In this seminar participants will pursue the Enneagram Code, in a journey worthy of a Dan Brown novel. We will dissect the modern Enneagram into its components and trace the origin and development of each part of the theory. Sufis, medieval philosophers, modern cosmologists, psychics, mystics, psychologists, and psychiatrists have each made contributions. We will explore those ideas and their significance in this integrated system of human understanding.

Small group discussions will allow participants to evaluate the guidelines of the Enneagram theory against their own life experience. Each person will need to think outside the Enneagram Code, if he/she wants to decipher it.

Come to this session prepared to be surprised.
