Enneagram: Part Two

As our second exploration of the Enneagram we are going to hear from Helen Palmer, one of the most influential spiritual teachers of our time and author of what I believe to be the definitive text about the Enneagram.  She was lead presenter at a workshop this past spring held in Boulder and sponsored by Integral Life.

I have selected portions of one of the teachings she offered at the workshop which includes a series of guided meditations.  I have watched the dvd three times now and I continue to glean new insights from it.  No matter how much or how little you know about this powerful tool for personal transformation, there is something here for you.

We will begin at 10:00 in the lounge at the north end of the second floor at Pilgrim.  The building will be open because there will be folks there starting to lay out Christmas decorations.  We will join them for lunch at noon.

School for Contemplative Practices: Enneagram

EnneagramWe had such a positive response to the session in October on the Enneagram that we decided to go a bit deeper.  We will meet Saturday, November 23 at Pilgrim Church starting at 10:00 and going until noon.

If you are unfamiliar with the enneagram you may want to read through any one of a number of online resources.  A simple place to start is with this pdf that Integral Life is promoting.  One of the resources at the end of document is a dvd of a workshop last spring featuring Helen Palmer.  We will be viewing one of her presentations as part of this event. 

We will share a light lunch following the class.

School for Living date change reminder

We have been typically meeting on the second and fourth Thursdays but with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming those fourth Thursdays are pretty well booked.  So the next events are the first and third Thursdays and that means this next Thursday, November 7th. 

The content for the class is one I taught this past Sunday at Kirkwood UCC and it went very well.  We will have an opportunity to go deeper into Creative Conflict Resolution between now and Christmas and then start a new series after the first of the year.
