“There is no deep knowing of God without deep knowing of self.” – Augustine
The Enneagram is not just another “personality test” but a tool for transformation and self- understanding. It helps us look at the preferred pattern of living we have developed over time, showing both its gifts and growth points. One writer says that the Enneagram is not about putting us in boxes but an aid to help us get out of our box (sometimes a rut) and live more fully as our true selves.
The goal of the Enneagram is not to simply determine one’s type but to grow into a healthy, integrated, transformed person. As we become more self-aware, we learn better how to interact with each other to enhance our relationships.
The workshop will include an overview to the Enneagram and brief introductions to all nine types. We will spend time looking at the test results, interpreting the data, responding to questions, and exploring some next steps. We will address questions such as: So what? What difference does my self-awareness make? What does this mean for me, my personal growth, my relationships with others? How does this speak to my spirituality? How does this affect group dynamics and relationships?
Workshop Leaders: Pr. Craig Mueller (Holy Trinity Lutheran) will make brief presentations on the nine types and engage in conversation with Pr. Liala Buekma (Lakeview Lutheran).
Pre-workshop assignment: you will take an online inventory and recommend you spend an hour (or two) exploring some short videos, readings, and online materials.
Finding your Enneagram number:
The most recommended, thorough inventory is from the Enneagram Institute. The cost is $12.00.
Truity offers an accessible, rather short online, free inventory.
Here is a fast, free version. Take more than one inventory to see how you come out.
