SPI 504 The Enneagram: Nourishing Inter and Intrapersonal Relationships
Faculty: Dr. Jeanette Banashak (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
A tool for anyone in a helping/serving profession, the Enneagram serves to illuminate our personality for self-discovery, highlight our motives for doing what we do, and clarify our emotions and thoughts so that we may become aware of the present moment. This course will begin with a historical and mathematical context of the Enneagram and consider its interfaith context. We will discuss the three basic components of the human psyche (instinct, thinking, feeling) that reveal our defenses of the ego self; we will learn how to “observe and let go” of troublesome habits and reactions; and we will consider how the Enneagram fosters mindfulness in daily life.
