January Workshop...

Foundations of the Enneagram Personality Types
with Carole Whittaker, PhD

This class provides a thorough groundwork for understanding and utilizing the Enneagram Personality system. Ennea is Greek for "9" and the Enneagram describes nine personality types; how we develop ingrained patterns of behavior from the standpoint of where our attention goes and what drives our thoughts, actions and feelings. It is the "why" behind the "what" of our behavior. It reveals the blind spots we often project on other people and works with identifying our habit of emotion(passion), our habit of attention(mental fixation), avoidances, characteristics and defense mechanisms that hold the type in place.

We examine the relationship between the personality self and the inner/core self with its permanent essential qualities of the life force(the Virtues) and of being itself(the Holy Ideas). It also provides and overview/introduction of the paths and practices that lead toward integration.

Methods include teaching, exercises and brief panel interviews with class participants.  The Essential Enneagram by Dr. David Daniels is used to assist participants to identify their own Enneagram personality type. This basic course is highly recommended as preparation for all of the continuing Enneagram programs. The class is taught in a one day format.
