People are wonderful — people are difficult! The Enneagram helps us understand both sides of this. We learn to see ourselves and others more clearly with both our strengths and problems. In this workshop we will explore the “problem” side of the nine types — the defenses and dichotomies — with insight, humor and compassion.
We need some defenses in our life, short of being enlightened! They serve an important purpose — to make boundaries, to hold us together and keep us safe. Underneath personality, they are part of our character structure. But when our defenses are automatic and habitual we get fixated and reactive, we lose contact with our inner selves and the people we love.
If you are committed to your own growth and to care and empathy in your relationships, knowing the defenses of your personality type will provide a vital key.
