We Are Here: An Exploration Into How Types 8, 9, and 1 Arise From the Life Force of the Body Center
Life is infused with energy, aliveness, and power. When we allow this to flow through and with us, we encounter and can learn to live from somatic intelligence. This is true for all 9 types, and, in particular, the body types: 8, 9 and 1. Join Maria Jose Munita, president of the International Enneagram Association, and Michael Naylor, IEA professional teacher and Riso-Hudson faculty and authorized teacher as they offer their perspective on the capacities of the body center... the ways each of the body types loves these qualities, and the characteristic ways they distort their contact with aliveness itself. Be prepared to be inspired to trust your body and its innate wisdom.
During this exciting session, you'll discover:
- How each of the body types can embody aliveness in each moment
- Ways that each body type depletes their energy by defending against the perceived loss of contact with boundless life force
- The journey from contraction to relaxation & from ego to Essence, in each body type
