AEA SPECIAL TOPIC: Exploring the Harmony Triads with Carole Whittaker on March 25, 2017

Exploring the Harmony Triads      

Special Guest: Carole Whittaker

Many Enneagram teachers and experienced students have observed a strong relationship between Types Two and Five and between Types Four and Seven, lines that would appear to be “hidden” on the Enneagram diagram of personality types.  When represented as an Enneagram diagram  the relationship of Types One-Seven-Four and Types Eight-Five-Two as well as Types Nine-Six-Three appear as three triangles rather than the familiar Nine-Six-Three triangle and One-Four-Two-Eight-Five-Seven “star-like” figure so familiar to the Enneagram of Personality Types.  The observation has become so frequent that Dr. David Daniels has dubbed this the “Harmony Triads.”  What is this observed relationship disclosing?  Might it be a key to transformation beyond Type?

In working with students in their experience of the Holy Ideas, we have observed the transformative effect on their lives of experiencing Holy Love, Holy Faith and Holy Hope.  Recently we have seen more clearly the same transformative effect in all of the Harmony Triads of the influence of the Holy Ideas on their experience. These include a deeper and more authentic sense of self, an enhanced sense of  life-force energy, an easing of reactivity resulting in a greater sense of freedom. Are you attracted to deepening these qualities in yourself?

This class is an invitation to join in an exploration of the unfolding of human consciousness that includes and transcends Type.  It will include some didactic teaching to get us started and lots of conversation in pairs and small groups.  We will consider some practices that may help to develop capacities for experiencing these higher qualities and we will observe the experience of exemplars in panel interviews.  Given sufficient time, we will consider the Harmony Triads as representing a transition toward both-and consciousness rather than an exclusive either-or, dualistic, consciousness.

Although the material in this class is directed toward experienced Enneagram students, everyone is welcome to attend and will benefit from participating in this class.
