Intensive Growth Journey

March 2020 – Corona Virus

We have rescheduled all our courses for 2020-2021. The dates you see below are the rescheduled dates.

  • Are you on a personal development path?
  • Do you want to live consciously and/or are you interested in transformative work?
  • Do you work with other people to support them and inspire their growth?

Learning how to do practical growth work with the Enneagram will enable you (and your clients) to learn to cope in a fundamentally different way with difficult situations, unwanted habits and challenging people.

What is the Enneagram Intensive Growth Journey?

  • The Enneagram Intensive Growth Journey has been running for almost 30 years all over the world.
  • It teaches you the basic knowledge and skills needed to use the Enneagram in your life, practice or work.
  • It provides the solid basis required if you want to undertake further Professional Training.
Who is this training for?

Teachers, trainers, managers, coaches, counsellors, mediators, therapists, pastoral workers, social workers  and many people searching on their own spiritual path have all found the Intensive Growth Journey profoundly helpful.  Every certified Enneagram trainer or coach has been through this training – most of them more than once, because they find it so powerful.

The programme

The Intensive Growth Journey is a five-day, in-depth, experiential development journey.  It elegantly interweaves short theoretical pieces, interactive exercises, panel interviews and personal exploration.   During this time you will:

  • deepen your knowledge of and insight into the psychology of the nine types, and explore your own patterns
  • learn about the nine defence mechanisms, patterns of reactive behaviour and growth paths
  • learn skills and practices which enable you to reflect on, identify and take the next steps on your own growth journey.

The Intensive Growth Journey starts at 09:30 am on Day 1. On subsequent days we meet at 8.45 am.  After dinner the training programme continues and we finish at around 9:00 pm. On the last day we finish at around 4:30/5:00 pm. The Intensive Growth Journey has a CPD value of 43.5 contact hours.

What will you gain from taking part?
  • profound self-knowledge and self-understanding
  • compassion for and appreciation of yourself and others
  • skills such as self-observation, self-reflection and self-management
  • progress towards mastering and relaxing your ego-pattern
  • more sustainable, satisfying and effective relationships in private life and in the work place
  • progress toward being more happy, free, effective, efficient, fulfilled, connected, self-confident, present, conscious and grounded within yourself.

Comments from previous participants:

“I found the experience very profound and the insights helpful. I was able to join dots that I hadn’t connected before which then helped me to let some things go. I left the experience with greater energy and trust, and with ideas about how to move forward. I hadn’t appreciated before how important it is to get into our bodies to become more aware of our inner world.”   Lydia

“The training provided by the team was excellent.  The facilitators imparted a wealth of understanding that was not simply about transferring head knowledge but rooted in a commitment to their personal transformation and the open-hearted service of others on the journey.  The depth of learning, relationship and progression that occurred over just a few days is remarkable.”  Paul Wenham, General Director, Ashburnham Place

“The Enneagram in the narrative tradition is opening up my world in ways I could never have imagined.  I thought I had a really good understanding of myself and others and how I manage relationships – it has been my world for the past 30 years –  but this deeper study  has taken me, and my perspective, to a whole different level. The groundedness and authenticity of the facilitators  and safety of the style of delivery enables and encourages every participant to share a little more of their world for our personal growth. This rare insight is humbling and transformative. Thank you Rosemary and your team.” Sue Murray, Director, Sue Murray and Partners Ltd.
