Instincts & Subtypes

Oct 28-30, 2022


In Instincts & Subtypes, you’ll learn the three instinctual drives and 27 subtypes. Every person has three instinctual drives with one that tends to be more central in our daily lives and relationships. This primary instinct determines our subtype.

The three instinctual drives include:

  • Self preservation, which guides our relationships with home, food, security, family and warmth in personal relationship
  • One-to-one, which fuels our personal vitality, sexuality, intimate relationships, and our experience of spiritual union
  • Social, which forms our friendships, our participation in groups and community, and our social identity

Students will: 

  • Explore how the 27 instinctual subtypes operate in your life
  • How we make choices about our personal priorities and major projects
  • How subtypes affect our relationships at home and at work
  • How to balance work, home and intimacy
  • Managing the emotional habit of our type
  • How to live with authenticity while adapting to a rapidly changing culture
  • Deepen their experience of the Narrative Tradition by serving on a type panel and reflecting on their type
  • Explore and understand healthy functioning in all three of the subtypes related to their type


  • Three days of live teachings and practices
  • 28-page workbook
  • Interactive cohort community
