This weekend promises to bring both insight and inspiration as well as provide an entertaining look at the nine numbers of the Enneagram. The workshop will include an intense walk through all nine numbers — and how their “wings” influence them — and then a look at how each number tends to behave in times of stress, security, and grief. This workshop is perfect for both those who have never heard of the Enneagram and for those who already know their number and are looking to go deeper.
What IS the Enneagram? The Enneagram is an ancient way of describing and understanding nine different personality types. Through the discovery of your personality type, you will be better able to understand your motivations, your way of seeing the world, what evokes stress and security for you, and the ways in which your “God essence” is uniquely present in you.
Why is study of the Enneagram important? Learning your number and all of its characteristics — and how that number interacts with other numbers provides a unique roadmap for making the most of our relationships with others, allowing you to offer grace and compassion to others as well as yourself.
“I love the enneagram! As I continue to delve into the wisdom of the enneagram, I have had many epiphanies about my own way of relating to others, to God, and to the world. It has been enormously helpful!”
— Rev. Linda McDermott
“The enneagram is a great tool for better understanding ourselves, our relationships, and even our spiritual lives. Not only has it been helpful for me personally, it has also been helpful to us as a church staff to better understand one another and have a greater appreciation for how our differences make our staff team stronger.”
— Tim Bruster
