The Enneagram is a model for understanding psychological and spiritual development based on the foundation of nine interconnected personality types.
Director of Enneagram Studies, Matt Schlegel
Matt Schlegel was introduced to the Enneagram 15 years ago through friends and family. Fascinated, he began exploring different ways of using this new tool. An engineer and scientist at heart, he developed methodologies to use the Enneagram to help organizations develop leaders, build effective teams, and solve challenging problems. He found that the Enneagram serves as a solid foundation for endless opportunities to explore and grow.
Matt often says that the Enneagram is the single most important thing he has learned in life. Through it, he has discovered a deep understanding and acceptance of himself. He has also developed a deep appreciation and acceptance of others for who they are, and the roles that each of us play for the benefit of the community. This deep appreciation of others is what drives Matt’s passion for the Enneagram and desire to share this tool with others so that they, too, can enjoy the perspectives that the Enneagram provides.
As Director of Enneagram Studies at the Center for Spiritual Life, Matt desires to create forums to explore the many dimensions of the Enneagram, from the basic understanding of the Enneagram as a tool for personal discovery to the fundamental underlying structure of the Enneagram. Exciting areas of exploration include leadership, team dynamics, biology, psychology, mathematics, and more.

April 17th at 7:30 PM - Enneagram and Subtypes with Jane Tight.
Once you are familiar with the Enneagram, you begin to appreciate that even people with the same Enneagram type can exhibit a wide range of different behaviors. The Enneagram provides an explanation for some of these variations using the concept of subtypes. There are 3 subtypes for each Enneagram type. These subtypes are commonly labeled: Self preservation (focus on survival); One-to-one (focus on personal relationships); and, Social (focus on group belonging). In each of us, one of these instincts tends to dominate and that flavors how we each express our Enneagram type. In this workshop, Enneagram practitioner and expert, Jane Tight, will walk us through the subtypes and how they manifest in each of the Enneagram types. Please join us for an evening of discussion and exploration.
