From Pattern to Possibility: An Enneagram Retreat

In the course of life, patterns of personality are useful in discovering who we are and how to relate to others. However, over time our egos develop habitual ways of acting, feeling, and thinking which limit our ability to respond with interior freedom to life and to others. The nine Enneagram type structures reveal the underlying motivations and patterns of each type. 


The Enneagram also points to possibility -- ways God’s Spirit invites us to open our hearts and minds in curiosity and adventure to go beyond familiar patterns. In the words of Enneagram teacher, Russ Hudson, “As we find the courage and love to follow the path where it leads, we begin to relax into a truly alive, Spirit-filled, dynamic journey of life.”


Join us for this interactive/reflective retreat to see how the Enneagram invites a courageous exploration into spiritual possibility and transformation. The retreat process will include time for personal reflection, small group sharing and experiential work with the Enneagram symbol. All are welcome.
