Who am I?
This is one of the most profound spiritual questions we can ask ourselves. The Enneagram is a powerful awareness tool that not only helps answer this question, but also offers deep insights into and an appreciation for others. The Enneagram explores 9 different ways (9 Enneatypes) of viewing and relating to the world. The 9 Enneatypes hold differing worldviews, are driven by different core motivations about what is most important to them, have different types of challenges and strengths, and tend to fall back on predictable behavior patterns when under stress.
By offering a multi-dimensional map to better understand one’s self and others, the Enneagram opens a pathway towards greater freedom and compassion. Ultimately, the Enneagram takes us all on a journey to better understand who we are, to appreciate our differences, and to connect more whole-heartedly and authentically with others.
During each class we will watch short videos of men and women who represent each of the 9 types, share and listen to each other, and consider how we can use our new awareness to relate more effectively and joyfully with friends, family & others. Everyone is welcome, whether you know nothing, a little, or a lot, about the Enneagram. Join us for this fascinating and fun class series!
