Elective Course: The Enneagram
Dr. Jill Baker will explore The Enneagram of Personality which is generally used as a typology to gain insights into workplace interpersonal-dynamics; in spirituality it is more commonly presented as a path to higher states of being, essence, and enlightenment. Both contexts say it can aid in self-awareness, self-understanding and self-development.
Required Reading: Dr. Baker recommends students read the book Wisdom of the Enneagram, by Don R. Riso and Russ Hudson, and do the short tests in it. If possible, take any of the Enneagram tests available online as well. Click here to go to a page on Google with Enneagram test links. It will help you settle on your type much faster when we go through each personality in class.
