Notes from show:
George Gurdjieff – Eastern Orthodox then turned away. Meet Mystical Islam and other religions. He Taught the Enneagon. ( No points but the universe could be seen and describe all of reality in this)
PD Ouspenskii was a pupil of George – Added the idea of three areas of man heart mind instinct
Oscar Ichazo – school in Chile called Arica. He was an occult teacher.
Claudio Naranjo – Learned about the Enneagon from Ichazo. He said on video they use to say it was an ancient source but now they admit it came from a “higher source”. He said he came up with the 9 character source from observation but mostly from “automatic writing”.
Automatic Writing – a claimed psychic ability allowing a person to produce written words without consciously writing. The words purportedly arise from a subconscious, spiritual or supernatural source.
Esalen Institute – Claudio went there, a think tank for new age and psychological therapy experiments.
Bob Ox – Came to Esalan Jesuit and brought these teachings into the Catholic church
Richard Rohr – learned of it who is a Christian Mysticism and Perennial teacher.
Mysticism is not the Holy Spirit interactions it’s a method of thought you learn to tap into the spiritual world
“The Enneagram Institute®, created in 1997 by the late Don Richard Riso and by Russ Hudson, was formed to further research and development of the Enneagram, one of the most powerful and insightful tools for understanding ourselves and others. At its core, the Enneagram helps us to see ourselves at a deeper, more objective level and can be of invaluable assistance on our path to self-knowledge.”
Gnosticism Relating to Knowledge especially esoteric mystical knowledge.
