The Movements work through all three levels, but the knowledge revealed by practicing these Movements in a Movements class is not intellectual knowledge, physical knowledge or emotional knowledge – it is finer than all these – so cannot be grasped in common terms; it can only be known as direct experience. It is so very refined and delicate that it finds a way through to the heart* which bypasses the intellectual, physical and emotional functions. To define this knowledge in intellectual, physical or emotional terms would require it to adopt the limitations of those terms, effectively turning it into coarse knowledge. This is why we are asked to keep the Movements discipline free of analysis or examination. For those who wish to understand more about this, the advice is: ‘practicing the Movements in a Movements class provides answers in time’.

The Enneagram

*Neither the physical heart nor the seat of emotion and sentiment but that space in the centre of the chest where spiritual consciousness begins to resonate as presence, clarity and light.
