A place to explore contemporary intersections among science, art, healing, culture, and spirituality.
Tabemashou is an event series, starting this month, centered around food and cooking, and their relationship to identity, culture, and community. Tabemashou is a space to gather in fellowship and practice, community care through cooking, eating and conversing together.
Back by popular demand we are conducting a workshop in which we reflect on the Enneagram types of our parents and how they shaped us, our siblings, and our families. We will also be reflecting on the overlap between the Enneagram and Bowen’s Family System Theory.
The Science and Spirituality module will take a reasonable and rational look at how the government response to the UFO phenomenon has changed over the last 40-50 years. Using footage of U.S. presidential interest in UFO’s, this session will suggest that our attitudes towards the idea of UFOs and alien presence continues to evolve.
In this workshop we will examine how each Enneagram type approaches decision making – what’s important, what’s not, and what are the barriers to making decisions.
Drawing the TV series “Ancient Aliens” we will explore the plausibility of such a controversial idea. This session will encourage an open mind but also sharp scrutiny of evidence and ideas. Come join us for such a provocative presentation.
Back to basics. In the workshop we review the Enneagram fundamentals. This a great workshop to bring friends and family just becoming familiar with the Enneagram! The more the merrier, pros and novices alike! It is always fun and instructive to have all Enneagram types represented in the workshop.
Each of us changes over time as do our behaviors. The Enneagram captures these dynamics using the concepts of paths of integration and disintegration (lines) and overlapping behaviors of neighboring types (wings.) In this workshop we deepen our understanding of the behavioral variations of each Enneagram type using lines and wings. .
Clockwise motion around the Enneagram is very challenging for most of us. This challenge presents an opportunity for personal growth. In this session we will examine how our path of integration provides an attainable solutions to emulate behaviors that most challenge us. Also, we will explore how the see-saw motion along the paths of integration and disintegration presents opportunities for creativity unique to each Enneagram type.
