Explore the ways that men develop character and values. Enjoy the freedom that comes with this study being shared just amongst other men.  Together we find how all types of men can teach us something about how to become a greater man, more fully human, more fully ourselves. 

​Each ennea-type’s focus and dynamics may provide insights on what supports or thwarts our own development as men.  We can find benefit not only in being in right measure with our own way but also in learning the ways of men who lead with other values, teaching us a broader version of how to be a more resourceful modern man today.

  • In integrity and good humor, like men who are 1 Idealists
  • Resourceful and humble, like men who are 2 Connectors
  • Effective with heart, like men who are 3 Performers
  • Authentic and sensitive with all, like men who are 4 Romantics
  • Wise in experience and accessible, like men who are 5 Observers
  • Consciously loyal and courageous, like men who are 6 Loyalists
  • Accepting, patient and expansive, like men who are 7 Epicures 
  • Vulnerable, strong and magnanimous, like men who are 8 Protectors 
  • Empathic, reflective and effective, like men who are 9 Mediators
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.

These are small group explorations (9 Men, 10 Times) on themes found amongst the Nine Types, using specific films to enhance our understanding of ourselves and others as men. The film 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 can help us gain deeper understanding of universal life themes and meaningful existence.  Of special interest to this group will be discussions on how our type may help or hinder being our best man, how did our environments engage with our styles, and how might other ways of being a man help us as we grow and change.

Men from all walks of life are found and welcomed here, and you will find a diversity of men's life experiences represented in the films as well.  Fathers, sons, brothers, partners, husbands, friends, mentors, sages, seniors, students; all are found and welcomed in our films and in our community... and some of the groups continue to meet together for another season or more.
