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. Individual Retreats cost $70 per person, Two Retreats: $130 per person ( SAVE $10) Register for all three: $175 (SAVE $35)
There's nothing wrong with developing a healthy ego and at the same time seeing and freeing yourself from the limitations of the ego's demands, grasping and reactions. Herb will go through each Enneagram type as a model of what a healthy ego looks like and how to develop the healthy traits of all nine types, with many tips to do the things we are all learning to do: being loving, passionate but detached, in witness to our minds and others' behaviors, in a relaxed but awake approach to life, letting go of demanding that anything be different than it is in this moment.
