Looking for a fresh way to explore what The Enneagram offers?

Discover universal themes accessible and applicable to us all on the human journey.

Get deeper understanding of the types and how you relate to their ways.

Expand your community of friends who talk type, character development, arts and literature.

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.

Now in its seventh year, Exploring the Nine Points of View in Literature, Film and Community delves into the themes described in the Nine Points of View, along with a novel or film each month. Along with one evening teaching session, these are small group explorations on the Nine Types in depth, using specific literature and film to enhance our understanding of ourselves and others. The book or movie may offer a character who generally exemplifies an Enneagram type's values, or it may explore themes that relate to an Enneagram type's area of attention, motivations and life themes, vice to virtue shifts, or paths to disintegration and development.  Because we have all points of view available to us, most participants each month find something relevant, moving and meaningful to examine in their own lives.

Deep learning and change happens over time in a continuous supportive learning community.  This is a tried and true community exploration on The Humanities, using the Enneagram as its foundation and direction. The map of the Enneagram and experience with The Arts can deepen our understanding of universal life themes and meaningful existence.

ALL TIME ZONES WELCOME! Join for this and all the other benefits of community membership.  Registration is online and closes when community fills or courses begin.   View the book and film selections for this year on EnneagramPortland.com
