Richmond, East Bay group: With Peter and Pat O'Hanrahan has been meeting for over ten years, space is limited. Advanced registration is required.

Note: This study group is for intermediate and advanced students who are using the Enneagram for personal growth and are interested in exploring within community. 

For continuing education and a community of support for applying the enneagram to our
inner work and relationships. 
This is an opportunity for students of the enneagram who want to be part of an ongoing support group and community. The focus will be on putting the enneagram to work in our lives and in our relationships. Lots of good theory but with an emphasis on practical application. 
Recordings are made available, for members only, of the first half of the group if you miss a meeting (no recording of the more personal sharing).

The format will include • guided meditation with breath practice • presentation on an aspect of the enneagram • whole group discussion, and • small breakout groups for more personal sharing.

Requirements for membership • You know the enneagram system and your own type well • You are able to practice centering and self awareness • You want to hear from others who are on the path and can listen well • You can commit to attending most of the meeting dates.

About Peter: I have been teaching the enneagram for 35 years to a wide variety of groups and organizations. I am a trainer in the US and other countries for the Palmer/Daniels Enneagram Professional Training Program (EPTP). And I have been leading study groups for many years (my first was in 1981) it’s my favorite format for taking the enneagram work deeper.
