Men of Illuman Enneagram weekend

Friday, April 14, 2023 5:00 PM to Sunday, April 16, 2023 2:00 PM

Come join The Men of Illuman New England for a deep dive into the spiritual wisdom of The Enneagram.  This interactive retreat will start with dinner on Friday, April 14, 2023 and conclude mid- day, Sunday, April 16.  

Your experience will be enriched if you have some familiarity with your Enneagram type.   Men who are unfamiliar with their primary type and their wings are encouraged to use the link and/or book below to help them discern it.  We also recommend reading the book, The Sacred Enneagram by Christopher Heuertz.

To get started, you are invited to use  The Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator to identify your type and your triad.  Another useful resource is The Essential Enneagram by David Daniels and Virginia Price [ISBN 97-0-06-171316-3].  The cost of each is around $10.00.  

Part of the retreat will involve each of us sharing about how our type suggests our strengths when we are at the top of our game, and our challenges when we are under stress.  We will also be especially curious to explore how the Enneagram gives us insight into our spiritual development. 

The retreat will provide each of us with the opportunity to learn – from prerecorded video presentations, small group sharing, large group processing, and time spent wandering in nature.  Weather permitting, there will be a campfire on Saturday night to further deepen our connection with self, others, and the divine.

Retreat starts with check-in on Friday evening, April 14 at 4 pm with dinner at 6:00 pm followed by introductions and a brief program. The retreat concludes with lunch on Sunday, April 16.

All registrants are expected to participate in the entire program.

Onsite lodging space is limited to the first 15 men who register.  Meals and lodging are included in the registration fees of $350.00 for single room, $300.00 for double room, and $245.00 for commuters.  

Once the rooms at Rolling Ridge are filled, we have arranged for additional accommodation at the nearby Holiday Inn. Contact Tony Pelusi for details.

To support the ongoing work of Illuman in New England, we will be collecting a freewill offering from all participants upon arrival.($25 recommended amount).
