Portland is a great place to be yourself.
Many people find that understanding personality type helps them navigate life with greater ease. A sophisticated and powerful ancient system for self-understanding and personal development, the Enneagram is used worldwide as an effective tool in spirituality, psychology, and business. The Enneagram reveals that all people belong to one of nine major personality types. Just a basic understanding of the Nine Points of View broadens your skill in communicating with others, be it in your personal or your professional life. The purpose of the Enneagram is not to put you into a box, but to help you identify both the strengths and the limitations of a preferred strategy, to give you guidance on how you may break free and develop more capacity beyond it.
Some people find that individual spiritual direction, mentoring or a focused-learning session with specialist Dale Rhodes helps get to the depth of exploring their own Enneagram type. Some also find that groups and workshops support learning the system to its fullest capacity. Both options highlight the potential for growth in self-development, intimate relationships, spirituality and worklife. People from all walks of life find the offerings to be educational, transformative and great fun.
Why connect with Enneagram Portland?
Enneagram Portland brings to your local life what the books, pages, online tests and far-away conferences can only introduce to you.
Since 2002, Enneagram Portland has provided one-on-one mentoring, spiritual direction, as well as live and local community education experiences; all facilitated by professionally-certified trainers in the Enneagram field. If you are curious about yourself and others, or are already an Enneagram enthusiast, meet with personality specialist Dale Rhodes and join the vibrant community of local students who meet in person to better understand themselves and others. If you talk type type, you should be connecting with us. Our January 16th PechaKucha event drew 180 people, and our retreat at Still Meadow May 2014 had every type represented amongst the 29 participants.
The local community of enthusiasts meets again October 18/19 2014 for a weekend with master author Tom Condon.
