work with someone to highlight the interaction of trauma and personality patterns, we will share our approach to healing trauma through applying Enneagram-based ideas about the centers, the instincts, the types, and the subtypes.

Using Enneagram in Counseling and Consulting

How does the Enneagram describe the human personality so accurately? Why does it ring a bell so loudly?

The presenter will share insights gained in 50 years of practice. Like many of you, he first learned the Enneagram in seminar-lectures and discussions. He taught it in similar fashion during residential workshops. In many ways, that blend of socializing and discussing was a perfect way to internalize the insights of the personality theory.

When businesses and organizations asked for access to the Enneagram, many were unwilling to commit to lengthy workshops and residential expenses. Time is money and measurable results are not optional. Sharing the theory beyond North America introduced language and cultural issues.

Pat will share how he learned to integrate the insights of the Enneagram into the practice of individual-counseling/therapy and organizational-development/consulting. He learned some important techniques to use the Enneagram without teaching it, per se.

Join Pat as he unwraps the tools he developed while doing various kinds of one-on-one counseling. Small groups benefit from these similar interventions. Whether the process is behavioral-change or executive-search, the practitioner is much better equipped to attain the desired effect.

Larger groups benefit from some formal input. But, the genius of the Enneagram is how it forms visual and visceral images of behavior. The descriptions go beyond stereotypes to reveal motivation and sub-consiousness. These insights can be authenticated through carefully-designed dynamics.

Patrick H. O’Leary, M.S., M.Div

Pat O’Leary began his 50-years’ experience with the Enneagram as one of the Chicago Jesuits in a year-long graduate seminar with Bob Ochs. Ochs had just finished his studies with Claudio Naranjo, MD. O’Leary began offering Enneagram weekends at Jesuit Retreat House in Cleveland OH.

Word spread and Pat was invited to teach the Enneagram in Canada, South America, Europe and Asia. In 1984 O’Leary and Maria Beesing, co-authored the very first textbook, The Enneagram: A Journey of Self- Discovery.

O’Leary is one of the founders of the International Enneagram Association. He developed a training program for Enneagram teachers and refined the theory to be used as a valuable instrument for organizations and corporations, as well as, for personal growth. His current interest is use of Enneagram insights without teaching the theory … a valuable tool for counselors and consultants. IEA Accredited with Honor

Progressive Psychology: The Enneagram for Psychotherapists

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the idea of Progressive Psychology, including using the Enneagram of Personality in a clinical setting. The workshop will introduce licensed clinicians to the use of the Enneagram in their therapeutic environment, including how to partner the Enneagram with a variety of therapeutic modalities and techniques. The workshop is designed to introduce individuals who are currently licensed in the mental and behavioral health field to explore progressive models and methods of treatment outside of traditional practice, including the Enneagram Mapping Method (EMM). The Enneagram Mapping Method consists of three phases: Uncover, Recover & Discover. Participants will learn to use the Enneagram of Personality to help clients 1) Uncover the potential aspects of their personality/world view that are causing them pain or disruption (knowingly or unknowingly), 2) Recover using the Enneagram Mapping Method with their clients' individualized Enneagram results to help them MAP (Make A Plan) treatment planning and therapy and 3) Discover the possibilities of living from a more awakened perspective.

Experiencing 3 Centers: Moving, Thinking, Feeling Centers with Gurdjieff Movement

The presentation is designed to understand the function of the Moving, Thinking, and Feeling Centers. The proper role of the Moving Center is 'the Will to Live'. The Thinking Center represents the 'Will to See'. The Feeling Center plays a role in the 'Will to Be'. However, people only use One or Two Centers particularly, also they tend to indulge with One Center. My research is based on J.G.Bennett's work in the lineage of Gurdjieff.

Exercising the Gurdjieff movement, we can have a chance to experience the pure intelligence of each Center. Exercises are designed to emphasize the natural functions and the integration of Three Centers. Using sensation, counting, and music of the Gurdjieff Movement can show us to see how we all are indulged with One Center or Two Centers mostly. This presentation is meant to be experiential and a deep understanding of your Centers.

Enneagram and Somatic Movement

Enneagram and Somatic movement is an integrated approach to learning and transformative experience. The original Enneagram teaching pointed out that the ego-type is rooted in our anatomy. The field of somatic concern the human ability to experience the body from within and becoming aware of ourselves. The main principle is that body, emotion and thought are an inseparable continuum, thus the mind is expressed through the body and the body through the mind.

Through specifics somatic practices of embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological and developmental principles we may observe and transform our mental, emotional and instinctual patterns. We may nail down the process of perception by which information are filtered, distorted, generalised, interpreted and acted upon. We discover how before being ordered into words, thoughts and emotions are often felt as pictures and movements. Movement is not just a form of expression, it is also as another sense to perceive the self and the environment. It can also be a pathway to facilitate changes in the relationship between body and mind. Movement patterning influences how we process information, express ourselves and function. Integrated ways of moving, feeling and thinking support the manifestation of higher level of consciousness.

To Type or Not to Type?

Is it ethical? Is it wise? is it even possible? Accurate typing of an individual's enneagram style is a complex balance of adequate knowledge, plenty of experience and an abundance of humility. It is not without its challenges and even the most experienced of teachers can make mistakes. We certainly have done our fair share of incorrect typing. We have also been involved in disagreement with our own assessment of our type and someone else's take on us.

In this presentation we would like to take a fresh, and hopefully useful, look at what we have learned around what works and does not work in typing people. Years of experience have made us look back critically, as well as with an open mind, at the often complicated and delicate process of identifying someone's Enneagram type.

Here are the main points we will cover in our presentation:

  • What might be unethical with typing another person?
  • Could it be wrong not to help someone clarify their dominant way of navigating through life?
  • What to do with someone who just does not find his/her type even though it seems pretty obvious to other fellow Enneagram-students?
  • Are we being too sensitive about the whole subject of our personality /ego- structure?
  • Where does the responsibility of an Enneagram teacher begin and end when someone is clearly not 'standing at the right bus stop'?



It would be an honor to share some of what we've learned through decades of experience with our colleagues. Our own mistakes have helped bring us to to a place of either more accuracy in typing others or withholding our view and allowing a person to do their own journey.

The Enneagram as A Doorway to Your Emotional Mastery

Your "Emotional Mastery Blueprint," the pie chart of your EQ Quiz, is based on the Enneagram. It illuminates at a glance how much and how little you have of the gifts and challenges of all the Enneagram types.

More than just determining your type, it illustrates how all of your scores influence each other and impact you. The result is either empowering, bringing ease and flow to your life, or disempowering, causing stress and struggle, again and again. When you see these relationships, your Blueprint becomes a guide to the next steps in your growth.

When you combine this with learning how to create new neural pathways for the change you want, change becomes easy.

You will stand up and move. A "light" experience of EnneaMotion will guide you in embodying some of the gifts and some of the challenges or "Whammies" that can get in your way. Drawing from my Somatic Focusing coaching practice, you will create new neural pathways to break through any Whammies and embody a mental, emotional and physical shift towards ease in living the life you want.

The Enneagram then becomes a doorway to your Emotional Mastery and a life with wholeness, ease and joy.

