Introduction to the Enneagram: Finding the Authentic Self

Introduction to the Enneagram: Finding the Authentic Self

Cost: $25 
Contact:  AdeleSomma@gmail.com

The Enneagram is most commonly known as a way of exploring our personality, and for being a useful tool in identifying our individual strengths, weaknesses, and behavioral patterns. While this interpretation alone can be a powerful force in personal development, the Enneagram's true purpose is to wake us up to who we really are by showing us who we are not, but have long taken ourselves to be. Such understanding can act as a profound gateway to compassion and forgiveness for both self and others. In this introductory workshop, we will review the nine different "types" of the Enneagram. Participants will not only discover their own type, but will also gain insight into the people closest to them. Experential exercises and group discussions will be used to engage with the "essence" of particular types. We will explore how the different types specifically practice self-sabotage, as well as the wisdom and gifts uniquely inherent in each.  

Adele Regina Somma is a licensed professional counselor, writer and student of the Enneagram for over fifteen years. During that time, she has intensely studied and attended multiple trainings that have helped her to integrate this material and share it meaningfully. She has direct experience of the Enneagram as a crucial instrument in her own path of healing as well as observed it accelerate self-awareness and acceptance for many others. 

"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious." - Carl Jung

Dear dancers over Sixty-five, Seventy and older, join like minded movers and take a chance to share, explore, play, to continue or pick up again the joy of dance. We know through brain research now about the remarkable effects of meditation. Doing Nothing: Dance of Stillness, brings dance and meditation together as a powerful therapeutic practice.

Doing Nothing: Dance of Stillness is form of dance improvisation mobilizing creative expression and exchange of energy. We practice and learn to move in ways that are authentic and in the process become more aware of how we feel and experience life.

In each session you will be guided from a meditative place with attention to breath, sensation, and emotion and towards authentic expression.  As we learn to listen more deeply to your inner prompts and sensations and gain more insight and awareness the soul and heart opens with delight of being present in the healing wisdom of dance.
