Embodied Presence: A Sensory Pathway to Access the 3 Centers of the Enneagram. (4 Online Sessions)
November 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm PST
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 4, 2019
Are we allowing the full range of our human experience? Can we develop our capacity to access a more full experience? How would our life be enhanced if we could?
From an early age, our thoughts, emotions, and even our ideas begin as sensory experience in the body. As our language and cognitive abilities develop, this broader range of sensory response narrows to recognizable and predictable concepts and labels like love, joy, anger, fear. Over time we only experience the more patterned sensations associated with these labels. As our sensory abilities narrow, so does our capacity to respond to life from a broader field of depth, and presence. We often fall into habitual reactions which may not be in alignment with what is occurring in the present moment.
These four sessions, with Devon Carter and Brian Mitchell-Walker, will explore how to stay present with the sensations of the body (the intelligence of our belly center). Through guided somatic awareness, discussion and Enneagram theory that underlies type structure, we will experience all three centers (belly, heart and head) as they arise in each moment. With this increased capacity to stay present, participants will observe personal patterns in their sensory reactions connected to their Enneagram Type.
When: Wednesdays November 6, 13, 20, and December 4, 2019
