Spotlight: Workshops with Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes
5-day Retreat—Rising Above the Instinctual Subtypes
San Francisco area, California, USA: April 25-29, 2018
3-day Workshop—Enneagram Pathways: Instincts and Subtypes
London, United Kingdom: May 9-11, 2018
Wisdom tradition tells us that it is in becoming aware of our animal nature and using the capacity for conscious reflection (we as humans uniquely have) that we develop the ability to routinely impose an inner witness and observe our instinctual reactions and our passions in action. This kind of inner work gives us the power to intervene to intercept automatic behavior (stimulated by the interaction of the dominant instinct and the lower emotional center) and transcend to a higher level of consciousness.
These workshops will support and encourage you in doing this inner work by providing the information, the experiences, the support, and the path to deliberately rising above the habitual automatic reactivity of your personality.
Join us as we provide an in-depth intensive experience of the six instinctual sequences (the six possible ways in which the instincts can be “ordered”) and the twenty-seven subtype personalities.

Discover practical ways to integrate the Enneagram’s transformative power within your professional practice.
The Enneagram makes working with clients easier. It is an extremely accurate map to guide and inform self-development work. It helps us leverage optimal outcomes through minimum effort – on behalf of professional and client alike – because we’re better able to make relevant, incisive, well-focused input that goes to the heart of the matter.
This highly experiential, interactive program provides a deep grounding in the Enneagram as an extraordinarily effective and inspiring client resource. It will equip you to make well-informed, skillful use of the Enneagram in your professional work with clients.

(Join us right after the European Enneagram Conference!)
Come experience the inner dynamism of the Enneagram! According to one of the key sources of the wisdom behind the Enneagram symbol, G. I. Gurdjieff, the Enneagram is a symbol of perpetual motion–it should be seen as being in motion, providing a dynamic framework for profound change.
This two-day workshop will provide a deep experience one of the principal ways the Enneagram map can be used for transforming unconscious habits so that you can manifest your highest potentials. Through providing a cognitive, emotional, and somatic understanding of the movement of the arrow lines for each of the nine types, participants will gain a deep sense of how to utilize these movements for personal growth.
