What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram is an ancient and elegant tool for personal and spiritual growth. Through non-judgmental observation of ourselves and others, the Enneagram fosters the compassionate interpersonal relations essential for life and ministry. The Enneagram is about identifying and developing the essentially good energies of your personality, allowing your true self to emerge.

 Seminar Goals:
• Learn and make practical use
of the Enneagram system
• Learn one’s own type and
how to work with it
• Learn the other eight types,
and how they relate to each other
• Learn which spiritual practices
may be most compatible with each type
