Self-Care and the Nine Enneagram Types with Sandra Smith
March 4 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$35.00 – $65.00
Self-care seems to get bad publicity, at least in our minds and especially for women. Often, we hear inner narratives suggesting that “Self-care is selfish.” “I don’t need to indulge myself.” Yet, self-care isn’t indulgence nor is it selfish. It is an act of kindness toward ourselves, an honoring of ourselves, a claiming of our worth. What would you name as your barriers to caring for yourself?
Each Enneagram type has particular inner narratives that resist attending to self. This is usually associated with the type’s idealized self and defense mechanism. During our time together, we’ll engage in dyad inquiry, small group discussion, as we explore our own challenges to self-care. Self-reflection on a next step or a kindness practice will be woven into the workshop.
Participants will need a working knowledge of their Enneagram type to receive the most from this three-hour workshop. In preparation for this workshop, participants are encouraged to create a “retreat-like” space around their computer.
In this three-hour workshop, participants with some familiarity with the Enneagram are invited to bring their questions about the Enneagram along with an openness and desire to grow.
