Enneagram Alive Webinars
Enneagram Alive Monthly Webinars
Enneagram Alive is running a series of monthly webinars* offering inspiration from a range of talented people within our network and beyond.
Title: The New Year Enneagram: Re-sourcing your True Self
Presenter: Ingrid Hurwitz
Date:Tues16th Jan, 2024 19:30 - 21:00 GMT
Enneagram Alive is delighted to kick off the New Year with our dear friend in
South Africa, Ingrid Hurwitz. In this month’s intriguing and very apt session,
we will focus on the meaning of rebirth and renewal from an Enneagram perspective.
We’ll be exploring the ongoing cycles of transformation as well as the radical inner
shifts that dedicated Enneagram students describe. How does this work lead to the
emergence of a new sense of self, while “the past me”, trapped in self-destructive patterns,
seems almost unrecognisable? Do the words "new year resolution" suddenly take on a new ring and meaning? How is this system a catalyst for such radical change in our states of being and self-experience?
Drawing on trauma studies and mysticism, this thought-provoking session will stimulate new insights, whether you’re new to the Enneagram or a seasoned practitioner. It’s even possible that our shared exploration will leave you with and a more subtle sense of the new You that is already re-sourcing itself within.
Ingrid Hurwitz is the Founder of Takdīr Transformation (IES). She has 25 years experience in designing learning programmes and facilitating experiential psychospiritual transformation processes. She established Takdīr (Now an IEA-Accredited Enneagram School) in 2015.She is passionate about healing as a foundation for us all to have a self-experience of joy and authentic connection to life and to one another. She is dedicated to providing advanced Trauma-Informed Enneagram Practitioner Training for therapists, coaches, facilitators, spiritual directors and other healing professionals. A significant part of her training involves helping Enneagram practitioners to use the latest trauma knowledge to facilitate clients becoming safely embodied in the here and now. A big part of this is also for us to become aware of “our Type in the room” and all that that means for how we work with the Enneagram in safe, ethical and unshaming ways. Her work draws on Cognitive Science, Somatic Psychology, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Spiritual Traditions. She is currently writing a Ph.D. on the Enneagram path and furthering her trauma studies with the TRF, NARM and NICABM.

Title: A Journey through the Enneagram
Presented by: Martin Quigley
Based on his soon-to-be published book of the the same title, Martin took us on an enlightening journey, demonstrating how - by using the inner observer and the power of self awareness - we can begin to relax and deconstruct our defence mechanism and move towards positive change. Lively breakout sessions gave participants a chance to let their imaginations play by asking themselves releavnt type specicifc "what if ..... " questions and share their experiences.
Title: The Power of Music and Resonance to transform your Energetic Pattern
Presented by: Martin Salzwedel
This workshop gave us some food for thought, testing our energies resonances with musical exercises (!), singing, and discussion in breakout groups to talk about how we experience our energetic drive. And how things change when we shift our energy.
Title: Experiencing the energy of your Enneatype through the Mudras
Presented by: Anna Fra
In this webinar, Anna led us on a fascinating journey through the Mudras of the passions and virtues of all nine Enneagram points. We had the opportunity to observe her demonstrate the Mudras and then to perform them ourselves, and to discuss the experience of really feeling and somatically sensing the energies of our type's passions and virtues.
Title: The Enneagram's Three Centres: History, Myth and Experience
Presented by: Uranio Paes
Enneagram Alive was delighted to welcome Uranio Paes, a world-renowned Enneagram teacher known for his innovation, powerful facilitation and thought-leadership. Uranio Paes illuminatd the distinctive ways in which body, heart, and head types work, given their dominant intelligences. He explained the theory around the centres that he and Beatrice Chestnut subscribe to and and some of the ways this may differ from the approach others take, both in theory and in practice. We heard about the Chestnut Paes Enneagram Academy approach and the reasons for it, as well as having a taster of what it's like to work directly 'in the room' with Uranio.
Title: Love and Connection in the Three Centres
Presented by: Peter O'Hanrahan
What can the Enneagram teach us about love, connection and human relationships? Peter reflected that love is easy to say but hard to define. It means different things to different people. Perhaps the most common meaning is that love is a feeling in the heart. Yet there is much more to “love” than our feelings. At times the centres work together, but not always. Understanding the role of our three centers show us how we love and how we want to be loved. Knowing our Enneagram Type helps us work with our ego defenses, our projections and idealisations our emotional habits, and shows us how we can develop our capacity to love through the body, heart and mind.
