The Enneagram & Spirit: Exploring Personality Through Inquiry and Awareness

When: June 16 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Where: 1694 Union Street

Instructor: Polly Cherner

Cost: $165

Early Bird Rate $145 until Tuesday, June 12th! The Enneagram is a psycho/spiritual system of personality typing which speaks to our internal habit of attention that may keep us from being truly present. The Enneagram describes nine points of view on the world, each having gifts and challenges and each distorting reality as it is. When used in conjunction with a daily practice, like meditation or prayer or service, this system can offer insights on our spiritual path. Awareness of our habits is the first step to relaxing the habit and experiencing more internal peace. While we all may do similar activities in the outside world, what is happening inside may be quite different. An exploration of our own and other's habits may provide increased compassion and more connection in our intimate relationships. The journey of the spirit is compelling to many of us… and confusing at times. The Enneagram illuminates many unexplored pathways on this journey and offers an increased sense of community by deepening our understanding of self and other. Please join us for a daylong Enneagram workshop where we will start the day with an hour-long Vinyasa Yoga class led by studio owner, Leila Burrows, before delving into all nine Types. Discover your own dominant habit of attention. Expand your possibilities for listening, acceptance, and spiritual understanding. We will take the journey through each Type, exploring the gifts and challenges of that territory and experiencing in our bodies, hearts and minds what it is that hinders our fuller connection to our essence.
