18CEU’s for MO social workers/therapists.
Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the Enneagram personality system from Lynnea, who has completed over 150 hours of training from The Enneagram Institute over the past two years. Participants will learn 1) how our pre-conscious personality patterns drive our behavior and create drama in relationships; 2) how to become aware of these patterns; and 3) how to easefully shift out of the roles we habitually play and into an expanded sense of wellbeing and self-actualized presence.
Participants are supported by Lynnea as they practice simple, powerful, body-centered emotional intelligence skills that reliably lead to an awareness of how our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are deeply and pre-consciously patterned into more or less stable “personalities.”
These personality patterns feel and act like “us”– in fact, we experience our personality as precious and special because it served us well in infancy and childhood, when we adopted it as a logical and functional coping and survival mechanism.
But our personality are not who we truly are; it is simply trying to imitate the truth, essence, and freedom of our beingness. When the personality is in charge, we act out our immature patterning, even as it no longer serves the more complex adults that we have become. Our personality patterns actually limit our freedom and create dysfunction and drama in relationships.
