Personality & Growth: Enneagram workshop day (Mark Scandrette Nine Beats Collective)
10AM – 4PM Saturday September 28th 2019
Oasis Waterloo, 1 Kennington Road, London SE1 7QP
A day hosted by Mark Scandrette ( 0f NINE BEATS COLLECTIVE) exploring personality and growth, using the Enneagram as a tool for personal transformation.
In recent years the Enneagram – which has connections to the work of the Desert Fathers and Mothers of the 4th and 5th centuries – has become a popular tool for self discovery and growth.
In this practical and interactive workshop day we will:
1. Use the vocabulary of the Enneagram to help us explore our core motivations, scripts, and fears
2. Reflect on how the teaching of Jesus might speak life to each personality type, particularly focusing on the nine invitations of the beatitudes
3. Consider the kinds of spiritual disciplines that are most helpful to particular personality types
4. Explore how an understanding of personality can improve personal relationships and public communication
You don’t need any prior experience of the Enneagram to participate. But if you are curious about identifying your type, you can take Enneagram Rheti test for a small fee here: https://tests.enneagraminstitute.com/test/1/code
We’ll provide drinks and snacks through the day, please bring your own lunch.
