The first step on your self-development journey using the Enneagram is to discover your dominant type. While we can have characteristics of several different types, we only have one type that we identify the most with.

Once you discern your dominant type, you can begin using the Enneagram as a map. It uses wings and arrows to guide you in your growth. It shows you what you most need to pay attention to if you really want to grow as a person.

In this two-hour workshop, learn how to use the Enneagram as a map and a guide to growing out of your personality box. We’ll explore the wings, arrows, passions and virtues, and the role of self-observation in personal growth work.

If we stay fixated on our type and remain in our personality, we'll never grow into the people we were born to be. We’ll never rise above our ego and become our Big Self.
