A Developmental View of the Centers

An Online Course

6 Recorded Zoom Sessions
with Josh Lavine & John Luckovich





A Fresh Take on the Centers and Object Relations

The Centers of Intelligence are foundational to the Enneagram but are often hazily understood.

In this class, we explore how centers arise in the first year of infancy. We combine this developmental view with insights from Object Relations to reveal more clearly than ever the psychological blueprint  at the bottom of each type. This view also explains why "trifix" is true and has very practical implications for inner work. 

This class has both content and practice. We teach our Developmental view of the Centers & Object Relations, practice together, and assign daily practice for outside of class.
