What is the difference between the Enneagram Masterclass Retreat and The Enneagram Virtual Immersion Program?

The Enneagram Masterclass is given in 2 formats, a 7 day retreat and an 18 month Virtual Immersion. The difference between the EMC Retreat and the EMC Virtual Immersion is how the material is delivered. The Retreat format allows us to come together for seven days to explore this work in a concentrated amount of time. PLEASE NOTE: These courses will only be given every 3 years.  By request, Kevin is offering one more retreat in South Wales September 27, 2014!  After that it will not be given again until 2016.  Please register for this HERE.

The EMC Virtual Immersion is done from our homes using Internet technology. The material will be spread over an 18-month period giving us more time to delve into the intricacies of the Enneagram model to experience how our personalities affect our lives. Also, the 18 months allows for a visceral exploration of each enneatype.

The Enneagram Masterclass Retreat is a 7 day, residential program that will look at:

  • The vital importance of core avoidances, drives and traps
  • The dynamics of blends and lines of movement – how they present, what they can reveal, and how to work with them
  • The ‘friction’ binds and the ‘impossible’ binds of fixation
  • The deep influence of Self-Preservation, Social and Sexual instinctual drives
  • The points’ specific communication styles and what they reveal
  • The limitations of the model and when to let go of it
  • The intensity and support of a weeklong person-to-person retreat

The 18 Month Enneagram Virtual Immersion Program takes the teachings of the Enneagram Masterclass Retreat and spreads the work out over an 18-month period AND includes these additional features:

  • The opportunity to study and interact with Kevin Billett over an 18-month period of exploring, becoming aware of and freeing yourself of the traps and behaviors of our ego fixation
  • Take the teachings from The Enneagram Masterclass Retreat and become masterful at understanding the three main types: Body, Emotion, Mind, the nine points of fixation (their core drives and avoidances), the pain and suffering caused by the “impossible double binds” and the “friction binds”, the influences of the instinctual drives: Self-preservation, Social and Sexual, and the dynamics of the blends and the lines of movement
  • The opportunity to have continuous study, relieving the difficulty some have of leaving a retreat, feeling good for a while and then going back into old patterns.  It gives an opportunity to see how we show up in life as life is showing up for us… over a longer period of time so to bring heightened awareness of behaviors, patterns and unconscious choices
  •  2 live online sessions with Kevin each month.  These will combine exploration of the teaching, elicitations, review of homework and processes,  question and answer and satsang.
  • Have the company of mini support/accountability groups to share, support and encourage  each other on this journey.
  • Create an international community of fellow lovers of truth – all willing to get real with themselves and others and to commit to being an agent of change for humanity
  • Discover and experience the value of a Membership Site and Facebook Group to share, collaborate, explore and support each other through this program
  • Learn how to become masterful on understanding and applying the teachings of the Enneagram in our personal and professional lives

Why would I take both courses?

The value of experiencing this material, both on-site and virtually, allows each of us to ‘learn and live’ the teachings of the Enneagram. There is a level of understanding that comes with practicing the skills in a concentrated 7 day event, inviting us to immerse ourselves fully and to clear some fundamental blocks and self-sabotaging behaviors.

There are also huge gains made when we allow life to provide ample opportunities for us to practice the Enneagram teachings over a period of time whilst in a network of support.

The Enneagram Masterclass Retreat is an opportunity to spend 7 days, under Kevin Billett’s tutelage, whilst in the company of fellow lovers of truth. The material being taught by Kevin will be rich, deep and concentrated into a week’s program. You will have the opportunity to learn the material, do one-on-one process work with fellow delegates and become aware of and free from your ego games and strategies.  You will also have the safety and support of an ‘accountability group’ during the week, and will undergo several experiments and practices outside of normal classroom hours. It will be a full, intense, productive time!

The 18 Month Enneagram Virtual Immersion Program will delve deeper into the various aspects of the Enneagram model that this amount of time allows for.  Kevin will provide teaching and support online sessions twice a month.   You will have the safety and support of an ‘accountability group’ throughout the 18 months with which to share and do process work in support of each other’s transformation. A Membership Site will be used as a focal point from where to gather and disperse information. We will create a private Facebook Group so that our experiences can be shared and celebrated.  The intention of the  18 Month Enneagram Virtual Immersion Program is designed to teach a depth of clearing and understanding of the Enneagram model so that you will become proficient with it in your personal and professional lives. By spreading the material over an 18 month period, the skills learned will have time to be integrated into our lives more fully and naturally.

By taking both of these two courses together the delegates will have the opportunity to do both a retreat style course, thereby being in the company and energies of others, as well as be supported by the virtual immersion group over a year and a half as we live our lives.
