SERIES: Habits of Emotion and Defenses

The defense system is made up of unconscious habits that serve to protect our view of ourselves, our relationships, and the world around us. The awareness and loosening of these defensive barriers leads to greater spiritual, psychological and emotional freedom.

The objectives of this course are to deepen our understanding and awareness of the habits of emotion and how the defense mechanism, avoidance and projection of one’s worldview support the habits of emotion of each of the Types. Class format is highly interactive and includes exercises, practices, and dialogue that awaken the intuitive knowing of the Inner Observer and qualities of the life force. Topics include the passion, Virtue, defense mechanism, projection and avoidance of each of the Enneagram types.

This is the second class in a series on reducing the barriers to spiritual freedom. Students need to be familiar with the Enneagram system by taking Foundations of the Enneagram of Personality Type or other preparation, but do not have to have taken the first class in this series (Type as False Identification.) It is typically presented in 5 to 6, 2½-hour weekly sessions.
