The Enneagram is an effective guide to psychological and spiritual growth and I have found it invaluable in my work.
The Cambridge Enneagram Group has been running since 2002.
We meet on the second Monday of each month and welcome newcomers.
Monday 9 April 2018 7.30pm - 9.30pm
The Arrows on the Enneagram
What happens when we are in stress?
What can we do to get to our place of healthy development?
Discover how people of different Enneagram tendencies act
All of us, whatever our Enneatype know that we can seem like different people at different times of our life or even over the course of a single day. Our moods can change, and with them our thoughts, feelings and behaviour depending on circumstances, people we come into contact with, things that are said or done.
Through the lines, or arrows, connecting each Enneatype to others, the Enneagram model gives us a map for identifying this movement and for strategies we can take for choosing to react differently, and in a way which we find more empowering and fulfilling.
The fee of £15 includes handouts and refreshments.
If possible, but not essential, please let me know if you plan to join us. It will be great if you can and you’ll be happy you did.
See you Monday 9 April.
An example of a person in stress and in growth
The Perfectionist Enneatype 1
The Perfectionist has an over riding need to get things right, to do the right thing, and to get everyone else to do it. I am of this Enneatype myself and I often refer to us as the "right-ists".
At our worst we can be a real pain both to ourselves and others in our striving to get things totally perfect - an impossible dream.
At our best we can see that the imperfect is an integral part of the beauty of all that is, and enjoy life just as it is.
When we follow the arrow to the Four, the Tragic Romantic, we can
- negatively get terribly depressed believing that no one understands us and there's no hope for any of us
- or more positively become more creative and in touch with deeper feelings
When we follow the arrow to the Seven, the Fun Lover, we can
- negatively, begin to self destruct through excess
- or positively, chill out, become more spontaneous, and do things just because they're fun
Each of us, whatever our Enneatype, know that we can seem like different people at different times of our life or even over the course of a single day. Our moods can change, and with them our thoughts, feelings and behaviour depending on circumstances, people we meet, things that are said or done.
Through the lines connecting each Enneatype to others, the Enneagram model gives us
· an incredibly accurate map for identifying the movement between stress and security
· strategies we can take for choosing to react differently
· options for more empowering and fulfilling ways of living
The workshop is held at 14 Trinity Close, Haslingfield, Cambridge, CB23 1LS, and the fee of £15 includes handouts and refreshments.
