Self awareness is key to personal growth and change. The magic lies in how the enneagram offers a framework to better understand the “why” behind your actions AND those around you. During this session, we will do a deep dive into how to use the enneagram to promote self-discovery, provide feedback and improve teaming at work and at home.
In this interactive group session, led by Dr. Akshata Hopkins and artist Melanie Grein, you’ll learn how art can be used to tap into unexplored creative spaces of your brain. Through different media, this hands-on class will make art approachable and fun. No experience is necessary and all supplies will be provided.
