Rosalyn Rourke, MSW, learned the Enneagram in 1995. She studied with some of the finest Enneagram teachers, including Russ Hudson and Don Riso, Tom Condon and Helen Palmer. As a psychotherapist for over 30 years, the Enneagram was Rosalyn’s most powerful tool for change in herself and with her clients. In gratitude to the Enneagram, A Course in Miracles and Non-Duality, life is a much lighter and sweeter experience for Rosalyn.
Rev. Jennifer Hadley has been leading retreats, professional spiritual counseling training, classes and workshops since 1997. Her A Course in Miracles radio show has been a #1 radio show on the Unity Church network since 2011. Her daily blog has more than 5,000 subscribers. Jennifer shares how to get out of your head and into your loving heart so in order to be truly helpful by walking the talk and living the love. Jennifer offers programs for people who are ready to move beyond merely studying ACIM to deeply living it.
Learn why the Instincts Stack matters:
We can communicate our preferences more easily.
Other people's preferences become more understandable.
Fighting within couples and families can cease, when it is understood that the Instinct, not the person was chosen.
When resistance to the least favored Instinct is uncovered, new choices in life become available for us.
Collaborations are easier when we know that underneath our words in a conversation, our Instincts are communicating with the other persons’ Instincts.
Longstanding judgments may disappear when we discover the root of the disagreement is a difference in Instinct preference.
Areas of self care or group participation may open-up when we understand the source of our discomfort.
People can open to connection with another, when their reluctance is understood in the context of an Instinct Stack.
What you'll learn about others:
Learn to recognize the other’s preferred instinct from their reactions
Learn to recognize the other’s likely family of origin style
Learn to recognize the other’s wound and the best communication approach to them
Learn their preferred instinct is a preferable love language device
There will be a digital (PDF) Handout with Visualsto better understand and stack your Instincts.
Instinctual Variant Test: If you know your Enneagram TypeRosalyn recommends taking this validated test before class. It costs $12 Instinctual Variant Questionnaire (IVQ v2.0).Click here to take this test now!
This is called: “The Instinctual Variant Questionnaire (IVQ v2.0).”
This is a different test from your Enneagram Type test. The Instinct test requires you to know your Home Enneagram, before taking the Instinctual Variant Test.
The test takes about 45 minutes. It is most important that you answer the questions from the place you were when you were about age 25, not how you have recently evolved. If you do not yet know your Home Enneagram, please contact Rosalyn at [email protected]
Optional Book Purchase:
People often ask for book recommendations. Books are not required, I recommend a reference that you will not outgrow: The Wisdom of the Enneagram by Don Riso & Russ Hudson. Click here to purchase.
Benefits for Counselors, Therapists, Ministers and Coaches
Knowing the other’s type and Instinctual Stack will provide you with specific guidance for communication and transformation strategies. A highlight of the Enneagram system is that there are no good ones or bad ones, or good or bad Instinctual stacks. We can be healthy or unhealthy in our type, and we can be healthy or unhealthy in how we live out our stacks.
