What does it mean to experience and be a catalyst for sustainable change?

During our live program, we explore and practice the revolutionary art, science and consciousness of presence as a basis for a compassion-filled, truth-based change process. You’ll gain a basic grounding in our presence-based orientation to the Enneagram and to our coaching principles and methodology. You’ll learn the 5-Step Presence-based coaching model and have an opportunity to begin practicing our competencies with your colleagues. While this retreat is open to anyone, it is also the first course in the ten-month Deep Coaching Certification training program.

Weaving Body and Spirit: The Rich Tapestry of Ancient Ritual Postures

Saturday, June 13, 2020 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Jung Haus Gallery, 59 W. Third Avenue, Columbus, Ohio

Beginning at least 36,000 years ago indigenous people around the world were creating artifacts of ritual body postures. These artworks act as visual instructions for using the body’s natural ability to expand our spiritual experience. Artist and author Belinda Gore will tell the story of meeting and becoming a colleague of Dr. Felicitas Goodman, the anthropologist who discovered the ritual uses of these artifacts, then share the simple method for using the postures. After the break, those who wish may join Belinda in experiencing a healing ritual using the Bear Spirit posture.

Workshop: Ancient Ritual Postures for Healing and Making Whole

Saturday & Sunday, August 29 – 30, 2020 9:30 am – 4:30 pm
Spring Hollow Lodge, Westerville, Ohio

The artifacts we know as Ancient Ritual Postures provide visual instructions for using the body’s natural ability to expand our spiritual experience. This intensive two-day workshop in a secluded wooded setting focuses on Postures used for healing at every level. Healing in this context means to make whole and holy, so we are learning to restore balance and harmony in body and soul. Join Belinda in creating ritual and deepening your relationship with the spirits our ancestors honored.

Object Relations and the Enneagram, Part 1

Deep Coaching Institute logo

September 17 – October 29, 2020  Fridays, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm (Eastern)
(Virtual course via phone/computer)
Approved for 10.5 ICF CCE Units.

WHY do Enneagram types patterns show up in our behavior in the typical ways they do?

One answer is grounded in Object Relations theory, focusing on the development of the personality in early childhood. The theory is based on key relationships and how those interactions structure a sense of self and our worldview. Don Riso and Russ Hudson had become students of the Diamond Approach when they developed the foundational teach-ing of Object Relations and the Enneagram. I realized the importance of Object Relations after I became a Diamond Approach student with Sandra Maitri and started looking at my own patterns. My personal work motivated me to do a deeper dive into Primary Objects and Dominant Affects and the interactive 3 x 3 matrix that forms an explanation for the Enneagram types.
