Experiential Enneagram & Levels of Consciousness (In-Person)


Sunday 04/07/2024 - Sunday 04/14/2024
12:00pm - 4:00pm EST

Join Dr. Patrick Bishop and Sr. Ann Walters, OP, for two sessions of experiential exploration into some of the most powerful and interconnected frameworks for psychological-spiritual growth.

The first session will begin with a light lunch and community discussion around the three centers of the Enneagram (gut, heart, head). Lunch will be followed by a brief refresher of core Enneagram concepts. In the remaining hours, Bishop will lead participants through experiential activities to tease out mental, emotional, and-or behavioral responses for each of the nine types.

The second session also begins with light lunch and community discussion. Afterwards, Bishop will use a variety of instructional methods and experiential activities to guide participants through an exploration of lived perceptions as they relate various levels of consciousness. The session concludes with community discussion on practical applications for integrating healthy levels of the Enneagram with growing levels of consciousness.  https://www.9types.com/rheti/index.php

For the carnal mind is against, not subject to divine law, nor can it be. ~Romans 8:6-7
