Rezzan Huseyin

In this episode, 20 years + Enneagram consultant, master teacher, coach, spiritual guide, facilitator, mentor, and generous soul Leslie Hershberger shares how she came to her distinct teaching around the 3 Centers. Leslie is a Social Seven, by the way!

  • How Leslie developed her Centers Approach [1.38] 
  • An important distinction about 'Feelings' in her approach [3.25] 
  • Importance of three Center presence in a personal and spiritual transformation path [9.12]
  • How Leslie's personal practices have evolved ("In the beginning,  it was like I have to be like Ken Wilber") [13.42]
  • A reassuringly real-life example [16.40]


References:
The original teaching on Buried Functions:

  • Types 4,5 & 9 bury Doing 
  • Types 3, 7 & 8 bury Feeling
  • Types 1, 2 & 6 bury Perceiving 

Leslie's teaching:

  • Heart types (2,3 & 4) bury Feeling (lead with Doing, supported by Perceiving)
  • Head types (5,6 & 7) bury Doing (lead with Perceiving supported by Feeling)
  • Body types (8,9&1) bury Perceiving (lead with Feeling, supported by Doing)

Her definitions:

  • Feeling - felt sense, sensations
  • Doing - action that is emotion/sentiment fueled, constructed, fabricated (Heart types); action taking (Head types)
  • Perceiving - thinking
