Tools

Enneagram – a comprehensive system of sacred psychology that uses an awareness of personality types or structures to help us become conscious of our automatic motivations, behavior, and reactivity to aid in relaxing these repetitive patterns and allow for conscious choice, and realization of essence and wholeness.

 

MBSR and other mindfulness meditation techniques

 

Wheel of Life – Inventory the time, attention, and energy that you devote to each part of your life.  Are you living in accord with your core values?

 

Existential Inquiry - Who are you? Why are you here? For what purpose were you created? What have you done with your life and what remains undone? Whom do you love? How do you love?  Where did you come from?   Where are you going?  Are you alone in the universe or is there a higher power?  How do you know what is true?

 

Spirituality – Web of Life - Relatedness inventory: What is your relationship to: eternity, totality, the infinite? What is your relationship to nature? Your consciousness, and how you entered into the DNA body that you occupy in this life?

Your personal story?  Your body?  Your emotions? Your loved ones?  Your neighbor?  Your community?  The earth?  The stranger or foreigner?

 

Appreciative Inquiry - I ask questions about a time when you felt most joy, competence, sense of self-efficacy, hope, positive energy, and accomplishment.  I invite you to remember the details of that experience, to enter in, and relive the feelings, thoughts, and actions of that event.

This creates highly beneficial neuroendocrine responses and sense of reward within your brain and body that is an excellent means of shifting mindset and motivating change.

Vidui - Write a personal reflection addressed to your family and loved ones after your death. Share with your children, spouse, and close friends how you lived and why you made the decisions that you did. What were your values, what did you care most about?  What were your struggles and your blessings?  What do you want them to know and remember about you?  What do you want to pass on to your descendants?

 

Story catching - What is your narrative, your story? Do you have a personal myth?  Does it need revision?  Where are you on your hero's journey as Joseph Campbell described?
