November already, can you believe it? I hope you could join us this past month for the Enneagram of Career with Jan Shegda in Boulder, or the Enneagram as Somatic Experience with Margot Burns in Englewood. Here is what is coming up from IEA Colorado:
IEA Colorado Winter Workshop- Experiencing The Enneagram
Saturday January 14th, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
The Refuge, 6900 W. 117th Avenue, #200, Broomfield CO
Please join us for a day long workshop using panels of the nine Enneagram types being interviewed to teach and inform those new to the Enneagram as well as veteran Enneagram users.
The panel system provides the opportunity to learn about each type by listening to and observing how each type responds to various questions about their personal experience with their type and with the Enneagram.
It will be a fascinating experience for all!
Non Members: $50
Join as a member and get the workshop: $50 (plus discounted entrance to future workshops)

New Permanent Location
Alfalfa’s Market, 1651 Broadway, Boulder CO
We will be meeting in a NEW space in the community room to the back of Alfalfa’s Market in Boulder at Arapahoe and Broadway. Alfalfa’s would like us to park in the Boulder Public Library parking lot or along the streets as they need to reserve their parking lot for shoppers at the market. Please honor their request since they provide this fabulous space for free. The library closes at 8:00pm so there is no fee for parking there. You do need to put the ticket in your window from the ticket station but there is no charge for the hour before it closes. There is side street parking close by, as well.
The entrance to the meeting room is off the south end of the parking lot towards the back of the store. There will be a sign on the door to let you know you are at the right place.

Wednesday, November 2nd 6:30-8:30 p.m. Englewood Library Anderson Room
Presenter: Sandra Walston
Topic: Childhood Energy of Each Enneastyle (Special Encore Presentation)
Description Sandra will lead the group through meditations for each of the childhood Enneagram types. This experience will expose how our childhood story continues to linger (whether consciously or unconsciously) in our personal and professional lives and more importantly, our spirit. The depletion of spirit hinders us from our true Selves. Through reflection and shared perspectives, this seminar will provide new insight to understand a child, parent or partner at a deeper level.
Bio Sandra Walston is a certified coach, certified in both the Enneagram and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and she enjoys merging both insights together. For many years, she has taught the Enneagram at the University of Denver and she has helped several organizations frame their leadership foundation around the Enneagram. Sandra is known as The Courage Expert where she is a global leader and an internationally published author and speaker. The Enneagram changed her life! www.sandrawalston.com

Wednesday January 18th 6:30-8:30 p.m. Capital Tea, 1450 S. Broadway, Denver CO 80210
Presenter: Shani Jones
Topic: Naming and Claiming the Gifts of Your Enneagram Type
While our core Enneagram type shares commonality with all others of the same type, when we consider our broader type including strongest head, heart and body centers, our individual style and gifts emerge with more clarity.
We’ll look at one way to represent your more personalized Enneagram style using a word cloud of descriptors representing your strengths.You will leave with a tool for naming and claiming these traits with intention– helping you bring the best You to each situation both personally and professionally.
If you can, come prepared with your core type and the strongest number you have in each of the other centers. Eg. 2 is my heart center and core type, 1 is my next highest number and is body center, 5 is my next highest number and is a head center. My complete type, then, is 215.
While there is no specific test for “complete type” this test will give you the information you need to discover that more accurately. If you are going to take the test, you can access the link at:
There is a $10 fee to access the link and that is paid directly to the assessment center, it is not a fee of the ILC. The self-assessment takes about an hour to complete, and the results will be emailed to you immediately. If you email me a copy of your results ahead of time it will help me to tailor the information for the members of our group and I would appreciate having that–however, that is not required! In any case, please bring the results with you. We will unpack the Enneagram types in a way that will allow you to resonate with certain types and to self-type yourself in class. However, the pre-assessment has much more detailed information which you may find helpful in this level II class, even if you opted not to take it for your introductory Enneagram class. The pre-assessment is not a requirement, simply an invitation.