What is the Sensation of that? Somatic Awareness and the Enneagram

Are we allowing the full range of our human experience? How would our life be enhanced when we develop our capacity to access a full experience? From an early age, our thoughts, emotions, and ideas begin as sensory experience in the body. As our language and cognitive abilities develop, this fuller range of sensory response narrows to recognizable and predictable concepts and labels like love, joy, anger, fear. Over time we only experience the more patterned sensations associated with these labels. As our sensory abilities narrow, so does our capacity to respond to life from a broader field of depth, and presence. We often fall into habitual reactions which may not be in alignment with what is occurring in the moment. This workshop will explore how to stay present with the sensations of the body. Participants will be invited into experiencing the tissue correlations of the Instinctual Variants (Self Preservation, Sexual, and Social) and introduce participants to the 5 steps of alignment. All this to access our full experience of any moment. With this increased capacity to stay present, participants will observe personal patterns in their sensory reactions connected to their Enneagram Type. Come and play with Brian and Devon.

The True Meaning of the Passions

"Like those rank weeds, which only a soil the most corrupt can nourish, the root of this baneful vice must be sought among the basest passions of the human heart-those that degrade our nature and are reproachful to our race. Hatred, jealousy, envy, treachery and wanton wickedness all unite in its propagation." (Samuel Walter Burges -"Historical Illustrations of the Origin and Progress of the Passions.")

In the process of typing, the true meaning of passions is usually overlooked. With statements "carved in stone" such as "Threes are competitive or "Twos are helpers", we lose the deeper meaning of how our shadow works, swimming on the surface of behaviors, which lead in time to a huge misunderstanding of the types and hence, mistyping.

In this session, Gonzalo & Gema will lead you on a journey through each one of the 9 passions 'definition and meaning, from Evagrius Ponticus to Oscar Ichazo, Claudio Naranjo, and The Sufis, going back to basics, making you work in your own passion with a life timeline.

Awareness & Awakening Through Metaphors - Elicit Your Own Internal Metaphors (often Enneagram themed) for Deep Wisdom and Solutions

Most of us know that metaphors are great for communicating ideas, but did you know that they are also great for allowing your subconscious to bring important understandings into consciousness? Metaphors are how we code experience. Our deepest wisdom about situations is held metaphorically in our psyches and influence our approach to problems and goal achievement.

If you think of a problem as a barrier, you'll want "breakthrough" strategies. If you think you need to "get to the bottom of it," you'll "dig deeper". If you think you're "drowning", you'll hope for a life preserver. If you feel "stuck," you'll try to get "unstuck" to "move forward". If your metaphor and strategies are mismatched, you won't get very far. Similarly, in a relationship, if one of you thinks you're starving in a desert, and the other feels "swamped", a satisfactory joint resolution is not likely. In this fun session, you'll discover how inner metaphors work. We'll elicit people's metaphors as examples with Enneagram themes. You'll explore your own subjective experience in new ways and discover the power of eliciting metaphors in all life situations. Expect a lot of "ah-ha's" during the session, and even more in the days that follow.

Relationships Through the Lens of the Instinctual Biases

Relationships are central to our lives and can be the source of our happiness or sadness, but nurturing them can be hard work. In this session we will present a model of understanding relationships – those at home or those at work – through the Lens of the Instinctual Biases of the Enneagram.

Not only the nine Ennea-types provide an understanding of the different ways we approach life and hence relationships—the three Instinctual Biases help us understand the things we value in life over others, and that when people have different dominant Instinctual Biases their priorities differ:

  • Preservers are focused on “nesting and nurturing” and on ensuring that fundamental survival needs are met for things like food, water, clothing, shelter, and overall safety from harm.
  • Navigators are focused on “orienting to the group” and on building alliances, creating trust and reciprocity, and understanding how oneself and others fit into the group.
  • Transmitters are focused on “attracting and bonding” and on passing genes, beliefs, values, interests, and worldview to others in order to make them carriers of that information.



Understanding the instinctual Biases helps us to understand why we may get along with some people but have conflict with others, and we can use the simple-but-deep Awareness to Action Process with the Instinctual Biases to build on common ground, nurturing our relations by consciously create change in our narratives about them and our behaviors.

The Hidden Lever: Exploring Failure as a Path to Development

A strong aversion to failure is commonly associated with Type 3s, but every type has a relationship with this powerful human experience, which is part of our brain's hardwired process of learning. This workshop will explore how the Enneagram can help us uncover barriers and levers to growth through understanding the unique patterns each type develops in the "before, during and after" of failure — anticipating, experiencing and learning (or not). We will share the neuroscience of experiencing a sense of failure. Participants will learn type-based practices to harness the power of failure for development for personal application and with clients.

Working With Enneagram Self-Images

Someone's experience of their Enneagram style is multi-sensory, especially when they are reacting from the low side of their style. There is an underlying body feeling, typical emotions, a story we tell ourselves and imagery that express our self-image and unconscious picture of "the world." Working with imagery is especially useful for changing compulsive fixated reactions and outgrowing the defensive limits of your Enneagram style.

Our self-image is deeply unconscious and attached to memories, roles, habitual emotions. It even has a body location. In the trance of our Enneagram style we are attached to our image and unconsciously believe we don't exist without it. Some overdefended compulsive behavior is an attempt to maintain this historical picture of ourselves, despite the fact that the world around us keeps changing.

In this session we will explore, identify and experience how we maintain self-images related to our Enneagram styles. You will learn how to reduce their influence, evoke the gifts and strengths of your style and live more freely in the present.

Suitable for Enneagram students, coaches, counselors, therapists, as well as anyone wanting to use the Enneagram to grow and change.

From your “Home Base” Type to your “Soul Child”

This is an innovative experiential work to discover the “Soul Child”, the way it operates in each Type, meet it and embrace its inner structure.

The session is based upon work on the Enneagram symbol on the floor, through a specifically designed exercise, inspired from both the Life Script and the Family Constellation techniques.

From a slightly different understanding of the “Inner flow” and the Enneagram arrows, the “Soul Child”, named after A. H. Almaas and developed by Sandra Maitri is basically a part of us that was not held or allowed to develop at a very young age. It remained immature at an Ennapoint while our personality grew to the following point in reaction to it. It is a deeper layer within our personality structure that retains access to Essence.

Finding this Soul child and reaching out to it allows us to get in contact with the Essential Qualities, that were essentially available to us before their light was dim by the personality.

Enneagram Styles And 18 Maladaptive Schemas

This presentation will explore 5 basic emotional needs for: secure attachments; autonomy/competence/identity; freedom to express needs and emotions; spontaneity/play; and realistic limits/self-control.

If these 5 core emotional needs are not sufficiently met, we might fashion 18 maladaptive schemas grouped under these 5 areas.

  • Under the domain of disconnection and rejection are the maladaptive schemas of: abandonment/instability; mistrust/abuse; emotional deprivation; defectiveness/shame; social isolation/alienation.
  • Under the domain of impaired autonomy and performance are: dependence/incompetence; vulnerability to harm; enmeshment; failure.
  • Under the domain of impaired limits are: entitlement/grandiosity; insufficient self-control;
  • Under the domain of other-directedness are: subjugation; self-sacrifice; approval-recognition seeking.
  • And under the domain of overvigilance and inhibition are: negativity/pessimism; emotional inhibition; unrelenting standards; punitiveness.



