Our inner work is not just for our own well-being, but provides necessary direction to our outer work and interpersonal relationships in whatever roles we are called to. Inner and outer are intricately intertwined.
EnneaCrossings™, an integration of two powerful and ancient symbols (the Enneagram and cross-cultural cross) that reflect the spiritual journey, brings new awareness to a mostly hidden interior neuro-psycho-spiritual structure that unconsciously can reinforce a sense of separateness as well as provide portals to our awakened nature.
“Life has a cruciform pattern” (R. Rohr), where we experience the contradictions, paradoxes, and push/pull of the finite and Infinite dimensions of life which are inherent to the human experience. The word ‘crossings’ reflects the fluidity of life, including our own movement — away from or leaning into the wholeness and interconnectedness of Being.
In this new retreat in the Beyond Duality series, we’ll inquire into what both inhibits and supports our wise engagement, especially in navigating uncertain and confusing times. We will focus on the fourth portal (line between Enneagram points 8 and 1), building our capacity for being on the planet and serving with an evolved level of awareness.
Gather in community for this experiential retreat which includes brief teachings, somatic practices, individual and partner inquiry, silence, and mat work.
To register for the retreat please visit the Mercy Center website at www.mercy-center.org.
You will have the opportunity to join a post-retreat live or virtual small group circle sponsored by the Deep Living Institute. The circles are led by Deep Living facilitators and are designed to support you in further working with the retreat experience. More information will be available at the retreat.
A separate registration for post-retreat circles will take place onsite at the retreat.
