Enneagram Two – Subtypes and Essence

‘Subtypes and Essence’ is an advanced Enneagram workshop for people who are familiar with the basics of all nine types and who know their own type with reasonable certainty. The three subtypes, present within each of the nine types, are instinctual responses and basic behaviour in the three main arenas of life: self-preservation, social interaction, and one-to-one intimate relationship. As our most unconscious strategies, they are often the greatest barrier to growth and higher awareness. Therefore, to identify and understand the subtleties of our subtype is therefore to confront what really holds us back from awareness of our Essence.

Led by: Karen Webb

Please arrive by 6pm on Friday.  Course ends at 4pm on Sunday.

‘Subtypes and Essence’ is an advanced Enneagram workshop for people who are familiar with the basics of all nine types and who know their own type with reasonable certainty.

The three subtypes, present within each of the nine types, are instinctual responses and basic behaviour in the three main arenas of life: self-preservation, social interaction, and one to one intimate relationship. As our most unconscious strategies, they are often the greatest barrier to growth and higher awareness. Therefore, to identify and understand the subtleties of our subtype is therefore to confront what really holds us back from awareness of our Essence.

This workshop will deepen understanding of the nine types in four main areas:

    The ways in which Passion and Fixation manifest in subtypes
    Each type’s Holy Virtue and Holy Idea as aspects of Essence
    Head, heart and belly as centres of spiritual perception
    Psychological and spiritual growth using the Enneagram

The workshop will again be led by Karen Webb, who is leading an introductory course on Enneagram at Ammerdown on 26 to 28 April.

Karen has taught the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition since 1991, and focuses on facilitating spiritual and psychological growth. She is a graduate of the Enneagram Professional Training Program with Helen Palmer. A lifelong student, formally and informally, of psychology and comparative religion, her work prior to this was in management consultancy, training and Human Resource Development.
