The Enneagram is a powerful tool for personal transformation, based on a collection of nine distinct strategies for relating to the self, others, and the world. This group will discuss a different Enneagram topic each month. Topics will be announced several weeks before each session. Some basic knowledge of the Enneagram will be helpful. Please join us for one or all sessions. There is no book, but Caroline and Calan will provide a zoom link and possibly some web resources before each session.
September 13 – Who are we? Strengths and Challenges
Each Enneagram type has its own set of strengths and related challenges. We will give an overview of some of the attributes of each type, and discuss how we relate to these strengths and challenges.
October 11 – Where are we going? Idealization and Avoidance
The place that our type wants to go and the place it wants to avoid have a big impact on each of our lives. We will give an overview of each type’s idealization of type and its avoidance, and discuss if/how our lives are impacted.
November 8 – How do we defend ourselves? Defense Mechanisms
In order to keep our type in place, each type has a specific defense mechanism. We will discuss nine common defense mechanisms and how they relate to the nine types.
December 13 – What do we do now? Changing and Growing using the Enneagram
Using the Enneagram as a guide, we will discuss how to use self-observation and continuing practice as a way to change our behaviors and grow in our lives.
