Fall Formation for Adults Begins September 18 with The Enneagram: An Introduction and Overview


Sundays, 11:15-12:15, the Cloister


In a three-part series, Marilyn Wolf will give us an overview of this unique map of human nature that helps guide our spiritual work and path. This tool, with ancient roots, offers insight into our God given personality and motivations, struggles, and gifts. Its wisdom can lead to greater self-awareness and deeper love of self and others. We will look at the three “Centers of Intelligence” (mind, heart, and body) as well as other key concepts such as focus of attention, core motivations, and the importance of the connecting lines.


Marilyn Wolf, M.Ed., is a seasoned teacher who has been working with the Enneagram since 2000. She is passionate about sharing her experience of the Enneagram with others because of its enormous impact on her own life and the lives of her many students. To get the most from this brief overview and get a start on discovering your type, please consider taking an assessment at www.enneagraminstitute.com. For those who want to learn more, a good concise introductory resource is the book The Essential Enneagram by David Daniels, MD. We will meet Sunday mornings in the Cloister and the class will be recorded.

Parents of middle and high schoolers are invited to gather at Steel Hands Brewing, 1918 W. Gate City Blvd., after dropping the kids off at church for EYC at 5.
