Exploring the Grace and Grit of being an Ennea 9
Each enneagram type has a positive and negative. That’s an oversimplified way of looking at it. The enneagram and our typology is meant to show us “what we are not” actually. The “vice” is the mask that our personality wears to avoid very specific aspects of our own spiritual essence – our virtue. The big work of enneagram work is mostly releasing and removing what does not belong in our personality so that we can more come from essence. There’s more nuance here too then just saying “get over your ego”. We will dive into the details of what this looks like for 9s and do some inquiry into what does this look like for you specifically. While primarily focused on 9s, you will find this relevant to other types as well and if time allows I can briefly highlight individual other types.
*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).
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.
