Enneagram

What is the Enneagram?

Enneagram_symbol_plain

The Enneagram is an amazing personality tool with roots in ancient wisdom which joins together psychology and spirituality to help us understand our true self – our essence. It allows us to identify the repeated behaviour patterns in our personality type that prevent us from reaching our full potential as a human being. The Enneagram is also very useful in helping us to understand the many dimensions of both our personal and professional relationships.

INTRODUCTION TO THE ENNEAGRAM

Saturday 26th May, 2018 9am – 4pm

This one-day workshop is for those who are new to the Enneagram as well as those who have had some previous exposure and would like to refresh their knowledge. This dynamic presentation will explore the nine personality styles, explaining how our style affects the way we experience the world and why we behave the way we do. It will cover the basic fears of each type and the fascinating ways our personality structures develop to protect us from those fears.

Using movies, songs and stories, Enneagram teacher and registered psychologist, Bernadette Galea, will guide you on a journey of self-discovery, inviting you to develop more compassion towards yourself and others.

INTRODUCTION TO THE INSTINCTUAL SUBTYPES

Sunday 27th May, 2018 9am – 4pm

Every person has three instincts – self-preservation, one-to-one and social – but in each individual one of these tends to be more central in our daily lives and relationships. This primary instinct determines our Enneagram subtype.

This one-day workshop is for those who would like to explore the 27 instinctual subtypes of the Enneagram and how subtype can affect our choices, priorities and relationships. Understanding the instinctual subtypes and how they show up in each of the nine basic types takes the Enneagram to a whole new level.

Instinctual Subtypes: Building Better Relationships Workshop

14th – 15th July, 2018

Location: Mercy Place, Bardon (Brisbane), Qld

Date & Time: 14th-15th July, 2018 – 9am-5pm daily (registration 8:30am on first day)

Price: $395 (EARLY BIRD $375 before 14th May, 2018)

The Enneagram is a powerful tool for creating more successful relationships with the people in our lives. Knowing how nine personality types think, feel and behave in very different ways allows us to increase our empathy and communication, reduce unnecessary conflict, and build bridges with one another. Understanding the instinctual subtypes takes this to a whole new level.

The primary subtype focus shows up in our relationships in three vital areas: 1) security issues reflected in personal warmth, finances, health and family; 2) social belonging and recognition through group participation, social duty, and friendships; 3) a quest for union in one-to-one connections, sexual intimacy or spiritual practice.

Subtype in a primary relationship is as important as personality type when it comes to daily life, where relationships are largely shaped by instinct and emotion. What do we expect of our partner for personal time and attention, and how does this fit with her or his priorities? Who initiates physical contact and how much? Who cooks and cleans? Who takes care of the finances? How do we include friends and family?

Understanding subtypes is a way of bringing all this to our awareness and having a language to describe it. It helps with friends, family and work relationships too. We can develop new skills to negotiate subtype differences (and similarities) in relationship. We are better able to meet our partner’s and friends’ needs for security and identity. We can manage the rhythms of contact and withdrawal without taking it all so personally. And we learn how to balance all three instincts, each of which plays an important role in both work and family life.

In this workshop we will explore:

  • How subtype affects our relationships at home and at work.
  • How the development of instincts in early childhood impacts our adult relationships.
  • How our defenses and emotional habits affect our subtype behavior.
  • The challenges and the blessings of the six subtype combinations in primary relationships.
  • Using the intelligence of all three centers – head, heart, and body – for successful relationships.

The format will include lectures, panel interviews, and small group work. All participants will receive an 85 page handbook (pdf file) on the subject of subtypes and relationships upon registration.
