What we're about

We are a group interested in using the Enneagram of Personality and in deepening our understanding of the system - to serve our own self-awareness (and awareness of the motivations of others), and ultimately to allow our lives to become more vibrant and open.

Newcomers are welcome - just bring an open mind and a willingness to assimilate possibly new ways of seeing. We are dedicated to developing deeper awareness through the Enneagram, and therefore will have sessions often tailored to those who have been studying the system for a while. Newcomers may therefore need some time to get "up to speed."

We meet monthly, typically with short formal presentations devoted to sub-topic areas related to the Enneagram, and sometimes also with experiential practices or exercises, or group discussion. Sometimes there is advance preparation asked, other times not. (The meeting announcement will make this clear each time.) Group size is usually intimate (5 - 15) and individual feedback is provided.

New Series - Methods for Typing

New York Theosophical Society

$10.00

Dear Enneagram group, We will resume our public meetings in early April, starting a new series on "Methods for Determining One's Enneagram Type." This will be a beginner-friendly series, so all are welcome. However, early RSVPs are appreciated, and the Organizer will attempt to contact newcomers to the group for some preliminaries. Our group discussions seem to work best when we have people who know each other at least a little bit, so coming regularly is a benefit as we build a dialog that is accessible to those with a range of knowledge about the Enneagram, and yet also probes deeply into fresh insights and implications of the system. Our topic is fundamental to the success of the Enneagram in the wider world - how do people first come to be aware of their own Enneagram type? and, given such an awareness, how certain or uncertain can one realistically be about this? The answers of the last fifty-odd years (since the Enneagram emerged from private groups into a more public arena) have included: 1. incisive type-descriptions in the Enneagram literature, that some (many?) people seem to be able to recognize intuitively: though there seems also to be a numerous group who for one reason or another may not be able to see their own type in a stable way - for example, seeming sure but then shifting their self-diagnoses over time); 2. off-the-shelf questionnaire-type Enneagram tests: while these are universally acknowledged as imperfect, there is diversity of opinion on just how imperfect they may be (and of course, also on which particular tests are the least imperfect); 3. group processes, such as type-panels composed of people who are all supposed to have the same type (e.g., "Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition"), and structured or semi-structured group dialog in which feedback is provided from different perspectives. We'll start with an overview and look at some sample test questions and video-clips of group panels in action, with time for group discussion. Hope you choose to attend.
