The Enneagram is a powerful model and tool for learning about yourself and others so you can better understand how and why we each have different perspectives on our lives and the world. Knowing your place on the Enneagram does NOT confine you to a type or a label. It does not put you "in a box." Rather it frees you to go beyond your already self-imposed limits that occur when you are blocked by your own personality.
The Enneagram is a complex and nuanced system, not a parlor game. If you are willing to invest the time to observe and discover how and why you are the way you are, it will open a deeper understanding and compassion for yourself and others. Using it with good will can help improve friendships, marriages, and working relationships.
I have been studying the Enneagram through our local Enneagram Portland Community and the larger world of Enneagram education for many years, and I never learn enough. I am now certified to use it in my work as a spiritual director and mentor. As a dream worker, I am fascinated to see how it shows up in my dreams and those in my dream groups.
Several of us who are experienced with the Enneagram are exploring how our individual type influences how we approach aging. If you are interested in discovering your Enneagram type and how you are influenced by other types, I am happy to work with you. We can work one on one or in a group.
