 Saturday 4 May 2019 10:00-16:30Use your Signature Strengths to Navigate a Global World in Transition -
Workshop Speaker Claudia Ritter 
 
Today’s world is undoubtedly Volatile,Uncertain,Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA). The polarization of debates in politics, economics, the social sphere and the media - man vs woman, old vs young, left vs right – creates simplified versions of reality. How do we navigate this global landscape in transition without losing our identity? How do we develop a growth mindset, spot emerging opportunities and communicate confidently? And how do we live our values – be it at home, at work, or at play?   
See flyer for more information on what you can expect to get from the workshop and on Claudia Ritters background and experience.

Saturday 20 Oct 2018 10h00-16h30ENNEAGRAM  - PART 1/2 -  - Presenter: Mary Leahy FCJ
 Attendance at both sessions is very highly recommended, however many important insights can be gained from one session if this is all is possible for you.

What is the Enneagram?

There are many tools available today for guidance on the inner journey, to discover more about our relationship with self, others and God. The Enneagram is one such tool rediscovered in recent years. Its wisdom provides insight for exploring both the gifted and wounded sides of our psychological  and spiritual natures.
The Enneagram places 9 points on a circle which focus on the basic spiritual issues of human life: 
  • The way people hurt themselves and alienate others,
  • The path for constructive relationships with other people,
  • The direction towards integrating the infinite variety of our potential.
The Enneagram is all about self-transformation.  We can change and it shows us how.  Appropriate paths for spiritual development indicate the way we can go if we are willing to change and grow.
For many who set out on the inner journey, the Enneagram presents a challenge as we move forward to fullness of life, enriching our relationship to God.
