About The Presentation
The Enneagram is a rich, multi-layered system that helps us understand who we are and how we live in the world. It uncovers our deepest motivations and shines a light on patterns of behavior we may not have noticed before. With amazing clarity the Enneagram can reveal our inner life and lead us to spiritual growth, wholeness and authentic living. For the last 25 years of my ordained ministry, I found that knowledge of the Enneagram helped me grow in compassion for myself and others. It became an essential tool in my spiritual toolbox in offering insight and practices to help us break free from unhealthy patterns and make room for a more aware, creative, and integrated self to emerge. In my presentation I will offer a very brief overview of the Enneagram and share stories of how working in a spiritual context with this tool can lead to transformation in self -understanding and increased respect for the sacredness of all people.
