The Rev. Bob Flick will lead an Enneagram Retreat in St. Bede’s Chapel on October 18 from 7-9 PM and Saturday morning, October 19 from 9 AM-Noon. Enneagram is an ancient Sufi system of personality typology that became popular in the US in the early eighties. Since then there have been many books, websites, and apps developed to help understand the system. It has become useful over time in helping to understand our individual and common Christian journeys as it is quite congruent with Christian Spiritualities. During our time together, we will talk about the Enneagram system in general, its centers, types, arrows, wings and other patterns with an eye to understanding ourselves and others and to our personal/spiritual growth and development. Registration is now open. The cost of the workshop is $25.00, payable online with a credit card when you register (please write in the memo "Enneagram Workshop) or on the first evening of the retreat with cash or check.
