The Inner Work Retreat on The Higher Mind is a part of Asia Enneagram’s 2020 program with Russ Hudson. As in the May 2019 The Heart Retreat in Taiwan, the Gurdjieff Movements taught by Gurdjieff teachers in the 4th Way tradition will be an integral part of The Higher Mind retreat in May 2020.
This retreat will focus on the exploration of the mind’s real intelligence. We don’t need to be Types Five, Six or Seven to struggle with insecurities, fears and inner chatter that disconnect us from our inner guidance. We all benefit from understanding and connecting with the non-dual nature of the Higher Mind. Come and experience Presence in the head center through in-depth and embodied exploration of points Five, Six and Seven.
This work includes personal, embodied experience through which we will deepen our connection with the real intelligence and capacities of our Higher Mind. This will facilitate work on areas such as self-image, narcissism, defense mechanisms and how the fixated views of our personal history impact our present. Also featured are small group exercises, physical movement in the form of the Gurdjieff Movements, meditations and music.
Three master teachers lead us on the journey to the Higher Mind through grounding in the body. Russ Hudson will draw from the depth teachings of the original Enneagram. Deborah Rose Longo will lead us through the sacred geometry of the Enneagram through the Gurdjieff Movements. Melanie Monsour will accompany us on Piano with the sacred music of Gurdjieff and de Hartmann.