What’s not to love here? We’ll see what research has shown about which enneagram types prefer which maladaptive schemas. And we’ll consider alternate adaptive schemas to replace these not-so-helpful ones.

Reaching Beyond the Ego to Wisdom... with the "Enneagram Approach"

This presentation will focus on the journey towards wisdom through the Essential Enneagram Approach (by Cris Bolívar), a comprehensive and integrated vision that accompanies our alchemical journey towards harmonization, a transpersonal philosophical-psycho-spiritual view for transformation, development of spirituality and consciousness. The Essential Enneagram Approach is the application of the principles of Essentiality with a focus on wisdom.

Throughout the presentation, the transpersonal process will be revealed from the egotype, the healing of the wound, the enneatypes, the completeness of the Being, the holy ideas towards wisdom.

For this, key concepts of Essentiality and Alchemy will be contributed, with their nigredo, albedo and rubedo phases and what they represent in the journey of transmutation of the Being, relating them to the laws and the different levels and stages of the Being of the Sufi Enneagram.

With an active methodology, reflections, debate, meditations, examples, applications and useful tools will be interwoven both for personal development and to accompany others through Essential Coaching. A presentation aimed at discovering powerful and innovative elements of the Essentiality, revealing and inspiring both for Enneagram experts and for people who are new to it.

The Relational Needs are based on Richard Erskine’s (Integrative psychotherapist) work where he describes 8 relational needs and to which I have added the 9th (with his consent) in order to correlate each enneatype with a predominant relational need.

  • Need for security
  • Feeling valued
  • Feeling accepted
  • Mutuality
  • Self definition
  • Making an impact
  • Initiating
  • Expressing care and affection and the need for respect



The Basic Life Scripts are based on Transactional Analysis and specifically on Claude Steiner’s Book “Scripts People live” where he concludes there are 3 Basic Life scripts which I will correlate with the triads:

  • Lovelessness or no love script (Depression)
  • Mindlessness no Mind script: (Confusion/Madness)
  • Joylessness or No joy Script (Substance Abuse)



I will present the theory with power point and provide written material to participants so they can identify themselves individually. Then they will contrast their finding in breakout groups by triad and enneatype, followed by Q&A.

Integrating the Original Teaching of the Enneagram with Modern Practices

What if we could combine the new modern way of using the Enneagram with the original wisdom of the Enneagram without losing anything but instead enriching the way we engage with the Enneagram and what if we could reach across time bringing the earlier practical mindset of Gurdjieff and Ichazo into our present and future only to broaden the understanding of ourselves and the community we live in. In this workshop you will be introduced to some of the original mindset about the Enneagram, where the focus was less "How do I find my type?" and more "How do I integrate all 9 Points in my personal development?". We will explore the unique psychological and spiritual openings from each Point, and examine how every Point has profound human qualities to be explored no matter what type you can relate to.

If you are new to the Enneagram you will discover a more flexible approach to the Enneagram, while more experienced enthusiasts will explore new practical ways of integrating the original teaching in their personal practices, teaching or coaching.

Welcoming What's Here: Developing Emotional Wisdom with the Enneagram

Each enneatype has classic emotional tendencies and coping strategies. Sometimes these strategies work pretty well for us, but often we see ways they create trouble for us and others.

Emotions are essential for our heart's compass and well-being. However, most of us struggle to be with our aversive emotions (sadness, fear, anger). We may over-identify with our feelings or want to get away from them as quickly as possible. This has us miss out on their transformative potential.

Learning how to navigate emotions in a way that helps understand them and allow them to move through us can be life-changing. Even emotions that have had us feeling vulnerable or helpless in the past have the potential to be important allies for our soul.

You will learn practices to host your emotions consciously— with respect and care, but not indulgence. You will learn to shift toward having your emotions instead of letting them have you.

Through lecture, exercises and discussion, you will expand your capacity to transform emotional reactivity and avoidance into alignment, healing, and fuel for change. Using our three centers, let's reach beyond our usual strategies to experience ourselves in fresh, generative ways!

The Spiral Staircase©: Embodying the Higher Dimensions of the Enneagram

"Reaching Across..." includes reaching out across the depths and dimensions of our being and our psyche. Within this session, we'll explore the transpersonal nature of the Enneagram symbol using mat work. This technique incorporates systemic constellation, the Enneagram and the Holy Ideas & Virtues. The Enneagram symbol contains access to the universal language of the collective unconscious. Within it, we can access numerous aspects that make up our human and spiritual experience. Using the spiral movement that I personally experienced through levels of development and consciousness, I applied this onto the mat using the client's personal triangle.

Within this session, attendees will be; given a step-by-step demonstration to use the technique The Spiral Staircase©; introduced to effective affirmations that can be used for each type at the various stages of the process, and will be guided through a meditation using a similar method but for personal guidance, an excellent substitute for group work.

Beyond Duality: Strengthening the Capacity for Connection and Communion

The state of Unity and the realization that we are all inherently connected dominates spiritual teachings. Oneness is contained within the Enneagram symbol itself. But what allows this teaching to become real and integrated? What is it that blocks this experience and what supports it? We might start by asking "Who is the one connecting?" and "What does one connect from?" Thus, this session focuses on heart consciousness.

The emerging body of work named EnneaCrossings(TM) integrates two powerful symbols that reflect the spiritual journey: the Enneagram and the cross-cultural cross. This integrative symbol helps us move toward less self as we have known it and toward non-duality and interconnectedness. It includes four intersections between our horizontal (finite) and vertical (Infinite) natures. For this session, we focus on the intersection of Communion which links Enneagram points 7 and 2 and connects directly with the heart center.

You are invited to use a personally relevant question as a reflective touchstone throughout this session which includes lecture, meditation, inquiry and somatic awareness. The ever-present dynamic of push-pull between our finite and Infinite natures is especially evident in the heart center, along with the potential for reconciliation.

The Inner Observer : Cognitive Science, Adult Ego Development and Mysticism

In this session we will explore the nature of the inner observer from perspectives in cognitive science, adult ego psychology and mysticism, discovering what it is thought to be, evidence for why developing the capacity for self-observation is so beneficial, and some of the practices that are found to most enhance it.

As Enneagram teachers, coaches and practitioners, how is a self-reading system like the Enneagram, a map and a mirror of the psyche, helpful in cultivating self-observation (from meta-cognition to interoception), and where do we need to find processes to meet its content and avoid the pitfalls of getting stuck in typology?

This session draws on my PhD research in this field, and will involve a presentation as well as experiential processes to access and experientially explore different inner states.

