Ancient and modern ways to tune into your 3 wisdom centers (head, heart, and hara or gut) to sync up and embody your ‘whole-body’ knowing.

 

The number three is sacred in almost all spiritual traditions ancient and modern, East and West. It’s also an important number in nature and our environment...

And, according to the world’s ancient traditions, it’s the number of wisdom centers we each have our Head, Heart, and Hara (or gut).

You’re most likely already attuned to one or more of these centers, even if you’re not aware of it...

Perhaps, you’re heart-strong, making life choices about relationships, work, play, and health from your heart center.

Or, you may lead with your intellect, crafting your perceptions from all angles and carefully plotting the best plan for going forward on your life’s journey.

Or, maybe you most often go with your gut, because it registers first when you’re approaching a new situation, and you’ve come to trust it.

Yet, learning how to “listen to” and integrate the wisdom of all three of your wisdom centers can greatly enrich your personal life, spiritual life, and all your relationships including your relationship with yourself.

When you tune into this powerful form of “whole-body” knowing, you allow for a greater understanding of your true needs and desires how you really want to respond in a situation, while also allowing for deeper, more compassionate insight into others’ intentions and points of view.

You stand more authentically in who you truly are, and easily bring feelings of groundedness and ease into every part of your life.

In Integrating Your Head, Heart & Hara with author Sean Esbjörn-Hargens, the founder of MetaIntegral, you’ll discover a variety of powerful ways to tune into your wisdom centers based on sacred traditions all over the world...

... practices that can open you to profound clarity, increased feelings of love, and heightened self-empowerment.

You’ll explore how your three wisdom centers combine into nine unique combinations to form all of the personality types in the Enneagram a system that can help you better navigate the relationships in your life.

You’ll discover the three cauldrons, or energy centers in your body, based on ancient Irish mystical tradition... and how they can help you access other dimensions and interact with subtle beings including nature spirits and Irish Gods and Goddesses.

You’ll learn how Daoists believe that nature, and its encompassing cosmology, is filled with the flow and exchange of energy, or Qi. ..

... and how you can work with what Daoists call the Three Gates to circulate energy throughout your body.

By experiencing practices from different traditions you can zero in on which approaches are most effective for you in accessing the wisdom from each of your centers. You’ll also discover sacred practices to incorporate into your existing daily practices... and even find a new wisdom tradition you’d like to explore further.

 
 

During this transformative 7-module journey, you’ll:

 
  • Experience and begin to listen to the unique language of all 3 of your wisdom centers

Module 1: Discovering the Sacred Architecture of Being Human: Your 3 Wisdom Centers Head, Heart, & Hara

 

The number three is a sacred number in almost all spiritual traditions ancient and modern, East and West. It’s also an important number in nature and natural systems...

In this opening class, you’ll begin your journey by exploring just how much of reality has this triadic structure. You’ll examine numerous sacred traditions that believe humans are comprised of three distinct “wisdom centers” Head, Heart, and Hara.

  • A powerful wisdom inquiry practice to give voice to each wisdom center and incorporate that wisdom into your daily decision-making process
 

Module 2: Exploring the Enneagram & George Gurdjieff’s 3 Paths of Awakening Fakir, Monk, & Yogi

 

One of the most powerful examples of systems built on the three wisdom center traditions is the Enneagram. In this session, you’ll take a deep dive into the Enneagram’s ancient roots based on this sacred triadic structure.

You’ll explore how the three centers combine into nine unique combinations to form all of the personality types in the Enneagram system.

As you’ll discover, each personality is the result of a specific combination of a primary center, a secondary center, and a tertiary center. You’ll explore how the three wisdom centers form the basis of your personality and provide you with a unique path of transformation....

Module 3: Discovering Daoism’s 3 Dantians Lower (Jing), Middle (Qi) & Upper (Shen)

 

For thousands of years, Daoists have mapped how nature and its encompassing cosmology is filled with the flow and exchange of energy, or Qi. They’ve identified three major energy centers dantians that occur in the body.

In this session, you’ll learn how the dantians can work in concert with what’s known as the Three Gates (also located in the body) to circulate energy throughout the body.

Sean will share how these three wisdom centers are a major component of YOUR subtle energetic body... and how they’re both similar to, and distinct from, the chakra system.

