This three-day course presents a thorough introduction to seminal Enneagram author Claudio Naranjo’s latest and most complete descriptions of the Enneagram’s 27 personality subtypes. Each of the 27 subtype characters represents a distinct personality that results from the dynamic mixture of the central passion and patterns of the type (one of nine) and one of three biological survival drives, for either self-preservation, social relationships, or one-to-one bonding.
This workshop will expose you to a whole new level of the Enneagram system. The three versions of each of the nine personality types can be seen to be unique personalities with their own, more specific, characteristic focus of attention and habitual patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. In addition, all of the 27 subtype personalities also have their own particular growth path toward manifesting their higher potential. (And within this version of the 27 subtypes there are types that are not described by the nine types!)
Through vivid descriptions, group discussion, film clips, and type panels of experienced self-observers speaking about their subtypes, this interactive workshop will help you develop a more complete understanding of the content and operation of the 27 subtype personalities.
The additional information provided by the subtypes adds a deeper dimension to the Enneagram map of personality. You will learn how the 27 subtype personalities help you to: • find your correct type and subtype and learning more about your subtype personality, • understand why two people of the same type can differ, • improve your skill at guiding people in finding their correct type, • develop greater awareness of your most unconscious tendencies, and • access more specific, nuanced information about how to use the Enneagram system to enhance your overall level of consciousness.
