The Enneagram and Creativity
Join registered professional counselor, coach, and musician Lindsay Robertson, and writer, performer, and director TJ Dawe as they address the Enneagram and how it relates to our creativity. One of the best tools for self-work is engaging in creative practice. The three instincts of the Enneagram provide a simple and practical template for how we can make the creative pursuit of our choice a regular part of our lives.
During this hopeful session, you'll discover:
- A summary of each of the three instincts
- How each instinct relates to a specific aspect of the creative process
- Specific practices you can use to access your creativity
