Deep Living Institute
In Deep Living, Dr. Roxanne Howe-Murphy illuminates the stunning and paradoxical mechanisms through which our personalities unconsciously take each of us in exactly the opposite direction of our deepest nature. The result is a seemingly irresolvable inner divide.
Offering a radically compassionate, rare and mature approach to personal change, Dr. Howe-Murphy integrates the ancient wisdom of the Enneagram with presence-based practices for everyday living and unexpected healing processes that will transform how you see and experience yourself, and the world around you.
Shifting where you put your attention, your innate and evolutionary capacity for the deep intelligence of presence grows and you move toward your soul's true longing and purpose. Tapping into your direct, in-the-moment experience leads from a distorted sense of self and others to an authentic connection with what's true, including:
from inner inadequacy to real inner authority
from struggle to real inner peace
from being in the grip of personality to real inner liberation.
Deep Living introduces the radical idea that the path to happiness and fulfillment is not about fixing something that's broken in you. Rather, it's about understanding and being with yourself in an entirely new way.
Our personalities, when operating on automatic, take us in exactly the opposite direction of what our souls most want, of what will create our deepest fulfillment.
The inner divide, the inner struggle that includes judging and cutting off big parts of yourself, diminishes to the degree that you learn to allow, accept, and 'be with' the range of inner experience that comes with being the unique person you are.
Presence matters. Meeting whatever is showing up in your life with compassion and non-judgment is the basis for healthful and sustainable transformation.
Deep Living points you to direct contact with your own knowing. As you honor your soul's journey of healing, you become liberated to express the gifts of your true nature.
Each of the nine dominant Enneagram types has its own version of an internal (and hidden) architectural blueprint which, when unknown to us, shapes our internal dialogue, our perception of self, of others, and of our relationship to the world. Here we cannot be aware of real choices.
One size does not fit all. There is a unique and powerful path of healing and transformation associated with each of the nine Enneagram points.
When we awaken to the illusion created by the blueprint we come into deep contact with that which is Real, Enduring and Essential within.
The Enneagram is a map of love in action.
Be at home in yourself at last
I had never used the Enneagram before when I read Deep Living, but that didn't matter. I gained some insights into myself that have transformed several limiting beliefs I've carried for years. It was fascinating to discover that people often do the opposite of what will give them what they truly want. This book helps you identify how you might be sabotaging your greatest fulfillment and makes the process of changing that actually enjoyable. This self-help book isn't trying to change you or fix you; it just empowers you to get out of your own way, make better choices for your life and stop wasting so much energy resisting. I feel less stressed, more present, and like I've developed a sixth sense for my own ease and joy. A. Logan
Deep Living the Path to Authenticity
I'm a longtime fan of Dr. Roxanne Howe-Murphy's work and an ongoing student of the Enneagram as a framework for understanding ourselves and what drives us. Deep Living, narrows in on the relationship we have with ourselves. If you read this book you will have tools to feel more comfortable in your own skin - more authentically you. With Roxanne's guidance, we are shown how to come home to our most authentic selves, and as we do, we discover that our relationship to the challenges and opportunities in our lives changes, as well.
Use what you learn to take steps that are out of your comfort zone, feel pain, while being courageous and trusting that you are becoming more of who you are with each step. The cliché, "get out of your own way" will have new meaning after you realize that your personality is running the show and not allowing your true nature to shine. Read Deep Living and breath a sign of relief. Maria Cristini
