Spiritual Paths throughout time have developed different ways of addressing and handling the human instinctual drives of survival, sexuality, group affiliation.  Most Paths involve some “rules” or “experiments” in relation to money, diet, sexuality, lifestyle, fraternization, and service.
Various psychological schools posit different views on the relationship between human awareness, social standards, and instinctual drives.
For many human beings, their ENTIRE LIVES are largely about avoiding the domination of instinctual energies.
Manipulators of all kinds prey on humans who are in such a place.
What is a human being to do???
Personally, I am attracted to approaches that encourage and guide us to safely encounter, accept, own, forgive, and utilize the energy of … and transform our relationship with instinctual energies such that they ground and anchor our spirituality and humanity!
In short, it is time to “honor the belly”, and integrate its functioning with the mind and heart, ultimately demonstrating a seamless synthesis of human self-expression.
Join Dr. David in this powerful conversation with Katherine, as they explore the use of the Enneagram for just this purpose.
As in Part One of his interview with Katherine, Dr. David volunteers himself as a “guinea pig”, to bring the Teaching to Life!
Enjoy! (and make sure you listen to Episode 10 first)
