The Enneagram types divide symmetrically into a number of triads which reveal similarities about the types in them.
One of these is the Dominant Affect Groups, first named and developed by Don Riso and called the Harmony Triads by David Daniels.
The Dominant Affect triad shows us one of the ways, as a result of our type, that we initially reacted to the loss of direct contact with the Divine. Within each triad, each type lives out a specific flavor of how we manage that loss and, in so doing, resist reality, losing presence.
We must continually practice to undo these underlying orientations to reality in order to be in more direct contact with the Divine. As we do, we not only feel more present, but also in more real contact with others.
We will explore not only the theory, but how we can practice to release the grip of the Dominant Affects and become more whole.
The Law of Three teaches us how to work through the places where we get stuck in dualistic either-or thinking. Learning how to access the Third Force leads to more “Win-Win-Win” outcomes in our lives. And, yes, that makes three wins!
In this workshop, we will explore Gurdjieff’s Process Enneagram to understand how accessing Third Force enables us to jump to a higher “octave” in our work of psycho-spiritual transformation.

I’m not teaching a regular class these days, but I will be subbing for Terese Pritchett’s classes for a few weeks if you’d like to study with me. My approach is based on my training in SomaYoga and women’s yoga, and includes a lot of practice with interoception (feeling inside your body for how the movement affects you) and with mindfulness. Read more.
I teach yoga as a way of being present with your body.
