Keys to Your Transformation

Hello. My name is Sunaina and I am able to show you what lies at the heart of any conflict or difficulty in any relationship and shed light on how to resolve them.

Welcome to “The Embrace”. I will assist you in being able to better understand yourself in relationship with others and bring about profound clarity and insight that you may never have considered possible.

About Me

I am a qualified counsellor through the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors and a qualified teacher of Human Sciences through the Southern Cross University. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Cultural Studies and Cultural Policy.

I am also a sincere practitioner of Bhakti Yoga and Jesus' “A Course in Miracles”. I am a mother of three children and for the last 20 years I have maintained my connection with Vedic culture for my own growth and development and for the nourishment of my children.

In 2009, I came into contact with the Enneagram through Eli Jaxon-Bear's teachings. Since this profound introduction I have been working with this sacred algorithm ever since.

The Path of Self Enquiry

Since early childhood, I was having to navigate and overcome many adversities which then extended into my life as a single mother. When I discovered that I am a type 8, it made sense to me why I had experienced more challenging adversities than most people I have connected with.

A characteristic of type 8 is that they are instinctively and fundamentally based upon truth: truth-seeing and truth-speaking. Seeing the bigger picture is the intrinsic nature for type 8. When I discovered this was indicative of the type 8, and recognising this nature within myself, I felt drawn to explore more. By contrast, a frustration arises when others are not able to accurately see the authentic intention of where a progressive type 8 is coming from. The result is  an overwhelming sense of disappointment which can then give rise to misunderstandings and conflicts. Observing this pattern within myself allowed me to realise my gift: to help others by shedding light upon where they are not able to see so clearly within themselves.

My connection with this incredible teaching tool has facilitated me through my own journey of reflection and self enquiry and assisted me in accessing a sacred wisdom within. As a result, I am able to deliver potent insights as to what lies at the heart of every problem in the dynamics of human relationships from any family member to friend, lover or work colleague.

How the Enneagram Transformed my Life

My ability to overcome the myriad of adversities throughout the course of my life has largely come from the insights I have gained from the Enneagram. This sacred science has given me rich insights into the human psyche and I am now able to understand the instinctive drives and motivations of others. This not only helps me avoid any further unnecessary pain and struggle, but it has also enhanced my relationships to heal, thrive, transform and flourish.

My journey and life skill has been about cutting to the source of any conflict and undoing the knot bound by any unresolved grievance. The process of healing transformation unfolds simply by acknowledging it and having the willingness to forgive it.

According to your own readiness for growth and expansion, I am able to unlock the key to your inner psyche, reveal your core drives and motivation, and facilitate your own transformation within yourself and in your relationships.
