Integral Enneagram: Brain, Behavior and Consciousness - Agustina Burgo

My primary interest in offering both my 2009 Part I and 2010 Part II presentations is to explore practical and effective methods of personal evolution through a more integral understanding of human behavior with the help of the latest discoveries on the brain and the transformational Enneagram tool. The Part I (2009) was about focusing on the meaning of the Integral Enneagram and on the Basic Brain/ Instinct Center to understand the roots of mechanical human behavior and the implication of ego fixations on the unbalanced functions of the other two Brains/Centers. In Part II we will focus on the cortex brain and its capacities (right and left hemispheres) to understand the meaningful use of Virtues and Holy Ideas as the starting point on the path of healing certain roots of the ego. The objective is to transform unconsciousness into awareness, and the sleeping human being into one who is awake. Agustina Burgo’s vocation is to improve herself and to help people improve by means of education. For her, the most important thing to learn is to know oneself in order to reach the levels of development which enable people to understand the meaning of life and to behave congruently for expanding consciousness as much as possible. Her orientation is psychospiritual growth and her inspiration comes from the Christian teachings, as well as being open to other old and new ways of thinking. Agustina’s core Enneagram teaching is based on Riso and Hudson’s Insight Approach. Her education includes Masters of Education, Universal History, and Biological Psychology Studies. She also studied with Claudio Naranjo, Richard P. Mchugh S. J., Elaine de Beauport and Aura Sofía Díaz.
