Spiritual Initiation and the Enneagram Carl Marsak

The subject of this workshop is the integration of Enneagram theory with the Western Occult or Mystery Tradition. Using information and wisdom gleaned from various sources, including Theosophical writings, the Alice A. Bailey corpus, the Egyptian or Hermetic tradition, and Jungian materials, Carl will talk about both the nature of the soul and its relationship to the lower threefold personality and the deeper meaning and purpose of spiritual initiation. Together we will explore the possibility that the Enneagram was originally designed and given to humanity as a map and guide for permanently attaining expanded states of consciousness. The approach will be didactic and experiential. Carl Marsak has M.A. degrees in Religious Studies and Social and Cultural Anthropology. He is certified by Palmer and Daniels as an Enneagram teacher in the Narrative Tradition. He has taught courses in religious studies, meditation, the Tarot, and ESL, and is currently teaching the Enneagram in Europe and America.
