A Tool For Transformation
Saturday, June 10, 2017
Registration at 8:30 am
Workshop from 9 am to 4 pm
(Break for lunch on your own)
Spirit Room, 111 Broadway
Fee $180 


This is an invitation to have a beginning experience of the Enneagram, a system of ancient wisdom that can lead to a life-long path of self-realization.

The presentation will provide an overview of the nine basic personality types, including the ego’s conditioned version and the hidden pearl at the core of each, its True Nature.   Through interactive exercises, you will engage your own experience.

The Enneagram invites us into a deeper journey of personal and spiritual development by starting with where we are in our conditioned personality structures, and sensing into our divine soul qualities, becoming free to express more of who we really are.

We highly recommend you know your own Enneagram Type when you arrive on the 10th. The website www.enneagraminstitute.com has low-cost Type Indicators that can be taken on line for instant results. We recommend the RHETI. Your registration for this event entitles you to a free consultation (in person or by email) with Linda Johansen prior to the workshop to review your scores. Contact her at 701-361-2827 or LindaKJohansen@hotmail.com.

To register for this event, call or email Carol or Linda. If you arrive by 8:30, you can pay at the door. If you prefer to pre-register, you may send a check for $180 payable to Center for Compassion and Creativity at Spirit Room, 111 Broadway, Fargo, ND 58102. Be sure to include your contact information
