Workshop presented at the IEA Global Conference 2021
Enneagram and Somatic movement is an integrated approach to learning and transformative experience. The original Enneagram teaching pointed out that the ego-type is rooted in our anatomy. The field of somatic concern the human ability to experience the body from within and becoming aware of ourselves. The main principle is that body, emotion and thought are an inseparable continuum, thus the mind is expressed through the body and the body through the mind.
Through specifics somatic practices of embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological and developmental principles we may observe and transform our mental, emotional and instinctual patterns. We may nail down the process of perception by which information are filtered, distorted, generalised, interpreted and acted upon. We discover how before being ordered into words, thoughts and emotions are often felt as pictures and movements. Movement is not just a form of expression, it is also as another sense to perceive the self and the environment. It can also be a pathway to facilitate changes in the relationship between body and mind. Movement patterning influences how we process information, express ourselves and function. Integrated ways of moving, feeling and thinking support the manifestation of higher level of consciousness.
The workshop will be offered on Saturday, July 17, 2021, 8:30am-10:00am EST – 14:30-16:00 Italian time
