The Enneagram is an ancient esoteric system showing us our personality fixations.
The personality is a mechanism, a way of dealing with life that we learn in childhood.
It is this predictable response to life that keeps us repeating patterns, and, finding ourselves in similar situations over and over again throughout our lives.
For example, you may find yourself in a repeated number of similar relationships that do not reflect or support who you are.
Or you find yourself blocked or locked in a repetitive non-productive work situation.
We sabotage our future with our past pains and out-of-date beliefs.
All the great sages of all times say we are much greater than we can possibly imagine.
The Enneagram shows us a way out of our fixations by showing us our automatic unconscious programmed responses that keep producing the same results.
It is a Moving Force from Fixation to Potent Possibilities.
The greatest happiness is to know the source of our unhappiness.
There are Nine Basic Personality Fixations,
We mainly use either Gut Instincts, Auditory, or Emotional functions through Introvert, Extrovert or Denial channels.
In my workshop you will learn what this means and you will be able to recognize each fixation.
You will recognize your own strengths and weaknesses.
You will uncover out dated core beliefs that interfere with your inner growth.
You will recognize the process of healing and transformation of each type.
You will have the tools to free yourself from your own fixations.
By changing our thinking we can change our whole world.
Inner Alchemy Workshop
Alchemy means turning one substance into another
Ancients turn Lead the dense metal into Gold the highest vibrating
metal. This is meant as a metaphor for the evolution of life.
For example our parents our society our culture not being able for what ever reason to see us or value our uniqueness created lifelong recurring emotional pain. Feelings of rejection, of abandonment, of fear of our unique expression and possibilities.
This separation from the truth of ourselves is traumatic and trauma literally changes the brain, it blocks information processing.
Some of the symptoms are
Can not regulate impulses or emotions
Experiencing 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 exposed or numb, or alternating between them
Experience a strong sense of loss and personal defectiveness
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
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.
Alchemy is the process of transforming all this dense energy that has been creating your reality into "Gold" or Wisdom
Or the trans-form-ation of energy
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.
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.
In this experiential workshop you will:
Get to the root of self-defeating behavior,
Identify trauma triggers and how they imprint decisions
Heal wounds from unresolved trauma and find closure
Access your innate wisdom to break free of unhealthy relationships
Shift from self-hatred to self-compassion
Create an internal sense of safety and compassionate connection
Come out of re-action into conscious intentional action
Come back to the I that I am, to authenticity.
