Power of unveiling self knowledge-transformation through the enneagram

Friday, August 29th, 2008

What is the Enneagram? Definitely not another personality test that pigeonholes people.  It is a map of the inner worlds of nine distinct perspectives from which people act and respond to life.  It shows us our strengths, limitations, habits of attention and responses.  It helps you step out of the box which limits you - “your point of view.”

When some one does something we wouldn’t do, have you ever caught yourself saying or wondering “What in the world were they thinking?” Their actions surprise us, because their actions would not flow from our inner worlds and our viewpoint.

Thursday 4th of September at 8:00pm EST, I will have a wonderful guest to share with you on An Empowering Space - Your Hour of Power.

Dr. Roxanne Howe-Murphy’s work  inspires, deepens and animates that which is the best within us by focusing on healthy adult psychological and spiritual development. She is deeply committed to helping people wake-up to their true nature and heal, and uses the awakening and integrative body of wisdom called the Enneagram to support that process.

She founded LifeWise Learning Institute, an executive and life coaching company in 1997. She is an author, Enneagram Teacher and Coach. Roxanne is also the Director of the Enneagram Institute of the San Francisco Bay Area.

She teaches the Enneagram through classes, workshops, and retreats, and is an authorized teacher of the teachings of Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson, preeminent Enneagram teachers and authors of the best-selling Enneagram books.

Roxanne’s latest book, Deep Coaching: Using the Enneagram as a Catalyst for Profound Change, was written to support coaches and other professionals in integrating the Enneagram into their practices. The book has been well-received internationally and is being translated into Korean. Roxanne founded the Deep Coaching Training Program to further coaching professional development. ( Her book can be purchased in the Coaching section of my online store)

Her website is www.lifewisecoaching.com

Come enter an Empowering Space, where we will answer any questions on the Enneagram.  The number to call is 347 215 8414.  Come expand your world, remove the veil of your enneagram type and see how the enneagram can transform your life and relationships.

Power of Inner dialogues - What are we saying to ourselves?

Monday, August 18th, 2008

Can you imagine …. being able to have a conversation with your body, or a certain part of your body to uncover the source of its pain?

What if the thoughts we think and the words we say to ourselves do in fact create our experience, create dis-ease?

How can we use EFT - emotional freedom techniques along with inner dialogues to listen to our bodies?

My guest this Thursday 8:00 pm EST, on an Empowering Space _Your Hour of Power is Maggie Adkins, EFT Master.  Maggie has been a guest on our show before, and since we only had one hour to spend with her, she is back to share her brilliance with us.

If you have a nagging pain in a part of your body, and would like to uncover the source of the irritation or pain, she has an excellent technique that she is willing to share with us during this hour.

It is a call-in program and we would love for it to be interactive, so that she can share this technique with our listeners.  The number to call in is 347 215 8414.

Having done an EFT course myself, the day after Maggie’s last appearance on the Empowering Space, I have  witnessed first hand the benefits of EFT.

  • Where are you experiencing pain in your body?
  • What messages is your body trying to convey to you?
  • Are you ready to get to the source of the condition or pain?
  • Are you ready to listen to your body?

Maggie is in the process of writing her book “Inner Dialogues with EFT” which she intends to release in September. This is an opportunity to hear about her unique technique.  If you have interesting results using this technique and would like to be in her book or just are interested in ordering the book send an email to

My video blog

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

Last week Friday when Randy Pausch died at the age of 47, I wanted to include his video of “The Last Lecture” as a tribute to him on my site. Well since then, not being IT literate, I have been receiving warnings from adwords re suspicious content, and so I removed the files.

I have since started my own channel at YouTube so that I can share inspiring and empowering videos with you.

Power of connecting

Last weekend is one I will not forget. I was part of the planning committee for the 30th Reunion of my High school graduating Class. We decided it was time to get together about four months ago and all we did was send out the emails. All the ladies started to make plans to bring their families home or to get down here for the event.

Two months before the event the committee started meeting and hunting for our missing classmates, asking everyone to get involved in finding a friend….. (more…)
