The 9 Ways of Being: Enneagram Foundation Course

A 2-Day Journey of Self-Discovery, Insight & Profound Positive Change, w/ Chris Croft

2-days of Self-Discovery, Insight
& Profound Positive Change

This pioneering course offers a deep exploration into the ancient wisdom of The Enneagram. During three fascinating and transformative days you will journey deep into the core of who you are, unravelling all that seems difficult to understand within both yourself and within others.

As your understanding of Your Personality Type expands you will experience startling insight into your fundamental nature, as well as gaining real understanding of your deep, unconscious needs (these needs drive you forward in life but they can also hold you back from reaching your true potential). Most importantly, you will get a clear picture of the inherent gifts of your personality type. These wonderful resources are the foundation of your potential in this life and hold the key to personal fulfilment and inner happiness.

During these 3 days you will:

  • Discover your Enneagram personality type and unravel all that seemed difficult to understand within yourself and others.
  • Breakthrough major limiting beliefs that have prevented you from reaching your potential
  • Get profound insight into self-defeating patterns that prevent your true happiness and peace… and begin to find new ways of being you!
  • Achieve unparalleled insight into other people & uncover what causes your relationships to flourish or flounder.
  • Unlock your true life purpose and achieve lasting personal fulfilment.
  • Master all difficult or painful interactions with others both past and present
  • Embrace the natural positive gifts of your personality type. These gifts are the foundation of your potential in this life and it is through these gifts that your true self is able to shine.
"I've been to a good few workshops, but they all pale in comparison. Thank you so much for working so hard on our behalf and giving us such a huge amount of knowledge. There was nothing slow or stretched out, just intense learning and all of it exciting and fascinating"

The Enneagram: A New Paradigm For Living

The Enneagram is the map of consciousness that underpins all aspects of your life. It illuminates the nine ways of being in the world, and gives deep insight into nine fundamentally different personality types, each with their own way of seeing the world, their own attitudes and ways of thinking, reacting and behaving.

The Enneagram is unparalleled in providing insight into ourselves and others. It reveals the genuine simplicity of life by unravelling the apparent complexities of human beings behaviour in profound ways that make the patterns of our lives finally make sense!

For yoga students – or in fact anyone committed to a more conscious and awakened life – the Enneagram provides real answers to deep questions about ourselves and others. By opening our eyes to our unconscious patterns, the Enneagram frees us to make huge positive steps forward into the life we really want to live. As we uncover our personality patterns, all of our hidden positive gifts emerge, we experience profound self-acceptance and clarity of purpose, and discover how to live through positivity and find lasting personal fulfilment.

When combined, the ancient wisdom of the Enneagram and a regular yoga practice are a powerful alchemy that will transform your physical, emotional and psychological well-being.

"I have been a counsellor for 15 years and have attended numerous training courses. Never before have I experienced anything like this. As well as advancing my understanding and ability to relate to my clients, I have moved forward to become a happier, more well-rounded human being"

The 9 Personality Types

Each of us is unique, and yet through the Enneagram wisdom we discover there are in fact 9 fundamental ways of being, each with their positive and negative traits. Each of these 9 types perceives their world, and those in it, differently, and has a different unconscious need that drives their outward expressions of behaviour as well as their internal thoughts and emotions.

The Enneagram Symbol – which is a living breathing expression of consciousness – provides the map upon which these seemingly complex patterns are expressed in a form that is easy to understand.

Over 3 life-changing days you will learn, in depth, about all 9 ways of being. Through the Enneagram you will finally understand all the other people in your life, and find out why you are the way you are.

For each of the 9 Ways of Being we will reveal:

  • their deep, unconscious needs, drives and fears (i.e. what makes them tick!)
  • their predictable patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving (oh you though you were unique? Sorry, its all very predictable!)
  • what their unique positive gifts are (yes, we all have them!)
  • what each type finds most difficult (these are the life challenges that force us to grow)
  • how each type interacts with their world (& the humans in it!)
  • how each type uses their energy (psychologists label you as introverted or extraverted – the Enneagram does a great deal better!)
"Thank you. What you are both doing is the answer. Thank you for teaching us all"

What outcome can I expect?

Working with the Enneagram will change your life forever. After the course human behaviour, personal interactions and relationship dynamics will no longer be a mystery. You will experience a tangible increase in self-awareness, a renewed enthusiasm for life and profound clarity and focus in whatever you pursue.

Life will be different and you will wonder how you ever lived without the Enneagram.

In addition, expect to:

  • Attract and maintain healthy fulfilling relationships
  • Experience clarity and harmony within all interactions
  • Have greater self-acceptance and confidence
  • Feel lighter, more peaceful and self-empowered
"The whole thing was brilliant. A lot of it felt like it was 'coming home', confirming what I think I already knew but didn't know I knew"
