Intro to the Enneagram

Monday, January 28 – Types 1-4
Monday, February 4 – Types 5-9
Keystone in Hyde Park

The Enneagram is a powerful tool for understanding yourself and others by discovering your personality type. Let go of old habits, discover new insights and feel good about who you really are.

These gatherings will introduce some basic concepts about the Enneagram – a personality typing system that uses both ancient wisdom and modern psychology. It is an amazing tool for change, for understanding yourself and for understanding other people.

The Enneagram can provide insight into your behaviors, your challenges and your true strengths. It can provide insights into your relationships – both personal and business. It can help us see the way to move in new directions – embrace new ideas – be free from old habits – have more confidence and courage.

Be sure to save the date for February 22-23 for an Enneagram Weekend for young adults at the Over-the-Rhine Campus (1310 Race St) led by Leslie Hershberger.

We will use The Liturgist Enneagram podcast (episode 37) as a way to introduce the Enneagram and prepare for the Enneagram Weekend. The podcast is two hours long, so we will break it down and discuss types 1-4 on January 28 and 5-9 on February 4. Please come to the gathering having listened to those sections of the podcast.

Enneagram Weekend

Friday, February 22: 6:30p-9:30p
Saturday, February 23: 10:00a-5:30p
Over-the-Rhine-Community Church (1310 Race St.)

A free event for young adults (including college-aged) to learn from Leslie Hershberger.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light. Self-compassion is key because when we’re able to be gentle with ourselves, we’re more likely to reach out, connect, and experience empathy.”—Brené Brown

The Enneagram is a tradition that enables us to deepen compassion for ourselves and another. This powerful personality system reveals 9 core patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.


Overview of the weekend:

Friday night will be an interactive introduction to the Enneagram as a way to understand yourself and others. Snacks will be provided.

Saturday will consist of learning more through Panel Discussions (participates will make up the panel), reflection, and discussions. Snacks and lunch will be provided.

The hope is for people to leave with more understanding of self and others that will lead to more empathy, healthy relationships, and new insights.

This event is free, but as a way to provide the best possible hospitality, we ask that people register:
