The depth of disregard for women has been recently illuminated in even the most liberal minded corners of our culture. What is this split in consciousness from the feminine and why must we mend it? One of the ways we as children are taught to deal with the instinctual mind is through the fairytale story. By observing these characters, we learn to model our own life skills and build our personality traits. Using Cinderella, Susie engages the audience to learn how your story is your power. How Cinderella's personality traits and her stepfamily's exhibit the facets of Enneagram fixations and passions in order to keep at bay the characters' authentic reactions to their current predicaments as women, and how our types may encourage us to deny our expression of the feminine, offering specific ways to bring forth the feminine voice using the passion to virtue bridge in the Enneagram. Drawing upon her new book with Elle Luna, Your Story Is Your Power, Susie will use interactive exercises so participants can experience the damaging affects of bypassing the feminine in the human psyche and how to use the Enneagram to begin to cohere and heal this separated aspect of our minds.
