The arts of healing come to us in many forms, some self-applied and some practiced on and for others. Some are designed to maintain well-being and others to regain it. Over the years our offerings in the many fields of health have included Movement Arts (Yoga, Qigong, Dance), Healing Touch (Massage, Natural Body Care, Sacred Sexuality), Medicinals (Plant-based Medicines, Homeopathy, Flower Essences), and Social Well-being (Relationships, Communications, Expressive Arts & Celebrations) and more. In a way, all the learning we strive at to be able to share is about healing some part of the web of life, be it the inner, outer or interconnected world.
This year, our healing journey begins with an adventure into the inner world of the Enneagram, an ancient mystic tool for discerning energetic patterns and their predictable movements through our lives and psyches. Although the Enneagram can be applied to things, such as the achievement of a goal or the completion of a project, the focus of our study is the Enneagram of Conscious Being. With this approach, we explore the patterns of the ego-personality as they shape, constrain and cause us to suffer the frustrations and repetitious dilemmas of Mistaken Identity: The Enneagram’s Revelation of the True Nature of the Human Soul.
