The Three Centers of the Enneagram: Mental, Emotional, and Physical
This event starts in:
A revolution in the understanding of the 3 centers: A slow, fine-tuned way of being with self and others.
We are deeply conditioned by the environment in which we live which is filtered through the 3 centers of our human organism: Mental, Emotional and Feeling/Physical.
Given our Enneagram patterns of attention, emotion and behavior, we overuse one of these centers, use a second as an auxiliary center and unconsciously underuse our “buried” center.
In this workshop, Leslie outlines how these crucial centers function in our daily lives and teaches spiritual practice designed to engage you in the ever evolving, ongoing shift from automaticity to consciousness to intentional living.
Leslie’ wisdom and practice centered approach brings the Enneagram from a cognitive understanding of these 9 patterns of attention to an integrated experience of working with the habits of our type structure on the spot, in the present moment. Practice and repetition is key.
Meet Your Practice Leader
A teacher, theologian, coach and Master Facilitator, Leslie Hershberger has been offering corporate and contemplative workshops, retreats, keynotes throughout the US and in Europe for over 20 years.
Her passion at work is grounded in her belief that deeper teachings be accessible to people “on the ground” in their lives of love and work which are the sectors of life where we’re most vulnerable to “going on automatic” when our greatest of intentions get derailed. It’s why a practice centered approach is core to her teaching. In her work, she’s less interested in an enlightenment experience and more focused on how we treat ourselves, one another and the planet in our daily lives of love and work.
She designed and facilitated two web courses with Integral philosopher Ken Wilber and facilitated the Integral Enneagram web course, Compassionate Presence, with Helen Palmer and The Narrative Enneagram.
She co-designed the The Foundations of the Enneagram: The Centers Approach, which is both a deep and practical way of developing emotional and social intelligence.
She integrates the Enneagram, three-centered contemplative practice, Integral Theory, Thomas Hubl’s Conscious Healing along with somatic experiencing in her work. She was recently honored for using the theological objectives at Xavier University towards distinguished contribution to society.
