Converting Vice to Virtue with the Help of the Ennegram – on demand

In this second part of Cranaleith’s Enneagram series, learn spiritual practices to move you beyond the “stuck place” that keeps you from living fully.
According to the legendary Enneagram teacher Helen Palmer, all of us have a connection to a vital “life force” that can carry us through difficulty. Yet this life force becomes constricted as we develop defense mechanisms to protect us from the hard edges of life.
In this series, the wisdom of the Enneagram will help us to discover the “vices,” or driving emotions, that constrict the life force in each of the nine types. Through attention to the spiritual struggle and opportunities of each of the nine types, we will learn how to work with these constrictions. This is largely a matter of cooperation with grace. The Spirit safely and lovingly invites us into more receptive ways of being characterized by “virtues.”
A solid, introductory level understanding of the Enneagram and its nine types is a prerequisite for this program. Those who attended Cranaleith’s The Enneagram: A Tool for Spiritual Growth during Fall 2022 or viewed the on-demand videos from it will meet this requirement.
