Enneagram STL

Group Description

The Enneagram is a map of personalities. Through the Enneagram, we explore and understand the importance of presence in our bodies, compassion in our hearts and expansion in our minds. The Enneagram teaches us that we are more than our personalities.

Whether you've been studying the Enneagram for while or are new, all are welcome! Join us to explore, learn, and understand through study, discussion, workshops and experiential sharing using the Enneagram for greater connection with our deepest selves.

"We are all driven by a deep inner restlessness. We may feel this restlessness as a sense that something is missing in us, although it is usually difficult to define exactly what it is. We have all sorts of notions about what we think we need or want—a better relationship, a better job, a better physique, a better car, and on and on. We believe that if we acquire that perfect relationship or job or new “toy,” the restlessness will go away, and we will feel satisfied and complete. But experience teaches us that the new car makes us feel better for only a short time. The new relationship may be wonderful, but it never quite fulfills us in the way we thought it would. So what are we really looking for?

If we reflect for a moment, we may realize that what our hearts yearn for is to know who we are and why we are here. But little in our culture encourages us to look for answers to these important questions. We have been taught that the quality of our life will improve primarily if our external fortunes improve. Sooner or later, however, we realize that external things, while valuable in themselves, cannot address the deep restlessness of our soul."

–from the Preface of The Wisdom of the Enneagram
