These are strange times…

As you are avoiding the virus and crowds, you are spending months jammed into a space with your family, seeing the same people over and over in close quarters, and it gets tense. It feels like there is no escape, no room to move, and there is a natural irritation and anger that starts to boil.

It might have come out in a verbal attack, emotionally shutting down, drinking, or in binge watching whatever you can!

We will do many things to check out.

In a strange way, you might be feeling alone even though you are surrounded by people and have no space for yourself. With all this contact you still feel misunderstood, or unseen by those that are closest to you. It’s painful.


I want you to know there is hope… 


There is a possibility for more connection, for more ease and flow in your relationships. 

 You can come out of this Pandemic with more acceptance, with more free self-expression than you have known in the past.



Below we will explore the areas of your life where you might be feeling the lack of connection. And give you a taste of what’s possible with some crucial knowledge and some skill development.

Trouble Connecting With Your Parents: 
  • You cringe when you see their name appear on your phone when they call.
  • When you are with them the worst parts of your fifteen year old self emerge.
  • When you visit, you promise to yourself that you’re going to be patient with them, but you get frustrated with their communication within minutes.
Outcomes that support connecting with your parents:
  • You deeply understand their type, forgive them knowing they did the best they could, and forge a new path with deeper connection.
  • You celebrate and treasure the gifts they brought to you that you couldn’t see before.
  • You look forward to connecting… and sometimes you even call them!
Trouble Connecting In Your Primary Relationship:
  • You seem to be having the same argument over and over and it feels like a horrible loop.
  • All the smaller issues in your relationships are magnified because you are living together ALL THE TIME! (You can’t run and you can’t hide.)
  • You are socially distancing in the bedroom and you wish you weren’t.
  • At times, you trigger anger or frustration in your partner and you are not sure why.
Outcomes that support connecting, intimacy, and bedroom fun:
  • As you watch the deep dive for their Enneagram Type, you will learn how to support them and feel confident you can meet their needs.
  • You have the potential now, to step into the life you dreamed of when you first got together.
  • As you understand their type, and build relational skills, navigating the relationship becomes easy, there is more give and take, more contentment, more emergence of inner peace.
  • You move from friction and fights to connection and collaboration.
  • You look forward to going to bed early with your spouse because you are enjoying the night time activities!



Trouble Connecting With Work Colleagues and Clients
  • Your gifts and talents are not recognized by others, so you keep silent at work and are slowly dying on the inside.
  • You find yourself blaming your boss and associates for your dissatisfaction (but a small part of you knows there is something you can do to turn things around).
  • You judge others as incompetent, and even when you try, you can’t seem to bring the best out of them.
Outcomes that support connecting with Colleagues and Clients:
  • Understand their underlying motivations and improve communication.
  • Feel connection with your co-workers and look forward to going to work.
  • Know your contributions are welcomed and that you are appreciated (How would that be?)
  • Drop the fake politeness and address the real issues productively.
Trouble Connecting With Your Kids
  • You want your kids to open up to you so you know what’s going on in their lives.
  • You’re worried that you’re not getting enough quality time with them even though you are under the same roof 24 hours a day.
  • You worry that you’re going to permanently damage your kids through your homeschooling blunders.
  • You want to truly understand your kids fears in this time of Pandemic panic.
Outcomes that support connecting with kids 
  • Discovering your kids innate gifts and inspiring them to embrace those gifts and bring them to the world.
  • Strengthening family bonds and ties in the midst of these difficult times.
  • Have your kids know they are loved even when there is family discord.
  • Do your best to ensure that your parenting addresses their unique needs (based on their personality type) so they have the best life possible.

If any of the areas above sound familiar, we have a program that will help you re-shape your relationships in surprising ways.

Welcome to

“The Connection Experience”

We are offering virtual immersive event titled “The Connection Experience”, and it includes a “Deep Dive Reveal” session for each of the nine Personality Types found on the Enneagram.  In each “Deep Dive Reveal” you will see four people, all of the same type, share their inner world with you. They will let you in to see their emotional triggers, deepest desires, and worst fears.

Led by Ben Saltzman:

I’m a stand for deepening connections, heart openings, and your spiritual evolution.


When you watch these Deep Dive Reveal sessions you will shift your relationships with the people in your life. You will:

  • Build compassion for them, for the pain that they are in, and the fears that keep them from opening up to you. 
  • Learn how to communicate to get through to them so they will listen to you. 
  • Learn the secret combination to unlock their heart.
  • Recognize the strengths that they can bring to relationships. 
  • Have them feel deeply seen and accepted for who they are.
  • See the dance of your life with a new level of clarity.

This is a nine-day program. Sessions will be held in the afternoons from 4:00 PM to 5:45 PM Pacific Time.

Dates: July 22nd – 30th

The Enneagram Symbol and the Names of the Nine Personality Types

“I can’t recommend Ben Saltzman’s The Connection Experience highly enough. The enneagram has significantly helped me in understanding the closest people in my life, and therefore transformed my ability to connect with them in more positive ways. This is Ben’s mastery. Learning about your type and others can open your eyes to the relationships in your life in a whole new way and give you tools to make them even better.”
Mindie Kniss, CEO, Lucra

“The power of witnessing a panel on a specific Enneagram type is that I get to truly see my patterns and behaviors in action that are reflected back to me by other people…who aren’t me! When I’m more conscious of the unhealthy patterns that may be sabotaging me, I can make different choices, and work to become more effective in anything that I choose to take on. And Ben is a master of drawing out key insights and perspectives from the people on the panel for deeper learning for everyone. Don’t miss out on this valuable personal development tool.”
— Chris Kyle, a type Three and founder of Launch Academy 


“Ben has delivered exceptional value in helping me using the Enneagram. I’ve been training facilitators for 25 years and he’s the one I hire to coach my team, me and my wife… through some sticky situations! He brings relational skills that are deceptively powerful, and deep insights into how our Enneagram types are getting activated in the relationship. If you have a chance to watch him facilitate the nine Deep Dives and learn about the personality types of people in your life, sign up and do it!”

Jay Fiset, Founder of JVology
