Enneagram Discovery: Claim Your Deep Nature
Are you curious to learn more about your Enneagram type?
Would you like to understand the enneagram in more depth?
Are you ready to gain more insight into your deep nature?
The Enneagram is both a mathematical symbol and a model of fundamental processes in any evolving system. Since the human mind is an evolving system, the enneagram models human personality and allows us to understand ourselves and others very deeply.
Benefits of knowing the enneagram and your type:
Self-understanding: When we understand ourselves we are no longer confused by our own emotions, thoughts, and actions. We are able to interact with the world in a natural, intuitive way, using our innate talents without getting caught up in the traps of our particular personality type.
Understanding others: When we understand others we are able to interact with them in a way that acknowledges their strengths and quirks, and we can be much more effective communicators with people of all personality types.
Understanding the universe: When we understand the enneagram as a model of evolving processes, the universe offers surprising insights, makes more sense, and we begin to see the dynamics of evolution in action all around us.
Your retreat facilitator, Nick Turner, CET, received his certification as an Enneagram teacher from Don Riso and Russ Hudson at an intensive retreat in 1992. Since then he has been leading workshops, giving talks, and working personally with clients. Nick's specialty in the Enneagram is the intuitive perception of Enneagram types and Enneagram influences in people and in the world. Nick's talent helps you pull the Enneagram into the core of your being so that you can experience it intuitively without explicit analysis in each situation. When it is experienced in this way, the Enneagram becomes an effortless way to embody your deep nature and navigate life.