Module 4: Tapping Into Your 3 Neurological Brains to Improve Your Leadership Skills

Leading-edge neuroscience reveals that people actually have three distinct neurological networks or brains in your head, your heart, and your gut all of which are designed to help you be adaptive to the complex physical, social, and psychological environments you live in.

Steiner showed how healthy societies, and integrated human beings, can balance and coordinate three distinct interdependent realms... and identified four distinct senses of perception associated with each of these three centers in the human body.

Our 3 Souls
Video Teaching From Sean Esbjörn-Hargens

This video provides a general overview of the wisdom traditions that discuss how humans have not one but three souls. Sean discusses several examples of these triple soul systems where each soul has its own subtle body and can explore different spiritual realms. He also compares and contrasts these triple soul systems with triadic soul and tripartite soul approaches. Triadic soul systems are where there are three souls in a single body, whereas tripartite soul approaches are where there is one soul but it has three distinct parts. By exploring these various approaches to the human soul you will develop a better understanding and appreciation of the multidimensional nature of your own soul.

 

Cultivating Tetra Awareness Meditation
Audio Meditation With Sean Esbjörn-Hargens

This meditation introduces you to the four quadrants of Integral Theory in an experiential way. The experience quadrant is where your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations arise. The senses quadrant is where your five senses give you access to the world around you. The relational quadrant is where you connect to the intersubjective field between you and others. The systems quadrant is where experiences of time and space arise. You will be guided to connect with each of these four modes of Tetra Awareness and learn how to rest your consciousness at the intersection of all four co-arising.

 

The Power of 3 in the Enneagram
Video Teaching With Sean Esbjörn-Hargens

This video presents how the Enneagram system is based on sacred triadic architecture. Sean discusses how this triadic structure permeates many of the key features of the Enneagram. First, he will present how the foundation of the system is the three wisdom centers (3). Next, each of the nine types is the result of a unique combination of the three wisdom centers, which results in a specific path of development for each type (3 x 3 = 9). Lastly, each of the nine types has three distinct expressions (3 x 3 x 3 = 27). By understanding how the “power of three” shows up in the Enneagram system you will develop an appreciation for the mystery and magic of the number three not only in the Enneagram but in other contexts as well.

More Praise for Sean Esbjörn-Hargens...

 
“Time isn’t on our side, but... if we embrace the authors’ messages... we still have a chance...”

Integral Ecology is a forward-looking book that invites compassionate proactive activism when dealing with the messes we’ve made. Time isn’t on our side, but my optimism leads me to believe that if we embrace the authors’ messages and put them into action using humility, compassion, heart, and love, we still have a chance to pull ourselves out of the many deep holes we’re digging for ourselves, other animals, and ecosystems.
Marc Bekoff, PhD, University of Colorado, author of Animals Matter and The Emotional Lives of Animals

 
“[Integral Ecology] is the finest book on ecology bar none. Highest recommendation!”

Ken Wilber, Author of Sex, Ecology, Spirituality and The Integral Vision

 
“... a valuable roadmap for responding to contemporary problems such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and land use change.”

[Integral Ecology] offers a promising approach for making sense of the diverse perspectives on the environment, including the many ways of understanding the complexities and challenges of global environmental change. The integral ecology framework provides a valuable roadmap for responding to contemporary problems such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and land use change. Given the widespread and often heated debates about environmental issues, the publication of Integral Ecology is timely and appreciated.
Karen O’Brien, PhD, University of Oslo, co-author of Environmental Change and Globalization and member of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning team of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

 
“... an intelligent basis for discovering what questions need to be posed in our de facto postmodern era...”

In Integral Ecology, Esbjörn-Hargens and Zimmerman have produced a complex framework (rooted in a hierarchy of integrative levels proposed by philosopher Ken Wilber) for the multidisciplinary interrogation of ecological problems. This framework provides an intelligent basis for discovering what questions need to be posed in our de facto postmodern era, and how to formulate them most effectively.
Stanley N. Salthe, PhD, Brooklyn College, author of Evolving Hierarchical Systems and Development and Evolution

 
“It may even shift the course of our understanding of ecology.”

Integral Ecology is a remarkable work, indeed a tour de force. Like all path-breaking books, it will provoke lively discussion and inevitable debate. It may even shift the course of our understanding of ecology. This is a book that invites us to read, enjoy, reflect, and act. And the time is now.
Mary Evelyn Tucker, PhD, Yale University, co-editor of the 10-volume World Religions and Ecology Encyclopedia, and author of Worldly Wonder
