Scholar of the Enneagram of Spirituality: Two Year Intensive
ICB’s Scholar Program is a highly focused, six-part program of academic and experiential learning. Through lectures, group work, discussion sessions and practicums, students learn to apply Enneagram principles to their personal and professional relationships.
Each of the three Enneagram Centers will be studied twice during the two-year curriculum. The primary text used is Becoming Conscious: The Enneagram’s Forgotten Passageway by Joseph Howell, Ph.D. Over six intensives, Dr. Howell and ICB faculty lead participants through deep personal work within an intimate and safe learning community.
Explore the instinct’s role in finding our true selves, relieving ego’s compulsions and uncovering truth behind the motivating factors that formed our ego. Living out of instinct we can reclaim the essence that has been there all along.
Consider your true self beyond ego’s limitations. Fears are dispelled when one’s true nature of essence and ego are revealed. Divine intelligence, the seat of the Mind Center, is the soul’s mental facility which can be described as the “still, small voice.” In order to hear this voice, the mental chatter of ego’s fears, desires and delusions must be silenced.
Connect with your inherent value as children of God. When we accept that we are worthy of unconditional love, we are free to express ourselves. The Heart Center is the facet of the soul which constellates our emotions. It is where ego’s lovable or unlovable self-concepts reside.
