 Know Yourself with Enneagram Retreat 

For Actors, Writers & Makers
"The Enneagram Retreat was nothing short of life-changing.
Hen & Steph's nurturing approach helped me feel safe to explore parts of my personality that previously seemed hidden or opaque. 
It left me with a lasting confidence in my ability to be more present in my work and my relationships."

What is "Know Yourself with Enneagram"?

To understand your mind and the thought process of others we use The Enneagram. The Enneagram is a powerful model for understanding the archetypal patterns of human nature. A blend of modern psychology and ancient insights, it has profound depth, and can be thought of as a developmental map of 9 interconnected personality types. 


This collaborative retreat blends Stephanie’s exceptional skills in coaching and developing creative professionals, with Henrie’s deep study and long experience of applying and teaching The Enneagram. This deep and gentle journey will give you a richer understanding of yourself, and your creative process. It will also ease stress and can transform even long-standing blocks, and insecurities.  It will allow you to dive deeply in to the psyche of characters, whether you are writing them, playing them, directing or creating them.

The Benefits


Increased Self-Awareness

The Enneagram provides a detailed map of nine different personality types, each with its own patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. By identifying your Enneagram type, you gain deep insights into your habitual tendencies, motivations, fears, and desires. This heightened self-awareness is a crucial first step towards being present in the moment.


Breaking Automatic Patterns

Many people operate on autopilot, reacting to situations based on ingrained habits and conditioned responses. The Enneagram sheds light on these automatic patterns by highlighting the specific ways each personality type tends to react. With this awareness, individuals can interrupt and break free from these automatic responses, making room for more conscious and intentional choices.


Understanding Core Motivations:

The Enneagram goes beyond surface-level behaviors and helps individuals understand the core motivations driving their actions. Recognizing these underlying motivations allows individuals to be more mindful of their choices and responses, fostering a greater sense of presence as they navigate various situations.


Managing Stress and Anxiety

The Enneagram not only identifies each type's strengths but also highlights their specific challenges and stress points. By understanding how stress manifests for your Enneagram type, you can develop strategies to manage anxiety and stay present in challenging situations. This self-awareness contributes to emotional resilience.


Embracing Mindfulness Practices

The Enneagram encourages the practice of mindfulness, emphasising the importance of staying present no matter what comes up. We'll explore mindfulness techniques and breath awareness to help individuals ground themselves in the present and observe their thoughts and emotions without judgment.


Compassion for Self and Others

The Enneagram fosters empathy and compassion by revealing the diversity of personality types and the unique challenges each type faces. As individuals gain a better understanding of their own struggles and those of others, they can approach themselves and others with greater compassion, leading to more authentic and present interactions.


Integration of Growth Paths

The Enneagram not only identifies personality types but also outlines paths of growth and integration for each type. Engaging in the work of personal development and following the growth path specific to your type facilitates a journey towards becoming a more balanced, present, and whole individual.


Mind-Body Connection

The Enneagram recognises that personality is not solely a mental construct but is also expressed through the body. Paying attention to bodily sensations and understanding how emotions manifest physically can contribute to a more integrated mind-body connection, promoting a holistic sense of presence.
