Engaging the Enneagram as Wisdom Practice with Jeanine Siler Jones

Mar 12-15, 2020

Know your conditioning so your heart can be a more faithful instrument.
     ~ Cynthia Bourgeault

Join us as we come together and experience a practical engagement of the Wisdom lineage through the lens of the Enneagram. How can this map illuminate our habitual patterns so that we might soften our identification and participate in life more directly and authentically? How might it guide us in tracking all three centers of knowing so that we bring more of ourselves into Presence? How might we surrender more fully our attachments and habits as we shift the quality of our attention and open into the possibility of a more immediate and reciprocal relationship with the Divine in our lives?

With alert observation and surrendered mind, find the moment when thought arises before it gets attached to emotions/habits.
     ~Evagrius

We will follow a Wisdom School rhythm with meditation, sacred chanting, Lectio Divina, movement and mindful work. We will engage somatic and attention practices, exploring the Wisdom roots of the Enneagram, and tracking what jams the signals around our hearts. Together we will create a walking Enneagram and let this ancient symbol teach us. We will play with listening, silence and sharing, and there will be free time to integrate, rest and explore the beauty of Rock Point.
