  1. Didn't the CIA use their techniques to create ACIM (A course in miracles)?
  2. It is also always good to know a teachers Enneatype and Subtype. For Trungpa Rinpoche it's the sexual 8, so his unconscious patterns are quite different than from e.g. Eckhart Tolle (selfpreservation 5).
  3. Of course. It's a spiritual classic.
  4. I was once watching singer Anthony Kiedis talk about his heroin addiction. A key phrase he used was he thought "they just don't understand". What's really the difference to the psychedelics or going to satsangs (which is more my thing) then if "they just don't understand"? Isn't this the same pattern but a different substance?
  5. Sandra Maitri was also part of that first group.
  6. @seriousman24 "Dr" Berg is no medical doctor and he is also a scientologist and donated at least 500k to scientology.
  7. #1 mistake is to look for how a therapist is or should be. The main thing is the therapeutic relationship. All else is secondary even though it is helpful to look for approaches you also resonate with.
  8. If your money / insurance allows go to a trauma therapist because you describe classic trauma symptoms: For reading I would recommend Peter Levine in an unspoken voice, Laurence heller healing developmental trauma and bessel van der kolk the body keeps the score.
  9. Mathematicans know that it is not true but only based on assumptions and definitions. That is the first thing you learn.
  10. Eckhart Tolle is a classic type 5. Ramana could have also been a 5 although I can see why he could be typed a 9. But for Eckhart there is really no argument imo.
  11. Claudio Naranjo - Ennea-type Structures Eli Jaxon-Bear - Fixation to Freedom: The Enneagram of Liberation Sandra Maitri - The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram: Nine Faces of the Soul Advanced: Sandra Maitri - The Enneagram of Passions and Virtues: Finding the Way Home A.H. Almaas - Facets of Unity: The Enneagram of Holy Ideas The Beatrice Chestnut book is ok but I'd rather get DVDs or MP3s of Naranjo (on which the book is based on), if possible.
  12. That is not true. It depends what dichotomy and subtype a type has. A social (dichotomy) sx/soc (subtype "stacking") 5 could easily be mistaken for a 7. This is more a sexual subtype thing than 7 imo. Sexual subtypes of any type could display this behaviour.
  13. That's all you ever have to know about "alpha".
