    Gawd they really have a remarkable skill to make everything sound like a cheap infomercial.

    Does look interesting. Would be keen to hear the Chestnut, Almaas and Palmer ones in particular.

    I wonder how they are doing it at no cost. There must be a catch.

    Yep, when you sign up they insta try to sell you something (access to all the talks for $100), the free covers talks as they happen and for a limited time afterwards (I expect about 24 hours). The pitch would be wanting people to pay to be able to download the talks after they're no longer free, I suspect.

    Other than that, it looks legit 'free'.

    Default Free (if inconveniently scheduled) online Enneagram Summit

    There's an upcoming online "Enneagram Summit" featuring people like Helen Palmer (of narrative traditional fame), the Fauvres (of tri-type fame), etc. I thought I'd mention it, in case people were interested. It runs June 3rd through June 5th, and the schedule is here.

    Note that even though it is free, one does have to register with an email address. Upon registration, one is immediately hit up for the pay for "upgrade" that grants access to a transcript and audio recordings. Feel free to resist.

    (I hope, since this is free, this doesn't count as commercial promotion. If it does, mods should feel free to remove this post.)

    If anyone participates in parts of this, perhaps you can provide a trip report of key things that you've learned or taken away from the conference and post it here.

    I signed up for the "upgrade" (audio and transcripts), since the broadcast schedule doesn't work with my work schedule. If stuff doesn't get covered by others, I'll try to tackle it over time (no promises).

    I'm gradually working my way through the recordings. Here are a few notes on the first 3 from June 3rd.

    The Enneagram as the Magical Path to a Fulfilling Life Through Integration, the Transformer of Life and Love with David Daniels

    Generally a solid intro to the enneagram from one of the founders of the narrative school. A solid introductory presentation.

    Nitpicks:
    - The MC (Jessica Dibb) comes across as a little woo-woo to my taste.
    - Use of the word "magical" is grating, considering all the tedious effort that goes into actually working through issues.
    - Daniels occasionally gets words switched around in a few spots. Might confuse newcomers to the Enneagram.


    Where the Brain, Mind, Temperament and the Enneagram Meet with Dan Siegel

    aside: I really enjoyed Siegel's book, The Developing Mind (highly recommend it, if you have the patience to plow through some dense terminology and language), and his work on meditation. His other books are decent, but I found many of them to be more accessible retreads of The Developing Mind.

    In this talks, he talks some about epigenetics (which I always find fascinating), and how complex the interplay between genes and the environment is.

    Seigel's background in more in neurobiology, and in particular how neurobiology works in interpersonal relationship. I had never heard him talk about the enneagram before, so his perspective is interesting. Apparently he (along with some others) have done some introductory research into relating enneagram type to temperament and attachment theory.

    His team's early findings are that temperament and level of attachment during childhood do not correlate to enneagram type. How securely attached someone was does correlate with mental/emotional health levels.

    His other early finding is that he relates the enneagram centers to the thee basic negative emotions: anger (gut, although he thinks that's not a good term here), sadness (heart) and fear (head). He then talks about three directions of attention: inner, outer and inner/outer. Combining those predominate negative emotions and the three directions of attention yields a correspondence to the enneagram types.

    He does go off on a personal theory (his own, not related to others participating in the study) about the hemispheres of the brain, relating anger to the left hemisphere, and sadness to right hemisphere. He would relate fear more with the amygdala, but suspects that it plays a roll in the other types, too. (Personally, I'm a little dubious about the relation to hemispheres of the brain to enneagram type, but time could prove me wrong.)

    A Pragmatic Approach to the Enneagram with Mario Sikora

    I was all ready to dislike this talk based on the first minute or two, since the speaker set off my smug, corporate, ESJ detector (forgive me: bad work experiences)... but the talk actually turned out to be pretty decent. This guy works with groups of corporate clients, and also does some personal coaching. Since his clients generally have neither the time nor inclination to become introspective enneagram experts, he focuses on how to shift their habitual patterns to be less restrictive and more flexible.

