ABOUT: USTA League
USTA League offers several programs throughout the year that vary by gender, age and skill level. Formats also vary, with singles, doubles and mixed doubles available. Teams and leagues are set up by ability, which means matches will be competitive and stimulating. In addition to tennis being social and fun, the health benefits of our lifetime sport include increased burning of calories, reduction in blood pressure and reduced stress. These benefits play a role in reducing the risk of heart disease, the #1 life-threatening disease among men and women.
Note: There will be an additional $12 for an online personality test you will take at home. The fee will be paid directly to the testing organization. You will be provided further directions at the first class.
The journey towards the center of our being is a long meandering road. One accumulates many experiences and memories along the way; these create and shape our personality. Our personality then becomes the lens through which we see the world. However, the lens can be obscured due to incorrect processing of the nature of reality, thereby rendering our individual personalities as blocks that stand in our own way towards higher realization.
What’s an Enneagram?
The Enneagram is a tool (synthesized from several spiritual traditions such as Christianity, Sufism, Buddhism, etc) that is designed to help us find these kinks in our personality and then apply this self-knowledge to the process of self-transformation. It identifies 9 basic personality types, yet its goal is to point individuals in the direction of underlying spiritual unity. It helps us understand the roots of anger, avarice, sloth, deceit, envy, fear and other deadly sins and gives us positive tools to overcome these in ourselves and our loved ones. When we see our own personality holding us back from seeing Essential nature, we can simultaneously see the same in others as well, making us less judgmental and better able to sustain healthy relationships.
In this 4-week course we will explore both the Enneagram and Mindfulness Meditation. Both of these will be helpful in self-observation, self-inquiry and understanding one’s experience. The four weeks will be roughly divided into the following sub-topics.
Identifying each participants personality type
Getting to know our own personality type.
Becoming mindful of our hidden behaviors and thinking patterns
Developing a spiritual practice for overcoming self-limiting behaviors.
