AND WHAT ELSE?
Advanced Enneagram workshops with Kathryn Grant for 2022
Attendees should be familiar and comfortable with Enneagram knowledge and tradition. These workshops will have a different format and emphasis and Joanna and the Journey Center have offered their platform – Thanks!!
Moving into the Fall, we will look at language and strategies. Each fits well with the other and expands our understanding of how we access the wisdom and energy of this model.
October 15 (a date change!): Converting nouns to verbs. We will examine how we speak of the Enneagram, ourselves, and others. Using our language in more dynamic ways increases our understanding and makes applying our Enneagram wisdom more impactful. A tidy little project! My friend and colleague, Peter McNab will join us. Peter is a Master NLP Trainer. His work urges us to catch ourselves in using words and phrases in a way that diminishes their impact, narrowing our focus. This workshop will help you open your thinking as well as your language patterns! Take care with words! Notice the context!
November 12: We are winding up our adventure! Strivings and motivations. These two concepts are foundational to our true understanding of the Enneagram and our relationship to it. You might think that we would have been better served to start here – but my thinking is; you will gain an even more helpful way of relating with these dynamics having looked at the pieces we met during the year. Sometimes the most basic pieces are better digested after a satisfying look at “the rest of the story.”
Dates: Saturday mornings, 8:30 - 10:30 AM, PT – on Zoom
October 15 and November 12
Fee: $35 per class
A little about my journey. I first encountered the enneagram in 1994. I was astonished at the accuracy and wealth of self-knowledge available with this tool – or map. I took my first Certification training with Jerry Wagner in 1997. Since then, I have read, studied with many prominent authors and teachers, taught in many venues and a variety of topics, and now co-teach Jerry’s two-part certification. Recently I have noticed some areas where differing views or opinions are coming forward. Many are helpful – many, not so much. It has long been my dream to bring these weird and often wonderful ideas forward to a group who would like to play with these ideas in a safe and friendly environment – and share their own ideas and understandings.
I invite you to join in with me on my dream journey to experience the wonder of “first time” learning combined with the wisdom of time and experience. I am hoping that these workshops will encourage curiosity. Will open us up to possibilities and potentials and thus add to our understandings.
A word about the title: I spent many hours and days with my granddaughter, Haylee as a little one. We would play together – dinosaurs, fish, eggs, clouds, etc. I gave great explanations for many phenomena. After finishing my learned lecture, she would look me in the eye and say, “And what else?” That is the curiosity and adventure I hope for us to experience - and what else?
Format? Didactic. Break outs - and then let the fun begin. Let’s have real conversation about these ideas and others. Let’s re-visit with new eyes. Another way to look. To bring new research to the table. Not to negate – but to add. To hear one another- we do not need to agree nor come to conclusion.
The Enneagram asks us questions: How has this piece of the Enneagram helped you? Changed you? Confused you? When do you identify with a concept? When do you argue? Where do these ideas live in you? Helpful? What is not helpful? How does this show up for you?
