|In this session we will examine a novel model
of the structure and dynamics of Enneagram
type based on current scientific understanding
of the neurobiology of emotion. It offers fresh
and profound perspectives on the relationships
between type, the principle triads, and the
emotions of fear, anger, and sadness/distress.
The model suggests that Enneagram type is
structured around basic ways in which the
three emotions are regulated to promote adaptive and socially
functional behavior. The presenters will explore this model,
focusing on the qualities of emotional experience and expression
of each of the nine types, using didactic presentation, audience
exercises, and panel inquiry.
