    Using the Enneagram to Create Balance in Your Life and Harmony in Your Relationships
    Boulder, CO

    Friday Evening 6pm - 9pm; Saturday & Sunday 9:30am – 6:30pm

    Our Instinctual Nature is extremely deep-rooted and arguably the most powerful biological force driving our habitual behavior and lifestyle choices.   It is the bedrock of our orientation to day-to-day reality. Our basic instincts are often ignored or treated as inherent problems -- distortions to be eliminated on the spiritual path. Yet without a clear and viable relationship with this vital aspect of our being, it is difficult to maintain an...

    10am to 4pm

    Doors Open at 9:30am

    In Hollywood, movie characters are not often explicitly written and performed true-to-type –-Enneagram type, that is. It is even less common to see film characters faithfully represent and embody clear and distinct Enneagram Type and Instinctual Variant (Subtype) combinations, such as a Self-Preservation Four or a Social Eight character. But it does happen!

    There are three main human Instinctual Drives: Self-Preservation, Sexual/Attraction, and Social/Adaptive. The particular way we focus on and prioritize these Instinctual Variants in our patterns of attention and behavior has enormous impact on personality.  What we refer to as our “Instinctual Stack” – the preferential ordering of our Dominant, Secondary, and...

    Gayle Scott
    Chester, CT; San Francisco, CA; Loveland, CO

    Part I is an in-depth presentation of the Enneagram as a psycho-spiritual system. It features complete descriptions of the types as well as specifics for identifying them. The Training combines grounded, intellectual understanding with a variety of experiential approaches that give participants a clear feel for the inner world of each type. Further, we employ the comprehensive framework of the Levels of Development to add depth and richness to our discussions. The Levels are essential because they account for differences between individuals of the same type, discriminate between similar types, and help clarify the many irregularities and subtleties of each type-thus making wide-ranging practical applications and...

April 2014

  • April 25, 2014 - April 27, 2014
    Using the Enneagram to Create Balance in your Life and Harmony in your Relationships
    Balancing Stones
    Boulder, CO

    Friday evening 6:30pm - 9:30pm, Saturday & Sunday 9:30am - 6:30pm

    Our instinctual nature, while extremely powerful in our decision- making processes, lifestyle choices, and orientation to day-to-day reality, is often given little emphasis in many spiritual paths, and the Instincts are often treated as an inherent problem—a distortion to be eliminated. This is understandable since this part of our nature is usually little interested in our spiritual or psychological development. Yet, without a clear and viable relationship with this aspect of our souls, it is extremely difficult to maintain an integrated approach to our path.

    The Enneagram deals very directly with this aspect of the Self through teachings about the Three Instincts—Self-Preservation, Sexual (Attraction), and Social (Adaptation)....

  • September 27, 2013 - September 29, 2013
    Psychic Structures
    Psychic Structures Image
    Boulder, CO

    Friday Evening 7 - 10pm; Saturday and Sunday 9am - 6pm

    The Psychic Structures are concrete "blueprints" for the inner mechanisms of each type. They are symbolic representations of psychological processes and are especially powerful for visually oriented people and for those who wish to have a "gestalt" of each type as a whole. With these vivid and dynamic models, you will be able to see with startling clarity what is happening in each Enneagram personality type and why.

    This Workshop, taught by Enneagram Institute Senior Faculty Gayle Scott and Lynda Roberts, employs visual models, discussion, music, and deep experiential work to introduce...

     Optional Introductory Evening, Friday, October 28th  6:30pm - 9:30pm

    Most of us encounter the Enneagram as a useful system of personality types. We find it fascinating to see ourselves and others through the insights that the Enneagram offers. But at a certain point, we begin to see that the characteristics described in Enneagram books reflect only part of the picture.

     

    At a deeper level, the Enneagram tells us...

    Keys to Understanding Intimate, Familial, Friendship, and Professional Relationships
    Boulder, CO

    Friday, 7:30 - 10pm; Saturday and Sunday 9am - 6pm

    Relationships are one of the most rewarding — as well as the most frustrating — aspects of our existence. Whether in intimate or work settings, the quality of our relationships has an enormous impact on the quality of our lives, our livelihood, our self-esteem, and even our health.

    We often find the behavior of others baffling—even if we have known them intimately for many years. Often, the attitudes and behaviors that we do not understand in others are the greatest sources of problems and conflicts in our...
