“Retreat A was the most profound experience I’ve had with a group, and as an individual. The work I was able to do thanks to the mastery and professionalism of Beatrice and Uranio and Team, was beyond my expectations. I truly feel I received a gift to live further. I feel that I wouldn’t trust anyone else in the world at this moment with such work.”

-Alexandra

“The barrier of a virtual retreat disappeared after just a few minutes and I could feel the energy from the group, thanks to the expertise of Bea and Uranio (and Amy, Deb, and Nancy).  I would sign up for another virtual retreat with Bea and Uranio with no hesitation.”

-Helen

“Bea and Uranio are masterful teachers and co-leaders and this Retreat surpassed any expectation I could have imagined. Their ability to deeply connect and accept each one of us, no matter where we are on our journeys, was beautiful to both experience and witness. This is where to come to experience an awakening!”

-Vicki

The Experience

This retreat offers an in-depth intensive experience of the three core instincts, the six instinctual sequences (the six possible ways in which the instincts can be “ordered”) and the twenty-seven subtype personalities. Through both group and individual work, video clips, and the latest teachings on the instincts and subtypes, we will learn about this important dimension of the Enneagram model. Within the context of a rich group setting, we will support each other in understanding the ways in which our dominant, secondary, and repressed instincts drive our behavior. We will also gain insight into how our instincts combine with our passions and our type patterns to structure our experience.

The exploration of the ways our personalities act out our instinctual biases and emotional and cognitive patterns will culminate in participants identifying specific growth challenges, working with them in-depth in real-time, and developing a plan for continuing inner work beyond the retreat.

This retreat will support and encourage you in doing powerful Enneagram-based inner work by providing the information, the experiences, the support, and the path to be able to intentionally rising above the habitual automatic reactivity of your personality.

You will learn:

  • to recognize and understand defensive behavior driven by your instincts operating through your personality (sub)type patterns
  • to see how your passion and instinctual makeup operate as a unified system
  • to gain insight into how your passion combines with your instinctual needs to shape unconscious behavior
  • much more about the ways in which the 6 instinctual sequences and the 27 subtypes manifest
  • to become more conscious of unconscious, instinct-driven behavior and how to intercept it
  • to compassionately support yourself in doing the work of seeing your animal nature and addressing and breaking free from self-limiting patterns

Wisdom tradition tells us that it is in becoming aware of our animal nature and using the capacity for conscious reflection (we as humans uniquely have) that we develop the ability to routinely impose an inner witness and observe our instinctual reactions and our passions in action. This kind of inner work gives us the power to intervene to intercept automatic behavior (stimulated by the interaction of the dominant instinct and the lower emotional center) and transcend to a higher level of consciousness.
