We are created by God as relational beings. Indeed our relationships have an enormous impact on how we experience ourselves, our lives, and the world around us. That doesn’t mean creating and sustaining meaningful relationships is a simple matter. They take time, practice, and sometimes just downright hard work to keep them alive and healthy. But the more we understand ourselves and others with compassion, the more life-giving and satisfying our relationships will be.
The Enneagram is a rich and dynamic tool for deepening such understanding and compassion. A centuries-old and now widely used system of self-understanding based on nine distinct but interrelated personality types, the Enneagram can provide a sort of map and resources for the ongoing work of tending our relationships. It can show us why we behave the ways we do when we relate to others, highlighting both the gifts and challenges we bring to our relationships. It can also reveal the significant differences between us, that may often lead to conflict, but can also be a source of great strength and creativity.
In this workshops, couples will:
· Receive an overview of the Enneagram system
· Deepen their understanding of themselves and each other
· Examine patterns of communication and conflict based on personality types
· Practice active listening and mirroring
· Learn ways to foster personal and relational growth
· Renew their commitment to one another
The cost of $100 covers workshop facilitation and materials, lunch and refreshments for two.

Participants must know their Enneagram types prior to the workshop; if you do not already know your type, you can schedule an individual ($50) or couple ($80) typing session with Kimberly.
