Expanding our Foundations: Awakening and Revitalizing the Belly and the Heart
The teaching of the three Centers – Belly, Heart, and Head – are foundational to the Enneagram, both from the Gurdjieff tradition as well as in Oscar Ichazo and Claudio Naranjo’s teachings. To refresh our alignment with the Centers, we have invited two internationally known speakers to bring new practices and insights to this teaching. Be sure to add this optional all day workshop to your registration. These fresh new approaches will set the spirit of learning for the entire conference.
Deepening the Wisdom of the Belly with Philip Shepherd
Philip Shepherd is recognized as an international authority on embodiment. He is the creator of The Embodied Present Process (TEPP), a unique method for moving into wholeness that heals the frantic, restless pace of the intelligence in the head by uniting it with the deep, present and calm intelligence of the body. Philip’s work is based on the vision articulated in his celebrated book, New Self, New World: Recovering our Senses in the Twenty-first Century and his newest book, Radical Wholeness, to be released in fall 2017.
Philip’s personal path has been shaped by his adventures as a teenager, cycling alone through Europe, the Middle East, India and Japan; his deep commitment to and studies of bodywork; his experiences as an actor, playing lead roles on stages in London, New York, Chicago and Toronto; and by the burning desire for freedom that has illuminated his entire life.
Where the Enneagram, Emotional Freedom and HeartMath Science Meet: Empowering Our Authentic Selves with Sheva Carr
Sheva Carr is the founding Executive Director of HeartAmbassadors and The Fyera Foundation, as well as the Co-Vice President of Pathways To Peace, a United Nations Peace Messenger Organization, and heads their delegation to the UN. She speaks to people all over the world on how to access heart intelligence and on how to receive the benefits of the heart’s impact on consciousness, health, performance, creativity and social change. Sheva teaches an online course on the Enneagram and its intersection with HeartMath and Heart Science, and incorporates the Enneagram in her ongoing Heart Ambassadors Program.

Here’s some additional information about the workshop (*Not the Talks!):What to prepare (For the workshop - not for the talks!)
Some of the exercises require that you know a short text by heart. Rest assured, this is not something you will ever be asked to perform – it’s just needed for some of the exercises. You can use one you are familiar with, or find a new one. It can be anything at all – a nursery rhyme, a song lyric, a Shakespearean monologue, the national anthem, a poem, anything. It really doesn't matter, although it does help if it’s something you enjoy. It can get pretty tedious saying, “Row, row, row your boat” over and over. Just saying... Whatever you choose to memorize, it should be at least 45 seconds long, though any length in excess of that is fine. Having it WELL memorized is important.
What to bring (For the workshop - not for the talks!)
Apart from lunch and maybe a snack and a water bottle, you might wish to bring something to lie on for exercises (a yoga mat or even just a towel) and clothes that are comfortable to move in.
Lunch (For the workshop - not for the talks!)
There will be a one-hour lunch break.
