Clearing Our Path to Love: Understanding and Loosening Our Resistance by Type – Session 1b
November 28, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am EST$60
Session 1b: Opening to Loving Ourselves (smaller group) ~~
Online with Sue ~~
Saturday November 28: 2 – 4pm ~~
What would our world and our lives be like, if we could love ourselves, each other and this blessed earth we live on, unconditionally? What would our world and our lives be like, if we could live in our gifts and others could live in theirs? If we could not just acknowledge, but accept the earth’s invitation to be in a reciprocal and loving relationship?
How extraordinary would a world like that be? Sometimes we get glimpses – but it is not a ‘given’ in our daily lives. Why is that?
Loving requires an open heart. The Enneagram suggests that when we are contracted, we protect our hearts and avoid our own and others’ emotions. We do this in 9 different ways, for 9 different reasons. If we feel we might be overwhelmed by or ashamed of what we learn about ourselves, we often unconsciously. If we feel vulnerable, afraid, powerless or out of control, we avoid. This is done at the expense of a deeper, richer, grounded and graced life.
To me, one of the great gifts of the Enneagram is its invitation to become more emotionally resilient. By noticing and learning to be accepting of the way our Type works, we become less reactive and more able to respond in constructive ways in the moment.
In this particularly challenging time, we need emotional resilience and stamina. We need to be able to see reality, feel what we feel and choose to do what is ours to do.
With all this in mind, I am offering a series of gatherings on 3 consecutive Saturdays. The theme is “Clearing Our Path to Love: Understanding and Loosening Our Resistance by Type.”
Saturday, November 28 – Opening to Loving Ourselves
Saturday, December 5 – Opening to Loving Others
Saturday, December 12 – Opening to a Reciprocal, Loving Relationship with the Earth
The following is the format for each Saturday –
Morning 10 – 12 (a larger group $30)
Afternoon 2-4 (small group $60)
(or pay what you can)
Any workshops being held at Strong Hollow have a suggested cost, but are offered as “pay what you can”. We do not want cost to be a reason to not attend.
