Each year we offer, as part of our yearly True Friend Immersion training, or as a separate course, a focus on ego and insight using the enneagram. Ego or True Self: The Enneagram for Awakening, is made up of two five day retreats and an online portion including five mentor sessions. In this course you will discover your particular egoic fixation type, and how this creates a false sense of self. Through direct experience, exercises, and watching exemplars, we will investigate the movement of mind, emotions, body and circumstance, and how these are used by the mind to create a story of “me and my life.” In this exploration of the fixated egoic trance, there is the possibility to discover what is not fixated, and in that discover the deeper truth of who you are. You will also become proficient at recognizing your client’s fixation, as well as learning how to work with the different fixations, using this insight therapeutically as leverage for profound seeing and understanding, and appropriate intervention.
