Deeper Into the Enneagram:
Uncovering Motivations, Strengths and Challenges
Learning your Enneagram type launches you on an incredible journey of self-discovery. Not only do you develop insight as to the ways you habitually think, feel and behave, you also come to understand your motivations, strengths and challenges in relating to others.
In this workshop, you will explore nuances of your personality type as a means to expand the ways in which you live in the world. We will discuss:
- What is meant by Enneagram "wing," and how it impacts your personality.
- How your personality "changes" when you are stressed out, giving you a road map of how to deal with it.
- How your personality "changes," also, when you are doing really well.
- Learn the higher attributes of each type.
- Start to discover how to use your 'negative' patterns to fuel growth.
- Learn to improve relationships of all kinds, by:
- seeing yourself through the eyes of others
- understanding the different points of view of each type
- realizing how you react to different types
Understanding underlying motivations for your behaviors, and those for your family, friends and coworkers, will allow you to gain insights needed to improve relationships and to feel a deeper connection to yourself, others and life. This workshop will open doors for understanding and growth to help you gain these insights.
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.

"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."
"I realize that everyone has different ways of reacting to situations. I used to find myself asking why people acted a certain way and why they didn’t think like me, but it is because not everyone thinks like me and that is okay. I really think this self-awareness is what I have been searching for for SO long and is what I really needed to truly grow. It has opened up a whole new world to me."
"I not only grew and learned more about myself, but I also learned so much more about interacting with other people. I learned facts (that I actually can re-member on cue), but most of all, I learned how to better interact with the world around me."
"I learned that there are so many different ways that people think and see the world/others. Understanding where others are coming from by knowing their type is so helpful both in counseling and everyday relationships. Learning about this has helped me relate to others better and have greater patience."
