Prepare for an adventure – a possibly life-changing quest with the Enneagram: a unique and powerful device that invites us to understand ourselves and other people more deeply.
Take a deep breath. Prepare for an adventure – a possibly life-changing quest with the Enneagram: a unique and powerful device that invites us to understand ourselves and other people more deeply.
Described as a tool of compassion, the Enneagram combines ancient wisdom with modern psychological insights to detail nine distinct personality styles or life strategies that accurately describe the ways that each of us relates to our self, to others and the world. Each Enneagram ‘type’ has a different pattern of thinking, feeling and acting that arises from a deeper (often unconscious) inner motivation or worldview. Once we identify where we fit into the Enneagram a huge amount of personal information becomes available that can help us to grow and flourish in our individual lives and in our relationships.
This workshop will:
• Describe the nine personality styles, including their strengths, weaknesses and blind spots.
• Help participants to identify their type, along with its key issues.
• Focus on the ways that the Enneagram can help us to be more compassionate toward ourselves and others, and to navigate more effectively the world of human interactions and differences.
The ticket includes refreshments and an online questionnaire we will send you beforehand.
