Event description

Description

All that you are, every fold and crease of your individuality was devised from all eternity to fit God as a glove fits a hand. All that intimate particularity which you can hardly grasp yourself, much less communicate to your fellow creatures, is no mystery to Him. He made those ins and outs that He might fill them.—C.S. Lewis

Christian thinkers as diverse as John Calvin, Soren Kierkegaard and C.S. Lewis have recognized that knowing God and knowing ourselves are intimately bound together, each one reinforcing and deepening the other.

The Gospel is a story of creation, fall and redemption and each of us participates uniquely in each aspect of that Christian story. This workshop will explore the wisdom of the Enneagram to assist us in finding our story in God. Used in the context of the Gospel, the Enneagram can provide distinct pathways for transformation by deepening our self-awareness and encouraging contemplative and spiritual practices (means of grace) that allow us to experience the Gospel.

Awareness of the Enneagram will help you benefit from the workshop. We recommend you come with at least a hypothesis regarding your Enneagram number. Online tests are can be pretty unreliable, and I would recommend both of the following books in preparation for the workshop:

The Essential Enneagram: The Definitive Personality Test and Self-Discovery Guide,by David Daniels and Virginia Price. This book has the closest thing to a reliable test that I find helpful, and it is self-guided.

The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships,by Suzanne Stabile. This book has a chapter on each of the numbers and is a great introduction to the Enneagram.

Jill Gullahorn is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter and therapist at Sage Hill Counseling currently pursuing licensure in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Kenny Benge serves on the pastoral staff of Church of the Redeemer in Nashville as Senior Associate. He has worked with the MBTI and Enneagram for over 20 years.

Kenny and Jill are both apprentices of Suzanne Stabile, master enneagram teacher and author of The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships.
