$50 includes handouts and Enneagram workbook
The Enneagram is an archetypal system that offers in-depth insight and a rich map to personal development. Rather than boxing people into narrow categories, it opens pathways to self-discovery and greater self-awareness. It does so by uncovering the patterns of behavior that sub-consciously motivate us to act in particular ways. In the revealing, we are in turn empowered to transcend them and to develop richer, more supportive ways of being.
The Enneagram also speaks to the journey of integration in profound ways, uncovering the uniqueness of each individual and their journey. Not only does it illuminate what holds each of us back in our lives, it also offers insights into the path toward strength and liberation, connecting us to our higher selves.
The Enneagram is an ancient tool for deepening our understanding of ourselves and others. Its name comes from the Greek "ennea" meaning "9" and "gram" meaning "figure." The 9-pointed figure of the Enneagram points to descriptions of nine personality types. In studying the wisdom of the Enneagram we begin to understand our own personal patterns of behavior and the motivations underlying each pattern. Like our current exploration of compassion in worship, it helps us to develop an inner observer and discover ways to break habitual ways of thinking, feeling, and acting that limit our full potential. At its core, the Enneagram provides spiritual and psychological insights that show us both the bane and the blessing of who we are. In so doing, it aids us in becoming our truest, most compassionate and highest Self.
