Human evolution has required three basic instincts for survival. These survival instincts or instinctual energies are referred to in the Enneagram as Self-preservation, One-to-One, and Social. These evolutionary forces are deeply imbedded in humans and challenge our desire to make changes. In the workshop we will learn about each instinct, begin to identify our subtype, and hear from others about how they experience instincts and subtypes in their lives.
