AEA Meetup October 26, 2017

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. Join us for our next Meetup on October 26*, 2017 with Linda Kriesel on The Nine Shades of Shame and the Enneagram *This month’s meetup will be on the 4th Thursday of October.* 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. 1.  What triggers your shame? 2.  How do you experience shame i.e., in your head, heart, body or perhaps in all three? 3.  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. Biography:  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 Meetups: November 16- The Enneagram: A Transformational Coaching Tool led by Sandy Hogan December 14- The Impact of the Enneagram led by Jaye Andres and Sunil Ahuja 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.

Introductory Tour of the Types | November 3, 2017

Presented by Jaye Andres Have you ever wondered why others don’t see things the way you do? How we view the world and respond to it is based on the viewpoints of our personality types and the patterns formed by them, combined with our own unique “essential self”. What is the Enneagram (pronounced Any-a-gram)? It’s a powerful overview of 9 distinct personality types; each with its own strengths, challenges, motivations, and positive paths for growth. Taught worldwide, it crosses gender and cultural lines. What can the Enneagram do for you? Know yourself as never before; learn about others; enhance communication skills; make better decisions; resolve conflicts-internal and external; respond better to challenging situations; improve your relationships. In this 3 hour Introduction, in addition to an overview of the system, you will learn about the motivational core set- up of each of the nine types. And, since there’s no better way to learn than from the types themselves, you will hear from 3 exemplars of each type (via video). By the end of this introduction participants report that they have either found their type, or have it narrowed down to two. For those already familiar with the Enneagram this intro serves as a powerful review and delivers further understanding of the types. This class is $25 as a standalone class, or this class is included in the registration fee for our Fall Workshop with Beatrice Chestnut on November 4-5, 2017.     REGISTER TODAY EVENT DETAILS When: November 3, 2017 Time: 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Where: Paradise Valley United Methodist Church | TBD Cost: $25 for standalone class, or this class is included in the registration fee for the workshop.

AEA 2017 Fall Workshop: Beatrice Chestnut with Uranio Paes this November 4-5, 2017

AEA 2017 Fall Workshop: Beatrice Chestnut with Uranio Paes this November 4-5, 2017

Bea is back!!! You’re in for a treat! – join us for this interactive, NEW workshop on November 4th through 5th… Beatrice Chestnut with Special Guest Uranio Paes presents… The Way of the Arrows: Using the Enneagram Symbol as a Path For Growth “Bea’s and Uranio’s teaching together is increasingly seamless. Bea, a Type 2, offers an approach grounded in psychology and therapy, and Uranio, a Type 5, brings more esoteric ideas about inner work which Bea translates into practical ways of working and thinking. That makes this workshop a must see!” The AEA originally asked Bea and Uranio to present together because their collaboration is so unique and powerful but Uranio was not available. That has changed!!! This workshop is a “A must for those who wish to deepen their understanding of the profundity of the Enneagram model.” As you know, the “work” in the Enneagram is to loosen the grip of our type structure – to move into a fuller, freer life. This starts with getting out of our fixated habits of attention. One of the ways to do that is to take advantage of our connections to other numbers on the diagram – the lines the Enneagram calls the “arrow lines.” You can think of the high side of your connected types as “antidotes” for the habitual tendencies of your main type. For instance, Ones who experience a move to Seven (against the arrow to their “energizing point”) can access a lighter, more playful way of being. This can expand their capacity for relaxation, which can fortify their inner resources for the movement in the direction of the arrow (“resolution point”) to Four, where they can find inspiration for greater creativity and depth of feeling. Twos may learn to get in touch with their needs and feelings at point Four and access more inner power and strength at point Eight. To physically and graphically demonstrate the movement, a floor diagram of the Enneagram will provide some volunteers of each type with an opportunity to experience the movements while the rest of the group will experience this as witnesses and participants in the group experience. The format of this interactive, 2-day workshop is a combination of lecture, demonstrations, type groups, meditation and exercises. It provides information about and an experience of the use of arrow-line points for self-development. The relationship with wings will also be discussed. We will explore how these elements have been viewed in the past, how they are described by important Enneagram-related teachings from Gurdjieff, the Sufis, and others, and how we might usefully experience them in our own personal work. In this workshop you will learn: • How we can unconsciously slide to the low side of our arrow line points and become inspired by the high side of those same points. • How to consciously stretch or expand beyond your type’s focus of attention by using your main type’s wing points and arrow line-connected points. • The history behind the different elements of Enneagram symbol as a model of personal evolution—and revolution. • How to achieve more balance in life by more regularly embodying the gifts and strengths of our wings and arrow-line connected points.

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

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. EVENT DETAILS When: April 21-22, 2018 Time: 9:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m. Where: Paradise Valley United Methodist Church 4455 E. Lincoln Drive, Paradise Valley, AZ 85253 Room: H1  Please go to the upper part of the H building on the west side. CLOSEST AIRPORT: Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport Fees: TBD CANCELLATION: Cancellations received seven days prior to the workshop will be refunded, minus a $20 processing fee.
