Sisters to host Enneagram Workshop
Would you like to know more about you? Then plan on joining the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, for the upcoming Enneagram Workshop, scheduled for 7 p.m., on Oct. 30, to 10:45 a.m., on Nov. 1.
During the workshop, facilitator Sister Margie Klein, SSND, will help you experience one of the most powerful tools for understanding ourselves and others as Enneagram helps us to see ourselves at a deeper, more objective level.
“The thirst for human understanding of the self and of others has been part of the human journey throughout history,” Sister Margie said. “The Enneagram is one system for self-understanding that helps us to look at how life has shaped us into who we are, and more importantly, gives us some tools for understanding and making choices for further spiritual growth and human development.”
The Enneagram comes out of an ancient tradition that has been fairly recently rediscovered as a helpful, universal, and cross-cultural tool for self-understanding. Its richness is found in the powerful possibilities it holds for deep spiritual and personal transformation.
“Many theologians and spiritual writers talk about contemplation as ‘taking a long, loving look at the real,’” Sister Margie said. “This workshop is a bit like that – taking a long, loving look at my gifts, my way of earning love from those around me, what happens to me when I am not at my best, and what choices I may want to make in order to grow beyond patterns that no longer work.
“By looking not only at behaviors, but also motivations and expectations, we come to a better understanding of the gifts we bring to our relationships, our prayer, our ministry, as well as the things that may be holding us back in becoming our best selves.”
