WINGS, LINES & INTEGRATION
The Dynamic Enneagram
The Enneagram is much more than nine points on an intersection of a triangle and a hexagon or a set of categories or types to be ‘sorted into’. It is a psycho-dynamic framework that provides a powerful model for understanding how development and integration operate.
The Enneagram does not provide a ‘quick fix’ with a limited lifespan once insight has been reached. It enables people to develop themselves over time as the Enneagram continues to speak to us as we and our circumstances change.
Within the framework, the wings, instincts, levels of integration and lines represent the movement and journey we are on in life. The gift of the Enneagram is the richness of potential and movement it offers, flexing between core type, wings and line of release and connection, and levels of integration, to more fully exploring one’s being.
There are three fundamental ways of looking at movement within the Enneagram:

Movement to connected points across the circle, your points of ‘stretch and release’.Read More
LEVELS OF INTEGRATION
Movement from a ‘trapped’ relationship to our core type to letting go of core fears and transcending the limitations of type.Read More
