Understanding personality through storytelling, myth, and poetry. In this experiential class we will use the framework of the Enneagram which describes nine core personality types to explore with stories our gifts, challenges, and doorways to growth
Students will be guided to create and play with stories as we mine themes which both support us and hold us back. We’ll have the opportunity to experience oral storytelling, short writings, as well as expression through art and color and acting out dramatically to playfully understand ourselves and others. No experience in anything necessary!
