AEA Meetup January 18, 2018

AEA Meetup You might wonder, “What is a “Meetup?” Wikipedia of course has an excellent definition: “Meetup is an online social networking portal that facilitates offline group meetings in various localities around the world. Meetup allows members to find and join groups unified by a common interest.” Each month a different topic will be explored. The 9 Shades of Shame and the Enneagram led by Linda Kriesel Let’s spend an evening allowing ourselves to be curious and explore the relationship between shame and your identified type. After an introduction to the concept of shame, and its limiting effects, we will meet in “like type” groups to share. What triggers your shame? How do you experience shame i.e., in your head, heart, body or perhaps in all three? What are the strengths of your type that interrupt your shame spiral and helps you to move toward increased awareness, healing and self- compassion? Each group will have the opportunity to share their unique type process. The hope is that at the close of the evening we will have a better understanding of the significance of our shame, the tools to restore us to groundedness and the preciousness and power of our authenticity. Biographies:  Linda Kriesel, M.A., L.P.C. has been practicing the art of psychotherapy for over 40 years. Her original training was psychodynamic and over time has complimented her work with the extensive study of family origin, dream work, mindfulness and now with great respect the enneagram. She offers individual, adolescent, couples and group psychotherapy as well as consultation to family- owned businesses, medical practices, and CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies. She is also recognized as a keynote speaker, has conducted weekend workshops and facilitated week long intensives.  Some of the topics of presentations have included: The Pursuit of Happiness, The Many Faces of Shame, The Power of Birth Order, The Significance of Family of Origin Roles, Addiction Recovery and most recently The Nine Shades of Shame and the Enneagram.  She believes in the healing power of relationships and feels it is a privilege to be alongside of those clients who come through her door. Save the date for our next upcoming AEA Meetup: February 15- 9 Paths to Self-Compassion led by Renee Siegel The most important relationship each of us will have is with ourselves. This is also the longest relationship we have and it is important that we find ways to demonstrate ongoing loving-kindness with ourselves. During this meet-up we will explore some of the obstacles and triggers each Enneatype faces in the ongoing journey to growing self-compassion. Biography: Renee Siegel believes that “partnering with you in wellness” is what works to empower those seeking change! Awareness Balance and Connection is the secret formula to anchoring lifestyle changes. And the Enneagram is central to her practice: it is a map for growing self-awareness, finding balance and re-establishing connection with self and others in your life. She maintains a small private practice, teaches around the world and has just launched Pure Potential Retreats for women. The Meetups are open to all of our members, those who know about the Enneagram, those who would like to know more, and to those who are brought by a friend. Come one, come all!!!   Third Thursday* evening of each month from 6:30 p.m.- 8:45 p.m. Registration:...

AEA SPECIAL TOPIC: Awakening Presence with the Enneagram featuring Carole Whittaker on January 20, 2018

Awakening Presence with the Enneagram Special Guest: Carole Whittaker Join us for this one day special topic workshop with Carole Whittaker! Awakening to your own presence, to the presence of your core self that lies “under” your personality, can lead to greater freedom, wholeness and authenticity. It can also lead to decreased reactivity and increased effectiveness in your everyday life. Experiencing your own inner presence opens the door to experiencing and manifesting the higher qualities of the heart (the Virtues) and of the mind (the Holy Ideas.) Please join me in exploring how the Enneagram of Personality Types model serves as a helpful tool, in conjunction with practices of mindfulness, for awakening us to the presence of our core self. We will make our exploration through the three centers of intelligence (body, heart and mind) as well as the nine personality Types. Our day will include teaching on the development of human consciousness (including some updates from the field of neurobiology), interaction in groups and lots of practices of attention. This class is most appropriate for those who are already familiar with the Enneagram model and who know their own Type. The benefits of attending this workshop are: 1. Appreciating the role of attention in the formation and function of human consciousness. 2. Experiencing how placing attention, letting go of habitual patterns of attention and gathering attention contribute to a sense of presence. 3. Deepened appreciation for the value of ordinary consciousness and its contribution in developing higher (more complex) consciousness. Biography: Carole Whittaker, PhD, is an Enneagram Teacher in the Narrative Tradition certified through the Enneagram Professional Training Program with Helen Palmer and David Daniels. She is a member of the International Enneagram Association and the Enneagram Association in the Narrative Tradition and is a Professional Member of the Arizona Enneagram Association of which she is also co-founder and former member of the Board of Directors. Carole has been teaching the Enneagram since 1996 and has developed and coordinated the presentation of an extensive curriculum of Enneagram programs for helping students understand and move beyond their personality type.   EVENT DETAILS | REGISTER HERE When: Saturday, January 20, 2018 Time: 9:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m. Where: Paradise Valley United Methodist Church | Room H-1 4455 E.

