Projection is when we imagine and believe that what is actually true about us lives in someone else.
Our shadow is all the thoughts, feelings, hopes, fears, motivations and behaviors that we can’t see in ourselves, but can see in others.
The Enneagram offers a map of your most common projections.
Projection shapes our reality. In the normal course of growing up, we fashion a self-image of who we are or who we think we should be based on what was permitted in our family and culture (I AM). Any attributes that don’t fit our self-image get split off into the realm of I AM NOT.
We often repress about these I AM NOT characteristics. However, we can also throw them farther away from ourselves by projecting them outward onto other people.
Threes see themselves as part of the world of winners with competitions to be won and push the insecure and unsure part of themselves to shadow.
Ones see a world of judgments and corrections to be made and push the playful, misbehaving part of themselves to shadow.
Nines see show offs trying to take up the attention who ignore and dismiss them and push the part of themselves that wants to shine and be seen to shadow.
When emotions run high, our conditioned focus of attention on the inside shapes what we see on the outside.
Then we are caught in an illusory story where YOU are the source of my well-being or YOU are causing my distress.
We make assumptions in personal relationships and project the denied parts of ourselves onto others in the culture.
IN THIS WORKSHOP YOU WILL:
- LISTEN TO PANELS OF THE ENNEAGRAM TYPES SHARE THEIR VIEW OF THE WORLD. You’ll be able to understand people in your lives with deeper clarity.
- LEARN HOW TO NOTICE YOUR TYPE RELATED PROJECTIONS AND ALSO SEE THE SHADOW IN OUR CULTURE (The world is divided because of projection)
- PRACTICE MEDITATIONS FOR LEARNING TO LET GO AND RELAX YOUR THOUGHTS, EMOTIONS AND YOUR BODY’S REACTIONS WHEN YOU’RE CAUGHT IN A PROJECTION.
Saturday, April 8, 2017, 9-5 PM
