Description

Taught by Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes

Instincts and subtypes are an area of Enneagram theory that not much has been written about and in which different schools and teachers have different understandings and approaches. Above all, not much has been offered in terms of actual work on instincts and subtypes for development--until now.

Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes have decided to come together, drawing on their common vision and different backgrounds to provide this unique opportunity in an ambitious 5-day retreat.

Wisdom tradition tells us that it is in becoming aware of our animal nature and using the capacity for conscious reflection (we as humans uniquely have) that we develop the ability to routinely impose an inner witness and observe our instinctual reactions and our passions in action. This kind of inner work gives us the power to intervene to intercept automatic behavior (stimulated by the interaction of the dominant instinct and the lower emotional center) and transcend to a higher level of consciousness.

This retreat will support and encourage you in doing this inner work by providing the information, the experiences, the support, and the path to consciously rise above the habitual automatic reactivity of your personality.

This retreat offers an in-depth intensive experience of the six instinctual sequences (the six possible ways in which the instincts can be “ordered”--previously called “stacking”) and the twenty-seven subtype personalities. Through both group and individual work, film clips, and the latest teachings on the instincts and subtypes, we will learn about this important dimension of the Enneagram model and support each other in understanding the ways in which our dominant, secondary, and repressed instincts drive our behavior. We will also gain insight into how our instincts combine with our passions and type patterns to structure our experience.

You will learn:

  • to recognize and understand defensive behavior driven by your instincts operating through your personality (sub)type patterns
  • to see how your passion and instinctual makeup operate as a unified system
  • to gain insight into how your passion combines with your instinctual needs to shape unconscious behavior
  • much more about the ways in which the 6 instinctual sequences and the 27 subtypes manifest
  • to become more conscious of unconscious, instinct-driven behavior and how to intercept it
  • to compassionately support yourself in doing the work of seeing your animal nature and becoming more human through creating and receiving support around a plan for your self-work