Exploring Different Enneagram Type Pairings, Reaching Across To A Partner or Loved One in Conflict

Exploring Enneagram pairings when in conflict/stress and giving them tools to benefit their conflict resolution. Types covered will be, types 7 and 9, types 1 and 6, types 4 and 8 and types 2 and 5, types 3 and 6. It will be a beginning discussion to give any combination of pairing a deepened communication skill set. When we meet the need of the other and of ourselves we begin to deal with the cause not the just symptom or behavior. We would use the wisdom of the Enneagram to deal with the deeper cause of the problem. I will cover in "general" some ways (learned in marriage preparation facilitation retreat work,) to achieve authentic intimacy skills for all 9 types and "specific" ideas for the Enneagram pairs that would benefit their conflict resolution work. Other good contributions would be added in the discussion part of the format, because there is always wisdom in the group . We will look at specific security and stress states within 2 types and use Enneagram wisdom, and practice to work the problem through. For example we will name the passion that may have a hold on the type in stress or conflict as well as their blindspot and give ways to work through their blindspot and passion. For example type 9 Peaceful mediator may miss that they were "ignoring type 7 all week," so says type 7, but with type 9 naming and owning their own passion of sloth/withdrawal and blindspot-avoidance of conflict may see or be reminded of their truth and state of stress. With type 7 naming and owning the passion of gluttony (allota much) and blindspot of avoiding limits, as their stress reaction, they see how they may have contributed to the conflict (how it happened,) and can go for a win -win. I'd like to present scenarios showing insights for problem solving for the specific pairs and open it up for discussion. 60% presentation, 30% discussion and 10% experiential writing exercise processing the conflict using new found awareness and aligned centers of head heart and gut.

Couples Relationships: Reaching Your Partner Through the Enneagram

Do you experience frustrating relationship patterns with your partner? Would you like to learn how to improve communication and conflict resolution by understanding and shifting type habits? When partners in a couple struggle to reach each other, it's often because they are running up against the limitations of their Enneagram type. This presentation will focus on two angles: Areas of growth specific to your Enneagram type for true fulfillment in your relationship, as well as ways to reach your partner in accordance with the habits of their type.

This presentation will explore:

  • Common communication patterns that arise in relationship with each type, and how to manage them.
  • How the habits of each type intend to facilitate relationship satisfaction, but instead inadvertently create the opposite result: relationship dissatisfaction.
  • Strategies to reach your partner via understanding the lens of your- as well as their- Enneagram Type
  • The development needed for each Enneagram type within the couple, supporting higher levels of health individually and within the relationship.

Psychological Bypassing and the Repression of the Sublime: What Psychosynthesis Can Contribute to Enneagram Theory and Practice

This intermediate workshop will introduce participants to the phenomena of psychological and spiritual bypassing, how they differ and interact, and how they impact our Enneagram theory and practice. We will review materials from John Welwood, Robert A. Masters and other transpersonal psychologists to understand spiritual bypassing and why it has been such a hot topic of discussion these past 25 yrs. Then we will look at Roberto Assagioli and his psychospiritual system known as Psychosynthesis in order to better understand what has become known in some circles as psychological bypassing, which is a "tendency to get overly fascinated with and absorbed in our own personal process. It can be so fascinating to delve into our emotions, archetypes, dreams or relationships... To treat this kind of self-examining as the ultimate journey is to risk becoming narcissistic, a kind of'emotional junkie'..." Special emphasis will be on the famous Egg Diagram of the human psyche by Assagioli, as well as his descriptions of the Higher and Lower Unconscious, and how we may, for various reasons, dynamically repress the Higher Unconscious to our detriment. We will discuss the possibility that we may have an "enlightenment drive" (Almaas and Maitri) and "metaphysical instincts" (Shirazi).

The Embodied Enneagram: Using Your Breath to Relax Your Habit of Attention

This interactive workshop weaves the breathwork meditations of Kundalini Yoga with the habits of attention and personality styles of the Enneagram. The session offers an overview of each Enneagram type including the somatic experience of each habit of attention. The workshop then invites the audience to participate in nine Kundalini Yoga meditations, one specific to each Enneagram type. These meditations can be practiced by people of all physical abilities, and the workshop is geared to accommodate a range of people new to the Enneagram and very advanced practitioners.

Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness, is a technology specifically designed to strengthen the nervous system and increase breath control. The breath, yogically referred to as the steering wheel for our thoughts, is developed and refined through the meditations of Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini Yoga offers thousands of meditations and in this workshop, you learn specific meditations to help address the challenges of each habit of attention. In as little as a three-minute daily practice, you can begin to experience the benefits of increased breath control and how your breathing affects your thoughts.

Your 9 Goddesses - Reaching Across your Inner Power

Through a card deck with a graphic universe loaded with symbolism and in which we have captured years of study and work with the Enneagram, we want to provide a practical tool, that allows women that are just starting to walk their path of personal development and those professionals that work with women and want to incorporate this information on their profesional practices, to explore and develop the nine dimensions or goddesses that live within each woman, so they can access new ways of seeing the world, enhance their skills and integrate their gifts to live a more fulfilling life.

Within this symbolic universe, each goddess belongs to an element or energy center (fire = instinct, water = emotions, air = mind), has an animal that represents the goddess strategy, a flower that representes what that goddess has to offer to those around her in terms of her gifts and virtues, an object that represent the holy ideas, and a crystal that allow the woman to connect with the essence of the goddess.

Parenting with Presence: Transforming Difficult Parenting Moments into Opportunities for Spiritual and Psychological Growth

Parents are ready to move away from authoritarian and permissive models of parenting towards relationship-based models that focus on healthy attachment and connection. Great parents know that a culture of connection in the home is built on a foundation of Presence. The Enneagram reveals what blocks our capacity to be present to our children and how our parenting "blind spots" prohibit the very connection we seek. The Enneagram also helps us to answer the question, "Who is showing up to parent — YOU — or your personality pattern?" As we learn to be more Present, we come into contact with our own inner adult or "Essence Parent", the part of us that has the capacity to hold not only our own big reactions with compassion, but our children's big feelings as well. This compassionate holding and awareness starts to soften our personality's contractions and allows us to grow into the leaders we most want to be as parents. Real life examples will be given of parents who have used the Enneagram to create deeper connections with their children, to heal their own lost childhood messages, and to transform difficult parenting moments into opportunities for spiritual and psychological growth.

Reaching Across Growth Beyond Type

Perhaps working only on Type Egofixations we are limiting our seeking. What if we discover we have to work on other shadows than the fixation corresponding only to our Type? When we understand the multidimensional System the Enneagram is, we can trace richer paths of transformation. In this session we will explore 2 dimensions of personality and discover what potential Egofixations could have settled down in our personality according to our balanced or unbalanced energy flows (Naranjo´s Polarities), or according to how structural layers of personality have decanted (Naranjo's Symmetries); We will explore these potential Egofixations and its Antidotes to facilitate transformation reaching across growth beyond Type. Participants will be able to dowload handouts from the Conferencee App to work within groups through interactive conversations. They will be able to find out which potential Egofixations they share with other Types. Participants who would like to explore more thoroughly the present resources or potential fixations of their personality will be encouraged to take previously an online assessment and receive the results to work with during the session by contacting viviana.trucco@gmail.com to receive the password.

Reaching Across from and to The Head Types (from the Angle of the Voice)

You are your voice. Your struggle, passion, fixation, past, present and potential can all be heard through the vibrational frequency of your sound, your voice.

In my work, most clients reported that the types they understood the least were the head types. To reach across to and with the head types, voice provided a perfect channel for us to understand more deeply about the types.

Voice connects with both your body and your heart. It is a perfect pathway for the head types to get out of the head, make breakthroughs and achieve growth, so they can reach across to the other types, in a more meaningful and authentic way.

