Enneagram Minnesota is a volunteer-led local chapter of the International Enneagram Association. We have been offering quality Enneagram education events since 1998.

Enneagram teaches that we are three-centered beings, with needs to engage our heads, hearts, and bodies. All centers are equally important, but the head has tended to be over-emphasized in Enneagram learning. So, this programming year we are moving beyond intellectual curiosity and diving deep into topics of the heart and body. We believe the Enneagram is a path to presence and transformation. We have excellent facilitators to guide us. Join us on the journey!

Enneagram & The Centers 

Three Fundamental Ways to Process Experience

On February 2, 2023, Anne MureĆ©, founder of the Minnesota Chapter of the International Enneagram Association, taught a program on Enneagram & The Centers. It was designed to expand our understanding of one of the roots of our Ennea-type—the three Centers of Head, Heart and Body. As a gift to Enneagram Minnesota and beyond, she is sharing a video of that teaching here. In it, she clarifies how the three centers operate and identifies what happens when we are stuck in our center. She discusses the three qualities of presence, Being – Loving – Awareness, and what you can do in the here and now to gain freedom from the “stuckness” and suffering of your type. Enjoy!

Enneagram & The Body

A Panel Discussion

Join us in-person on Thursday March 2, from 6:30-8:30 pm CT at Carondelet Center, St. Paul, MN. 

We will dive deeper into what it means to be a Body Centered Type. As this Center of Intelligence has often been under-represented/misunderstood and discounted in the U.S. dominant culture, (that often has over-valued Head intelligence and only recently has come to honor/value Heart - emotional intelligence),  we wanted to start with this Center-  to illuminate for us what it feels like to sense and understand the world primarily through Body Intelligence.

With Types 8, 9 and 1 represented by members of our community, we will have a facilitated discussion centering on what it means to encounter and interpret the world primarily through kinesthetic sensing and movement.

A Panel Discussion

Join us in-person on Thursday April 13, from 6:30-8:30 pm CT at Carondelet Center, St. Paul, MN. 

We will dive deeper into what it means to live primarily from the Heart or ‘emotional’ Center. The Heart center regulates the feeling function - the experience and expression of emotions. Connecting primarily through empathy, the Heart center allows you to feel your emotions and connect to others. When used in healthy ways, the Heart Center can guide us in relating to ourselves and each other in healthy ways. Overuse or underuse of this Center can lead to over-sensitivity and/or emotional manipulation. Come hear a facilitated panel discussion among Types 2, 3, and 4 to understand more deeply what it means to live primarily through the Heart Center.

Enneagram & The Head

A Panel Discussion

Join us in-person on Thursday May 4, from 6:30-8:30 pm CT at Carondelet Center, St. Paul, MN. 

We will conclude our Centers exploration by hearing from a panel comprised of  Head or ‘intellectual’ Center Types 5, 6, 7s. This Center regulates the thinking function; how we experience and express our thoughts, beliefs, and other cognitive activities. While rational thought, analysis and reasoning is essential, over-reliance on this kind of intelligence can lead to over-analysis - what is often referred to as ‘analysis paralysis’. Come hear our panel of Head types offer insights and stories related to helpful and not so helpful ways that this Center operates in their lives.
