Enneagram of Personality: Taking Practical Steps to Personal Awakening with Indra Rinzler
The Enneagram of Personality is a powerful tool for personal and collective transformation. Each of the nine Enneagram points has a different pattern of thinking, feeling and acting that arises from its core strategy in its interaction with the world.
In this workshop we will explore how our Enneagram point affects our life and we will discover the latent programming and energetic influences that govern our individual experience. Effort put into observing, being mindful of our behavior can change our life moment by moment. We will explore the ways our personality stories are affected in relationships with partners and nuclear family and at work. Once we see these stories for what they are, they lose power, and we begin to let go of identities. Then we will look at our higher purpose–surely suffering in life is not the main objective.
This workshop is carefully designed to support a flowering within each participant, through lectures, group discussions, guided exercises, and personal practice. Participants will greatly increase their understanding of how the world works, how we come to perceive things the way we do, and how to live more joyfully right now.
Both absolute beginners and experienced attendees will create a clear path to continue their transformative work. For practitioners of vipassana, self-inquiry, non-dual philosophy, or serious spiritual inquiry within an established religious or spiritual framework, this workshop is an ideal complement.
“The Enneagram is a map that helps in understanding you. You are not the personality that you think you are. You are not the ego, the mind or the clothes you wear. You are Essence.”

Indra has been a seeker and devotee on the spiritual path for more than 45 years. He began studying astrology in the early 1970’s, first attracted to its numerical and mystical nature. He became a disciple of the preeminent Indian master, Paramahansa Yogananda, author of the spiritual classic book, Autobiography of a Yogi, and spent 20 years living in a spiritual community in California experiencing deep lessons in discipleship and Indian philosophy. In 1999 he was introduced to the Enneagram of Personality and began an in-depth study of the fascinating connection between astrology and the Enneagram. He offers Life Readings using Astrology/Enneagram and has been teaching both here in the USA and Asia.

From his lifetime of study and obvious personal experience, he was able to see deep insights into my personal patterned behaviors with the science of Vedic astrology to support the evidence of behaviors and deeply suppressed pain and passion. Being exposed to both systems gave great reasoning into the why’s of many aspects of my being, feeling like a helping hand towards the light, of otherwise potential ignorance that may have gone unnoticed for lifetimes. This has revealed to me many gems of my truth which i now have clear access to in a growing awareness of my journey towards THE truth. Indra’s gentle, loving nature and his contagious laughter made a very personal reading and look into hidden facets of this mind/body an enjoyable experience of sharing, not the isolating scary place that it can be. Thank you Indra.
The consultation with Indra was amazing! It was not only inspiring but deeply accurate in terms of hidden chapters of my own personality. His analysis is very structured. It starts with the personality type and then digging deeper and deeper into it with Vedic Astrology. To shed light into dark corners of my personality did not seem easy at first, but is a big gift at second glance. Also, he gave me ‘tools’ to open up these dark corners to sunlight. If you are ready to bring change to your life, don’t hesitate to consult him. For me it is life changing!
Indra has great communication skills, he can explain what he sees in your charts or types very clearly, and he also listens which is so important. He is very generous with his time and really gives you a comprehensive reading taking his time to ensure you understand it all. In the few weeks since I had my reading with Indra I am realizing more and more of the truth in the things he told me. He’s also just a really cool and lovely guy to hang around with for a few hours!
I feel today was a catalyst that will set off a chain of events. I went to sit by the water and reflected on what you told me. You told me exactly what I needed to hear.

The words, wisdom and knowledge that you shared with me today have
really resonated with me. It is a joyous feeling to have words for me to
understand the unvoiced stirrings within me. Thank you so very much.
So much information to process it will take a while. It all gave me lots to think, but even more to feel. I can feel I have a lot of work to do and I am really ready to do it, to feel all there is, access my full potential. Step by step. I hope I can do it I believe I can. There is lot of dark to face but even more light waiting on the other side. And thank you again. It’s been really powerful. To see all of these patterns and not get caught into the stories but trying to see what’s underneath and get to the core it’s not an easy task, and you facilitate that beautifully for me, because you didn’t only tell me things and had me listen and “believe”, but you made me SEE and say most of things myself. And that’s totally different than just listening to another story 😉 So thanks, you do what you do great, emphatically.
Looks like a Prophet and after working with him, he is one. An enlightened one. You made me look at what was really going on and gave me tools, to switch it UP.
“I enjoy the blending of information in the classes.”
“I don’t feel pressure anymore to change myself to make it better.”
“Wonderful how you bring other material in.”
“I got really a lot out of the information provided.”
“This has become the perfect time to take these classes because I have learned to observe and not leap in and have to fix something or make it better.”
“It’s been helpful to me to see how other people work.”
“I got a lot out of the process. I especially learned about myself and the process I run with others.”
“I look forward to future classes with you.”
I wanted to thank you again for the session we had. I have employed each and every suggestion you offered me that day, although I don’t think “suggestion” captures correctly what you offered me. You offered me a way out of my story which cleared the way for me to have true clarity of mind, heart, and purpose. I now feel the essence of myself without the interference of the mental chatter and illusory roadblocks I previously believed were there. To have unimpeded flow to my innermost self and all that implies. That has always been my purpose. You’re wise and timely council helped me over the threshold I didn’t know how to step through before.
