Quarterly Enneagram Community Online
The Contemplative Enneagram in Times of Stress
In challenging times, such as our recent pandemic, we are given the opportunity to ask and reflect:
How am I coping? What am I learning about myself and others? What does the Spirit offer during “such a time as this”?
During these quarterly gatherings, we will use the spiritual tool of the Enneagram as we look at our individual personality styles and listen together to the Holy One for comfort, wisdom, insight, and resourceful responses to life’s challenges.

Carlyn KnightCertified Enneagram Teacher
Carlyn Knight is a Certified Teacher in the Enneagram Spectrum Method, having completed training with Dr. Jerome Wagner. She has taken numerous classes on the Enneagram including many through the International Enneagram Association, the Journey Center, and Suzanne Stabile.
Carlyn has a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development and a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education. When she began learning about the Enneagram, she was also a Co-Director at Presbyterian Preschool and was teaching Early Childhood Education at Sonoma State University. She draws on these experiences with young children and families in her work and reflection on the Enneagram.
We all have ways/habits of seeing and perceiving the world that then impact our responses and reactions in life.It is essential for all of us, young and old, to experience:
• Knowledge that we count and are connected to others
• Growth in our capabilities (this occurs with training and the help of good tools)
• Courage (to try new things, learn, and even fail)
With the above essentials, “transformation” and maturation happens. In the presence of the Spirit, we can know and experience that we do count, and we are connected (to the Spirit, to others, and ourselves). With good tools (the Enneagram, being one), and safe community we can grow in our capabilities and courage.
It is a joy for Carlyn to teach classes and provide coaching about the Enneagram, with the purpose of growing in relationship and love with the Holy One, others, and ourselves.
