The Enneagram: What Type Are YOU?
The enneagram is a synthesis of ancient wisdom and modern psychology which has gained popularity in the last decade in corporations, churches, therapists’ offices, etc., in part because of its ability to help us with personal growth by showing us obstacles and supports within our own psyches. We learn that we aren’t our personality and that we aren’t trying to fix ourselves…we see ourselves as we are and begin to shift from personality to essence and we find freedom in ourselves and our relationships. In this session, you will take a short assessment to help you determine your personal dominant enneagram type. We will discuss a brief history of the enneagram, as well as an overview of the 9 dominant types of the enneagram and how each of the types relate to the world.
