THIS MONTH’S MEETING TOPIC:  Health Patterns by EnneaType

Your EnneaType predisposes you to holding certain beliefs which affect the choices you make every day.  Have you ever considered how this may be impacting your health? In this month’s meeting, we will interview multiple people of the same Type about their attitudes toward self-care and their current health picture. See for yourself how our different tendencies lead us down particular health pathways. And learn from others what attitudes and behaviors helped them keep themselves healthy or turn their health around.

Enneagram Meeting: The Passions & Virtues

THIS MONTH’S MEETING TOPIC:  The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues (with panel)
Sandra Maitri was the keynote speaker at this year’s recent International Enneagram Association Global Conference. You are invited to participate in our active exploration of her book, The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues, that illuminates human experience beyond personality patterns. Using the spiritual psychology of the Enneagram, she highlights two underlying facets of human consciousness: the passions and the virtues. The passions are the ego-driven emotional states that come to dominate our lives, such as anger, pride, and fear. Discovering and understanding the passions in an experiential way can lead us to what lies beyond the personality itself. As we do, the virtues, which include serenity, humility, and courage, naturally arise to support our unfoldment. This giving way from the passions to the virtues is one of the hallmarks of inner development. Please join us, through group interaction and a lively panel discussion, to learn how your EnneaType can make progress towards living more consciously from your virtue – and from the virtues of ALL the types.

Presenter:  Sandy Hogan, Professional Certified Coach, and International Enneagram Association Accredited Professional, is a co-founder of the Enneagram Enthusiasts, a vibrant and growing Enneagram study group. She has been studying the Enneagram in depth since 2002 and uses the wisdom inherent within it to support each of her clients. She also serves on the Arizona Enneagram Association board of directors and is committed to bringing the myriad gifts of the Enneagram to Life. Sandy has just returned from the IEA Global Conference, where she “sat at the feet” of Sandra Maitri, whose primary focus is on the spiritual dimensions of the Enneagram.

Enneagram Meeting: The Enneagram in Love

THIS MONTH’S MEETING TOPIC:   The Enneagram in Love

The most common question Enneagram teachers get asked is “What’s the best Type for me?”  Unfortunately there is no right answer to that question. All Types have aspects which share sensibilities with other Types. Interacting with different people brings out different aspects of ourselves.

In this month’s meeting, we will explore the dynamics of the 9 EnneaTypes in love relationships with other Types. Using case studies from our own experiences which we may share with the group, we will compile an organic picture of how these textbook descriptions of Type really appear in life.  Gain insight into your own behaviors, and tolerance and understanding of your beloveds’ behaviors.

About the Presenter: Candice Thomas, L.Ac. is an integrative acupuncturist and an IEA Accredited Professional who uses the Enneagram in her medical practice.  She believes it is the best way to serve her mission of “healing through empowerment”.  She employs a storytelling style of case studies and group interaction to offer illumination about how these ego structures play out in real life.

Goodbye, David Daniels

The Enneagram community has lost a great leader. Goodbye, Dr. Daniels, and thank you.

In Loving Memory: David Daniels, MD

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of David Daniels, a brilliant teacher and co-founder of Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition.  David was dedicated to the Enneagram.  He did not merely teach it, however – he reflected and embodied its principles of personal growth in both his own earthly life as well as in his interior, spiritual life.  He was a faithful friend to many, a guiding force in the Enneagram field, and a much needed voice for unity.  The Faculty, administration, and staff at The Enneagram Institute express our love and support to David’s wife, Judy, to his fellow teacher, Helen Palmer, and to Terry Saracino and all our friends  at the Narrative Tradition School.  His life, which touched so many, will continue to live on in each of us.  David, thank you for all your many accomplishments.  We are better for having known you.  Godspeed, my friend.

EnneaGram Meeting: Derailers: Basic Fears & Distorted Desires (with Panel)

THIS MONTH’S MEETING TOPIC:   Derailers: Basic Fears & Distorted Desires (with Panel)

Each Enneagram Type has an (often unconscious) Basic Fear. To compensate for the Basic Fear, the Basic Desire arises. We might say that the whole of our personality structure is composed of our flight from our Basic Fear and our pursuit of our Basic Desire. But what happens when our Basic Desire becomes distorted?
You’re invited to explore more about this “double-jeopardy,” and hear from our panel of nine experts about how this dynamic plays out in our lives.

Presenter:   Sandy Hogan, Professional Certified Coach, and International Enneagram Association Accredited Professional, is a co-founder of the Enneagram Enthusiasts, a vibrant and growing study group. She has been studying the Enneagram in depth since 2002 and uses the wisdom inherent within it to support each of her clients.

THIS MONTH’S MEETING TOPIC:   Using the Enneagram to foster relationships
As you know, the Enneagram is far more profound than a personality type indicator. It’s a path towards personal evolution and self-actualization. Along the way, among the richest, as well as most challenging, aspects of growth is handling our precious, closely-held relationships. This month’s topic will focus on how to attend to your 50% of fostering an important relationship. What behaviors or patterns are you noticing that you’d like to preserve/enhance, or mitigate/lessen? You’ll be identifying an important relationship in your life, and how the predictive qualities of your (and the other’s) Enneagram Type play into this relationship. We’ll be tapping in to the wisdom of other Enneagram Enthusiasts as well, to make for a very interactive meeting, and to offer you the gift of a healthier relationship.

About the Presenter:  Sandy Hogan, Professional Certified Coach, and International Enneagram Association accredited teacher, is a co-founder of the Enneagram Enthusiasts. She uses the wisdom of the Enneagram with each of her clients, along with strengthening her relationships with friends and family. Sandy serves on the Arizona Enneagram Association board of directors, has studied the Enneagram since the mid-80s, and highly values its myriad gifts to Life.
