Embedding the Enneagram in Everyday Life
A two-part series concludes on March 15

Presented by Joyce Stenstrom

Part 1 – Tuesday February 16, 2016

In this presentation, we will explore a new way to tap into the wisdom of the Enneagram.  The starting point is to select a current “conundrum” from your life.  “New light” will be shed on your challenge using a tool called “The Riso Cards: and a technique which includes the Triadics of the Enneagram, the Law of Three, and the Riso/Hudson Levels of Development.

Part 2 – Tuesday March 15, 2016

In this presentation, we will go  “behind the scenes” to explore why the Riso Cards seem to work – that is, why this tool surfaces important and often surprising insights for both individuals and groups.  We will hear audios from individuals who have used the Cards for both personal inquiry and for clients.  It will also be shown how the Cards are being used within a large organization to navigate a significant change in their operations.

Carondelet Center, University of St Catherine – Room 101        6:30 to 9 p.m.  (Program is 7-9)

Joyce Stenstrom worked for several years with DonRiso in the formation of the Nine Domains Group.  She is currently archiving Don’s working papers which span a period of four decades of his inquiry into the nature of human personality via the Enneagram.

Library materials may be returned to the discussion facilitators at either group.****************************************Library AnnouncementThe Library is concerned about missing material.  At present, 10 books and 35 CD’s have yet to be returned from the last two years.  In an effort to maintain our library while being user friendly, we are initiating a reminder system by sending an email when an item is overdue.  In recognition that life happens, you will have some time to return the borrowed material.  If overdue material is not returned by June 1, we will invoice the borrower for the valued amount so we can purchase another copy.  Hopefully, this rarely will happen.  Along with our individual development, we know our members recognize the value of our journey as a community.****************************************OTHER LOCAL EVENTS*  April 3:   Enneagram Introduction
