Working with our Inner Polarities

Whenever we identify with idealized aspects of our personality (me), we tend to dis-identify with our opposite attributes (not-me). When we are divided against ourselves, we appear as one-dimensional personalities with internal conflicts and exasperating relationships. Re-owning our disavowed parts and integrating our inner polarities lead to inner wholeness with an enriched sense of self, increased energy, and undistorted connections with others.

This program will explore each Enneagram style's ego identifications (me) and their shadows (not-me), the defenses used against our unacceptable parts , and ways of reacquainting us with and reintegrating our disowned characteristics. In short, we’ll learn the 4 R’s: how to recognize, re-label, re-own, and re-cycle all of ourselves.
