Enneagram Type Exploration Lab

"There's a part of every living thing that wants to become itself...that is spirituality."  - Ellen Bass, poet

"O Lord, you have probed me, you know me...

with all my ways you are familiar."  Psalm 139 1,3b

Curious about your Enneagram type? Confused about the results of the Enneagram assessment you’ve taken?

This type exploration “lab” will provide assistance in interpreting Enneagram test results and exploring type-related questions. We’ll use a step-by-step process and the Enneagram symbol to look at enneagram type patterns and common misidentifications. We’ll give you tools for honing your self-observation and “experiments” to try in your real-life laboratory.


Join us for this opportunity to work with the Enneagram in a reflective, supportive—and playful!—environment
