Understand how your types combination positively and negatively impact your relationship by comparing them online. Put your type in the context of the unhealthy, average, and healthy levels of expression. Explore how to communicate your values and needs, and how to meet those of your partner. Become informed about one of three instinctual variants that underlie each type that are crucial for you to get along. Co-create a rewarding and thriving love relationship by creating synergy between your Enneagram types.

Saturday, February 5th, 9:00 AM UTC – Online Practice Group “Attachment Styles”

Learn and practice through a test how you and others react differently under relationship stress. There are four general attachment styles that are formed in early childhood and impact our adult life. Secure, anxious, avoidant, and anxious/avoidant (also called disorganized or ambivalent). Once one of the styles is established, it stays with us and shows up in the ways we form or avoid intimate relationships. Understanding attachment styles is essential, because of the insights they offer how partners may be emotionally limited in their capacity to relate. This understanding can greatly help us to realize in what areas we need to heal to become more securely attached in our love relationships.

Saturday, February 12th, 9:00 AM UTC / Sunday, February 13th, 6:00 PM UTC – Online Practice Group “The Unconscious”

 

Learn and practice how to own your primary emotional fight, flight or freeze reactions to your partners reality instead of projecting them outward onto him or her (you are responsible for making me react/feel that way). Separate your observations from your emotions. Get in touch with the underlying vulnerable feelings that are protected by your primary emotional reactions. Take responsibility for your feelings by (re-)owning and disidentifying from them (I have feelings but I am not my feelings), instead of projecting, dissociating, repressing, denying, or splitting them off.

Once you feel more calm and more in tune with yourself, re-enter the communication with your partner in a way that is less protected and less attached to your unconscious defense mechanisms in an honest and vulnerable way.

The results of this “undefended love” approach of mutual sharing between couples are increasingly greater levels of inner peace and joy, and a deepening of intimacy, love, and connection with your partner if he or she is emotionally available, instead of fighting and separation. However, the “undefended love approach” does not mean to have weak, unhealthy, or porous boundaries, and to accept all kinds of abusive behavior, such as breaking agreements, taking advantage of you, or being intentionally physically or emotionally harmed by your partner. Instead, it allows us to heal our unconscious (including shadow) by creating a “coherent narrative” about our past.

Saturday, February 19th, 9:00 AM UTC / Sunday, February 20th, 6:00 PM UTC – Online Practice Group “Healing our Shadow” 

Learn and practice how to use relationship challenges for ongoing learning, healing, growing and awakening. When we have negative emotional reactions to our partners reality, we often blame him or her for hurting us, when in fact they just touch or trigger an old inner wound, shadow, false identity, or attachment that we have. Engage in a simple but profound five-step process to identify this false identity. Receive an affirmation and additional information about your true identity that you can use to heal your wound. This practice allows you to own your emotional reactions to your partner’s reality and develop self-compassion. It also allows you to no longer feel responsible for your partner’s emotional reactions to your reality, and to meet him or her with love, compassion and understanding. This allows for your mutual healing and growth and deepening intimacy.
