Event Type: Tyndale Spiritual Formation Centre

This event is part of the Enneagram Certificate 2021-2022. The Enneagram Certificate 2021-2022 offers 7 modules, beginning October 2, 2021 running through April 30, 2022.

About This Event

Explore the way you protect yourself when you are triggered by fear or stress and create an idealized version of yourself to present to others. You do this in order to be acceptable to God, others and self. Awareness of your own and others’ defence systems can help you be more authentic, caring and understanding of others.

Learning Objectives

  • To learn more about the vulnerability underlying your personality type
  • To see how the idealized version of yourself helps you cope.

Note: A week before the workshop date, participants will be given access to videos to be viewed ahead of the class. Class time will be conducted under the assumption that participants have watched the videos. Please register early and come prepared to the workshop with your questions and queries.
