    Do you ever wonder why you do the things you do?
    Have you thought about why you get along with some people and not others?

    The Enneagram is an ancient personality assessment that teaches us about 9 distinct personality styles, which are determined by what (subconsciously) motivates us.

    The Enneagram is useful in many settings. In business management its insights promote professional development, interpersonal dynamics, and leadership skills. In spiritual settings it is a pathway to discipleship, healthier relationships, and greater compassion for self and others.

    Join us for this experiential, enlightening, and fun day as we explore the Enneagram.  You’ll discover a new way to understand yourself and others, learn information to make positive changes in your life, and cultivate a culture of connection.
