“9 Paths” Enneagram, Personality Mapping.
Mental illness carries such a stigma that people need to see themselves outside of their illness. Enneagram, a Personality Mapping System gives a view that helps understand the complexities of the human mind, body and heart. Who are you really? What does your best self look like? Why do you think the way you do? Why do you act the way you do? Why do you feel the way you do? In this session gain an understanding of the 9 Styles/Paths of personality for an increased awareness of self and insight into relationships with others.

“Switching From Automatic Pilot to Thoughtful Responses”
During this session, Observing our Minds, we will discuss the concept of Defusion. Defusion is the ability to step back and observe/watch our thinking instead of getting wrapped up in it. We learn to hold our thoughts lightly rather than having a tight grip on them. By defusing from our thoughts, we create a new relationship to them so that they have less of an impact over us. In learning to observe all the many messages our minds give us, we gain a greater sense of control over our thoughts and actions. This helps us move from automatic pilot to more thoughtful and intentional actions that are in line with what is most important to us. We will learn how to establish and connect with our values so we always have an anchor to ensure we are acting in a way that works for us, rather than blindly following our mind.

“Beat away Resentment”
Regrets and resentments, we all have them. The battle is releasing and letting them go so that you are free to heal, be healthy and create the life you want. Daniel leads attendees in the Native American tradition of drumming to release emotions that do not serve us. No previous drumming experience needed to participate. Drum away your resentments.
