An Introduction to the Enneagram, Boulder, CO
Nov 1
9:00am - 1:00pm (MDT)

The Enneagram is a dynamic system that describes nine personality types, each with distinct habits of feeling, thinking and behaving. Each type has a coherent pattern in how the world is perceived, yet is biased by perceptual filters that cloak or amplify certain aspects of reality. With great accuracy, the Enneagram allows you to look deeply within your own character and to clarify relationships with your partner, family members, friends, clients and co-workers.

In this class we will:

  • Explore the nine types as described by the Enneagram through the centers of intelligence (head, heart and body)
  • Reveal the primary function and motivation and for each center and elucidate type differences within them
  • Practice body-centered awareness techniques to work with your type

Few personality systems delve into the motivations of our behaviors. The Enneagram helps us to understand how we orient internally to our worlds and the motivations for those orientations, like the needs of love, safety and belonging. When we inquire into the need that is motivating a certain behavior, we begin to perceive through the eyes of compassion.  The Enneagram also encourages us to develop the amazing gifts that we bring with our different orientations.

Taught in the Narrative tradition, the format of this class is highly interactive, fun, informative, and transformative. Through personal interviews, guided meditations, lectures and experiential practices, we can come to understand our own worldview intimately and learn about the worldviews of others.
