I just returned from California where my longtime friend, Lori, and I attended two Enneagram courses. They were Lori's first and my last in a series aimed at certifying as an Enneagram Professional in the Narrative Tradition.
I have been utilizing the Enneagram for my personal development since 2011 and have incorporated it into my professional coaching since 2015. For those interested in making lasting changes, I believe the Enneagram is the most valuable and honest tool available. I have seen both open-minded folks and skeptics alike connect with and learn from the mirror the Enneagram offers. And both in my course work and with clients I have witnessed physicians, business executives, nurses, occupational therapists, and psychologists thrive.
What is the Enneagram? We all have a lens we see and experience the world through. The Enneagram illuminates the lens you use, thus broadening your view. With the Enneagram, you will see your lens rather than merely seeing through your lens. Rather than running on auto-pilot and being asleep to personal responsibility, you will see your patterns and habits that serve you well and those that keep you stuck.
At this time, I am developing a plan for an Enneagram study group in Saint Paul honoring the Narrative Tradition. I am also coordinating with my instructors to bring Narrative Tradition training to the Twin Cities for those that aren't able to travel but are interested in enhancing their use of this powerful tool.
I hope many of you will join our community and commitment to uncovering your lens. Even if you're merely curious, please consider learning more through the upcoming study groups and courses. And you can always contact me directly to schedule a typing interview or to find out more about how I incorporate this into my coaching.
