Questions are central to the WAYfinding experience. Through the use of diverse resources, we release ideas and curiosities into the community so each of us can strengthen our i/Intuition or w/Wisdom or whatever-w/Word-works-for-you muscles. Then, we encourage each other to live out what we h/Hear. This is our way of being.
So, it's a little odd to be embarking on a topic for an entire round that requires so much instruction. The Enneagram to a certain extent must be taught. We're discovering, though, we can still inject the WAYfinding way. Here are two examples as to how:
The first week of group we'll discuss the below 1-minute video. At first listen, it sounds merely instructional: this is how the Enneagram can help you on your spiritual journey. However, dive a bit deeper, and you've got assumptions, ideas and belief statements ripe for questioning. We'll do just that.
Second, at WAYfinding, we believe questioning is best done in community - not only do our wonderings richen and widen, but the experiences and i/Intuitions of others serve as important "checks" on our own. So, rather than learn about the Enneagram from expert resources alone, we're going to make particular space each week for the participants whose type is "up." For your type's week, you'll answer questions prior to coming to group like "What were you often like as a child, in relation to your Enneagram type?" and "Do you drive yourself crazy on occasion? If so, how?" and "What do you find helps you to be your best s/Self? What do you need?" Through these experiences, we'll learn about types we are, types we need to integrate to be the healthiest version of ourselves, types we live with and love, etc.
If you've already signed up, I look forward to journeying the Enneagram road with you! If you haven't, I hope you'll add your voice!
