Dante, Florence, and the Enneagram 18-21 May, 2017 - Posted: October 18, 2016

Discovering the Enneagram in Dante’s “Divine Comedy” - the Path from Fixation to Freedom in Florence, Italy



Come and join us as we explore the spiritual journey as illustrated through the Enneagram and Dante’s timeless literary masterpiece, “The Divine Comedy” in Florence, Italy, Dante’s birthplace, the city that gave birth to the Renaissance, sometimes referred to as “the Athens of the Middle Ages”.

Due to the success of the visit to Florence in May 2015 we're repeating the experience again and will develop the project further.

"“What a terrific few days in Florence – thank you so much for organising this. It was a real joy for me from start to finish. I was amazed at the depth and understanding of everyone in this insightful group of people. Always a pleasure to meet up with people who want nothing more than to develop in body, mind and spirit.”

Over four days in the centre of historic Florence we’ll journey through the nine circles of the Inferno, the seven terraces of Purgatory, and the nine spheres of Paradise focusing on what they can teach us about the path from unconscious sleep to awakening, from being trapped in “slavery” to our own egos to psychological and spiritual liberation.

This in-depth exploration of the Enneagram through the work of Dante and his remarkable poem will take the form of lectures, group discussion and experiential work. There will also be a guided tour of Florence, the city at the centre of Dante’s life and the action of the Comedy and we will visit Casa di Dante - Dante’s house in Florence.

Knowledge of the Enneagram and your own type is a requirement.
