The Enneagram: A Tool for Spiritual Growth (online)
September 12 - October 3, 2022
Why the Enneagram? Why now?
Pursuing spiritual work without working on our personality
typically results in a lack of resolution of deep-seated issues and a lack of true integration of our spirituality….
This perspective can profoundly shift our understanding.
As we begin to re-enter personal and professional relationships that were long put on hold, we may find ourselves experiencing conflict that was not there before. Our faith may have grown weaker or grown stronger, or perhaps it has simply changed. The time may be right for spiritual renewal.
The Enneagram can help. Commonly described as a set of nine fundamental personality types, it is more accurately a map of the human psyche. Our ego provides each of us a lens through which we view the world and the lens can get in the way of growth. The Enneagram enables us to recognize our lens and begin to expand our spiritual awareness to include other ways of seeing reality – and we may even understand other people better, too!
In this first part of Cranaleith’s Enneagram series, learn about the nine personality structures in ways that are enlightening both to beginners and to those with knowledge of the Enneagram.
- Session 1 – Introduction to personality theory and exploration of the human heart center where shame is powerful
- Session 2- Introduction to Enneagram history and exploration of the human head center where fear drives us
- Session 3 – Introduction to the inner dynamics of the Enneagram and exploration of the human gut center where anger rises
- Session 4 – Integrating session and finding ourselves on the Enneagram
Each session will involve a mindfulness exercise, interactive learning and discussion.
