Sat, Mar 14 - Sat, Mar 14Embracing the Shadow Self: The Enneagram and Transformation, 303-443-9055
The Enneagram is a powerful tool that helps us become aware of the ways in which we navigate the world through the protective mechanisms of our type structure and not with our full selves. It also provides a map to return to who we more essentially. This journey of returning requires recognizing and embracing our shadow selves - work that is both necessary and challenging. In this 4-hour workshop, we will explore the shadows of each of the nine types - the parts of us that our types work so hard to keep hidden. These aspects of our character structure are the scaffolding that supports our sense of identity. Who do you believe you have to be to be okay? What do you feel you need to avoid? What do you experience when you try to change? As we loosen the type structure through three centered awareness (head, heart and body), we develop the capacity to live more fully in our essential self AND the realities of our type. We are invited to live more authentically. Renée Rosario, MA, LPC & Chichi Agorom, MA will facilitate this workshop. Renée is a Core Faculty member of The Narrative Enneagram bringing with her two decades of experience as an Enneagram teacher and a body-centered psychotherapist in Boulder. Chichi studied under Renée and the other core faculty members at The Narrative Enneagram and teaches the Enneagram in Denver. She also works as a psychotherapist in Denver. *This is not an introductory Enneagram workshop and familiarity with your type is needed. Learn More...

Level I & II training Dates Below Saturday: 9:00 am -5 pm & Sunday: 9:00 am - 1 pm with Melissa Walker, MA, LPC, R-DMT with Anna Mayer, MA, R-DMT 9 DORA CE Compliant Credits Available Our clients step into our offices clogged with years of negative messages about their sexuality. These negative messages write themselves directly onto the autonomic and somatic nervous system of the body and impact the way we inhabit ourselves and the relational space. When clients access the language of the body they learn to trust themselves and navigate the tangle obstructing their eroticism with pleasure and responsibility in real-time. Concentric Sex Therapy is a confluence of sexology, somatic psychotherapy, and Dance Movement Therapy. This model activates the innate tendency towards growth and complexity supporting an embodied experience and expression of the sexual self. During this training you will learn the practice of Erotic Bodyfulness, full-body arousal anatomy with a somatic approach to the human sexual response cycle, and embodied expression toward one's personal erotic potential and healthy relational sexuality.
