The Season of Growth Part 1

During lockdown you may be finding there is a lot of stuff out there about what new hobbies to take up and how to be even more productive...

This is not about that....

Instead, how would it be during this period if you could:

  • powerfully accept yourself as you are

  • achieve stillness and peace

  • know and understand yourself and others even better

It may be that you are at home by yourself, or with others. A key factor in becoming peaceful with this period is about how well you relate to yourself - and others during this time.

Recognise, grow and develop into your own unique core strengths, gifts and talents.

Discover more about human nature by exploring your Enneagram type.

The Enneagram is a profound and comprehensive system for understanding ourselves and others. This personality system combines modern psychology and ancient wisdoms to understand human nature with new depth and clarity.

Learning this powerful knowledge may help you to become more peaceful with aspects of your life during lockdown - by further developing your emotional intelligence (EQ), increasing your self-awareness and improving your relationship with yourself and others.

Stuffocation - James Wallman

In this easy-to-read and fascinating book Suzanne Stabile explores the 9 Enneagram personality types.

She suggests that most of us don’t realise that not everyone thinks, behaves and processes their experience in the same way.

Knowledge of how different personality types behave and respond to experiences, such as lockdown, is especially helpful in relationships – with partners, friends or in our professional lives.

Suzanne Stabile takes us on a personal growth journey – in which you gain greater insights about yourself and your behaviours and that of other key people in your life. With greater understanding, knowledge, wisdom and compassion gained this can lead to healthier, more life-giving relationships.
