EI Authorized Workshops JPEG2013 The Enneagram and Relationships Workshop Intimate and Professional Relationships are one of the most rewarding—as well as the most frustrating aspects of our existence. Whether in intimate or work settings, the quality of our relationships has enormous impact on the quality of our lives, our self-esteem, and on our careers. Yet, we often find the behavior of others baffling—even if we have known them intimately for many years. Often, the very things that we do not understand in others are the greatest sources of problems and conflicts in our relationships. Clearly, the better we know ourselves and the people in our lives, the more harmonious and satisfying our relationships will be.

The Enneagram can help us tremendously in understanding our relationships. It is a remarkable system of nine basic personality types that sheds light on the most important psychological dynamics in our personality, as well as on the deeper spiritual yearnings of our soul. Each type has its own set of strengths, vulnerabilities, and perceptions of the world. The Enneagram can help us to realize who we are and what our greatest potentials might be, as well as to make sense of the sometimes confusing behavior of others. Participants will be guided to use the Enneagram as a profound and immensely practical way to understand their relationships with others, both intimate and professional. Particular dynamics between the different types, effective methods for communicating with each type, and the ways in which the three Instinctual Variants (Subtypes) affect our main motivations in relationships will be covered.

The Insight Approach® will be used, employing interactive exercises, guided meditations, panels of exemplars, music, and other techniques to help participants recognize personal strengths as well as to uncover the blind spots that they bring to their relationships. If you want to improve your relationship with a spouse, child, friend, business associate, or family member, this Workshop will be invaluable. Everyone is welcome to attend that is interested in learning more about the Enneagram and its application to relationships. Prior knowledge of the Enneagram may be helpful but not required. To learn more prior to the workshop, review the Enneagram Institute website or read The Wisdom of the Enneagram by Don Riso and Russ Hudson, founders of the Enneagram Institute.
