Loyola: Enneagram Salons
Loyola Spirituality Center presents a series of Enneagram Salons for those who have a basic understanding of the Enneagram concept and have determined their "number." The next salon will take place on Wednesday, April 23, and will cost $25. The Enneagram is a tool used by individuals, and by psychologists, spiritual directors and personal coaches who are working with clients seeking emotional health and spiritual enlightenment, says Kay Vander Vort, spiritual director at Loyola Spirituality Center.
Each salon includes discussions around Enneagram themes. The April 23 salon features the Shaughnessy family, who will discuss "Enneagram Types and Relationships" as it relates to interactions among family members. Terry Shaughnessy is the executive director of Loyola, and his wife, Noreen, is an Enneagram educator with an extensive practice in the Enneagram.
