Subtypes

Have you ever noticed that you tend to be preoccupied about one of these areas more than the other two?

  • Your (financial and family) security
  • Your (love) relationships
  • Your place in a group?

What are the subtypes?

Each Enneagram type has 3 “flavours” according to where we put most of our energy.  This means that people with the same basic motivation can show up very differently in the world, depending on their dominant subtype(s):

  • the self-preservation domain – aspects such as healthy food, exercise, relaxation time, sleep but also financial security, organising your life, your home etc;
  • the 1-to-1 or sexual domain – aspects like maintaining healthy (love) relationships, friendships, intimacy, balance in the attention you give and long for, etc.
  • the social domain – aspects such as feeling that you belong/don’t belong to groups, whether you function happily and effectively in groups, being concerned about how society operates and your role in it etc;

In order to live a happier, more healthy and complete life we need to balance all three domains in our life and in ourselves.

The Programme

The Enneagram Training  Growth with the Subtypes course is unlike most other training courses on the Subtypes. We do NOT focus just on the theory of all 27 Subtypes but also on the knowledge and insights you can gain, and on practical ways in which you can work with this for yourself and with your clients.

The Growth with the Subtypes Training is the training with the most practical application because it is all about creating awareness of instinctual behaviour – and once we are aware of it, it’s easier to change it when it doesn’t serve us.  Moreover, this training is the one that will confirm (or disconfirm) your type.  During this training it’s not uncommon for participants to have an “Aha!” experience and realise their true Enneagram type.  For these two reasons, I especially enjoy delivering this training: seeing participants gain insight and leave with practical plans for change.  And when they let us know about the changes that have subsequently taken place, that is immensely rewarding.”– Rosemary Cowan
