Workshop 8 : Month 8 : Type 8
Come learn the lessons of the Protector. This workshop is presented in the method of the Narrative Tradition and is offered as part 15 in a year-long meditation series focused on embodying each of the 9 higher aspects of the Enneagram types.
Enneagram 8 is an individual of enormous personal power, sharp instincts and fearless heart. Often misunderstood and misrepresented in Enneagram conversations, these individual offer a great example of how mistaken we can be about eachother. Representing the aspect of us all that is self-reliant and hopes to "muscle through" the hard things, type 8 illustrates the value of becoming more finely attuned to the subtle messages we sometimes miss in the process of surviving.
In this 90-minute workshop we will explore the themes and perspective of the Enneagram 8. This meeting includes a didactic overview of the structure, self-inquiry exercises and a 8-themed practice and mantra to explore for this month. This series is focused on appreciating and cultivating the lessons embodied in this structure in our own lives, no matter our type.
