Teachings that open a higher perspective

The Enneagrams of The Fixations, The Original Teachings includes Oscar Ichazo's Theory of Protoanalysis,® the introduction of the Theory of the Enneagram, and the doctrine of the Fixations.

Behavioral Patterns

This publication has an in–depth description of the Fixations to clarify and illuminate their dynamic process and show panoramically the mechanisms of each Fixation, revealing the behavioral patterns of our life. Included in the presentation are the enneagrams of the basic structure of the ego–Fixations that are essential for understanding the Fixations.

The Fixations produce strategies and schemes that become deeply ingrained in our ego–personality, manifesting as habitual patterns of conduct and behavior.

A Map of Understanding

The enneagrams in this book provide a map of the Fixations which include:
• The Fixations
• The Existential Attitudes and the Instincts
• The Three Centers, Instincts and Points of View
• The Divine Forms and the Integral Virtues
• The Divine Principles, Domains and Fixations
• The Passions and the Immoral Force

Self–Observation

Self–observation is necessary for any internal and spiritual growth as recognized in all real spiritual traditions. Oscar Ichazo's Teachings and practices direct us to witness our behavioral patterns, a proven way to dissolve the structures of the artificial lower ego.

Compassion

The Teaching of the Fixations is profoundly human and inevitably promotes the State of Compassion, meaning mutual comprehension and understanding. Thus, it becomes possible to open and connect with an objective communication with others once the Fixations have been recognized and understood for what they are.

"Knowledge and discovery of the Fixations are determinants for our internal growth."
– Oscar Ichazo
