Saturday, October 22: Introductory Enneagram Workshop (11am-2pm) by Karen Blanchette and Katie Ring

Are you interested in better understanding why you do what you do?

Do you sometimes wonder why people seem to think fundamentally differently than you?

Would you like to increase you understanding of yourself and others?

Have you heard about the Enneagram, but don't know where to start?

To help answer these questions and more, we invite you to spend an afternoon with us exploring the Enneagram Personality Typing System in our introductory workshop. The enneagram is a dynamic and powerful personality typing tool that is based on 9 distinct patterns of thinking, feeling and acting. 

In this workshop we will:

• Learn the basic structure of the Enneagram, explaining key concepts such as wings, growth behavior, and triads.
• Learn about the nine distinct personality types, paying close attention to each type's strengths, challenges, and thought patterns.
• Help you explore what your own enneagram type might be and how to use that knowledge to cultivate self-growth and better relationships with others.

You do not need prior knowledge of the enneagram and all levels of enneagram experience are encouraged to attend.

Proceeds help fund furthering our Enneagram education.

There's also and Intermediate Workshop that day from 3-6pm. Sign up here
