The Nine Types of Men in Literature, Film and Community Experience how all types of men show us how we can be our best man and more fully hu-man.
Each type’s focus and dynamics may provide wisdom on what supports or thwarts our own development as men.
We may find benefit in being in right measure with our own way and the ways of other healthy men,
and then find our way closer to Being Our Best Man
Deep learning and change happens over time and in continuous community.
Discover the universal themes accessible and applicable to us all on the journey of being men.
Expand your community of friends who talk type, character development, arts, literature, men and modern masculinity.
This is a course on The Humanities and Being a Man, using the Nine Types as its foundation and direction. The Enneagram is a map to universal inner and outer territories. While we often gravitate to certain regions, we visit them all daily throughout our lives. Join this program to find and experience where the map is leading you; all through an exploration of amazing characters and meaningful themes in great film and literature.
These are small group explorations (10 people, 10 times) on themes found amongst the Nine Types, using specific literature and film to enhance our understanding of ourselves and others as men. The book or movie may offer a character who generally exemplifies an Enneagram Type, or it may explore themes that relate to an Enneagram Type's area of attention, motivations and life themes, vice to virtue conversion, or paths to disintegration and development. Because we have all points of view available to us, most participants each month have found something relevant, moving and meaningful to address in their own lives. The map of the Enneagram and good art provide the entry to examining deeper issues and themes. Of special interest to this group will be discussions on how our type may help or hinder being our best man, and if other ways of being may be accessible to us more easily as we grow and change.
