The 9 Personality Types:
An Introduction to the Enneagram
Join us for this rich and interactive beginner workshop to discover the power of the enneagram. In this 6-hour workshop, you will take a tour of the nine personality types and learn how to use this insightful information to increase your self-awareness and improve relationships with others. Plus you will:
- Become acquainted with the thoughts, feelings, preoccupations and reactions associated with your personality type.
- Gain insight into the primary communication strategies and styles of each type and how these styles impact others.
- Discover how to leverage the three Enneagram centers — Head, Heart and Body – to move beyond limiting beliefs and reactions.
The workshop is held in a comfortable Gainesville home in SW Gainesville (near NW 13th St and NW 16th Ave) where you can relax and take in all that the workshop has to offer. The workshop will start promptly at 9 a.m. Please come early, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, and get settled.
There will be a half hour break for lunch. Feel free to bring your lunch and stretch out in the hammock, on the patio, or in the living room. The workshop will end at 3:30 p.m.

"Oh gosh, where to begin?! The workshops really transformed the way I relate to people by understanding people who are different from me. It helped me become less judgmental towards myself and practice more regular self-care, which has improved my mental and emotional health tremendously. It’s a great tool to use when getting to know a patient and to understand their motivations for doing/not doing things."
"I learned how my thought process works and how it can work as a road block at times. I can now catch myself doing “6ish” things that are not helping or are worsening a situation. Discovering that I am a 6 has also helped me feel less out of place. Before, I used to believe I was weird or wrong because of the way I think and process situations. Learning about this has also helped me understand how oth-ers think, act, and express themselves. I never realized how different people might process situations or react to events."
"I honestly thought everyone had the same characteristic/qualities as me and would get so frustrated when things I would do for people wouldn’t be reciprocated. Its awesome to learn how different people really are. I’m a lot more accepting of people for who they are."
"What we learned in the weekend workshop is so valuable in helping the therapist understand the client’s tendencies and thought patterns."
"I have a learned more about the way I think and act, which has decreased the amount of judgment/criticism for who I am. I am now able to better connect with people and understand them by using the enneagram as a guide."
