As a product of ancient spiritual and wisdom traditions, the Enneagram is an objective map of both the patterns associated with waking consciousness and shadow aspects that remain in our unconscious. By helping us see, own, and become aware of our blind spots and disowned feelings, the Enneagram supports us in becoming conscious of all that we are manifesting and of our highest potentials. 

This workshop offers an exploration of the nine Enneagram personality types by examining and shedding light on their shadows. The power of the Enneagram as a tool that furthers personal growth lies in its uniquely accurate descriptions of the defensive patterns, strengths, and blind spots of the nine personality styles. Each Enneagram personality has a characteristic focus of attention. But while each type has strengths and strong points, each type also has a shadow-areas of life, thoughts, and feelings remaining in the unconscious.

Learn about both the psychological make-up of the types and their specific paths of self-development through lecture, discussion, and panels featuring experienced self-observers who know their type and can speak to the process of discovering their blind spots.
