Enneagram Workshop Will Help You Explore Your Sweet, Hot, Blind and Desired Spots

Source: Gloria Regan for Enneagram

The Enneagram is a Powerful Tool for Self-knowledge — a map of the complexity of human thoughts, emotions and behaviors. On Jan. 18 and 19 in Santa Barbara, author, psychologist and educator Jerome Wagner Ph.D. will take us on a guided tour through the important structures inherent in the Enneagram symbol. You will integrate this wisdom into a model that will enhance your understanding and increase the applicability of the Enneagram in your life and work.

Starting with our “Sweet Spot” — our positive resources — we will journey through our vulnerabilities, compensatory strategies and idealized self-images, and finally, how we can learn to shift our perspectives and paradigms to realize our “desired spot.”

Jerome Wagner Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist, therapist and faculty member in the Department of Psychology at Loyola University, Chicago. Author of Nine Lenses on the World, the Enneagram Perspective and The Enneagram Spectrum of Personality Styles, he is a founder of the International Enneagram Association, a former director, and is co-editor of the Enneagram Journal, a professional peer review publication.

The course is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 18 and 19 at the Pepper Tree Inn, 3850 State St. in Santa Barbara. Click here for more information, or to view the course outline and register.

Join in to experience Wit and Wisdom while learning about your specific style of personality.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
