AEA Meetup December 14, 2017

AEA Meetup You might wonder, “What is a “Meetup?” Wikipedia of course has an excellent definition: “Meetup is an online social networking portal that facilitates offline group meetings in various localities around the world. Meetup allows members to find and join groups unified by a common interest.” Each month a different topic will be explored. Gifts of the Enneagram led by Jaye Andres and Sunil Ahuja Join us and learn about the gifts of the Types. We all know the Enneagram is a great tool for working through patterns that hold us back from experiencing a full, free life. But it also teaches us about our strengths. Often, we have a harder time seeing those. What better time than the Christmas season to shine a light on the unique gifts we all bring to the world simply by being who we are. Then we would like to open the room to a conversation about your experiences and discuss: 1. What impact has participating in the AEA community/events had on your life: what gifts has it brought you? 2. What more would you like to know about the Enneagram? What topics can we address in future meetups and workshops? And since it is the Holiday Season, we thought some social time for the members to get to know each other would round off the evening. Light refreshments will add to the party segment. Jaye Andres and Sunil Ahuja will facilitate the conversation. Look forward to seeing you all for an interesting and entertaining evening! Biographies:  Jaye Andres, MBA, is a certified Enneagram professional and Executive Director of the Arizona Enneagram Association. Jaye is also a “founding mother”, past president and Emeritus Director of the Arizona Enneagram Association. As a life coach, consultant and workshop facilitator, her passion is to assist others in raising their self-awareness and move past limiting beliefs & habits to live a fuller, freer, richer and more peaceful life. Sunil Ahuja is the meetup organizer, and an AEA board member. Sunil, the founder of Integral Transformation Systems, is a development trainer, consultant, and coach. His work focuses on the development of individual capacity across multiple intelligences: cognitive, emotional and spiritual. Save the date for our next upcoming AEA Meetup: January 18- The 9 Shades of Shame and the Enneagram led by Linda Kriesel February 15- 5 Paths to Love Language led by Renee Siegel The Meetups are open to all of our members, those who know about the Enneagram, those who would like to know more, and to those who are brought by a friend.

AEA 2018 Spring Workshop | An Enneagram Odyssey: Journey Beyond the Story of your Type with Michael Goldberg | April 21-22, 2018

AEA 2018 Spring Workshop | An Enneagram Odyssey: Journey Beyond the Story of your Type with Michael Goldberg | April 21-22, 2018

An Enneagram Odyssey: Journey Beyond the Story of your Type Special Guests: Michael Goldberg “Every journey has a secret destination of which the traveler is unaware.” –Martin Buber Deeply rooted in ancient tradition, the ennea-types are stories that we tell ourselves and each other about how we make our place in the world and what really matters. Ultimately, these stories are about finding our way Home, to who we really are and what we may become. These stories have been told since the earliest days. In Homer’s Odyssey, Odysseus meets each of the 9 types in numerical order. With precision, wit and affection, Homer cuts to the heart of type. In this highly interactive workshop, we retell The Odyssey, along with other teaching stories from myth and tradition, for their unconventional insight into how our ennea-type comes to be, and what to do should you “get one.” Participants will take away a fresh look at the patterns of type; a compelling take on the ennea-types as stories which create deep connection to the life of each type; and a framework to engage this perspective for oneself and as teachers and guides for others. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience with the Enneagram. No prior familiarity with myth is necessary. Michael Goldberg has taught the Enneagram worldwide for thirty years. He is the author of The 9 Ways of Working and Travels with Odysseus. He consults with the Enneagram to organizations including the Central Intelligence Agency, Honeywell, South African Airways, and TopHuman (China). He has been on over a hundred television and radio programs, including Fox News Channel, CNN, CBC (Canada) and ABC (Australia.) Michael has taught at graduate schools of law, management and psychology. He was an attorney at the now famous US Office of Government Ethics. EVENT DETAILS When: April 21-22, 2018 Time: 9:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m. Where: Paradise Valley United Methodist Church 4455 E. Lincoln Drive, Paradise Valley, AZ 85253 Room: H1  Please go to the upper part of the H building on the west side.

AEA SPECIAL TOPIC: 9 Paths Through the Eyes of Love with Renee Siegel on June 16, 2018

9 Paths Through the Eyes of Love Special Guest: Renee Siegel Each of us yearns to be heard, understood and loved. Each of the Enneagram Types may demonstrate these needs differently. In order to get these needs met, we will explore each of the Types ways of attempting to get these needs met. Topics explored will include foundational self-awareness and self-love, unconditional positive regard, loveology and 9 paths through the 5 love languages. In this workshop you will learn: How to identify blind spots and triggers in their communication style. How to identify how their Type has both assets and challenges in getting their needs met for being heard, understood and loved. How to identify one of their love languages. Renee Siegel has been an integrative wellness provider for over 35 years. She was originally educated as a Marriage and Family therapist and began to question why people hold onto their patterns of thoughts, feelings, behaviors and illnesses. She is a licensed mental health counselor, licensed massage therapist and certified holistic healthcare practitioner. She was introduced to the Enneagram almost 10 years ago and it was “love at first sight and a game changer”. Since that time she has been an avid student of the enneagram. She specialized in 3 areas in using the enneagram: • Integrating Wellness Practices into Treatment • Improving Relationships both personally and professionally • Recovery from Substance and Process Addictions Renee has finished filming an addiction series where she has interviewed all nine types, each having both a substance and process addiction. She describes the enneagram as the “blueprint for health one can utilize when understanding the underlying energetic patterns that distract us from our journey in returning to wholeness.” EVENT DETAILS | REGISTER When: Saturday, June 16, 2018 Time: 9:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m. Where: Paradise Valley United Methodist Church 4455 E.