Reaching Across from the Zoo to the Jungle

"Most of us were trained in a zoo, but we operate in a jungle" (Sonja Blignaut).

VUCA is not a theory anymore. Our Schools and Universities prepare us for a predictable world of business strategy and project plans. We are trained for "order". Our office buildings, bureaucratic hierarchies, org design structures look like Zoos, even Coffee stations has a designated place. We have a 10-year business plan, but we do not know what will happen next week is our new reality. The jungle (Covid 19) crossed over to our "ordered" cities, businesses, schools, and way of living. Our ordered Zoo life has been challenged.

However, in a jungle, we instinctively know we have to look after ourselves (watch where we step), have one on one relationships (connect with individual others) and participate in Groups (if not, I am food). I will share examples of how the Enneagram Instincts are all dancing harmoniously in natural ecosystems and what it means for effective human systems.

This session will also explore how an Increased level of mindfulness and a good understanding of Complex Adaptive system principles (jungle), enable us to Thrive, not just Survive in a new normal.

What is Your Soul Type?: Exploring the Enneagram of Soul

Many of us do spiritual work on the deepest levels possible. called soul work, the process of knowing our innermost being is an immense undertaking. many of us immersed in spiritual work, are focused on the level of personality. But our truest identity is far beneath the ego and the personality. Our truest identity is our soul.

When we know the qualities that compose our soul and how we manifest them or not, we have a greater understanding of what our deepest inner work must address.

In this presentation, you will find and experience the unique qualities of your own soul through lecture, teaching, guided imagery, visual aids, video and interactive discussion, you will understand the nine soul types as well as the Enneagram of soul. Applications for soul types and the Enneagram of soul will be presented for the individual and for collectives.

If we know our souls, we know what motivates us on our deeest levels, and if we reconnect with our essential nature and goodness we see the way to peace. Reaching across from ego to soul is a game changer for our way of moving and perceiving the world. And that amazing "reach" enables us to understand, to communicate with and to affirm our fellow souls wherever on earth they may be.

MBB has research evidence of being effective for eg. treating with stress, PTSD, anxiety, sleep problems and addictions. It also has been proven to be useful in organizations, as part of leadership development trainings as well as in team and individual coaching. It will be explored the connection between the enneagram and MBB eg. how MBB exercises can be helpful in finding the enneagram types the person resonates with the most and how the enneagram and MBB can be integrated in coaching in developing resilience.

Enneagram and Personal Power© - Reaching across the self-realization with the Enneagram

The goal of "Enneagram and Personal Power©", we would like to present is the result of combining the Enneagram, a universal powerful tool for understanding the human being with "The Keys to Personal Power Management three A©", and" the Star of Self-realization©" both designed by me. This is the result of ten years' work observation and experience with Enneagrams in business contexts, training and coaching more than 1,000 persons, and the wish to offer an operational tool to foster personal development in professional contexts where effective and efficient results are required. "The Enneagram of Personal Power©" describes the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that each ennea-types must promote to develop every competencies that allow to reach self-realization. This model, used in coaching and training contexts, helps professionals, in a simple way, to understand the work to have to be done to free their talent — to connect to their Self- and to find easier to remember what to do always - Consciousness. In short, it is a model that aims to bring the spiritual world within the business world in an understandable and practical way to perform.

This model used for almost a year in business contexts has been successfully presented one times in Congress of Enneagram.

Your Vitality Personality : A Map to Self-Actualization

Your Vitality Personality is the highest expression of your EnneaType. It is the antidote to your unconscious "Ego-Driven" compulsion toward self-sabotage. It frees you to choose "Consciousness-Directed" behaviors that generate vitality - the joyful state of physical, mental and spiritual well being. Your ego is your survival mechanism, driving behavior that creates conflict and destruction. This is your default wiring -- when you are unaware of yourself, your ego automates your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Your Higher Consciousness is the real you—a powerful, eternal energetic being. In regularly connecting with this aspect of yourself, you become your best self, which heals, restores, and uplifts you. The journey moving out of Ego-Driven and into Consciousness-Directed behavior is the process of awakening. It is not necessarily easy or fast. And yet, coming awake to yourself is the only way out of a painful existence, and is the most empowering, exciting work you will ever do.

Elevating Global Well-being and Consciousness through the Depth and Expansion of the Enneagram

The Enneagram is ultimately a map of non-fixated, awakened consciousness and human wholeness. It is universally applicable to every dimension of life - beyond belief systems, cultures, or modalities. In this pivotal time in our world, how can we accelerate the integration of the authentic depth of the Enneagram to every aspect of life.

Where are we? Where are we going? And what’s needed to uplevel the full transformational potential of the Enneagram personally and collectively?

As the Founder and Host of the Enneagram Global Summits, with a dedicated vision to supporting cooperation, collaboration, and creativity in the field, Jessica is in a unique position to talk about the potential, the shadows, the trends, and the calls of the Enneagram field today. We will gather to hear about these, and learn what we can do in our practice and life to contribute to the Enneagram’s transformational impact for humanity. There will be learning, sharing, experiential exercises and dialogue. We will expand our knowledge, vision, and orientations to empower and embody our capacity to transmit the Love, wisdom, presence and creativity that the Enneagram can contribute to the challenges and promises of life and our world today.

The Integral Enneagram Model: Cognitive and Spiritual Developmental Stages of the Enneagram Types

The Integral Enneagram model is the integration of three main components:

The Enneagram: a profoundly enlightening human psychospiritual model that reveals the hidden patterns of human drives, motivational systems, survival strategies, and meaning making methods of life.

Stages of the Mind: the mapping of the journey of each of the 9 Enneagram types along the stages of cognitive capacity and complexity development. For cognitive capacity development the model uses the Spiral Dynamics Integral as the main backbone, in addition to the work of Ken Wilber, Piaget, Gebser, Maslow, and other transpersonal and developmental scientists and their models.

Stages of the Heart: the spiritual journey of each of the 9 types from deep fixation to a sense of mystical unity and oneness. The Sufi 7 stages of development of the ego/self are used as the backbone of the model, in addition to numerous other spiritual works from diverse religious and philosophical backgrounds.

The three models together create a 3D map, providing an accurate diagnosis of the individual personality traits, cognitive and intellectual value systems, and spiritual capacity for presence and oneness.

The Enneagram as A Doorway to Your Emotional Mastery

Your "Emotional Mastery Blueprint," the pie chart of your EQ Quiz, is based on the Enneagram. It illuminates at a glance how much and how little you have of the gifts and challenges of all the Enneagram types.

More than just determining your type, it illustrates how all of your scores influence each other and impact you. The result is either empowering, bringing ease and flow to your life, or disempowering, causing stress and struggle, again and again. When you see these relationships, your Blueprint becomes a guide to the next steps in your growth.

When you combine this with learning how to create new neural pathways for the change you want, change becomes easy.

You will stand up and move. A "light" experience of EnneaMotion will guide you in embodying some of the gifts and some of the challenges or "Whammies" that can get in your way. Drawing from my Somatic Focusing coaching practice, you will create new neural pathways to break through any Whammies and embody a mental, emotional and physical shift towards ease in living the life you want.

