Session Descriptions

Day 1 – Saturday, April 22: How we Share the Space Between Us                     

Individuals and couples deepen their empathy for each other’s inherent giftedness, natural intelligence, and struggles as we invite each person to speak from their unique Enneatype perspective. We explore in depth the patterns of thinking, behaving, and relating specific to each couple’s Enneatype mix, including the impact of wings and arrows. Together we consider what it looks like to love each other well in light of these combinations and movements.

Each couple will have approximately 2 hours of pre-session preparation before this session, including identifying their enneagram types if they haven’t already done so.

Day 2 – Saturday, April 29: How we Move in Understanding, Empathy, and Compassion

We examine more deeply the patterns that enhance and impede connection, including Enneatype-related communication styles,  and the ways we most often feel ‘missed’ or misunderstood. Building on the Day 1 content, couples Identify and explore opportunities for making intentional shifts to enhance connection and navigate their patterns of relating in more compassionate ways. Each couple will be invited to thoughtfully consider their vision for their shared journey forward.
