NINE TRANCES OF THE ENNEAGRAM – Introductory Workshop
One definition of Trance is “a half-conscious state.” We may be aware of the phrase, “I am living on automatic pilot.” As human beings it is hard to be mindful, neutral and conscious all the time, maybe impossible. So, our Ego spends most of the time in the driver seat, responding in predictable ways, making habitual choices. One of the greatest benefits of hypnosis is actually helping us wake up from our many trances: disidentifying from our limiting beliefs, seeding new more expansive beliefs that replace old imprints while allowing real change, and lessening our suffering.
The Enneagram is an ancient model of nine points of view, ego structures, masks and secrets. Buried in the realm of our secrets, what lies beneath our egoic masks, are patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. The Enneagram gives us a map of these default unconscious patterns. We identify our core Enneagram numbers in order to ultimately disidentify with them, allowing a more whole worldview full of possibilities. One of the important skills for an effective hypnotist is being able to target and identify the unconscious belief systems that accompany physical and emotional symptoms. The Enneagram immediately and precisely helps us identify these belief trances so we can loosen the grip of them.
A prominent Enneagram teacher, Tom Condon, effectively blended Ericksonian Hypnosis and the Enneagram decades ago and that’s where I became acquainted with using the two together in my holistic therapeutic and coaching practice. For more info on the Enneagram go to my website page.
Claiming and Living Your Purpose!
Everyone needs a purpose. Your purpose may surprise you if it’s been hidden in plain sight.
This is not a workshop about choosing a career path. This is about claiming why you are here and what gifts you bring to yourself, your family and friends, and the world.
Upon discovering your purpose you will find the key to a wellspring of contentment and inner joy. Work, relationships, and your connection to life will meld, and feel more gratifying!
