Nine Faces of Contemplative Leadership: An Enneagram Retreat

Contemplative leadership invites us to creatively engage the tensions of living more consciously in the midst of active life and service. The nine points of the Enneagram can be seen as nine ways—faces—of showing up in the world, revealing underlying motivations and patterns. Through an exploration of the nine Enneagram type structures, we’ll look at habitual ways of acting, feeling, and thinking which limit our ability to respond with freedom to life and to others.

Join us for this interactive/reflective retreat to see how the Enneagram reveals a dynamic unfolding of mind, heart, and will to support the practice of contemplative leadership and service. A tool for psychological growth and spiritual transformation, the Enneagram reveals where one is invited to more fully live in the Spirit, deepening his or her reflective awareness and interior freedom. All are welcome to attend.
