The Enneagram model is used in personal and spiritual growth worldwide. It provides a framework for self-awareness around how we interpret and act with others. It helps us understand personality styles and drivers of ourselves and others. It is often used in business as a stress management and team-building tool and is increasingly offered in medical and counseling situations as an aid for personal growth and mindfulness. This participatory class provides participants with an enjoyable introduction to the model. Class members will leave with an understanding of how to work with their own style and how it matches those around them.
