The Enneagram is a model of the human psyche which is principally understood and taught as a typology of nine interconnected personality types. Even though each of us has all 9 types, one type is more basic to our motivation, thinking and behavior.  It is eye opening to discover our core type and subtypes and how to best communicate with people who possess each of the others.  Although its origins and history are convoluted, the Enneagram has been widely used in both business management and spiritual contexts through seminars, conferences, books, magazines, and DVDs.  It is a recognized resource for leaders.  In this series of Day Apart Retreats, we will first explore the basics of the Enneagram and then delve deeper into the relational and spiritual aspects that each of the 9 types offer.  Participants may register for one or more of the events. The first retreat is not a prerequisite for the other two as the 9 types will be overviewed each time.  If you want to understand people and their motivations, the Enneagram is a wonderful tool to better understand why people do what they do. 

 Life is about relationships and the Enneagram is an excellent tool to enhance communication, respect and confidence in relating to people who are different than you. We’ll start with a short review of the types. Then, Herb coaches on how to relate effectively to each Enneagram type, verified by the personality types who attend. He’ll reference the 45 relationship combinations and role play ways to communicate that work. Herb’s been a couples’ therapist for 40 of experience working with hundreds of couples.
