See others more clearly and distinctly - 3CE

Introduction to the Wisdom of the Enneagram

See others more clearly and distinctly. Recognize patterns in how others interpret the world around them and how they manage themselves. The Enneagram is a comprehensive personality typing system that reaches far beyond the bounds of personality.
“I had heard of the Enneagram for years, so I was excited to take this class. This instructor was so well versed in this topic, it was a treat to learn from her.”

Cultivate a deeper and more compassionate understanding

Expand Your Perspective of Others You Encounter in Life

The Enneagram is a multidimensional, psycho-spiritual instrument; non-secular in nature, composed of universal principles allowing for its applicability to all traditions. Often described as a personality-typing tool, the Enneagram has been in use for thousands of years and has served as a valuable resource for large organizations such as the CIA and the Vatican. Learning about the Enneagram will deepen mental health practitioners’ understanding of the people they care for. Participants will gain valuable understanding of how this knowledge impacts and can be applied to their work with their clients, as well as to their personal and professional relationships, and how to integrate the newly acquired insights for optimal growth.
