The Enneagram is an ancient system that can help us understand human behavior. Used by spiritual guides for over 2000 years, this system describes nine personality styles with many variations. Although it is first and foremost a journey of self-discovery, this model of the Enneagram can also increase understanding and harmony in our relationships, offering a path for personal and spiritual growth.
As a result of participating in this day-long workshop, you will:
– recognize the complexity of being human;
– possess a greater understanding of yourself, your strengths and vulnerabilities, your fears and defenses;
– gain insight for deepening your spiritual life and discovering implications for prayer;
– find ways to bring humor and self-compassion into daily struggles; and
– receive tools and encouragement for growing toward your best self.
It is recommended (although not required) that participants read one of the two following books
ahead of time:
- The Enneagram Made Easy by Elizabeth Wagele and Renee Baron
- The Essential Enneagram by David Daniels and Virginia Price.
