Enneagram

symbol

Many spiritual traditions teach how self-knowledge can lead to soul knowledge. The Enneagram is a powerful tool for understanding ourselves and others. The Enneagram is like the proverbial onion, each layer of awareness can be used in our daily life.

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are. Joseph Campbell

Mission Statement:
We are privileged to share the ancient wisdom of the Enneagram. Using this tool of self-knowledge to mid-wife transformation; through discovering our essence hidden behind our personality, and integrating the two.

What is an Enneagram?
The Enneagram is a system of personality development with ancient roots, based on what we can observe about how people think, feel and behave.

The word Enneagram comes from the Greek, “Ennea”means nine and “gram” means something written or drawn.  The Enneagram is a nine-pointed figure drawn to represent the nine types of people.

Value of the Enneagram
The Enneagram provides a sense of who you are, how you fit into the scheme of things, and how you interact with other people.  It helps you understand other people and their points of view.

The Enneagram helps you understand how you are boxed in by your habit of mind so that you have a chance to get out of your particular box.

It works in team building.  It promotes effective relationships, successful adaptation to change, understanding the strengths and weaknesses of yourself and others, and avoidance of blame.  It helps you take things less personally under stress.

By learning to recognize the fundamental differences among us, relationships with spouses, family, friends, and business associates will improve.  Improved interactions will enhance effectiveness.

Offerings:

We offer Monthly Discussion Group, Level one classes, and Level two classes.

Monthly Discussion Group (after attending Level I classes):
Offered: The  2nd Monday of the month
Time: 7:00-9:00p.m.
Where: The Center
Description:  There will be a discussion on many topics relevant to using the Enneagram in your lives.  The reason the discussion group is limited to those who have finished Level One classes is that we have  found each person needs a working knowledge of their own patterns.

Name & Credentials:
Introducing Chaplain Kathleen B. Brown, BS, MAPS, NACC

Biography:
A married woman who loves the country life, I have mothered four children and now celebrate eleven grandchildren. As a lifelong learner I enjoy reading, gardening, writing, photography, nature, people and travel. I’ve been part of a medical mission trip to Uganda, Africa and later made family connections in Taiwan, ROC. One never knows where the Spirit will take us if we are willing to join the adventure and trust in God given opportunities.

I have been a Board Certified Chaplain since 1998 providing one-to-one pastoral care to people in hospice care, medical crisis, treatment options, grief and recovery.  Now retired from hospital ministry I invite individuals into sacred conversation under the banner of: Your Spirit Matters.

Whether you are churched or unchurched it would be a privilege to journey with you as a spiritual companion to uncover new treasures of hope, healing and a deepening awareness of the divine activity in life. Intentional spiritual dialog is not about lofty theology or fixing life problems, but rather expanding one’s perspectives, rediscovering inner strengths, surprising grace and inspiration regarding life challenges.

Offerings:
Spiritual Care

Check out my brochure at The Center in Eau Claire for further information. Limited resources should not stop a person from seeking spiritual care. You are invited to take the matter to prayer since hour long sessions will be on a donation basis.
