The Enneagram with Prof. Richard Groves

Through a highly interactive programme participants will explore the nine different personality types of the Enneagram and their own personality through the fields of philosophy, psychology and spirituality.

The workshop is led by the experienced Professor Richard Groves. Professor Groves has been studying the Enneagram for over 20 years and has worked closely with the esteemed Richard Rohr.

Day 1: An introduction to the history, traditional and evolution of the Enneagram. Professor Groves will introduce each of the 9 styles and offer classic examples through multi media and personal testimony.

Day 2: As the participants have a more significant understanding of the styles they begin to focus in on their own core type. Through a process of ‘panels’ and personal discovery the search become more refined.

This workshop provides an intimate and accessible introduction to the Enneagram tool.
