Join Russ and Cheryl for a yearlong, in-depth study of the Instinctual Variants of the Enneagram. Exploring the instincts helps us to understand where we habitually focus our attention and energy – for better or worse – and what we need to do differently to create a stronger sense of security, to enjoy deeper more meaningful connections with others, and to experience more energy and aliveness in everyday life.
The instincts represent the basic driving forces that operate throughout our daily life. By observing ourselves through the lens of our instinctual behaviors, we learn about how well we take care of our basic needs, how we navigate relationships, whether or not we cultivate meaningful connections with others, and how able we are to welcome change and take risks. The instincts are clearly defined and observable in their own right, independent of your enneagram type. When developed and consciously balanced, life not only improves dramatically on a practical level, we gain access to higher states of consciousness that allow us to operate with more clarity, wisdom, and love.
