Weekend Intensive: April 28 - 30 2022 (12-16 hours) - In-person workshops pending COVID status location TBD

Pre-requisites: Each participant must have a working knowledge of the Enneagram.

This program provides a specialized focus on a specific Enneagram approach or application.

Participants will:

  • dive deep into the exploration of "othering" and self-identification as it pertains to the different dimensions of diversity within our Humanity Mosaic
  • understand the intention versus the impact of language
  • explore unconscious bias through 9 different lenses
  • examine how our fixation and passion of Enneagram type stops us from being active as a cultural ally
  • work with the Enneagram Lines and Arrows to help unlock some of the inherent fear across differences
  • learn how to advocate for all of humanity by using the Enneagram as a cornerstone of IDEA (inclusion, diversity, equity, anti-racism) tools to help create social equity and eliminate institutional bias

This program provides a certificate. The weekend intensive is designed for students to translate their learning into action. Students will demonstrate their capacity to apply the language, tools, and skills learned.

Dr. Egerton has delivered this program in organizations to assist HR and OD professionals in maintaining their Diversity and Cultural Councils and employee engagement initiatives for over 10 years. In light of recent events in the U.S. and global protests, now Dr. Egerton is offering it to Enneagram Practitioners outside of organizations to assist them in being able to utilize the Enneagram as a tool for social justice.

Interactive Components:

Students will participate in group settings, partnerships, home groups, type groups, breakout rooms, and various teaching methods. An online community will be available for students to connect outside of the class and complete homework assignments, share stories and experiences, and continue the process of exploring our unconscious bias through 9 different lenses.
