Orignally an oral tradition, with roots in Christianity, Sufism, Kabbalah, and other religions traditions, the Enneagram (pronounced ANY-a-gram) is a geometric figure representing the 9 different faces of the Divine. The Enneagram is not a religion but it can help illuminate one element central to all spiritual paths- self-knowledge.

It offers tools to live lives of love, of understanding and compassion, of union with the Holy One. But we all get stuck in icky feelings- icky about ourselves and ickyness in our relationships. We are all aware that we put up blocks and walls and tend to, on some level, love our misery. The Enneagram is a way to understand our own compulsions, motivations and behaviors, and offers a path toward healing and wholeness.

On Tues.July 16 at 5:30 will begin with an overview of the Enneagram and the 9 types it describes. We will also discuss “wing” types and how stress and/or integration can move in our lives. We will work together to type ourselves.

On Tues August 6 5:30 we will share our experiences of living with this newfound knowledge and how understanding oneself — as well as traits and energies of the people in our lives — can be transformative. We’ll brainstorm how this knowledge can influence our lives for the highest and best good. We’ll share resources we’ve found and answer questions.
