Tools are what they are: tools. Whether they are techniques, knowledge, philosophies, psychologies, they support us to be more effective or precise to see, feel or do, to help us to realize, to understand, to give meaning to what we experience, to approach reality from different perspectives , to help us grow, to energize us, to challenge us. Sometimes they allow a process with the corresponding results that without them would not even be possible. But they are not the territory, they are not the reality. The territory is always the person, the organization itself and the society.

The richness of Satori3 is the diversity of its collaborators where each contributes its experiences and knowledge. Thanks to the way they collaborate with each other, each tool becomes available for application in every Satori3 intervention whenever it is useful for the purpose.

The tools cover the spectrum of dimensions to considered to complete the process of transformation: humanist, systemic and transorganizational

The Enneagram is a sacred symbol.

It makes clear that each aspect of the mind is nothing other than something of the Essence, functioning in a distorted way on a lower level – in the immediate thoughts or emotions. It follows that the contents of the so-called psychological types are the way in which the Spirit is reflected in the mind, the way in which the functioning of the Divine Mind in the human being is transparent.

Gurdjieff will add that the Enneagram explains the laws involved in the creation and unfolding of all aspects of the universe.

Deepening the psychological types, the Enneagram is a map of the human being, our inner life, our personality, our way of seeing the world. A system of study, knowledge and understanding of the Deep Self, of oneself and of others.

It describes 9 ways of seeing the world and of relating to it, 9 mental, emotional and behavioral dynamics, making us realize that, although we tend to repeat only one of them, they are all like resources in each one of us.

The Enneagram is a very useful personal and professional development tool. It does not aim at labeling, each human being is unique and unrepeatable, and although there is in every person a “dominant tendency” in our daily functioning, we can all access and benefit from other ways of seeing the world of everyone else.

Here are that marked the foundations of the Enneagram, although its precise origin and sources of knowledge are unknown.

  • The Sufi Naqshbandi Order
  • George Gurdjieff (1879-1949),
  • Oscar Ichazo

Configurations, or rather the systemic way of looking at organizational systems, is also a philosophy, having the system considered as a whole, without judgment, and with a look to the future. It is a method of few words, the reality of the organization as if shown on a drawing, taking it as it is. The experience of systemic way of looking teaches us to let go.

There are some systemic principles which makes businesses thrive.

The systemic principles are summarized here briefly:

First: an agreement by which each part of the organization has its appropriate place in order to function.

Secondly, a balance between give and take that leads to a healthy and growing change.

Third, give a place and recognition of each person, concept, founder or other element that contributes or contributed to the organization in its existence.

People are able to perceive patterns and relational structures, i.e interrelationships. This information remains within us, serve as effective and cognitive patterns and direct our actions.

Through a constellation these unconscious representations are externalized and are translated to spatial images, thus showing the significance of certain systemic contexts.

Some names marking the foundation of the organizational constellation work:

  • Bert Hellinger
  • Gunthard Weber
  • Insa Sparrer
  • Matthias Varga von Kibéd

Gestalt Therapy is a particular way of conceiving the relationships of the human being with the world. It emphasizes the awareness of current experience (“the here and now”, which encompasses the resurgence of a past experience) and rehabilitates the emotional and bodily feeling, generally censored in Western culture.

Gestalt Therapy is based on the holistic assumption that a human being reflects the inseparable unity of his or her bodily, mental, psychological and social aspects and, necessarily, that every individual is inextricably interwoven with his or her interpersonal and ecological environment. Gestalt Therapy has integrated psychoanalytic, gestalt theoretical and field theoretical, holistic, philosophical, phenomenological, zen buddhistic as well as psychodramatic influences into its theory.

In Gestalt Therapy the focus lies on the process of a person’s contacting and withdrawing from contact with his or her human and ecological environment as well as on the awareness of this process. Gestalt Therapy assumes that psychological disorders stem from needs, wishes, emotions and mental fixations of which they are not aware and which haven‘t been brought forth as a contact target

Gestalt therapy was founded in the socio-cultural context of humanistic psychotherapies. It was Friedrich (Fritz) Perls (1893-1970), whose intuition gave rise to this form of therapy together with his wife, Laura (Lore) Perls (1905-1990)

NLP is, above all, a model that allows us to approach in a practical, useful and effective way the understanding and modification of human behavior in any context.

It can therefore be adapted and applied to all types of systems organized on the basis of personal and interpersonal communication in general: family, relationships, work, enterprise and education.

Programming refers to our ability to produce and apply behavioral programs. Neuro refers to the sensory perceptions that determine our subjective emotional state. Linguistic refers to the means of human communication, both verbal and non-verbal.

