An Enneagram Journey: from Lent to Pentecost

DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS MARCH 1

$30 is the fee for your participant booklet

Embark on a LentenJourney through the Enneagram at Oak Lawn UMC! On Sunday afternoons, from March 5 to June 4 (Lent to Pentecost) you can have the opportunity to engage in deep spiritual self-discovery using the tools found in the ancient practice of the Enneagram!

Enneagram literally means “9 points” and claims that there are nine unique ways of seeing and being in the world and that each and everyone of us falls into one of these ways. The objective of Enneagram work is self-understanding, but it can also be used for understanding others, improving relationships, building teams, and for spiritual growth.

Each Sunday you will spend two hours with renowned Enneagram guru and Dallas local, Suzanne Stabile as she teaches truths from the Enneagram via DVD. This is an opportunity also to meet other people and learn deeper ways to have compassion and relate to others.

Here are some responses from individuals who participated in this journey last year:

“I think if we ALL had an understanding of the Enneagram we could become better versions of ourselves while becoming more patient and understanding of those around us, leading to less judgement and frustrations with one another.” 

“My husband and I are able to point out when our numbers are getting ahead of us or the best of us. We are able to communicate and understand one another’s motives or drives a little more …”

“…we learned a lot of self-awareness and understanding…”

“…a journey into the depths of self-awareness…definitely life-changing.”

“I truly have learned so much about myself in a way that is life-changing.”

“The enneagram journey has changed my life and encouraged me to be true to myself!”

Each session will begin at 1:30pm on Sundays, hopefully providing enough time after worship to have lunch and relax before the class begins. The class will be led by three individuals who embarked on this journey last year: Priscilla Bushe (an 8 on the Enneagram), Gretchen Toler-Debus (a 2) and Christine Cannistraci (a 6). The church will be open beforehand if you want to seek time to pray, be quiet, or journal before this time begins. Here is the schedule:
