Lavalla200> participants receive formation on the enneagram and discernment

22/05/2018: Italy

In the second week of Lavalla200>, the participants went to San Martín a Monte for the next steps of the formation.

Initially, they were organised into four fraternities composed of brothers and lay people, with the purpose of enrichening their experience and enabling intercultural learning.

In these fraternities, the members began to organise themselves with food, cleaning and prayers.

The formative itinerary of the second week contemplated two modules. The first of them, led by Brother Lluís Serra, was a great invitation to all for an inner journey.

Based on the enneagram, this stage was aimed at expanding self-knowledge, elucidating potentials, limitations and possibilities of each one. According to Brother Jorge Gaio, from the Brasil Centro-Sur province, it was an opportunity to deepen personal characteristics and abilities.

“With this tool, I was able to become more aware of how I behave in more relaxed moments and in the tensest, looking for more healthy and fraternal interrelations,” he says.

In the second module, the Australian Brother Graham Neist addressed aspects related to discernment and how it is produced in the small daily decisions, the society relates it as great decisions, forgetting that they are the small daily actions that make possible that discernment. It is a procedural exercise.

Another highlight was the importance of contemplative practice. This module allowed the participants a refinement in the election process of the international and intercultural community in which they will act in the next two years.

The week ended with cultural immersions in cities near San Martin, such as Assisi and Florence.
