About the event
We are delighted to announce that Mark Scandrette will be leading a retreat day on using the Enneagram as a tool for personal transformation and thriving relationships.
Your personality profoundly shapes the landscape of your spiritual journey and how you show up in your family and team relationships. This is why a spiritual discipline that is effective for one person might not be as helpful for another. Most of us get to a point in life where our normal patterns of thinking and being aren’t working and we feel stuck. This isn’t just about behavior, but also what drives us towards certain actions: our intentions and habitual ways of thinking and doing.
In recent years the Enneagram has become a popular tool for self discovery and growth that many have found helpful, (and it has connections to the work of the dessert fathers and mothers of the 4th and 5th centuries).
In this practical and interactive day retreat designed for individuals and teams we will:
- use the vocabulary of the Enneagram to help us explore our core motivations, scripts and fears;
- reflect on how the gospel might speak life to each personality type; particularly focusing on the nine invitations of the Beatitudes
- consider the kinds of spiritual disciplines that are most helpful to particular personality types
- explore how an understanding of personality can improve team and personal relationships and public communication.
At the conclusion of the retreat, participants will be invited to join an optional 21 day growth experiment group (facilitated online).
Date: Saturday 10th September
Time: 9:30am - 5:30pm
Facilitated by Mark Scandrette
