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.
Free for members, students, and first-time guests. No advance registration is required.
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.

You give, you work, you sacrifice. But are you brave enough to put yourself at the top of your priority list?
Calling all women who do too much! Self-care isn’t selfish. It’s a revolutionary act. A feminine road back to yourself. And it changes everything.
You already know this is true. But sometimes, we need a reminder. A skilled guide back to our own inner wisdom. A sacred pause from life’s endless To Do’s … so we can return to our deepest, truest vitality.
This self-care mini-retreat is lovingly designed to help busy women harness the healing power of ancient feminine wisdom within their modern lives … so you can reclaim the lasting harmony and happiness that is your birthright. We will engage with the contemplative energies of Autumn together: turning within, harvesting everything you’ve created, releasing what no longer serves you.
Whether you are running your own business or raising a family (or both), you’ll discover how to live a meaningful, authentic life, the feminine way: guided from within.
The Autumn Mini-Retreat will support you in aligning with the seasonal energies of contemplation, feasting, and letting go, through women’s practices, women’s yoga, insight meditation, intuitive journalling, contemplative solitude, sacred ritual, and creative group practices.
Registration is full! Contact Katy to get on the waiting list.
