Enneagram Introduction – Opening Your Heart (In Person)


Thursday 01/12/2023
6:00pm - 8:00pm EST

Join the Dominican Center community and Dr. Patrick Bishop for an Enneagram Introduction on Thursday, January 12, 2023.

The ancient symbol of the Enneagram has become one of today's most popular systems for self- understanding as well as self acceptance based on nine distinct personality types. It has a solid foundation in modern day psychology as well as roots dating back more than 2000 years. Do you find yourself needing a spiritual jump start, or sensing a need for a personal wake-up call that can usher in new awareness for a new year and deepened spirituality?

Enneagram Introduction: Opening your heart

This Introduction to the Enneagram will include discussion about the unique framework and core components of the Enneagram’s nine types. Particularly how personality manifests itself as egoic compulsions of the heart, mind and behavior patterns. The wisdom and insight that arise through the Enneagram can help transform and lead you to your best and truest self. And the opportunity to engage with others makes the Enneagram experience all the richer.
