Introduction to Enneagram
The Enneagram is an archetypal framework for reflection and growth, offering in-depth insight to individuals and groups. There are nine main Enneagram types. Each type has its own set of strengths, vulnerabilities and ways in which the world is perceived and understood. This framework offers a rich map for personal and spiritual inquiry and development, opening a pathway to self-discovery and greater personal awareness.
The Enneagram is much more than a personality type. The insights you gain inform how you are in the workplace, within your family, in social groups and in your own spiritual and creative life. Understanding the Enneagram can help you uncover patterns of behavior that sub-consciously motivate you to act in certain ways. When you become aware of these patterns, you are able to better understand your potential in all areas of life. The Enneagram helps you make sense of who you are. It’s a powerful tool to help you attain greater self-knowledge and healing as you seek to live into your higher self.
This is a day-long program designed for those who are new to the Enneagram. You will receive an overview of the nine types and will participate through questions, exercise, and reflection.
