Workshop Details

"Energy flows where attention goes.” You have the ability to redirect your focus of attention and move from a position of imbalance to balance. Awareness leads to change. The ancient Enneagram points to the survival strategies one has learned, as it identifies patterns of behaviors and strategies for relating to the world around you. It takes you further into yourself and empowers your capacity for greater awareness and self-understanding.

By recognizing your enneagram type, you will notice how your habits have essentially gained control of your life. There is a long-standing joke across enneagram researchers that the enneagram does not put you in a box; it shows you what box you are stuck in and helps you get out.

As you go deeper into the enneagram, you will discover the vast depth and brilliance it has to offer. This class contains a clear layout of the 9 enneagram types, which will quickly help you to identify your own patterns of behavior that take you from imbalance to balance.

The material is succinct and set up to give you “nuggets of wisdom,” rather than expound on the vast research. May you find your peace in the enneagram puzzle!
