Enneagram: A Piece of Wisdom to Guide You

 

The Enneagram of Personality Types is a modern synthesis of a number of ancient traditions. Óscar Ichazo, founder of the Arica School of Knowledge, named the graphic the Enneagon. Much of his knowledge came from the Sufi schools and the Fourth Way, an esoteric teaching of which Gurdjieff was a precursor, followed by Ouspensky, and Maurice Nicoll. He called his teachings Protoanalysis and their purpose is enlightenment and Unity with the Divine.

He identified nine ways in which the personal ego is fixed in the psyche during childhood. For each person these ego fixations become the core of a self-image around which the corresponding psychic personality develops. On an emotional level, each fixation is in turn reinforced by a specific passion or vice.

In 1970, he organized a 10 months retreat in Arica desert (Chile) for 50 people, amongst which was Claudio Naranjo. After this retreat, Ichazo created the Arica Institute in USA and Claudio Naranjo followed his own path, building a bridge between the “Fourth Way” optics and Western Academic Psychology.

The Arica school is a vast, interwoven, and sometimes complex body of teachings on psychology, cosmology, metaphysics, spirituality, and so forth, combined with various practices to bring about transformations of human consciousness.
