Would you like a new way to look at stuck places and access transformation? You’ve experienced the benefits of meditation practice. You are grateful for the groundedness and mental clarity it brings you. With this clarity, you’ve been able to release some attachments and make positive changes. Yet some things change slower than you would like or remain stuck. The Enneagram is a well-developed and trusted system of naming common karmic patterns.

The weekend as a whole will be a combination of learning new concepts, self-reflection, meditation, whole group discussion, and embodied practice. Facilitated by Kakumyo and LaShelle Yoan Lowe-Charde.
