Know Thyself

Bethlehem Lutheran Church Twin Cities
4100 Lyndale Avenue
Minneapolis, MN 55409

A combination of creating quiet space for listening and prayer for meditation and reflection. Participants are invited to relax, reflect and re-create a life that allows for quiet time to listen for the rhythm of God’s work in the world and in their lives.

The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system that helps people understand who they are and what makes them tick. It uses nine interrelated numbers to understand nine basic types of people. The purpose is not to put us in a “personality box,” or to change personalities, but to learn how to recognize and work with the parts of our personality that limit us and do more of what works for us. It is a tool for self-awareness that helps people grow in their emotional intelligence.

In the morning you will learn the system of the enneagram and use tools to discover your own number. In the afternoon you will use the enneagram to understand how to operate and communicate in various relationships in your life. Learn how each type has a style of communication, with various speaking styles, body language and blind spots to help you learn how you communicate and also aid in interpreting other people. You will also learn a model for giving people in your life effective feedback for the purpose of creating change. You will understand how one’s enneagram style may get in the way of giving and receiving feedback, along with tips for how to give feedback to each style. In this way, you will better “know thyself” and those around you.

COST $45
Payable to Bethlehem, includes continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, coffee and enneagram materials.

Pastor Holly Johnson is trained in the Enneagram in Business, by Ginger Lapid-Bogda, and is also the pastor of Spirit Garage in Minneapolis (a ministry of Bethlehem Twin Cities). Holly understands herself to be a two with a well-traveled eight-line, and if you don’t know what that means but are curious, this retreat is the right place to be.

Steph Smith, Bethlehem’s Director of Faith Integration, received her 500 hour yoga certification last fall and teaches at Minneapolis Yoga in Uptown.  She will lead us in a 30 minute session of intentional breathing, light stretching and relaxation.  With regard to the enneagram, she shows up as a two, but communicates like a seven.
