Integrating to Action and Will Through Building Decision Making Muscles (Enneagram 9 Practice Group)
This event starts in:
“Moving beyond the distraction age and towards our own integration requires action, will, and decisiveness. Ennea 9s (and others as well) are haunted by inertia; an object at rest tends to stay at rest. For many 9s that means being glued to the couch. So getting ourselves (or ennea 9s we live with) to make a decision can feel like a Herculean effort. Beyond just E9s, many of us in the Integral community can belabor the amount of effort going into taking decisive action by weighing all the perspectives that we have available to us from AQAL. FOMO can be wrapped up in decision as well. So how do we cut through all the possibilities to find our own truth succinctly, clearly, and make decisions easier? Let’s explore how in this next practice session based on getting into a state of decisive action.”
*Please note that this group is dedicated to practices for Enneagram Nines 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).
Meet Your Practice Leader
Kevin previously was the Director of Training and Development for Integral Coaching Canada and was faculty there for 8 years while maintaining his own successful coaching practice. He recently took a short- term “early retirement” for 4 years in the form of recuperating from a Traumatic Brain Injury. Prior to that he was also at UC Santa Cruz for the last 15+ years teaching Integrally-informed somatic arts in Warrior Yoga, Meditation, Acrobatics, and Mixed Martial Arts to students, athletes, and faculty looking to embody new potential and find grace in the face of personal struggles. He also spent 9 of those years teaching yoga to at-risk youth in the public schools and prisons. Kevin co-wrote an article for JITP applying ICC’s approach to climate change. He is currently building a school of practice for those who want to impact wider scale changes in the world. And in one of his more remarkable developmental hurdles he got over his commitment fears and got married to the amazing Tami. He has a rich ILP base especially with many Integral Spiritual Teachers, a Masters in Psychology, a background in ecological design, and a firm commitment to finding practical applications of “Integral” that reduce suffering and increase humor.