NLP is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California,

The systemic-phenomenological approach – in business advice as in individual training – begins with examining problems as a symptom that could refer to one of the basic needs of the system that are not met. We welcome the problem because it tells us what the system needs in order to be at its maximum energy – whether it is an organization or an individual.

Sociodrama is an instrument of study in a group, that allows to know a social problematic, through the diverse points of view of the participants, who make a representation of how they have seen or lived a certain situation, and later, a discussion is established about the various points of view exposed.

It was developed by Jacob L. Moreno to explore sociological interests using techniques that have originated in psychodrama for psychology.

Theory U proposes that the quality of the results that we create in any kind of social system is a function of the quality of awareness, attention, or consciousness that the participants in the system operate from.

Since it emerged around 2006, Theory U has come to be understood in three primary ways: first as a framework; second, as a method for leading profound change; and third, as a way of being – connecting to the more authentic of higher aspects of our self.

Otto Scharmer is author of Theory U.

Psychodrama is a form of psychotherapy, and conceived initially as group therapy or deep group psychotherapy.

The psychodrama was created by Jacob Leví Moreno, inspired in the improvisation theater or spontaneous theater. It combines theatrical play, the movement of the body, the symbolic with the word and reflection. It fundamentally guides you to action, invites you to look from another place, to open and expand your map, to generate options and find your alternatives for change, the ones that best suit your lifestyle, your values, your essence.

Transpersonal psychology is a branch of psychology that integrates the spiritual and transcendental aspects of human experience with the framework and research of modern psychology. The term transpersonal means “beyond” or “through” the personal, and refers to the experiences, processes and events that transcend the habitual sense of identity, allowing a person to experience a greater and more significant reality. Their researchers study what they consider to be the highest potentials of humanity and the recognition, understanding, and actualization of the modified, unified, spiritual, and transcendent states of consciousness. Transpersonal psychology emerges as a “fourth force” after Humanistic Psychology, which studies Personal Development and Human Potential. It constitutes a different understanding of psyche, health, illness and personal and spiritual development. It is the only school of psychology that studies directly and in depth the functioning of the ego and the spiritual dimension of the human being.

The American psychologist Ken Wilber (1949-) distinguishes the transpersonal level as follows: the level achieved through spiritual development, which consists of transcending identification with body and mind, to reach a higher level of social, ecological and spiritual consciousness.

Richard M. Bucke (1837-1902), C.G. Jung (1875-1961) and Roberto Assagioli (1888-1974) as seen as the founders of what would later become Transpersonal Psychology.

Meditation is a universal spiritual wisdom and a practice found at the core of all the great religious traditions, leading from the mind to the heart. It is a way of simplicity, silence and stillness. It can be practiced by anyone, wherever you are on your life’s journey. It is only necessary to be clear about the practice and then to begin – and to keep on beginning.

Silence means letting go of thoughts. Stillness means letting go of desire. Simplicity means letting go of self-analysis.

Osho – excerpts from the book What is Meditation?

Mindfulness is a form of meditation.
Mindfulness as a psychological concept is the concentration of attention and awareness, based on the concept of mindfulness or full consciousness of Buddhist meditation. It has become popular in the West by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Despite its roots in Buddhism, mindfulness is taught devoid of any oriental components or terminology.

Mindfulness consists in paying attention, moment by moment, to thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations and the surrounding environment, in a manner characterized primarily by “acceptance” -an attention to thoughts and emotions without judging whether they are right or not- . The brain focuses on what is perceived every moment, rather than proceeding with normal rumination about the past or the future.

Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to mankind. Archaeological evidence places the first shamanic practices more than 40,000 years ago. These are part of our common cultural heritage and are universal.

The shamanic tradition thus constitutes the roots of all existing spiritual and healing models. You can find references of our shamanic ancestors in all cultures: the Celtic; The European; The Native American; Or Australian Aborigines, among many others.

Each shaman uses practices with characteristics typical of their culture, but all are based on the same Universal Principles. All the shamans of the world, for example, speak of the existence of parallel realities and of the Spirits of Compassion who work with the shaman and make healing possible. They all understand concepts such as: illness; nature; The soul or death. And everyone knows that it is possible to bring useful information from those other worlds.

These Universal or almost Universal Principles, which are repeated in the shamanic traditions of the whole world, conform what is called Universal Shamanism; And can be used successfully in a non-indigenous framework. This type of Shamanism allows that in western cultures like ours, we can access again to our legitimate spiritual inheritance.
