Personality Type is a highly sophisticated set of beliefs, behaviors and reactions that have been tried out and reinforced over time creating automatic, unconscious patterns and habits. Some of these patterns serve us well, others do not.

The good news is, it’s possible to experience increased emotional freedom and less defensiveness! The first step is to become aware of your patterns in order to be in choice about how you respond to life – instead of reacting from habit.

Through teachings, exercises, practices and dialogues you will learn:

  • The habitual emotional pattern (Passion) of your Type
  • The relationship between your Passion and your behavior
  • How your defense mechanism both serves and hinders you
  • How to loosen the hold these automatic patterns have on you

The benefits of increased awareness and loosening of your defensive barriers and emotional habits are:

  • Greater spiritual, psychological and emotional freedom
  • More ease in your life and your relationships
  • The ability to access the Virtue of Type such as Innocence, Balance, Courage and Serenity

This workshop is part of the AEA Core Curriculum. Recommended preparation:  Students should be familiar with the Enneagram model and know their core Enneagram Type.
