The Enneagram and Relationships:

The Dynamics of Intimacy and Interpersonal Effectiveness

November 5-7, 2010

A Retreat at beautiful Mercy Center, Burlingame, CA.

A life without relationships…it’s impossible. Relationships are core to our existence, and have an enormous impact on our identity, self-worth, and success in the world. They can be rewarding and intriguing, as well as baffling and sometimes painful. How we interact with others provides a key to our psychological and spiritual development.

The Enneagram offers a profound and immensely practical way to understand and shift your relationships with others.

In this authorized Riso-Hudson workshop:

· Deepen your awareness of how automatic and core thinking and emotional dynamics impact relationships;
· Explore your historical conflict/coping patterns and learn effective methods you can use for more effective communication.
· Discover how the three Instinctual Variants (Subtypes) affect primary motivations and priorities in your relationships.
· Experience the impact of increasing your presence on the health of your relationships.

This authorized Riso-Hudson workshop is recommended for couples, single individuals who are interested in creating conscious relationships, parents, adult children of elderly parents, professionals who work closely with clients and anyone having challenges in their relationships.
