T.U.N.E. is intended to offer real support for our Inner Work.
TUNE acknowledges, the more we support one another, the easier our process of transformation
With TUNE we join with others who give encouragement and act as witnesses to our growth
With TUNE we can belong to groups, attend workshops, get one-to-one support
With TUNE we can put ourselves in situations that foster our real development
I think most of our lives felt out of tune during the 2020 and 2021 COVID19 Pandemic. I am developing TUNE to give us a new vocabulary to help us RETUNE our lives.
The Beatles song ‘Help from my friends’ is a way of understanding TUNE & how we Transform Using the Narrative Enneagram .
From childhood our personal song grew until we began to sing out of TUNE because of the challenges and chances of this fleeting world. We forgot the melody we were born with.
TUNE is a guide to help us ‘Re-Member’ our life’s melody with new lyrics - new words! Like the best songs, we enjoy them with our friends who sing a different but equally wonderful song of freedom.
We long to fly and all we need to ‘get by’ and ‘get high!’ is ‘a little help from our friends’. TUNE helps us release our potential from the invisible hand of our Type Structure.
I look forward to exploring our unique Life’s Melody together as we ‘try not to sing out of key’ with TUNE and learn to fly. Alan
Is a 9 Pointed diagram (Like an Octagram has 8 points).
Is a way to understand our actions, thoughts and feelings.
Gives us a new vocabulary to explain ourselves.
Is an insight into how we box ourselves up.
Is a Liberation Psychology or ‘Inside Job’ to unlock potential
Helps us see what is written on the window we look through.
Is a path to wholeness.
Is a way to relieve our self-inflicted distress.
Is not a religious symbol.
Does not box us up (we do that ourselves!)
Is not a Hogwarts style Sorting Hat.
Is not a party game to ‘nail’ our personality with a number.
Is not a way of helping others to stitch us up.
The T.U.N.E. Course will help understand what gets in the way of our openness to that which is greater than ourselves. It runs over approximately 8 sessions and by its journey’s end you will know your unique Tune and the key that is best for you. In life we find there are many restrictions in our life, and T.U.N.E. helps us understand these pinch points are caused by the evolved structure of our Type patterns. We then learn how to relax and open up to the Life Force and begin to fly again - like we used in our childhood.
Whether our community is a work-based team or a fellowship - the Enneagram helps us to recognise what is written on one of the nine windows we look through. Whatever team we work in - the Enneagram helps a team to develop self-awareness, compassion for each other and increased productivity. The T.U.N.E. Community is for people who have already begun their journey and know their Tune quite well.
Enneagram Informed Spiritual Direction is a ministry that can help open the ears and eyes of the heart. This is a particular ministry I have exercised for years, inspired by the Ignatian and Benedictine traditions and now the Enneagram
