Enneagram Workshops

I am so happy to welcome Enneagram Facilitator Carrie Jones to the Contemplative Studio for a series of Enneagram workshops this year. Carrie is also Family Life Pastor at Southridge Community Church and a current student at Knox College (Masters of Pastoral Studies). Carrie describes her approach to the Enneagram:

NWP_8297I am passionate about the transformative potential of using the Enneagram, and have experienced many healing changes from my work with the Enneagram. I facilitate the Enneagram from a place of empathy believing that we grow in empathy toward others and toward ourselves through understanding the Enneagram. I teach the Enneagram as a transformative spiritual map that can lead each of us to becoming our True Self and deepen our relationships with ourselves, others and ultimately with God.

We will be offering four workshops (May 11, September 21, October 5, November 9). The first workshop will be introductory and the following three held in fall will focus on each of the three “triads” in the Enneagram. Don’t know what the Enneagram is? Don’t worry! Here are some websites to orient you to the Enneagram as a tool for personal growth and development:

September 21, 2019 7-9 p.m.  – Workshop featuring a panel of Body Triad Types

We will spend the evening focused on types 8, 9, and 1, hearing about the experiences of that type through a panel of 3 participants. There will be a brief teaching about the 3 Centres of Intelligence and specifically about the Body Triad. Then we will invite panelists to speak about their personality, how that plays out in their relationships, and how they grow and stay healthy. The panel evening is a sacred and safe space. It is a time of confidentiality and curiosity and free from judgement. There will be time for conversation and for questions from the group about the types. The Narrative Enneagram panels make the Enneagram come to life. You will gain deeper insight into others that you can ever get from reading a book or a website. Hope you can join us!
