      The Enneagram: A Powerful Tool for Growth 5-Week Class

      Personality is wired into the nervous system as a childhood survival strategy, yet in adulthood it limits us by creating barriers to growth. The Enneagram is a powerful tool combining psychology, spirituality, and somatics to help us recognize automatic and habitual patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting. Most importantly, it provides skills and methods for a) expanding awareness; b) working with the reactivity of our type structure; c) engaging a conversion from vice to virtue; and d) increasing our capacity to be receptive to change, growth, and grace. Join us to better understand and have compassion for ourselves and others in learning more in-depth about our biases of attention, self-identities, worldviews, triggers, defense mechanisms, blind spots, and intuitive gifts. This class is open to all. Cost is $145.00 per person, $155.00 for CE credits.  PLEASE NOTE: This class will be meeting FIVE times, and will NOT meet on Thursday April 18th. 10 CEs are offered for LSWs, LCSWs, LPCs, LMFTs.
