Each Enneagram style is an adaptive and defensive system geared to navigate the difficulties associated with human life. It consists of unconscious attempts to alleviate uncertainty and avoid suffering, which take the form of distinctive preoccupations, fixations, ways of relating, and behaviour patterns that we call “ego” or personality.
In more spiritual terms, the ego strategy is a collection of identifications with our conditioning that lead us to forget our essential nature as spiritual beings. Releasing these identifications is the only pathway to reconnection with the hidden truth of what we really are. This inward journey, however, is immensely difficult work, and the Enneagram helps us to find our way through the many veils of illusion that separate us from an experiential knowing of what we really are.
My teaching includes trauma-informed explorations of the types in terms of their function as compensations for failures in the early holding environment, understanding the agency, security and relationship challenges that accompany each defensive strategy. I also explore the spiritual dimension of the Enneagram and pathways to new states of being and awareness.
My courses always include kinaesthetic learning and the experiences of practical resources, tools and processes for you to take away and apply immediately in your personal life and in your work as an Enneagram coach, facilitator, therapist, teacher or healer.
I create learning spaces of inclusivity, safety and connection where you can grow personally and achieve new understanding through sharing and reflection with fellow-students.
These interpersonal and interpersonal insights will deepen your empathy, presence and confidence in your personal relationships and work.
