The Enlightening Enneagram will change your life.

The Enneagram is commonly known as a system of nine personality types, with descriptions of the character strengths and weaknesses of each type. The distinguishing qualities of each type are universal regardless of gender, race or culture.

In this Enlightening Enneagram workshop you will gain deep insight into characteristics of the nine personality types and how they shape your life and the lives of others. This map of the human psyche will help you discover how to have better relationships with others, yourself and life as a whole.  While enlightening you to your true spiritual nature.

When first learning about the types it is common to find a little of yourself in all nine descriptions of the types, although one eventually stands out as the way you habitually get in your own way. Essential Wholeness differs from other Enneagram systems, because first and foremost it recognises the Enneagram is a map of all the qualities that define being a whole human (which is why we can see yourself in all of the types. Possibly even more importantly in this new paradigm the Enneagram describes the nine phases that all living systems (including humans) progress through as they evolve and grow. The numbers are not random, they have mathematical significance that relate to a phase of change that relates to particular human characteristics.

The Enlightening Enneagram of Essential Wholeness understands:

  • People are born with the tendency to become overly identified with one ninth of their

    Enlighten Yourself

    wholeness and one phase of the cycle of change.
  • People are spiritual beings having a human experience, we become stuck in vicious cycle of suffering when we lose touch with our spiritual essence.
  • This tendency greatly determines the ways in which people learn to adapt to the challenges of life.
  • Throughout childhood these patterns tend to become more or less rigid depending on free and enlightened or rigid and ignorant the one’s family system and culture are.
  • No type is better or worse than another, although different cultures may value one type over another.
  • Each type has a range of healthy and unhealthy potentials – unique capabilities, talents and potentials along with self-defeating tendencies, ego defences, limitations and challenges.
