AEA SPECIAL TOPIC: Awakening Presence with the Enneagram featuring Carole Whittaker

Awakening Presence with the Enneagram

Special Guest: Carole Whittaker

Back by popular demand!

Join master Enneagram teacher, Carole Whittaker, in this exploration of presence – one of the key benefits of Enneagram exploration.

“This subject matter is magnificent!  It touches my very soul.”

This presentation serves as an excellent background for Russ Hudson’s workshop on “Awakening to Our True Minds” which he will present for the AEA on November 10-11.

Awakening to your own presence, to the presence of your core self that lies “under” your personality, leads 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) and for experiencing the Presence of Essence or the Ultimate Reality.

Please join us 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 placement of attention, letting go of habitual patterns of attention, and gathering attention contribute to a sense of personal presence.
  3. Deepened appreciation for the value of ordinary consciousness and its contribution toward developing higher (more complex) consciousness.
