In-Depth Introduction to Enneagram

The Enneagram is an ancient, extraordinarily accurate, model of human personality and spirit. Describing nine personality types and their interactions, it enables us to look deeply into our own character, harmonise our daily lives and our relationships, and understand our particular best path to growth.

            Expert Karen Webb will lead this in-depth introductory workshop. She writes: “Taught in the Narrative Tradition, participants will come away with a living experience, rather than simply a theoretical knowledge, of the ways in which different types of people view and interact with the world. I use video clips and, where possible, live panels of people of each type describing themselves, and discuss the day-to-day difficulties and celebrations of each type. I also use guided imaging and meditations to help give a deep experience of each, surprisingly different, focus of attention.”

During this introductory workshop you will:

  • Discover the chief emotional and mental concerns of each type
  • Learn some of the patterns of behaviour and interaction created by these often unconscious habits of perception
  • Recognise your own type and those of people you know
  • Understand how security as well as stress 'changes' your personality
  • Learn to improve relationships of all kinds, by
  • seeing yourself through the eyes of others
  • understanding the different points of view of each type
  • realising how you react to different types
  • Learn the higher attributes of each type
  • Start to discover how to use your 'negative' patterns to fuel growth.

Karen has taught the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition since 1991 and focuses on facilitating spiritual and psychological growth. She is a graduate of the Enneagram Professional Training Program with Helen Palmer. A lifelong student, formally and informally, of psychology and comparative religion, her work prior to this was in management consultancy, training and Human Resource Development (visit www.enneagram.co.uk for more information on Karen and her work).

Karen has become a regular course leader at Ammerdown where she is always well received: “Explained complex concepts clearly”; “Encouraged and inspired”; “Excellent at listening, responding, respecting each participant and enabling”.

Those wishing to go further in their study of the Enneagram might be interested in Karen’s follow-up course ‘Advanced Enneagram – Spiritual Gifts’ on 10 to 12 November. http://ammerdown.org/Advanced-Enneagram:-Spiritual-Gifts-2014
