Podcast #13 — Wednesday, July 29, 2009 — The Wounded Healer
On this program we will be focusing on the Enneagram as a tool for spiritual growth through the lens of the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender (GLBT) experience. GLBT people experience imprisonment in ways that are unique, either through their own internalized self-rejection or through the cage of familial, societal and religious homophobia and intolerance. On this show we welcome Enneagram teacher and Catholic priest, Jake Empereur, who has written on the subjects of the Enneagram and spiritual direction as they relate to GLBT people.
We will discuss the special charism and prophetic contribution that GLBT people can bring to the world as they do their spiritual work of freeing themselves from both inner and outer forms of oppression. As they transform their wounds into gifts they awaken the liberating spirit within their own lives and help release that healing spirit to challenge fear and transform prejudice wherever it exists within our social and religious institutions.
