“Process Enneagram” Levels of Awareness Model

An Introduction to the Vertical Dimension of Type that Maps Your Individualized Growth Journey
with Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes

SATURDAY, February 20, 2021 | 10am-3pm CST on Zoom


The Enneagram is a much deeper transformational system when we consider the levels of awareness we go through as we self-develop. From the level at which personality is the most fixated to the highest-level spiritual experiences, we all go through different psycho-spiritual stations or levels as we do intentional self-development work. Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes have created a highly detailed map of these different levels of awareness based on the Enneagram itself–applying it as a map of the process of the human transformation. This model includes both what the general levels look like for all of us and the nine type-specific levels of work to be done by each type to advance up the levels.

Gurdjieff famously said that the Enneagram is a symbol of perpetual motion. This is why the “Chestnut Paes model of levels of awareness” is based on the Enneagram symbol itself. In this interpretation of the Enneagram as a “process map,” they draw on its profound meaning as a symbol of “unity in multiplicity” to describe a highly specific path of transformation for each type.

In this online workshop, we will introduce you to this map that can help you begin to see where you are on your path of self-development and how to chart your progress forward. By gaining a clearer understanding of the specific levels of awareness, based on the Enneagram symbol, you can locate the level where you are now and learn what practices and inner work you can do to advance—or accelerate—your movement toward achieving higher levels of awareness.

Bea and Uranio will explain the general nature of each level and then talk a little bit about what each of the 9 types needs to do at each of the levels to increase awareness. They will identify some of the exact psychological and spiritual “inner work” tasks to be done at each level. As a result, you will be able to not only understand your placement and what’s next for you, but also see how you can identify the best inner work activities for you to dedicate time and energy to at every level.
