Engaging the Enneagram – offered at SDI 2018 Conference

Engaging the Enneagram
Not stopping at typology – going and growing beyond it
Thursday, April 26, 2018
9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

For many years the Canadian Jubilee spiritual direction training programs have utilized the transformative wisdom inherent in the Enneagram. We have learned that change is not possible if we only study the 9 Enneagram types as descriptions of our recurrent patterns in daily life. In spiritual direction we are interested in what is hidden within and beyond the patterns we develop.

Something beyond type, something archetypal and of quality and essence bearing the soul’s imprint, brings meaning to our terrestrial descent and our ensuing celestial ascent as sense-soul-spirit beings. The invitation is to open ourselves to an inner world that reveals the transcendent individuality of the human person as well as a cosmic, spiritual universe.

This day-long workshop, we will give our attention to what it means to move beyond type to archetype – the journey from our inner compulsions to spiritual freedom, for ourselves and those we companion. Through story, song, teachings and movement we will experience the invitations of the Enneagram, entering the realm of Spirit.
