January 11 - January 12
St. John’s will host a two day Enneagram conference January 11th-12th. The event will begin Friday night and run all day Saturday. Lunch will be provided.
The Enneagram is an ancient spiritual tool that identifies nine different ways of seeing the world. The Enneagram not only offers opportunities for increased self-awareness, it is a helpful tool for compassion towards others and towards ourselves. This workshop will briefly cover each of the nine types before delving into material for deeper growth in Enneagram work. We will focus on “Stances” in the Enneagram.Each Enneagram type belongs to one of three stances, and stances are organized around the theory that there are three main centers of intelligence—thinking, feeling, and doing. While we all possess and use each of these modes of intelligence, we rely on one more than the others and tend to ignore or underutilize one more than the others. This imbalance shapes how we respond to those around us and to daily life. Becoming aware of this imbalance and practicing using the center of intelligence with which we are least comfortable is one of the richest areas for growth in Enneagram work. It can deepen and enrich our relationships, improve our work lives, and help with periods of feeling “stuck.”This workshop is designed to offer something of interest both for those new to the Enneagram and those with previous experience, but some prior familiarity with the Enneagram is recommended.