The Enneagram then becomes a doorway to your Emotional Mastery and a life with wholeness, ease and joy.

What is the Sensation of that? Somatic Awareness and the Enneagram

Are we allowing the full range of our human experience? How would our life be enhanced when we develop our capacity to access a full experience? From an early age, our thoughts, emotions, and ideas begin as sensory experience in the body. As our language and cognitive abilities develop, this fuller range of sensory response narrows to recognizable and predictable concepts and labels like love, joy, anger, fear. Over time we only experience the more patterned sensations associated with these labels. As our sensory abilities narrow, so does our capacity to respond to life from a broader field of depth, and presence. We often fall into habitual reactions which may not be in alignment with what is occurring in the moment. This workshop will explore how to stay present with the sensations of the body. Participants will be invited into experiencing the tissue correlations of the Instinctual Variants (Self Preservation, Sexual, and Social) and introduce participants to the 5 steps of alignment. All this to access our full experience of any moment. With this increased capacity to stay present, participants will observe personal patterns in their sensory reactions connected to their Enneagram Type. Come and play with Brian and Devon.

The True Meaning of the Passions

"Like those rank weeds, which only a soil the most corrupt can nourish, the root of this baneful vice must be sought among the basest passions of the human heart-those that degrade our nature and are reproachful to our race. Hatred, jealousy, envy, treachery and wanton wickedness all unite in its propagation." (Samuel Walter Burges -"Historical Illustrations of the Origin and Progress of the Passions.")

In the process of typing, the true meaning of passions is usually overlooked. With statements "carved in stone" such as "Threes are competitive or "Twos are helpers", we lose the deeper meaning of how our shadow works, swimming on the surface of behaviors, which lead in time to a huge misunderstanding of the types and hence, mistyping.

In this session, Gonzalo & Gema will lead you on a journey through each one of the 9 passions 'definition and meaning, from Evagrius Ponticus to Oscar Ichazo, Claudio Naranjo, and The Sufis, going back to basics, making you work in your own passion with a life timeline.

Panel Presentation: Reaching Across Race: Enhancing the Enneagram's Inclusiveness as a Place to Begin

We are not truly free to thrive until everyone is free to thrive- until we all feel safety and support to be, express, and love who and what we love. We know this, yet billions of people on our planet are not as free as those identified with a dominant culture.

This will be an honest unplugged conversation in which grief, rage, love and potential are welcome - first between the panelists, and then with the Conference community. The Enneagram can guide individuals to liberate oppressed and locked parts of themselves to live an authentic and fully expressed life. It is one of the most powerful tools on the planet for creating equitable community, where all are valued. Social Equity Leaders are now using the Enneagram in powerful and (r)evolutionary ways to address the “othering” that happens through “isms” such as racism, sexism, colonialism, ageism, and gender expression, sexual orientation, political identity and more.

The Enneagram community must also examine its own biases, shadows, and misconceptions so we can contribute to ending oppression of all kinds and creating a world of interdependent honoring, caring and support of ALL.

In this session the panelists will each explore these topics from the lens of their own experience of race, gender, sexual orientation and culture. Then we will open a dialogue with the conference community.

• Building conscious and liberated community by supporting the evolution of consciousness with the Enneagram

• Decolonizing the self and relationships: liberating internalized oppression

• Building resilience from the scars of oppression and violence - riding the waves of awareness about racial injustice in 2020 and 2021

From your “Home Base” Type to your “Soul Child”

This is an innovative experiential work to discover the “Soul Child”, the way it operates in each Type, meet it and embrace its inner structure.

The session is based upon work on the Enneagram symbol on the floor, through a specifically designed exercise, inspired from both the Life Script and the Family Constellation techniques.

From a slightly different understanding of the “Inner flow” and the Enneagram arrows, the “Soul Child”, named after A. H. Almaas and developed by Sandra Maitri is basically a part of us that was not held or allowed to develop at a very young age. It remained immature at an Ennapoint while our personality grew to the following point in reaction to it. It is a deeper layer within our personality structure that retains access to Essence.

Finding this Soul child and reaching out to it allows us to get in contact with the Essential Qualities, that were essentially available to us before their light was dim by the personality.

Your 9 Goddesses - Reaching Across your Inner Power

Through a card deck with a graphic universe loaded with symbolism and in which we have captured years of study and work with the Enneagram, we want to provide a practical tool, that allows women that are just starting to walk their path of personal development and those professionals that work with women and want to incorporate this information on their profesional practices, to explore and develop the nine dimensions or goddesses that live within each woman, so they can access new ways of seeing the world, enhance their skills and integrate their gifts to live a more fulfilling life.

Within this symbolic universe, each goddess belongs to an element or energy center (fire = instinct, water = emotions, air = mind), has an animal that represents the goddess strategy, a flower that representes what that goddess has to offer to those around her in terms of her gifts and virtues, an object that represent the holy ideas, and a crystal that allow the woman to connect with the essence of the goddess.

The Geometrical Beauty of the Enneagram Symbol

The true beauty of the Enneagram is the fact that it´s a useful and powerful tool for personal growth and development. But also, the symbol itself and its brilliant geometrical construction and inherent mathematical symmetry in fact holds quite a bit of beauty, too.

This session is about the mathematical beauty embedded in the Enneagram an consists of three parts, each corresponding to one of the three elements of the Enneagram symbol, the circle, the triangle and the sequence of the numbers 1,4,2,8,5 and 7.

Some of the visible and the invisible geometrical formations and numerical sequences in the Enneagram will be shown along with the magic of the number nine, the core number of the Enneagram.

Reaching Beyond the Ego to Wisdom... with the "Enneagram Approach"

This presentation will focus on the journey towards wisdom through the Essential Enneagram Approach (by Cris Bolívar), a comprehensive and integrated vision that accompanies our alchemical journey towards harmonization, a transpersonal philosophical-psycho-spiritual view for transformation, development of spirituality and consciousness. The Essential Enneagram Approach is the application of the principles of Essentiality with a focus on wisdom.

Throughout the presentation, the transpersonal process will be revealed from the egotype, the healing of the wound, the enneatypes, the completeness of the Being, the holy ideas towards wisdom.

For this, key concepts of Essentiality and Alchemy will be contributed, with their nigredo, albedo and rubedo phases and what they represent in the journey of transmutation of the Being, relating them to the laws and the different levels and stages of the Being of the Sufi Enneagram.

With an active methodology, reflections, debate, meditations, examples, applications and useful tools will be interwoven both for personal development and to accompany others through Essential Coaching. A presentation aimed at discovering powerful and innovative elements of the Essentiality, revealing and inspiring both for Enneagram experts and for people who are new to it.

Integrating the Original Teaching of the Enneagram with Modern Practices

What if we could combine the new modern way of using the Enneagram with the original wisdom of the Enneagram without losing anything but instead enriching the way we engage with the Enneagram and what if we could reach across time bringing the earlier practical mindset of Gurdjieff and Ichazo into our present and future only to broaden the understanding of ourselves and the community we live in. In this workshop you will be introduced to some of the original mindset about the Enneagram, where the focus was less "How do I find my type?" and more "How do I integrate all 9 Points in my personal development?". We will explore the unique psychological and spiritual openings from each Point, and examine how every Point has profound human qualities to be explored no matter what type you can relate to.