The Development and Structure of the Enneagram of Personality Types | February 3, 2018

The Development and Structure of the Enneagram of Personality Types(formerly known as Foundations of the Enneagram of Personality Types) This class provides a thorough groundwork for understanding and utilizing the Enneagram of Personality model.  Following the path of human development from early childhood, we describe the formation of personality type as habits of attention and emotion and the strategies that hold them in place in order to form an individual self-reflective consciousness. We also examine the relationship between the personality self and the inner/core self with its permanent essential qualities of the life force (the Virtues) and of Being itself (the Holy Ideas.)  This class also provides an overview of the paths and practices that lead toward personal integration. Understanding ourselves as well as others from this perspective greatly enhances our acceptance and appreciation of ourselves and others and provides clear direction for continued growth and development. Methods include teaching, exercises and brief panel interviews with class participants. The Essential Enneagram by Dr. David Daniels MD is used to assist participants in identifying their own Enneagram personality Type. This basic course is highly recommended as preparation for all of the continuing Enneagram classes. It is suitable for beginners as well as those who already have some familiarity with the Enneagram. This class is taught in a one day format. Do you or have family, friends, or clients who live in Mesa? We will be offering this class at First United Methodist Church of Mesa on April 14th. To register for this class at this location, click HERE.       EVENT DETAILS REGISTER HERE When: February 3, 2018 Time: 9:00am – 5:00pm Where: Paradise Valley United Methodist Church Room H-1 | 4455 E.

Register today for our AEA 2018 Spring Workshop | An Enneagram Odyssey: Journey Beyond the Story of your Type with Michael Goldberg | April 21-22, 2018

An Enneagram Odyssey: Journey Beyond the Story of your Type Special Guests: Michael Goldberg “Every journey has a secret destination of which the traveler is unaware.” –Martin Buber Deeply rooted in ancient tradition, the ennea-types are stories that we tell ourselves and each other about how we make our place in the world and what really matters. Ultimately, these stories are about finding our way Home, to who we really are and what we may become. These stories have been told since the earliest days. In Homer’s Odyssey, Odysseus meets each of the 9 types in numerical order. With precision, wit and affection, Homer cuts to the heart of type. In this highly interactive workshop, we retell The Odyssey, along with other teaching stories from myth and tradition, for their unconventional insight into how our ennea-type comes to be, and what to do should you “get one.” Participants will take away a fresh look at the patterns of type; a compelling take on the ennea-types as stories which create deep connection to the life of each type; and a framework to engage this perspective for oneself and as teachers and guides for others. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience with the Enneagram. No prior familiarity with myth is necessary. Michael Goldberg has taught the Enneagram worldwide for thirty years. He is the author of The 9 Ways of Working and Travels with Odysseus. He consults with the Enneagram to organizations including the Central Intelligence Agency, Honeywell, South African Airways, and TopHuman (China). He has been on over a hundred television and radio programs, including Fox News Channel, CNN, CBC (Canada) and ABC (Australia.) Michael has taught at graduate schools of law, management and psychology. He was an attorney at the now famous US Office of Government Ethics.

AEA SPECIAL TOPIC: 9 Paths Through the Eyes of Love with Renee Siegel on June 16, 2018

9 Paths Through the Eyes of Love Special Guest: Renee Siegel Each of us yearns to be heard, understood and loved. Each of the Enneagram Types may demonstrate these needs differently. In order to get these needs met, we will explore each of the Types ways of attempting to get these needs met. Topics explored will include foundational self-awareness and self-love, unconditional positive regard, loveology and 9 paths through the 5 love languages. In this workshop you will learn: How to identify blind spots and triggers in their communication style. How to identify how their Type has both assets and challenges in getting their needs met for being heard, understood and loved. How to identify one of their love languages. Renee Siegel has been an integrative wellness provider for over 35 years. She was originally educated as a Marriage and Family therapist and began to question why people hold onto their patterns of thoughts, feelings, behaviors and illnesses. She is a licensed mental health counselor, licensed massage therapist and certified holistic healthcare practitioner. She was introduced to the Enneagram almost 10 years ago and it was “love at first sight and a game changer”. Since that time she has been an avid student of the enneagram. She specialized in 3 areas in using the enneagram: • Integrating Wellness Practices into Treatment • Improving Relationships both personally and professionally • Recovery from Substance and Process Addictions Renee has finished filming an addiction series where she has interviewed all nine types, each having both a substance and process addiction. She describes the enneagram as the “blueprint for health one can utilize when understanding the underlying energetic patterns that distract us from our journey in returning to wholeness.”   EVENT DETAILS | REGISTER HERE When: Saturday, June 16, 2018 Time: 9:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m. Where: Paradise Valley United Methodist Church 4455 E.
