Character_Structure_GraphicFrom astrology to the Enneagram, people have always looked for ways to understand who they are on a deeper level of meaning. But how many of these ways truly map onto your body structure and reveal your unconscious defense mechanisms? Most of them simply give you a label and a set of limitations and leave it at that, without telling you how to transcend those limitations, bust out of your patterns, and return to being present.

The study of Character Structures originated with Wilhelm Reich. As he looked at his client’s bodies and learned about their wounds, he found that certain ages of wounding produced characteristic patterns that could be seen in body, behavior, and beliefs. Understanding your own patterns will free you from the trap of thinking “That’s just how I am” and give you new strategies for surviving and thriving in the world. Understanding the patterns of your loved ones will help you act with skill and wisdom in your relationships.

My friend and colleague, Steven Kessler, has been working with character structure as a therapist for a decade. He has a unique perspective to share. Read below about Steven Kessler’s six module training that will explore each of these structures in detail and tell you how to work with them.

5 Personality Patterns: Steven’s new book!

5-personality-patterns-Steven-Kessler-200Much of our human suffering is not necessary. It is created by old patterns of feeling and acting that helped us survive the traumas of childhood, but then got stuck in our bodies. These patterns have shaped us so deeply that now we think that’s who we are. But these patterns are not your true self. In fact, they cover up your true self and prevent it from shining out into the world.

This exciting new book lays out that map and shows you the path out of your suffering and back to your true self. Once you know where you’re going, your journey will be easier. Without a map, you may have been walking in circles for years. With a map, you can find your way home.

Module 1: The Leaving Pattern (also called Schizoid)

The Leaving Pattern is developmentally the youngest of the patterns. It forms at the time the spirit is just coming into the body, when something prevents the spirit from attaching to the body and orienting itself to the physical world. This makes it hard to be here, but easy to leave.

In module 1 you’ll discover:

  • How to know if you’re caught in this pattern
  • The real reason some people are ‘highly sensitive’
  • What makes the physical world seem so scary to people caught in this pattern
  • How they use leaving to protect themselves
  • The underlying origins and motives of their behavior
  • How to reassure them with a light, playful contact
  • The value of a mobile attention
  • If you’re caught in this pattern, what you need to finally feel safe here

Module 2: The Merging Pattern (also called Oral)

After coming into the body, the next task is taking in food and love. If there wasn’t enough, a person can get stuck in this stage, still trying to get everything they need from others.

In module 2 you’ll discover:

  • How to know if you’re caught in this pattern
  • Why people who do this pattern are so focused on talking and being close
  • Why they get stuck in “I can’t! You do it for me.”
  • When they shift into “I can” and overdo it
  • How they cycle between those two states
  • How they got to be so good at connecting with people
  • How they can be great lovers
  • If you’re caught in this pattern, what you need to come back to yourself and build your own capacities

Module 3: The Enduring Pattern (also called Masochist)



Around age 2 a person shifts into putting out, expressing themselves and taking action to get what they want. If they were thwarted and punished for their behavior, they had to pull in and hide themselves to survive.

In module 3 you’ll discover:

  • How to know if you’re caught in this pattern
  • How people caught in this pattern get stuck and can’t move forward
  • Why they talk so little
  • Why personal Space is so important to them
  • Why they make good mediators
  • The power of being the Immovable Object
  • How their self-sabotage is really solving a deeper problem
  • If you’re caught in this pattern, what you need to do to get out of the hole and get moving again

Module 4:The Aggressive Pattern (also called Psychopath)

As will and strength develop, a child still needs to be lovingly contained and supported. If they had to face the scary times alone and will themselves to survive, they didn’t develop trust in others, but only in being powerful themselves.

In session four, you will discover:

  • How to know if you’re caught in this pattern
  • Why people caught in this pattern want to be in charge
  • Why they think fighting is necessary for survival
  • The power of being the Irresistible Force
  • Why they’re so focused on being competent
  • Their fear of trusting others
  • How to get them to listen to you and respect you
  • Why they can’t apologize
  • If you’re caught in this pattern, what you need to feel safe again

Module 5: The Rigid Pattern



If their parents saw only their performance and no one reflected their feelings and essence, the child thought “I am my performance” and instead of learning to be authentic, they learned to be correct.

In module 5 you’ll discover:

  • How to know if you’re caught in this pattern
  • Why people who do this pattern always need to be right
  • The value of Form and Order
  • Why it sounds like their Inner Critic is talking so often
  • How they became a believer in the Church of the One Right Way
  • Why they work so hard, achieve so much, and look so perfect
  • Why they often feel hollow and unsatisfied
  • If you’re caught in this pattern, what you need to reconnect with your heart and your inner wisdom
