t the end of September, 250 participants from more than 20 countries gathered in Oberlethe near Bremen. All brought with them relevant experience with the Enneagram and had intensively studied the life and work of a total of 54 personalities from literature, art, music, spirituality, politics and science.

During the 5 days of the seminar everyone was able to deal intensively with questions such as
What does transformation mean?
Can we find out which Enneatyp those historic personalities belonged to by studying their biographies?
What character traits marked those personalities? Which of those traits could they make their own in their lives and which could they overcome?
Can we sharpen our understanding of the subtypes through the exploration of the life and work of those personalities and what do we learn about ourselves from this?
When it comes to the theatre work: What enrichment do we personally experience through the embodiment of the Enneagram?

hese and even more
questions ran like a red thread through the 5-day seminar, which was a premiere in its conception and implementation. Thanks to technical possibilities, Claudio Naranjo conducted the symposium from Barcelona via live video conference, as health problems made travelling impossible for him. His contributions and analyses to the topics of the seminar were brilliant and brought precision as much as depth to the speakers presenting the biographies. We thus witnessed very special and unusual Enneagram panels.

So, is self-realization an end in itself, a task of each individual in his life context? It became particularly clear that there are many different starting points for transformation: Illuminating and "aha" moments, shaking events, initiations, through-the-pain-into-the-light experiences, enlightening moments…

The underlaying theme for the theatre work of the symposium was Dante's phases of development from personal hell and purgatory into his own heaven, which is an analogy from his "divine comedy", that can be psychologically interpreted and applied to personal development. Continuing with that line of thinking it was obvious to then crown the symposium with a grand theatre performance that included more than 250 actors letting the historical personalities go through hell, purgatory and heaven and thereby encounter their own abysses and heights.

„I realized that self-realization is not what I thought it was and that I don't have to be perfect in order to experience it. Diving into the life stories of all these personalities demystified my idea of Self-realization as a permanent state and a complete transformation of the "I". It was amazing to slip into the skin of the three different subtypes of my Enneatyp and experience them from within and in action. I had never seen the differences so clearly before"“.         Maria, teacher

hat this one of a kind of a symposium could happen in the wonderful way it did was only thanks to the tiredness work of many helpers, translators, theatre directors, and all the participants who studied the biographies beforehand. Thank you once again for your dedicated work, with special thanks to Betina Waissman, Juan Carlos Corezza and Claudio Naranjo! We are looking forward to Claudio's book project on the symposium and hope to be able to provide you some impressions from the video material soon.
