The Enneagram: Self-Awareness and Growth Certificate

The Enneagram : Self-Awareness and Growth Certificate

Tyndale Spiritual Formation Centre

What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram is a dynamic, spiritually grounded personality system, describing nine different patterns of thinking, feeling and acting. It helps you become more aware of your own patterns, blind spots, automatic reactions, and gifts so that you can change and grow. This inner work creates more depth in your spiritual journey. True transformation takes place and compassion grows!

A minimum of five modules are required for each level to recieve a certificate of completion.
