The workshop will explore the many facets, interconnections and uses of the Enneagram through discussions, practices and meditations. Through self-observation and self-understanding we will see the pervasive influence of our personality type on our relationships, our work and our home life. Through these insights we will come to know ourself more fully and be liberated to move towards a more loving and fulfilling life.
The workshop will be devoted to the primary goal of the Enneagram; to provide us with a broader perspective on our lives and to use these insights as a basis for personal growth and transformation.
The later part of the workshop will include some new and innovative frameworks, particularly the use of the Enneagram for radical transformation, for ourselves, and in coaching or counseling, for others. The workshop will endeavour to place the Enneagram within a broader psychological context, drawing on Jung's work with the shadow, individualisation and the transcendent function. There will also be some linkages to contemporary spiritual teachers.
The workshop will be of interest to anyone wanting to move towards self-knowledge, more fulfilling relationships and greater presence in their lives. It may be of interest to counselors and coaches in providing specific frameworks to facilitate transformational change.
For those without prior knowledge, it is recommended that you read as much material on the Enneagram as possible. The Wisdom of the Enneagram by Don Riso and Russ Hudson is highly recommended.
A binder and comprehensive course materials will be provided at the workshop. Morning and afternoon teas are included.