    So, for an eight (and Sikora himself is an 8), he might talk about how one might be MORE powerful if one is nicer to folks (therefore reducing unnecessary conflict), and if one shares a little more about oneself. For an nine, he might talk about how one could experience MORE peace in the long run, if one faces and resolves conflicts while they are small, rather than letting them balloon into something huge.

    When asked about the MBTI, says he's found the enneagram to be more useful, and that there's no correlation between MBTI type and enneagram type.

    Overall, I was surprised that I like this talk. I still haven't found the enneagram to be useful in the workplace generally (except with more dysfunctional coworkers), so this talk challenged that a little bit.

    The Founders: Unique Contributions with Kathy Hurley and Jerry Wagner

    This one feels a bit like sitting down and having tea with some older friends.

    Kathy Hurley: Seems super sweet and midwestern. Not a ton of new material to talk about, but some good thoughts on the centers relating to Christian Theological Virtues (faith, hope and love), etc. She's also big with the superlatives, which sounds odd to me (being pretty understated, myself).

    Jerry Wagner: Seems like a nice guy. A genial older 5... in charge of the peer reviewed enneagram journal (includes a plug for submission of enneagram articles based on some empirical research).

    On the MBTI: "There's a loose correlation... but you can't predict one from the other."

    Interestingly, he wasn't able to validate the enneagram arrows in the one study that looked into it

    Wagner helpfully (I think) expressed doubt about a messianic, world-saving role for the enneagram, but says it can be helpful in personal development. That a nice dose of reality from some of the other speakers. He also expressed hope fore more empirical enneagram research (which I'm all for, but it seems to be the enneagram is more challenging that the Big Five or the MBTI that way).

    (Jessica Dibb pushes back a bit in her thanks to the Shift Network, talking about "global change," etc.)



    Nine Pathways to Authentic Personhood with Russ Hudson

    (note: Hudson uses the word "presence" an awful lot, with a particular emphasis. Darkly amusing to imagine him saying the word "presents" like an evil kid before Christmas)

    First 10 minutes are a history of Hudson's early experiences with the enneagram.

    Emphasis on the enneagram as a path of growth, rather than as a typology system. The important part is "the way we spoil everything..." which is also out greatest gift. Talks more about the history of the enneagram.

    Nice thumbnails of the 9 types. Interested to hear another big name author... he tends to come across as a Californian spiritual seeker. Still, I have home props for his focus on what's important and not getting lost in typing minutia.



    The Somatic Enneagram and Joyful Living with Andrea Isaacs and Peter O'Hanrahan

    Andrea Isaacs sounds excited and talks quickly. "Using motion to explore the enneagram types." Comes from a dancing/choreography background, and was fascinated to figure out how to embody the energies of different enneagram types. Different phrases and body poses used to access the energy of different types.

    O'Hanrahan: different typical breathing patterns for different types. Type 8 might breath high in the chest (to raise energy), while nines might breathe more in the blly. So, can use active breathing practices to try to access the power of different types. Working with the body means working with the feelings.

    An intriguing session... was interesting to hear people who do different kind of enneagram somatic work talk. Kind of challenging for someone who tends to have an overly internal approach to things.


    The Original Purpose Of the Enneagram with A. H. Almaas

    This session spends a fair amount of time on the virtues and the holy idea. In Almaas's view, the enneagram as it has been popularized has tended to focus more on the psychological aspects of the enneagram, so his talk focuses more on the spiritual aspects and the positive aspects of the enneagram. Parts of this talk were intriguing, even though personally I haven't yet gotten much use out of the positive side of the enneagram... so far all the value for me seems to be in the focus upon and awareness of unhealthy habitual defense mechanisms.

    (edit: These are my very subjective, biased notes. Since my time and energy were limited, I wasn't trying to be particularly objective. I'm hoping others will post their impressions in order to create a more balanced picture)
