Developmental Theory of the Centers & 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 practical implications for inner work. This class has both content and practice.
Ancient Egypt & Inner Life
with John Luckovich.
Recorded on Jan 14, 2024
Description: The Enneagram comes from the Fourth Way tradition, which finds its roots in Ancient Egypt and the Ennead of Heliopolis. The aim of the Fourth Way is to use the conditions of ordinary life for deepening presence and awakening consciousness. This aim was shared by the Ancient Egypts, who sought to shape their entire civilization into a living temple, an instrument of self-remembering. While the Egyptians are long gone, they left behind extraordinary artworks and monuments that express these values and offer powerful guidance for modern seekers. In this class, we will be applying a Fourth Way lens to draw meaning from the wisdom and art of Ancient Egypt.
