The Enneagram is a powerful tool for understanding yourself and others through discovery, reflection, and practice.  The Enneagram can provide insight into your behaviors, your challenges and your true strengths. It can also provide insights into your relationships – both personal and business. The Enneagram invites us into deeper self-awareness and can help you see the way to move in new directions – embrace new ideas – be free from old habits – have more confidence and courage.

This event is for people who have never heard of the Enneagram to the Enneagram-curious or skeptical to people who can’t stop talking about it! The workshop will provide discussion, guided exercises and practical tools for applying Enneagram principles and inclusion practices to real-life situations, leading to a deeper and more integrated understanding of one’s personality and relationships.

The Enneagram is a tool for remembering our wholeness. It reminds us of our gifts and how to be more present in our true selves. Through clear and kind teaching, I use the Enneagram to highlight how we get stuck and ways we defend ourselves, so that together we can bring compassionate awareness to our patterns inservice of our individual and collective growth.
