In previous classes, and throughout the Enneagram world, there are many descriptions of the instincts and of their various combinations. While we can, in some sense, look at these patterns as types, it is important not to confuse them with our identity, and to remember that we learn these patterns for the sake of finding better balance in our lives. In this session, Russ will offer insights and tips about the obstacles and opportunities for working with the instincts. While the recognition of these patterns can occur quickly, actually shifting them takes time and persistence, and a willingness to see many deeply held defensive convictions. Yet when we do, we establish a life in which the blessing of our spiritual nature can more freely flow and flourish.
After the 60 minute talk, there will be approximately 30 minutes for question and answer.
