Enneagram & Relationship: Character Structure, Triads, & Subtypes

When: November 10 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Where: 1694 Union Street

Instructor: Polly Cherner

Cost: $165

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 focus on our relationships and our Character Structure (Idealization, Avoidance, & Defense Mechanism). The day will start with an hour-long yoga class led by Pad Instructor, Emily Posselius, to get you into your body.  Following class, Enneagram expert, Polly Cherner, will lead you through the Enneagram personality system and how it relates to your personal relationships. The Enneagram offers many insights into the gifts and challenges in relationship: How do we defend ourselves? How do we idealize the other? What is it that we tend to avoid? The group will involve inquiry, dialog, and working in pairs. While this is not a beginning group, all are welcome!   Polly Cherner has been immersed in the study of the Enneagram for the last fifteen years. She certified in 2005 with the Enneagram Professional Training Program, founded by Helen Palmer and Dr. David Daniels. She currently leads Enneagram Panel Evenings once a month, conducts beginning classes and study groups throughout the year, and holds individual Enneagram Conversations with folks interested in discovering where they fall in this insightful system. She and her husband, Randy, have raised three sons in San Anselmo, CA. Feel free to contact Polly at [email protected] with any questions before the workshop!
