Experiencing Spiritual Freedom Intensive

Registration is now open.

This is a 5-day residential intensive format that includes both working with the Virtues and with the Holy Ideas.

The Virtues described by the Enneagram are qualities of the life force and are experienced in everyday life when our life force is well-balanced. The Virtues are always present even though we may not have direct experience of them, particularly when we are in the reactivity of our passion.

The Holy Ideas are qualities of Being itself and can be recognized and experienced in spiritual experience. Using images of the Holy Ideas and the symbolic meanings they evoke, we will explore the Holy Idea of our own Type and invoke its presence in everyday life. We will also explore our experience from the perspective of Holy Love, Holy Faith, and Holy Hope, and their effect on our worldview.

This class works with identifying the experience of the passion, and with relaxing into the contraction that holds it in place, instead of fighting it or fleeing from it. You will accomplish a deep personal examination of your own emotional pattern and its conversion to the corresponding virtue through exercises, meditation practices, and dialogue. This class also enters into an examination of the reality and validity of intuitive knowing. Methods will include meditation, guided imagery, inquiry exercises, dialogue and journaling.

Who Should Attend

This program is for those who desire to practice, experience, and integrate personality with the inner core or” true” self, using the Enneagram as a map and guide.

Although there are no formal requirements for participating in this course, students are expected to be familiar with the Enneagram model and to know their own Enneagram Type. A capacity for inner observation is also very helpful.
