Enneagram Weekend: To Forget the Self
Would you like a new way to look at stuck places and access transformation? You’ve experienced the benefits of meditation practice. You are grateful for the groundedness and mental clarity it brings you. With this clarity, you’ve been able to release some attachments and make positive changes. Yet some things change slower than you would like or remain stuck.
Seeing your own habits, thinking, and believing, is hard to do. The Enneagram helps you to see yourself in new ways and find freedom from ways of being that are not serving you. When the Enneagram comes together with Buddhist practice, the way opens to a clear and discerning view of karmic patterns.
