Working with the Dynamism
and Levels of the Enneagram


Presented by Roxanne Howe-Murphy
and Ronna Phifer-Ritchie

September 14 - 16, 2012

Registration is closed

The Levels help us track our movement along a continuum toward more freedom, consciousness, expansiveness, and Being in the higher Levels (or toward more reactivity and self-destructiveness in the lower ones).

The Levels explain some of the most important things that we find in human nature—fluidity and change, resistance and conflict, freedom and compulsion—among many human qualities.

In this workshop, you can expect to:

  • Recognize the dynamics of the psychological and spiritual movement in your life that are explained through the Enneagram.
  • Awaken to inner personal cues that guide you to higher levels of health.
  • Experience a deep grounding in presence, through the teachings, exercises, music, and meditation.
  • Work with the Enneagram in advanced ways that facilitate practical applications in your professional and personal life.
