What is the Enneagram?
The Enneagram offers a clear map of nine distinct ego structures, their focus of attention, motivations beneath behaviors, core fears, and inherent strengths.
Rather than focusing on external behaviors as other systems do, the Enneagram brings to consciousness “why we do what we do” and indicates how we go on automatic.
As we deepen our self-awareness, we become less reactive, more curious, and more compassionate.
Understanding the nine different filters and motivations allows us to be more patient with differing points of view and lessen our judging.
The Five Stages of the The Center’s Enneagram Pathway
Automatic responses to life’s situations and people. You have little curiosity about self. Asking: Do I find myself automatically reacting to life’s situations and people?
Begins to create some internal spaciousness. Develops more curiosity about self. Engages in short periods of presence. Asking: Am I aware of when I am living on automatic?
Self-awareness is deepening with the work of shifting the false narratives and moving beyond ego ideal. Asking: Am I in touch with my inherent goodness?
Self-acceptance grows. Striving and grasping lessen. Non-reactive and exhibits the virtue. Asking: Can I experience and allow my sensations, emotions, and thoughts in the moment?
Compassionate presence and access to emotions as they arise, becoming the opposite of our Type, ego ideal is softened. Asking: Do I experience myself as compassionate towards myself and others?
