Enneagram Retreat

Everyone has a unique way of ‘showing up’ in life. We all have our own ways of thinking, feeling and behaving and yet we are often unaware of the habitual patterns that keep us stuck.

  • What makes some of us strive for perfection or success?
  • Why do some of us have a deep need for connection while others prefer to withdraw?
  • Do you continually procrastinate, eat too much, get angry or struggle to make decisions?

Using the wisdom of the Enneagram, an incisive psycho/spiritual system, Margaret Loftus shows how the nine personality styles of this ‘map’ explain our unconscious motivations and how they impact the way we live our lives.

We all have great gifts to contribute, as well as behaviours that don’t serve us well and keep us trapped.  The Enneagram can enhance our gifts and uncover the way out of those self-imposed traps. It also enhances our understanding of what drives other people and what it means just to be human.

You can learn to respond to life, not just react!
