Mondays, January 25 and February 29, 7:30 p.m.–8:30 p.m.
Once a month, we gather to take a taste of the Enneagram - we select some aspect of the Enneagram system and take a 'bite' to see what it has to offer us about ourselves and others. Come join with others to focus our attention on some part of the Enneagram and spend some time there together, both in a learning way and in an experiencing way, as we savor what this way of looking at ourselves has to offer.

The Transformative Power of Conflict with Diana Redmond

Saturday, May 19, 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

If you enjoy the Enneagram as a tool for learning and relating to people then this workshop is for you. Familiarity with the Enneagram will be helpful, but is not required.

When we work with conflict in more creative, open, and heart-felt ways, we not only transform the nature of our conflicts, but we transform ourselves.

What does it take to embark on this journey? How are we called upon to show up? What inner work do we need to do? And how can the Enneagram help us to transform conflict into an innovative, generative force?

When we have the discipline to sustain curiosity, the willingness to take a risk, faith in the creative process, and the willingness to imagine a web of relationship with those with whom we disagree, conflict becomes both a spiritual and healing path. More>

The Key to Freedom: Unlocking Enneagram Defense Systems of Idealization, Avoidance, and Defense Mechanisms

Saturday, February 16 (10 a.m. - 4 p.m.)
The Enneagram describes nine character structures and a key aspect of this structure is our defense system. We all need a psychological defense system, especially as children.
