In Kathryn’s own words, here is a description of what we will experience as we take a fresh look at the Enneagram:
I have chosen 8 ½ topics for our discussion. Attendees should be familiar and comfortable with Enneagram knowledge and tradition. These workshops will have a different format and emphasis – something I have wanted to pursue for quite some time – and Joanna and the Journey Center have offered their platform – Thanks!!
A little about my journey and what’s next. I first encountered the Enneagram in 1994. I was astonished at the accuracy and wealth of self-knowledge available with this tool – or map. I took my first Certification training with Jerry Wagner in 1997. Since then, I have read, studied with many prominent authors and teachers, taught in many venues and a variety of topics, and now co-teach Jerry’s two-part certification. Recently I have noticed some areas where differing views or opinions are coming forward. Many are helpful – many, not so much. It has long been my dream to bring these weird and often wonderful ideas forward to a group who would like to play with these ideas in a safe and friendly environment – and share their own ideas and understandings.
I invite you to join in with me on my dream journey to experience the wonder of “first time” learning combined with the wisdom of time and experience. I am hoping that these workshops will encourage curiosity. Will open us up to possibilities and potentials and thus add to our understandings.
A word about the title: I spent many hours and days with my granddaughter, Haylee as a little one. We would play together – dinosaurs, fish, eggs, clouds, etc. I gave great explanations for many phenomena. After finishing my learned lecture, she would look me in the eye and say, “And what else?” That is the curiosity and adventure I hope for us to experience – and what else?
Format? Didactic. Break outs – and then let the fun begin. Let’s have real conversation about these ideas and others. Let’s re-visit with new eyes. Another way to look. To bring new research to the table. Not to negate – but to add. To hear one another- we do not need to agree nor come to conclusion.
The Enneagram asks us questions: How has this piece of the Enneagram helped you? Changed you? Confused you? When do you identify with a concept? When do you argue? Where do these ideas live in you? Helpful? What is not helpful? How does this show up for you?
