Ancient symbol. Modern psychology. 

What is the Enneagram?

We often see ourselves very differently from how others see us. As human beings our capacity to experience ourselves as others do is quite limited. We do not all think alike. We do not all share the same background, look alike, or behave in the same way, therefore, we have very different perspectives.  However, at the core of each individual is a drive, an impulse, a deep inner motivation that can be identified by observing our own behaviors, without judgement or shame.  

The Enneagram is an ancient archetypal personality system that combines modern psychological practices with a deep foundation in ancient traditions, religions, cultures and spiritual practices. It is inclusive and embraces and connects people across the many aspects of our humanity that commonly used to define and divide ourselves. The Enneagram creates a cognitive shift into mindfulness at an individual and team level and uncovers the focus and patterns of behavior that subconsciously drive and motivate us to act in certain ways. In making these patterns and motivations conscious, the individual is able to develop and transcend what once was a challenge and create positive deep and sustainable change in themselves and in their environment. Options and answers appear that we did not know were possible. These specifically tailored  sessions are designed to create an experience that will change each individual’s journey and create sustainable growth a development practices. We will create a network of positive intentional interaction that moves away from fear and grounds us and connects us as one race, the human race.
