The Enneagram

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.

                                                                               -Aristotle  

The Enneagram is an ancient tool of self-discovery and understanding that leads to both wisdom and self-acceptance. This interactive workshop will help you determine your personality type and related characteristics. Learn why you can't stand a mess or why you create them, why you are fearful or why following the rules is so important to you. Your life will change as you look at yourself and your family through the lens of self-knowledge. The Enneagram does not put you in a box; it allows you to get out of it.

A Path to Wholeness via Awareness, Compassion and Gratitude

Wholeness does not mean perfection; it means embracing brokeness as an integral part of life.

                                                                                                                               -Parker Palmer

You are not created to be perfect, as in without flaw or mistakes. You are created to be whole, as in the truest version of yourself. Your life is a journey to this wholeness. There are many ways to become whole and three that have come down to us through the ages are awareness, self-compassion and gratitude. During this reflective workship, you will be invited to learn about and integrate these three practices into your journey of becoming your one, best, true self through teachings, contemplative experiences, poetry and sharing with fellow seekers.
