Within our daily lives, we can find ourselves being busy, with time passing quickly, responding to the expectations of others and ourselves. Often, we can lose our sense of self, and feel out of sorts. On occasions, we may experience some anxiety, and sense that we aren’t progressing or growing.

Going on a retreat is an opportunity to slow down and re-connect with ourselves. It is from this place, our true self, that we can draw upon insights, and grow psychologically and spiritually, supporting us along our own path. With origins in ancient wisdom and teachings of mathematicians, philosophers and theologists, the Enneagram provides a psychological and spiritual lens for our personal growth.

As a word, Enneagram comes from the Greek Ennea, which means ‘nine’ and Gram, which means ‘written’ or ‘drawn’. Represented as a geometric figure, the Enneagram points to nine psychological archetypes (types), or different ways of relating or reacting to the world. As a doorway to self-discovery and self-awareness, it is a powerful tool for transformation that can replenish our spiritual energy by helping us to reconnect with our true self, our most authentic way of being.

‘Exploring the Enneagram I’ Rydal Hall retreat is for anyone of us who is:
• New to the Enneagram who is curious about how it can support our personal growth
• Tired and wanting to break free of old, repeated patterns of behaviour
• Sensing that there is more to learn and is intuitively drawn to the Enneagram
• Open to growing spiritually and is wanting to connect with our true essence
• Drawn to slowing down, and experiencing the beauty and joy that life offers
• Studying, working, or not working
