July Retreat Day
Saturday July 27, 2019
9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Introduction to the Enneagram
The Enneagram is a tool that delineates 9 ways the ego forms to create distinct personality types. When we become more familiar with our own personality type, and how it is different from the 8 others, we develop more understanding and compassion for others and ourselves. This introduction to the Enneagram gives an overview of the system, defines the nine personalities and illuminates each type’s relationship to the other eight Enneagram “points”. Everyone will identify their type and learn more about how our motives, fears, beliefs, values and communication styles define a beginning point of spiritual growth. In conjunction with our meditation practice, knowledge of the enneagram can help us see ourselves more truthfully and free us to grow in the practice of Christian values. Linda has asked us all to invite our friends as it will help us all learn if we have all nine enneagram types represented at our retreat day! The more the merrier!
Linda Petty is certified as an Enneagram teacher by Helen Palmer’s Enneagram Professional Training Program. She has taught individuals, couples and organizations the skills that enable all of us to be more aware and present in our daily activities and relationships.

Abba Isidore of Pelusia said: “Living without speaking
is better than speaking without living. For a person who
lives rightly helps us by silence, while one who talks too
much annoys us. If, however, words and life go hand in hand,
it is the perfection of all philosophy.”
