Workshop

The wisdom of the Enneagram has its origins in ancient Sufi and Christian mysticism, introduced to western thought by the likes of George Gurdjieff. It is a dynamic system used to identify and help transform the unconscious motivations and obstacles we contend with as human beings and to enhance our understandings of other people. In a compassionate and non-judgmental way, it illuminates and specifies 9 universal ego strategies that are both at the heart of our repeating unhealthy patterns, but which also contain our natural gifts. With uncanny accuracy, it is useful with any therapy or practice to guide and clarify our self-reflection, awaken us to our unconscious motivations (shadow), and improve our inter-personal relationships.

You will learn:
- use in clinical practice; self-observation, change and personal development
- overview of the types: Heart 2,3,4, Head 5,6,7, Body   8,9,1

OUR MISSION

The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.
