Yomi came to New Life as a volunteer for a couple of months as part of year-long adventure of discovery and travel. Yomi chats to us about what he took away with him from New Life, and explains how working with the Enneagram helped him towards greater self-understanding and personal growth.
Pippa’s testimonial: “I learned so much from my time at New Life but the awakening I received from studying the Enneagram surpassed all else. I am so grateful for this new understanding in my personal development, my journey and my healing. (…)”
Nell, 23, from Toronto has been at New Life for over 2 months. She first came as a volunteer, but quickly switched to being a resident as she wanted to work on her own self development through the enneagram and workshops.
Yoga, like the enneagram is about life in general. The question is – how can we take our yoga practice outside the mat into the world? How to keep the awareness and preserve the energy in state of ( inner) conflicts?- There are may techniques and I have tried a lot of them, from psycho therapy, different yoga styles, meditation techniques, cleaning processes etc.
I came to New Life to find some direction in my life. My favorite part was learning about the enneagram and understanding my personality type better, what makes me tick and my traits. I had never heard about the enneagram before, just the Meyers Briggs system. The enneagram went into more detail about childhood behavior and gave more insight into a career path.
I came to New Life because I was tired. I had traveled 7 months nonstop, without stay in one place for a while.
My father passed away one year ago and I was running away my feelings. I didn’t want to face the truth. Also I quit my anti-depressants after I had used them for 11 years. New Life helped me a lot. I finally deal with some of my feelings about my father and I let go some of my shames.
“The Enneagram helps us understand ourselves and other people. It helps us get in touch with our thinking, feeling and reactions,” says Kruu Kade (“Teacher Kade”), the person responsible for bringing the Enneagram to New Life.
