Date Tue, 10/6/2020
Location Online - register to receive the event link.
Time 6:30 - 8:30pm Mountain Time


Trent Thornley will be our guest speaker. Paul Paiva, group leader, will interview Trent and be facilitator of a candid discussion about sexuality using the Enneagram as a tool for journeying in this complex area.

Only a portion of people are committed to growing to their fullest human potential. Some of these will attempt to fully embrace their sexuality and attempt to grow in self-understanding through their intimate and sexual relationships.

In every type-pairing, there are natural blessings and natural challenges. The Enneagram can be a Personal Growth Tool in this endeavor, even in the area of human sexuality.
