The Enneagram: Know Your Number | Sept. 26-29
Many people are seeking a new sense of wholeness and understanding of self. The Enneagram, an ancient personality typing system that identifies nine types of people and how they relate to one another, offers a way to understand this dimension of the spiritual journey and integrate it into a wider perspective. It is also a powerful tool for explaining why persons behave the way they do, and why motivation is largely determined by personality.
Suzanne Stabile introduces the nine types through the examination of each type individually and in relation to others. The types, which include the Perfectionist, Giver, Performer, Romantic, Observer, Devil’s Advocate, Epicure, Boss, and Mediator, are each characterized by unique strengths and weaknesses. These nine patterns show us how we are all equally strong and weak; valuable to our selves, others, and the larger community.
Suzanne Stabile, an internationally renowned teacher and director of retreats, offers a unique and creative approach to the practice of Spiritual Formation. A master of the Enneagram, Suzanne draws upon her educational background at Southern Methodist University and her life skills learned as a mother of four, a social worker, and a minister’s spouse. She and her husband, Joseph, are the founders of Life in the Trinity Ministry in Dallas. http://lifeinthetrinityministry.com/
