The Enneagram: 9 Styles in Relationship
Presenter: Dale Rhodes, MA, MS
Saturday, February 1, 2020 (9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)
Price: $50 (includes lunch)
Whether new to the Enneagram or seeking a refresher, this workshop promises to inform and deepen our understanding and application this incredible tool in our lives and work. In this workshop, we will use the Enneagram in the context of our relationships. In any relationship, be it friendship, family, work or romantic, most of us can remember disagreeing about something insignificant. Often, a minor spat can spiral into a major conflict without deeper exploration. The Enneagram is a powerful tool to get to the heart of the matter in conflict, as well as deepen intimacy by helping us to identify our own blind spots and compulsions.
In relationship, the Enneagram also helps us cultivate understanding and empathy for the blind spots and compulsions of those we interact with. Perhaps we identify first as The Protector, someone who brings focus to the value of strength; while our friend is The Romantic, someone who brings focus to the value of inner experience. Understanding these “lenses” through which we filter information can help us focus on useful ways to deepen our interactions. This understanding creates a bridge to support better communications, more ease, and greater compassion.
Join us as we engage in lively dialogue and vibrant inquiry about the nine types. Appropriate for all levels.
