Anxiety and the Dissolution of the Ego-Identity (Enneagram 7 Practice Group)

January 5 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PST

This session invites participants to reflect on this teaching about Level One of Type Seven:


“Joy is a natural experience that arises spontaneously when we experience ourselves as Being—when we are free of the endless chatter, planning, and projects of our ego minds.”


We do not attain the Level of Liberation automatically, but only when there is the desire for self-actualization. The person has to let go of their particular self-image, work through their Basic Fear (of being trapped in pain and deprivation), and seek their Basic Desire (to be satisfied and content) in the right ways. All of these processes take balance, wisdom, courage, fortitude (persistence) and enough psychological integrity (ego-strength) to withstand the anxiety involved with the dissolution of the ego-identity.


*Please note that this group is dedicated to practices for Enneagram Sevens and will not discuss all Types. In order to learn more about the full Enneagram, please check out the Enneagram resources available on Integral Life, or consider the book, Wisdom of the Enneagram by Don Riso & Russ Hudson (Foreword by Ken Wilber).