This well- attended webinar saw 38 people, led by Peter, share their experience and reflect on and compare the various ways of receiving and giving love through the three centres, and how this is influenced by type structure and how they show up in their relationships and in love.
Title: Is Modern Science Catching Up with Ancient Wisdom?
Presented by: Dr Henrie Lidiard
Spiritual traditions, including the Enneagram, have long talked about human beings having ‘3 centres’ of intelligence. However, for some these descriptions can seem a bit vague, unsubstantiated or ‘new age’ in nature, as if the ‘centres’ might just be a metaphor, an ‘energy’ or an idea.
However, there is now compelling evidence for their physical location, structure and function coming from the rapidly evolving field of neuroscience. Diverse studies now show that we do indeed have ‘brains’ or ‘centres of embodied intelligence’ in our heart and our gut, as well as in our head
Title: Introduction to the The Somatic Enneagram
Presented by: Marion Gilbert
As we start to use the Enneagram to understand ourselves better, we come
to have more options for how we respond to life, rather than being
“on automatic” in our personality’s type patterns. Our past history has
hard-wired us to stick with what we know, our type patterns, because they keep us safe. But keeping safe can keep us small and unable to fully open to the wholeness of who we truly are.
Title: Are you my Type, Am I yours? The Enneagram in Relationships
Presented by: Rosemary Cowan
In honour of the age-old celebration of love on Valentine's Day, Enneagram Alive is thrilled to have Rosemary Cowan, renowned Enneagram Teacher and couples counsellor, present this webinar on the relevance of the Enneagram in growing and maintaining happy relationhips
Title: The Enneagram and Dreamwork
Presented by: Veronica Whitty
This webinar by Veronica Whitty provided us with a fascinating and unique opportunity to work on dreams. Dreams show us the consequences of what we are doing and inform us when the wishes of the ego are threatening our psychic or spiritual well-being. The more the ego censors the dream message, the more disturbing the dreams become. We use dreams as a mirror for issues.This workhop was an amazing journey into the world of dreams and a big thank you to those who were prepared and brave enough to bring their dream to the workshop.
Title: Getting Creative with the Flow of Life
Presented by: Helen English
Helen presented an intriguing study and interpretation of importance of symbols and how hese symbols map the flow of energy in our environment and within people too, as individuals, and groups. A lovely, interative webinar tdemonstrating how moving proactively with the wings and arrows of the Enneagram becomes a language of change and continuous movement. A language that helps us engage more positively with spirit, our own essence and with the world around us.
Title: Typing, Mistyping,and a new Type Test
Presented by: Beatrice Chestnut
When we learn the Enneagram and all the many insights it gives us into our personalities, the first challenge is to find your correct type. In this webinar, Enneagram teacher and author, Beatrice Chestnut, discussed the sources of mistyping, what it takes to find your type in an accurate way, and the new type test she co-created with UK native Fergus Sullivan and her business and teaching partner, Uranio Paes.
Title: An Introduction to Focusing: Discovering the More of Who We Are
Presented by: Therese Ryan
Focusing is a gentle and natural practice during which we bring a compassionate curiosity to our felt sense of a situation, allowing something new and fresh to emerge. We experience the "more" of who we are, beneath the patterns of our type. This experiential workshop will introduce you to the gentle power of Focusing. "Nothing that feels bad is ever the last step". Eugene Gendlin. Therese is a Narrative Enneagram teacher and a Focusing Professional.
Title: The Enneagram's Ancient Egyptian Origins
Presented by: Teresa Daniels
Uplifted by an Egyptian pilgrimage with Enneagram master Russ Hudson, Teresa shared photos, stories and learning on the roots of the contemporary Enneagram that lie deep in the Egyptian past. The talk followed the footsteps of Gurdjieff and the Desert Fathers and Mothers, through sacred sites and mystical temples in an ancient land, to find out what may be uncovered about the Enneagram symbol and its origins, so often described as lost in antiquity?
