Meeting ID: 885 3913 1005
Passcode: 259883
 
A new/old tool for understanding ourselves, the God who created us, and how we live in relationship with one another. Join Rev. Carlton for this short-term study that can be done from home. It is recommended during this 3 week class that you go online to www.enneagraminstitute.com and take the RHETI Test to learn your enneagram number. The cost is $12.00.

The Enneagram: What It Is and What It Isn’t (Info. from cac.org)

The Enneagram is a dynamic system. It was developed primarily in an oral tradition, in the context of relationships between students and teachers. A “dynamic system” is one that recognizes that humans are far too complex and nuanced to fit easily into simple categories; it supports the evolving, maturing human journey.

The Enneagram is not a strict law or code. 

The Enneagram is a powerful tool for self-discovery and spiritual transformation. But it shouldn’t be your only tool. The Enneagram is most helpful when used in conjunction with other practices like study, meditation, spiritual direction, and life in community with others.

The Enneagram is not just a personality typing system. Yes, there are tests and quizzes  that help you identify your primary Enneagram type, but that is often just the first step. This tool is meant to help you over a life-long journey.

While self-discovery is important, it is not the Enneagram’s final objective. The Enneagram’s purpose is to help us uncover the traps that keep us from living fully and freely as our True Self so that we will use our unique, authentic gifts for the good of others and the world.
