The Enneagram

Introduction to the Enneagram

The Enneagram of Personality is a dynamic personality typing system with its roots in a long history of observing human behavior. It outlines nine different personality types with each type operating out of a mix of both natural gifts and developed defensive strategies. Once these gifts and defensive strategies are recognized, self-awareness and behavioral choice increase. The areas of life where these changes can take place are numerous resulting in increased success and satisfaction.

Moving Beyond: An Enneagram Certification and Training Program

Instructor: Sali Honess-Ondrey

This 60-hour train-the-trainer certification program provides a comprehensive Enneagram education, as well as specialized content regarding the ins and outs of bringing the Enneagram to communities generally under-resourced as well as those communities outside the traditional practice of Enneagram trainings. This unique blend of knowledge and practice provides for the graduate the needed experience to navigate in this pioneering space.


We offer several workshops for those new to the Enneagram, or to those who wish to explore the Enneagram on a deeper level. 

Upcoming Enneagram Opportunities with Sali Honess Ondrey
We are excited about these and hope you will join us.

Integrating the Enneagram Into Our Lives

Our Integrating the Enneagram Into Our Lives series for this next season will bring you the best of each of the Enneagram types. Often there is a focus on where each type gets lost and in doing so we can miss the amazing qualities each of the types hold. Over the next year we will look at each of the nine types highlighting the unique gift each offers and perhaps begin to incorporate into our own lives as we grow into our best selves. Each workshop can be registered for each month they are offered, registering for one does not obligate you to register for others. -Sali Honess-Ondrey
