“Enneagram & Spirit”

Stacks Image 52049
Thursday, May 18, 2017
7:00 pm
Facilitated by: Jim Ware

From one point of view, the Enneagram can be seen as a set of nine distinct personality types, with each number on the Enneagram denoting one type. It is common to find a little of yourself in all nine of the types, although one of them should stand out as being closest to yourself. This is your basic personality type.

The class will open with a short review of the Enneagram.  Then, we’ll use the Enneagram in class to discover how to best stay “above the 5” on the Spiritual Thermometer.  For those of you who are new to the Enneagram, you can go online for free and take a short assessment to see what your type may be at the website:

A free-will offering will be taken.  For more information on this class, please call 847-297-0997.
