Notes on Meditation Postures

(from 1997 workshop with Claudio Naranjo)

Meditation Postures by Enneagram Type:

One (serenity) – Back straight, right hand up like a mirror and left hand resting on leg with thumb touching middle finger.

Two (humility) – Hands crossed across the chest.

Three (sincerity) – Hands supported on legs, thumb and middle fingers touching.

Four (equanimity) – Like a scale in balance, palms up in the air, not supported.

Five (nonattachment) – Hands supported on legs, palms up, turned inward.

Six (courage) – Fists crossed over chest.

Seven (sobriety) – Palms down on legs.

Eight (innocence) – Prayerful hands (palms together, fingertips at chin).

Nine (action) – Left hand supported on leg with thumb and middle finger touching, right hand touching the “ground” (floor, chair).

Comments about the Postures:

o  Play with these a bit, improvise; for example, moving through your own and one or two others in a sitting.

o  No words; the body is the prayer, the focus of attention.

o  Meditate for 20 to 60 minutes a day (better to have a fixed hour because if you do it only when you “feel like it” you may be meditating when your focus is less problematic).

o  Then bring it into your everyday life (visualize that you are doing this).
