Enneagram Portland
Understanding the Nine Points of View through Literature, Film and Community

2nd *Thursday* Evenings
January thru June 2018
6.30pm-8.45pm, Open

​Looking for a way to expand your community of friends who talk type?

This program will explore writings on the Nine Points of View, along with one novel per month. This is a small group exploration of the Nine Types in Depth, using specific literature and film to enhance our experience and enjoyment. The book or movie may offer a character who generally exemplifies an Enneagram Type, or it may explore themes that relate to an Enneagram Type's area of attention, motivations and life themes, vice to virtue conversion, or paths to disintegration and development.

This year our exploration is through the lens of types focusing more prominently on Competency, Positivity or Reactivity.

Requirements: All members commit to the full 6 month process. Each month, you will review a very short chapter and handouts on a specific type and read the chosen book and/or view the chosen film. You also commit to meeting with a different member over coffee/tea each month at a time of your choosing in order to further explore content, reflections and responses to the course content and class sessions. Dale Rhodes will provide a 30-minute teaching on the type of the month; including music, poetry, video clips of the nine types and written resources on the instincts, wings, connecting points, etc. There is plenty of time for reflections and questions amongst the eight to ten participants.

This is a great interdisciplinary way to expand your understanding of the Nine Points of View in your own life. And it is a way to explore personality and artistic content with people from different points of view.

​Most resources are available for free via book/downloads/film thru Multnomah County Library.
