Self-awareness promotes human compassion?
Yes! The Grounded Relating process uses self-awareness tools to promote human compassion.
Grounded Relating is about rolling up your sleeves, and getting dirty in your own work and growth process. We promote human compassion, by grooming self-awareness and compassion for yourself. We deal in the nit and the grit, and the difficult little personality habits most people won’t talk about, and don’t want to own they have. Grounded Relating is all about that level of detail, because that is where the work lives, and where the growth begins, and finally, where the fuel that moves us all forward is manufactured.
Grounded Relating promotes human compassion through these self-awareness tools: The Psyche Cards, The Myers-Briggs Temperament Indicator (MBTI), The Five Love Languages and The Enneagram of Personality.
Tools like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), The Psyche Cards, the Five Love Languages and the Enneagram can help you hone your own self-awareness, detaching from ego. For example, when you know your Myers-Briggs (MBTI) type patterns, there is freedom to be as you are now in the pattern, or to flex and shift in the direction of the Other’s pattern.
The Psyche Cards are an excellent tool to use to help pry open your divinely sourced wisdom from that creative space of imagination, when the physical flesh can’t make the leap. Spurred by your desire for the beloved’s attention, an understanding of The Five Love Languages will curiously provide a platform of “Yes, AND!” and inclusion, where the witnessing and the inclusion of all sides is more readily accessible.
P.D. Ouspensky’s book “In Search of the Miraculous” quotes (found on VortexBasedMathematics.com) George Ivanovich Gurdjieff on the enneagram :
“Speaking in general it must be understood that the enneagram is a universal symbol…..A man may be quite alone in the desert and he can trace the enneagram in the sand and in it read the eternal laws of the universe. And every time he can learn something new, something he did not know before.”
Enneagram discovery will, among other things, open the door to freedom from egoic attachment. Without ego, the potential to see, experience and know, “We are all One,” is much more likely, or at the very least, less blocked.

The Psyche Cards: Who knows what YOU want and need? WHO actually knows that? Of course, it is YOU who knows that. Temporarily, you may have just forgotten, or perhaps are clouded by external stimuli. The Psyche Cards can help trigger or open the flow of your intuitive memory and knowing. Remember what you already know about yourself with the help of these unique, interpretively open-ended and archetypal set of images designed to unlock the mental portal of your own empowering wisdom, which is actually already–and always–available to you.

The Myers-Briggs Temperament Indicator (MBTI): Carl Gustav Jung began researching the principles associated with the MBTI personality assessment system in the 1920s. A mother daughter team, Myers and Briggs, continued the research to present times. The Myers-Briggs (MBTI) assessment tool provides a really fascinating look at your essential personality and how different “types” can perceive the same situation in entirely different ways. Learn the language of the personality habits you already know, but can’t name. Naming is power!
The Five Love Languages: What is your preferred Love Language? Is it Quality Time or Words of Affirmation? It could be Gifts or Physical Touch. Acts of Service is another of the Five Love Languages. You might be surprised how knowing your own Love Language can make your life and emotions easier to manage. Learn about the Five Love Languages and then you’ll be able to give the relationships of your life the kind of “love” they need to bloom and prosper.
The Enneagram of Personality: According to George Ivanovich Gurdjieff, the mysteries of the world could be understood through the Enneagram’s 9-number diagram. A little like a set of nested Russian dolls, the enneagram unpacks by sets of three in increasing orders of complexity. It’s a robust symbolic system that will clarify and intensify what you know about yourself, as well as reveal a lot about yourself you didn’t know, or had forgotten.
Start the conversation today
What’s the actual process? It all starts with a conversation together, where you talk about yourself, your goals, your stuck places, or your difficult personality habits. Then, together we would choose how to proceed, using the Myers-Briggs (MBTI), the Five Love Languages, The Psyche Cards or an Enneagram assessment, whichever you feel the most drawn to or desire to work with first.
Another benefit of the small group work is practicing your own listening skills to hear perspectives other than your own, without judging them.
Once you have a type pattern, a longing, or a love language identified that you feel is actually accurate to your own experience, each of the self-awareness tools can flesh out a way to work with your existing skills, as well as how to start developing new ones. Through one-on-one sessions or small group interactions, new ways of relating to your spouse, actualizing your passion, clarifying life-long goals, or handling setbacks, etc., could be discussed.
Create your own personal map for continued self-awareness growth
What’s the end goal? A personal map of endless new ways to joyously interact in your daily life.
It’s a rare opportunity to talk about yourself, how you think and how you feel in a supportive, non-judging, caring environment. This support is also available in one-on-one coaching, but the small group setting really hones your skills.
The active participation afforded by the small group also provides a certain spontaneity that deeply seats the new skill sets uncovered by working with the Grounded Relating self-awareness tools and process. And in the group process, you are likely to get several personal cheerleaders who actually know you as you are, who freely and lovingly support you in your struggles and your joy.
It’s a rare opportunity to talk about yourself, how you think and how you feel in a supportive, non-judging, caring environment.
Another benefit of the small group work is practicing your own listening skills to hear perspectives other than your own, without judging them. Additionally, when these other perspectives are heard unjudged, they usually point in a direction that your own habitual patterns have previously prevented you from seeing. It’s a win-win like no other! Why not start your self-discovery process today?
