Naranjo: The Great Composers and the Enneagram

Some years ago the late Claudio Naranjo gave this lecture, and I am glad that it is recorded. Naranjo was a expert personality theorist. We who were taught the enneagrams by him first hand at his seekers after truth retreats were very very lucky.

Naranjo was also a Gestalt therapist trained under Fritz Perls. He applied the enneagrams in therapy. I am only years later able to appreciate Claudio’s invaluable contribution to psychotherapy, when as a therapist myself, I manage to grasp the value of the aesthetics in healing the field in the therapeutic encounter.

Th above video features Claudio playing classical pieces of the great composers so that we can appreciate the nuances in the music created by the men whose personalities shine in their music.
