Notes on Meditation Postures
(from 1997 workshop with Claudio Naranjo)
Meditation Postures by Enneagram Type:
o One (serenity) – Back straight, right hand up like a mirror and left hand resting on leg with thumb touching middle finger.
o Two (humility) – Hands crossed across the chest.
o Three (sincerity) – Hands supported on legs, thumb and middle fingers touching.
o Four (equanimity) – Like a scale in balance, palms up in the air, not supported.
o Five (nonattachment) – Hands supported on legs, palms up, turned inward.
o Six (courage) – Fists crossed over chest.
o Seven (sobriety) – Palms down on legs.
o Eight (innocence) – Prayerful hands (palms together, fingertips at chin).
o 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).
