Level 1 -Introduction to the Enneagram Subtypes
June 29 (Sunday) or September 7 (Sunday) or November 8 (Saturday) All three classes are 1-5pm in room S-301
The Enneagram is a personality system that teaches emotional and spiritual intelligence, and helps us expand our relationship skills. It describes specifically how we unknowingly separate from God, ourselves, and others. This system helps us discover the nine different ways each personality style behaves, feels, and thinks. This class is for those new to the Enneagram and those who want to learn practical Enneagram applications for daily life. Learn the characteristics, communication tips, speaking style, body language, and anger triggers for the nine personalities. Enjoy lively interactive exercises, and discover the “catch-22” for the each type.
Level 2 – Enneagram Subtypes
July 27 (Sunday, 1-5pm in room J-203) or October 4 (Saturday, 1-5 pm in room S-301)
There are three variations in each Enneagram type. So there are three kinds of Ones, three kinds of Twos, etc. Come see which Three looks like a One, which Two does not look like a Two, and how others with your same type are different from you. Subtype differences in couples can be a bigger source of conflict than the differences between Enneagram types.
2013 Helen Palmer Video on Enneagram Transformation
August 19, 20, 21 (Tuesday-Thursday, 6:30-9pm in room J-203)

This class is for those who have been working with their Enneagram style and want to do more serious Enneagram work. The videos are fascinating, touching, and insightful.
