Enneagram Workshop

Know Thyself

Each person has unique gifts, and reactive habits, or small ways we

get in our own way and limit our potential to use those gifts

 

The Enneagram is a system of 9 different personality types that shows you the inner motivations for responding to life.

 

Centuries old, it is a tool that develops self-awareness in the context of nine different approaches to life, relationships and work.

 

It’s a personal and spiritual development tool that brings clarity and direction to your journey in life.

 

Based on an ancient Sufi tradition, the Enneagram helps you increase your awareness of what conscious and unconscious elements of your lives influence you in your response to the world.

 

It provides a specific path for self-improvement for each of the nine types.

 

In this workshop, you will

 

  • Learn what each type looks, sounds, and feels like

  • know yourself better

  • Relate to others with greater understanding.

  • build relationships more empathically for more happiness

  • recognize and acknowledge your areas of giftedness and limitation.

  • Recognize the unconscious habits that lead to unhealthy behavior.

  • Uncover what interferes with and limits your individual potential.

  • Recognize the process of healing and transformation of  each type.  

  • Learn specific steps toward changing thoughts, feelings and behavior

  • Accelerate your connection with the deepest part of yourself, so you can naturally live in more fulfilling and effective ways.

 

 

We don’t learn only by watching videos or hearing others talk. We learn by participating and perceiving. This workshop will give you that opportunity.

 

Learning the Enneagram helps you impact the world in a powerful, potent and practical way.

Understand your strengths, weaknesses and blocks

Healing from Trauma Workshop

What is trauma and how does it affect our lives?

Being abandoned by not being seen or accepted for who we were as children, creates lifelong recurring emotional pain.

Trauma literally changes the brain; it blocks information processing. 

            Some of the symptoms are:

  • Experience cycles of compulsive behavior 

  • Feel unable to have a true connection with yourself or others

  • Have difficulty relaxing, or feeling calm in your body

  • Feel constantly overwhelmed and emotionally exposed, or feeling numb, or alternating between them

  • Experience a strong sense of loss and personal defectiveness 

  • Have a constant feeling of unease and danger or an expectation that something bad will happen

  • Struggle with self-defeating or dysfunctional behaviors or patterns that you can’t seem to control or change

  • Alternate between feelings of shame, self-loathing and guilt and not knowing why

  • Fear fantasies, not trusting yourself or others

  • Addiction, to alcohol, to drugs, to medication, to food, to worry, to being right, to shopping, to abusive relationships, to anything that is self-destructive but relaxes you momentarily, and has a long-time negative effect on your life.

To make matter worse, you are told, “There’s nothing wrong with you”. 

 

The question to ask is not what’s wrong with you, 

Instead, the question to ask is “what happened to you? “

 

Trauma stops our natural development, it is an invisible wound that injures us emotionally, psychologically, physically, and spiritually.

Childhood trauma is very common but we are resilient beings and generally find ways to survive. But surviving isn’t the same as thriving! 

Many times, the very adaptations, or strategies that helped us to survive, prevent us from really living life wholeheartedly. 

 

For example: I couldn’t express myself as a child so I hid. Now as an adult I have a fear of self-expression, I’m not in touch with my needs and many times I don’t even know what I feel.

 

The past is still impacting the present. Even if we try to avoid it by numbing it.

 

 It All Began in Our Childhood.

 Childhood Trauma can be encountered in different ways including emotional, physical and sexual abuse, neglect, betrayal, growing up with domestic violence, with a parent with a mental illness or who was suicidal, abused substances and/or was imprisoned or with other forms of separation e.g. divorce, grief and loss. 

The survival response system may become chronically activated, resulting in long-term feelings of alarm and danger, tendencies to flee freeze or fight under stress, debilitating feelings of vulnerability and exhaustion, or an inability to assert and protect ourselves.

The mind and body cannot be separated. Trauma exhausts the immune system.  Even if you don’t remember your childhood the memory lives in your body and shows up as Autoimmune diseases such as asthma, insomnia, rheumatoid arthritis, skin allergies and many more including some cancers. 

 

The more you know about yourself, the better equipped you are to engage in healthy relationships and move through life with a positive, healthy sense of self.
