IEA Presents

Compassionate Inquiry and the Enneagram: Interrupting Your Ego’s Story

By Dr. Gabor Maté
with a Preview Night presented by TJ Dawe

Compassionate Inquiry is a psychotherapeutic method developed by Dr. Gabor Maté that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world. Using Compassionate Inquiry, the therapist unveils the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real message that words both express and conceal. Through Compassionate Inquiry, the client can recognize the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them.
