What is the Enneagram?
The Enneagram is an ancient map serving as a tool of expansion and consciousness. It applies wisdom and principles that evoke understanding the innermost workings of the mind, based on early relationships within families. According to the Enneagram, human habits and perceptions can be divided into nine distinct personality types offering a framework to explore the habitual lens through which we view the world.
The course is interactive and experiential. You will discover where you are on this evolutionary scale of development. It will assist you to be less judgmental, get insights and be less limited to your style of thinking. Not only will you be able to trust yourself more, but also be willing to take the leap into the unknown.
The Light of the Enneagram is fundamental in obtaining greater flexibility in your communication. It fosters the design of life changes that will bring alignment and transformation to restrictive patterns.

The program curriculum is divided into 4 levels:
Level 1: Understanding How The Enneagram Works
You will learn about the nine Enneagram patterns and how they tie into a Solution-Focused approach. You will discuss, explore and find out how the various facets relate to each other. You will also have the opportunity to experientially connect to each type. This will allow you to gauge in playful ways which pattern resonates most with you, and you experience the most affinity.
Level 2: Discovering The Treasures of The Enneagram
After landing on your type, you will add distinctions on how to work with it, and how others best relate to your facet. In this process, you will have a chance to work with some deeply transformational exercises and explore what stabilizes and supports you in personal growth.
Level 3: Mastering Your Internal Dialogue
The teachings of the Enneagram can offer access to explore our inner critic or dialogue that prevents Solution-Focused exploration of who we are. You will have an opportunity to identify what internal dialogue you habitually run. This will be helpful in formulating transformational questions fostering a new understanding of how wholeness can be experienced beyond the inner messages.
Level 4: Our Evolutionary Purpose
The culmination of this course will be for you to connect with the highest energy and wisdom behind each pattern. Grounded in greater self-acceptance and with the awareness of each pattern, you will then be able to help transform the lives of others. This includes bringing a greater capacity of trust in yourself and change the dynamic of relationships and conversations.
