The Enneagram – A Journey of Creation

Facilitated by Leon Berg & Hugh A. Rose
Saturday, August 24, 11:00 am – 3:30 pm
Downstairs in Martha’s Hall
Priceless Pricing! (see below)

Join us and learn how the Enneagram process is a journey to the heart of creativity in all aspectws of life.

The enigmatic teacher G. I. Gurdjieff said he discovered the Enneagram in a monastery in Central Asia.  The Enneagram was the symbolic key to their teachings, which were never written down. 

We will explore how the Enneagram is constructed, and how it can be used as an insightful guide to the creative process. Together we will explore the symbol in the context of the basic creative act of cooking a meal, then explore the workings of a spiritual endeavor such as VCSL, and finally explore the process of creating oneself.  The Enneagram will deepen our understanding of the processes, reveal our strengths and weaknesses, and sensitize us to the ‘pattern of the Whole’.

 HUGH ROSE studied the Enneagram with his teacher, John G. Bennett, who, in turn, was a student of George I. Gurdjieff.  The latter is credited, among others, with discovering this ancient tool of the Masters of Wisdom of Central Asia and introducing it to the West.

 LEON BERG is a founding member of the Ojai Foundation and a Senior Facilitator and Trainer in the Way of Council.  Leon first encountered the Enneagram whilst studying In Search of the Miraculous, an almost verbatim record of Gurdjieff’s talks with his students prior to the Russian Revolution.  The symbol intrigued him and he has been a student of it ever since.
