Have you noticed the nuances of types when you compare a female and a male of a given type? And what about those identifying as gender neutral. Society may impose expectations for men and women – how is that reflected in Enneagram Types? In this meeting we will examine all nine types and how they may be stereo-typed to be male or female.



This is the second meeting in our Enneagram & Intimacy Series which addresses how the Enneagram can be valuable to understanding love, intimacy, and sexuality.

Group leader Paul Paiva will be joined by Shani Jones to co-facilitate this discussion.