If you are new to the Enneagram you will discover a more flexible approach to the Enneagram, while more experienced enthusiasts will explore new practical ways of integrating the original teaching in their personal practices, teaching or coaching.

The Spiral Staircase©: Embodying the Higher Dimensions of the Enneagram

"Reaching Across..." includes reaching out across the depths and dimensions of our being and our psyche. Within this session, we'll explore the transpersonal nature of the Enneagram symbol using mat work. This technique incorporates systemic constellation, the Enneagram and the Holy Ideas & Virtues. The Enneagram symbol contains access to the universal language of the collective unconscious. Within it, we can access numerous aspects that make up our human and spiritual experience. Using the spiral movement that I personally experienced through levels of development and consciousness, I applied this onto the mat using the client's personal triangle.

Within this session, attendees will be; given a step-by-step demonstration to use the technique The Spiral Staircase©; introduced to effective affirmations that can be used for each type at the various stages of the process, and will be guided through a meditation using a similar method but for personal guidance, an excellent substitute for group work.

What is Your Soul Type?: Exploring the Enneagram of Soul

Many of us do spiritual work on the deepest levels possible. called soul work, the process of knowing our innermost being is an immense undertaking. many of us immersed in spiritual work, are focused on the level of personality. But our truest identity is far beneath the ego and the personality. Our truest identity is our soul.

When we know the qualities that compose our soul and how we manifest them or not, we have a greater understanding of what our deepest inner work must address.

In this presentation, you will find and experience the unique qualities of your own soul through lecture, teaching, guided imagery, visual aids, video and interactive discussion, you will understand the nine soul types as well as the Enneagram of soul. Applications for soul types and the Enneagram of soul will be presented for the individual and for collectives.

If we know our souls, we know what motivates us on our deeest levels, and if we reconnect with our essential nature and goodness we see the way to peace. Reaching across from ego to soul is a game changer for our way of moving and perceiving the world. And that amazing "reach" enables us to understand, to communicate with and to affirm our fellow souls wherever on earth they may be.

Beyond Duality: Strengthening the Capacity for Connection and Communion

The state of Unity and the realization that we are all inherently connected dominates spiritual teachings. Oneness is contained within the Enneagram symbol itself. But what allows this teaching to become real and integrated? What is it that blocks this experience and what supports it? We might start by asking "Who is the one connecting?" and "What does one connect from?" Thus, this session focuses on heart consciousness.

The emerging body of work named EnneaCrossings(TM) integrates two powerful symbols that reflect the spiritual journey: the Enneagram and the cross-cultural cross. This integrative symbol helps us move toward less self as we have known it and toward non-duality and interconnectedness. It includes four intersections between our horizontal (finite) and vertical (Infinite) natures. For this session, we focus on the intersection of Communion which links Enneagram points 7 and 2 and connects directly with the heart center.

You are invited to use a personally relevant question as a reflective touchstone throughout this session which includes lecture, meditation, inquiry and somatic awareness. The ever-present dynamic of push-pull between our finite and Infinite natures is especially evident in the heart center, along with the potential for reconciliation.

The Inner Observer : Cognitive Science, Adult Ego Development and Mysticism

In this session we will explore the nature of the inner observer from perspectives in cognitive science, adult ego psychology and mysticism, discovering what it is thought to be, evidence for why developing the capacity for self-observation is so beneficial, and some of the practices that are found to most enhance it.

As Enneagram teachers, coaches and practitioners, how is a self-reading system like the Enneagram, a map and a mirror of the psyche, helpful in cultivating self-observation (from meta-cognition to interoception), and where do we need to find processes to meet its content and avoid the pitfalls of getting stuck in typology?

This session draws on my PhD research in this field, and will involve a presentation as well as experiential processes to access and experientially explore different inner states.

Psychological Bypassing and the Repression of the Sublime: What Psychosynthesis Can Contribute to Enneagram Theory and Practice

This intermediate workshop will introduce participants to the phenomena of psychological and spiritual bypassing, how they differ and interact, and how they impact our Enneagram theory and practice. We will review materials from John Welwood, Robert A. Masters and other transpersonal psychologists to understand spiritual bypassing and why it has been such a hot topic of discussion these past 25 yrs. Then we will look at Roberto Assagioli and his psychospiritual system known as Psychosynthesis in order to better understand what has become known in some circles as psychological bypassing, which is a "tendency to get overly fascinated with and absorbed in our own personal process. It can be so fascinating to delve into our emotions, archetypes, dreams or relationships... To treat this kind of self-examining as the ultimate journey is to risk becoming narcissistic, a kind of'emotional junkie'..." Special emphasis will be on the famous Egg Diagram of the human psyche by Assagioli, as well as his descriptions of the Higher and Lower Unconscious, and how we may, for various reasons, dynamically repress the Higher Unconscious to our detriment. We will discuss the possibility that we may have an "enlightenment drive" (Almaas and Maitri) and "metaphysical instincts" (Shirazi).

Your 9 Goddesses - Reaching Across your Inner Power

Through a card deck with a graphic universe loaded with symbolism and in which we have captured years of study and work with the Enneagram, we want to provide a practical tool, that allows women that are just starting to walk their path of personal development and those professionals that work with women and want to incorporate this information on their profesional practices, to explore and develop the nine dimensions or goddesses that live within each woman, so they can access new ways of seeing the world, enhance their skills and integrate their gifts to live a more fulfilling life.

Within this symbolic universe, each goddess belongs to an element or energy center (fire = instinct, water = emotions, air = mind), has an animal that represents the goddess strategy, a flower that representes what that goddess has to offer to those around her in terms of her gifts and virtues, an object that represent the holy ideas, and a crystal that allow the woman to connect with the essence of the goddess.

Your Vitality Personality : A Map to Self-Actualization

Your Vitality Personality is the highest expression of your EnneaType. It is the antidote to your unconscious "Ego-Driven" compulsion toward self-sabotage. It frees you to choose "Consciousness-Directed" behaviors that generate vitality - the joyful state of physical, mental and spiritual well being. Your ego is your survival mechanism, driving behavior that creates conflict and destruction. This is your default wiring -- when you are unaware of yourself, your ego automates your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Your Higher Consciousness is the real you—a powerful, eternal energetic being. In regularly connecting with this aspect of yourself, you become your best self, which heals, restores, and uplifts you. The journey moving out of Ego-Driven and into Consciousness-Directed behavior is the process of awakening. It is not necessarily easy or fast. And yet, coming awake to yourself is the only way out of a painful existence, and is the most empowering, exciting work you will ever do.

Learn more about your EnneaType's inherent Ego-Driven Survival Belief, Compulsion, and Survival Behavior, which combine to create your specific Sabotage Pattern...and how to free yourself from these through embracing your Consciousness-Directed Vital Truth, Liberation, and Vitality Behavior, creating a new life of vitality that serves your Highest Purpose.

