The Enneagram: Seven Deadly Sins (plus two) or Nine Paths to Creativity

The Enneagram traces its roots to ancient mystery schools of the Near East and was adapted for psychological use in the 1960s by Oscar Ichazo in Arica, Chile. It is a fun and useful means of understanding oneself and others by appreciating, in a new way, personality dynamics within families, work settings, and friendships. This workshop is designed to introduce the participants to the nine types, so they can recognize themselves and see possible interpersonal traps and opportunities for growth.

Workshop Time and Date: 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. CST; Saturday, July 18
Workshop Lead: David O’Donaghue ’77
