On his famous journey home from the long war, the Greek hero Odysseus encounters each of the nine Enneagram types in their number order. How can this be? The Enneagram is rooted in the soul’s journey, which is the spellbinding tale told in The Odyssey. Each of the nine types is a stop along the way.

Regardless of how you work with the Enneagram, these myths and archetypes will inform and enrich your understanding. They raise profound questions about each type’s quest, and suggest how you can draw upon each style’s special powers and insights. No prior knowledge of The Odyssey is required. This workshop is based on Michael’s book, Travels with Odysseus.

He is an attorney and has taught at graduate schools of management, psychology and law. His Enneagram clients include the CIA, Motorola, Honeywell, Wells Fargo, Philips Electronics (France), and TH Technology (China).