Parenting with Presence: Transforming Difficult Parenting Moments into Opportunities for Spiritual and Psychological Growth

Parents are ready to move away from authoritarian and permissive models of parenting towards relationship-based models that focus on healthy attachment and connection. Great parents know that a culture of connection in the home is built on a foundation of Presence. The Enneagram reveals what blocks our capacity to be present to our children and how our parenting "blind spots" prohibit the very connection we seek. The Enneagram also helps us to answer the question, "Who is showing up to parent — YOU — or your personality pattern?" As we learn to be more Present, we come into contact with our own inner adult or "Essence Parent", the part of us that has the capacity to hold not only our own big reactions with compassion, but our children's big feelings as well. This compassionate holding and awareness starts to soften our personality's contractions and allows us to grow into the leaders we most want to be as parents. Real life examples will be given of parents who have used the Enneagram to create deeper connections with their children, to heal their own lost childhood messages, and to transform difficult parenting moments into opportunities for spiritual and psychological growth.

Elevating Global Well-being and Consciousness through the Depth and Expansion of the Enneagram

The Enneagram is ultimately a map of non-fixated, awakened consciousness and human wholeness. It is universally applicable to every dimension of life - beyond belief systems, cultures, or modalities. In this pivotal time in our world, how can we accelerate the integration of the authentic depth of the Enneagram to every aspect of life.

Where are we? Where are we going? And what’s needed to uplevel the full transformational potential of the Enneagram personally and collectively?

As the Founder and Host of the Enneagram Global Summits, with a dedicated vision to supporting cooperation, collaboration, and creativity in the field, Jessica is in a unique position to talk about the potential, the shadows, the trends, and the calls of the Enneagram field today. We will gather to hear about these, and learn what we can do in our practice and life to contribute to the Enneagram’s transformational impact for humanity. There will be learning, sharing, experiential exercises and dialogue. We will expand our knowledge, vision, and orientations to empower and embody our capacity to transmit the Love, wisdom, presence and creativity that the Enneagram can contribute to the challenges and promises of life and our world today.

Enneagram and Somatic Movement

Enneagram and Somatic movement is an integrated approach to learning and transformative experience. The original Enneagram teaching pointed out that the ego-type is rooted in our anatomy. The field of somatic concern the human ability to experience the body from within and becoming aware of ourselves. The main principle is that body, emotion and thought are an inseparable continuum, thus the mind is expressed through the body and the body through the mind.

Through specifics somatic practices of embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological and developmental principles we may observe and transform our mental, emotional and instinctual patterns. We may nail down the process of perception by which information are filtered, distorted, generalised, interpreted and acted upon. We discover how before being ordered into words, thoughts and emotions are often felt as pictures and movements. Movement is not just a form of expression, it is also as another sense to perceive the self and the environment. It can also be a pathway to facilitate changes in the relationship between body and mind. Movement patterning influences how we process information, express ourselves and function. Integrated ways of moving, feeling and thinking support the manifestation of higher level of consciousness.

The Enneagram and the Nature of the Self--A Dialog Across Cultures

The concept of "self" hovers over our work with the Enneagram—people talk about finding themselves, finding their "true" or "authentic" self and how it is different from their "false" self, etc. But what do we really mean when we talk about the "self"? While this might seem like an abstract and philosophical question, the way we define such terms matters because our definitions and the way we approach these terms shapes our approach to the work we do to grow. This interactive session is part dialogue, part group exploration, and part instruction. The dialogue is between two people from dramatically different backgrounds and worldviews—one with a Western philosophical and scientific point of view, the other steeped in traditional Indian wisdom. They will share how their first exchange of ideas at a conference in Paris led to an ongoing conversation that uncovered unexpected commonalities of perspective. They will explain how the way some people talk about "true" and "false" selves is inconsistent with many spiritual traditions and modern science and can actually impede our work on ourselves. Finally, they will show how rejecting this dualism and adopting an approach of embracing our complex and conflicted nature can be the foundation for growth.

Reaching Across Race: Enhancing the Enneagram's Inclusiveness as a Place to Begin

We are not truly free to thrive until everyone is free to thrive- until we all feel safety and support to be, express, and love who and what we love. We know this, yet billions of people on our planet are not as free as those identified with a dominant culture.

This will be an honest unplugged conversation in which grief, rage, love and potential are welcome - first between the panelists, and then with the Conference community. The Enneagram can guide individuals to liberate oppressed and locked parts of themselves to live an authentic and fully expressed life. It is one of the most powerful tools on the planet for creating equitable community, where all are valued. Social Equity Leaders are now using the Enneagram in powerful and (r)evolutionary ways to address the “othering” that happens through “isms” such as racism, sexism, colonialism, ageism, and gender expression, sexual orientation, political identity and more.

The Enneagram community must also examine its own biases, shadows, and misconceptions so we can contribute to ending oppression of all kinds and creating a world of interdependent honoring, caring and support of ALL.

In this session the panelists will each explore these topics from the lens of their own experience of race, gender, sexual orientation and culture. Then we will open a dialogue with the conference community.

• Building conscious and liberated community by supporting the evolution of consciousness with the Enneagram

• Decolonizing the self and relationships: liberating internalized oppression

• Building resilience from the scars of oppression and violence - riding the waves of awareness about racial injustice in 2020 and 2021

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - Understanding Self and Others

Have you ever thought, "Why do I do what I do?" When it comes to decision making - are you ruled by your heart, your head or your gut? All three play a factor yet one will dominate your personality. Little has been presented on the Enneagram to show the system in a more accessible form using easy English and info graphics.

The WID Factor - Why I Do What I Do - has taken the complex theories of the Enneagram, added insights of modern science, then translated them into an easy-to understand methodology which introduces a three-step practice that forms the basis of The Integration Movement. This practice helps you to understand your own Path of Purpose.

The session will also explore how peoples different core potencies connect and the value this adds to achieving both personal and organisational goals.

Building on psychological studies that reveal three different styles of connecting, we align these styles with the WID core potencies to explore the WID Connectivity Styles. Individuals that understand their motivations, become teams that understand each other, and in turn create outcomes with each other. WID enables people who think differently, act together, to achieve common outcomes.

Reaching Across Traditions: A Tribute to Retired IEA Founder Helen Palmer & The Enduring Power of our Narratives to Unite and Transform Us

During the endnote session of this virtual gathering, we take the opportunity to honor the legacy of Helen Palmer, the recently retired co-founder of the Narrative Enneagram school with Dr. David Daniels, IEA co-founder and bestselling author. For over 45 years, Palmer’s goal — to integrate sound psychology with spiritual method using the Enneagram map — has remained constant.

What started out as a group of forty individuals in Palmer’s living room in the early 70s, over time, expanded to thousands of people who have recognized their types by seeing and hearing panelists talk about their lives. When we share our personal experiences and sacred narratives in a field of compassionate presence, our souls grow and we can more easily experience the shared humanity in each of us. As we listen to the stories and notice the non-verbals of speakers on a type panel, the Enneagram becomes three-dimensional – our minds gain insight and understanding, our hearts are touched, and our bodies experience the energies of the types.

Host Ginger Lapid-Bogda and presenters Peter O’Hanrahan and Terry Saracino connect our roots to our future leading us in conversation with stories from Palmer herself about the history of the IEA and development of the Narrative method. Special guests will share memories of Helen and her impact in this community. O’Hanrahan and Saracino will offer brief teachings and a breakout group with the global community of live attendees. We hope you’ll join us!
