The Practical Enneagram
Circling the Centers, with Cicci Lyckow Bäckman
Show Notes

Author of the wildly helpful Enneagram book, Aspects of You - an exploration of the centres of intelligence and our instinctual drives, Cicci Lyckow Bäckman (sx8) answers loads of my questions about the Centers of Intelligence.  "Her Enneagram schooling is combined with some personal ideas" - and they are pretty great.

  • How Cicci came to teach experiential inner growth courses and early encounters with the Enneagram [2.00]
  • Why do we want to balance the centers? [6.55]
  • What are the qualities of those with home bases in the Gut, Heart and Head Centers [8.45]
  • How does (1) presence and (2) asleepness look, in the Gut, Heart and Head? [11.30]
  • Is there implicit teaching in the sequencing of the way the Centers are taught? [18.50]
  • What's the difference between the Heart Center and the Social (adaptation) instinct [21.50]
  • What's the difference between a Center being out of balance and under-developed? [24.25]
  • What's the unique work that the 9,3 and 6 ('the primary types') needs to do in terms of balancing their Centers? [28.05]
  • Awareness exercise for these complicated primary types [32.50]
  • That thing about the 'blind' center being the gift center - how does that look practically? [36.30]
  • What Cicci is up to at the moment [40.55]
