The Enneagram is a personality typing system that consists of nine different types.The nine types (or “enneatypes”, “ennea” means “nine”) are universally identified by the numbers 1 to 9. Everyone is considered to be one single type, although one can have traits belonging to other ones. While it’s uncertain whether this type is genetically determined, many believe it is already in place at birth. Intrigued? You can learn more about the Enneagram here, however, no prior Enneagram experience is needed, as participants learn and assess their “type” in this 4-hour seminar.
A follow up seminar in Winter 2017, entitled Creating Spiritual Practices, will allow participants to develop a formational pathway in which they will be able to enter into spiritual practices based on their personality.
