What are the benefits of teaching children the Enneagram? At what age can they be accurately typed? The first part of this session will begin with a brief summary of these issues; the second will involve children ages 10-13 taking part in “Enneagram Improvisation,” enacting various scenarios in the character of Enneagram types different from their own. Between exercises the children will discuss their insights about the types, their perceptions of the Enneagram, and how the Enneagram can be used to enrich their lives. Imagine if you had knowledge of the
Enneagram to help you understand yourself as you were developing your identity, and to help weather the storms of adolescence!
