Here are a few excerpts from letters we have received regarding peoples experiences on The Enneagram Programme:
"Thank you both so much for a fantastic course! I met some friends last night and everyone said 'what is different about you - what have you done to yourself?'. It was hard to explain but I know it was because i was just me - the real me! I love you both for this - I am so happy and comfortable in my own skin"
"Just want to say a huge thank you for two utterly fabulous weekends - I learnt so much and enjoyed every single minute. I've been to a good few workshops, but they all pale in comparison. Thank you so much for working so hard on our behalf and giving us such a huge amount of knowledge. There was nothing slow or stretched out, just intense learning and all of it exciting and fascinating"
"I just wanted to thank you both for the course - so glad I didn’t have to wait any longer for the information!! I am absolutely fascinated by this and I can already feel a huge difference in myself… and how I relate to others (especially at work). Amusingly predictable No 2 behaviour to send a ‘thank you’ e-mail but I just had to let you know how important this course is to me - I’d lost hope in ever understanding humans!!"
"Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend. I didn't really know where it was all going when we arrived on Saturday morning! How clever of you to have put the course together in this way. I thought we would all magically make great strides by just knowing and understanding ourselves through the enneagram. I was so intrigued and would have loved to intellectualise on it forever (must be my 5 wing!). But I would have got even more and more tied up with my 'logical' mind and never learnt to live in essence!"
"Thank you. What you are both doing is the answer. Thank you for teaching us all"
'After the course I felt ‘clean and new’. There’s a sort of freshness about me inside. I see myself now as being ‘fine as I am’ around others - I don’t feel I have to prove myself any more. Generally I like myself more and my family says that I am calmer, happier and more tolerant now.'
'I now view others as more than just their ‘outward face to the world’ ; I am aware of the fact that just like me, they are experiencing feelings and thoughts at any given time that may be causing them underlying stress or causing negative behaviour patterns. I know I am now more considered in my vocal response to others, and I am more accepting of others and am more able to understand how to allow them their space to be who they are without needing to change them.'
'I thoroughly enjoyed the Eneagram Programme. It was a real pleasure meeting you both and working with you. It was all very well organized and I can’t think of a better venue. I thought the whole thing was brilliant; it was fascinating listening to what you both had to say. A lot of it felt like it was ‘coming home’, confirming what I think I already knew but didn’t know I knew, or at least, I hadn’t seen it clearly. And the new bits……well I want to know more!'
'I am surprised that some of my demons seem to have disappeared. My early life no longer troubles me and I have finally forgiven my brother.'
'Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for sharing this valuable information!
It was all very exciting and interesting and it has helped me so much. I used to get myself in such a panic about things; I was always making myself anxious and now it’s almost all gone. I still get stressed sometimes but it doesn’t affect me like it did and for that I’m so thankful. My everyday happiness has definitely increased.'
'It was a wonderful few days and I felt so uplifted after the course. I felt truly loved and nurtured in such beautiful surroundings and I felt the divine light was truly with us.'
'I enjoyed and appreciated the dynamic and yet sensitive way in which the information was communicated. It was both relaxed and vibrant too, beautifully subtle, and yet with clear and professional structure.'
'The course was great from start to finish. The venue couldn’t have been better and the course content was exciting and thought provoking. I thank you both for the support and care you gave me during the course. It was a pleasure to meet you; you are both truly inspirational people.'
'I began my own spiritual journey only a few years ago but feel the Enneagram Programme has given me a spring board to another level. I now have more energy and charisma and I connect with others more easily and live in the now rather than project into the future! I have reclaimed my power… and live more honestly as my true self. Also, I feel more accepting and compassionate towards others and less confused about relationships.'
'It’s hard to adequately express my gratitude to you both - without your gentle but firm guidance I may have continued to ‘get by’ and suppress these trapped negative emotions, emotions that I wasn’t even fully aware of before. The safe, healing environment you create made it possible to finally free myself. Even more, there has been an immediate positive effect on all those I come in contact with - I am a work in progress!'
'I had thought that it was unnecessary to go through all the 9 types in such detail, that maybe we could have just read about it, but I soon began to realise that how useful and important it was to go through the material this way - you understand things on the course in a way that you just couldn’t through a book.'
'I was quite overwhelmed by the emotional release and change in other people. It really touched me, and to see their happy faces afterwards was a real gift. It was most striking in my partner - a true transformation. I felt privileged to witness it.'
'Since the course I have had many moments of peacefulness. As you predicted I feel more understanding and compassionate and much more equipped to deal with my teenage daughter’s outburst. You are doing very important work with and for other people - I’m convinced that emotionally well and balanced people are happy and healthy people, and this course is just what we need in this day and age. Many thanks to you both, you’re a wonderful team.'
I have been surprised at the effect the Enneagram Programme has had on my life. I now feel much freer to express myself and to live the life I have always wanted to live. I feel empowered in a flowing, connected way with myself, the world and with others. After having retreated for several years, I am now taking action and getting out into the world again and having fun. After so long in limbo, I am really enjoying life again!
The processing we did on the course using The Soul Freedom Process has brought about enormous changes in me and my reaction to other people. Now that I have let go of those negative beliefs I am so much more compassionate towards myself, more able to accept and love myself as I am. My relationships are also changed. Because I no longer have the negative reactions that I used to, my relationships are more harmonious and flowing.
Many, many thanks for the course. It was a wonderful few days, in a beautiful setting with wonderful people. You create such a supportive and nurturing environment for such important work. Thank you!
And some more from some of our clients who wish to remain anonymous:
'How I survived the world without the Enneagram I will never know! My life is now so much richer, my relationships seem simpler and I can literally feel myself reaching out to experience the fullness of life. Its all thanks to the Enneagram Programme, and to the care and compassion of the teachers.’
'My relationship with all my family has undergone a real transformation. Things that used to make me feel angry and criticised just go past me. I just don’t have those awful reactions any more.'
'I have noticed a huge difference in my thoughts, responses and feelings. I am actually having fun, have tons of energy and can now express myself in a calm, non-reactive way. I feel humbled by the change.'
‘I have been a counsellor for 15 years and have attended various training courses throughout this time. Never before have I experienced anything like the Enneagram Programme. As well as advancing my understanding and ability to relate to my clients, I have moved forward to become a happier, more well-rounded human being.’
'Life seems so much simpler and more flowing. I am finally free from worry and anxiety and things are so much easier in my relationships.'
'The emptiness inside has gone and I feel much more positive about life.'
'Before the programme I used to feel rather like a ghost - present, but not fully connected to people or life. I always seem to miss out on the juice of life. Now my life has begun as I have never known it. Wow!'
'For the first time in my life I can see and understand my negative patterns - now with real compassion for myself - and they are just dropping away. Thank you so much!'
'Now I understand so much about myself and others in my life. What a difference it has made! I wish I’d discovered all of this years ago. Thank-you so much.'
‘I feel more at peace and so much more confident, thank you! I hadn't realised how much negative thinking I used to do!!’
‘An experience that brought about immediate changes in me, and will go on being of benefit for all the days of my life. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world’
