BOOK CLUB: Travels with Odysseus | September & October

AEA Book Club Conversation

Our passion for, and commitment to, building conscious community and assisting in the continuing personal development of our members has motivated us to create a new Social Outreach Club that we are certain you will love.

Two of the core values that the AEA is committed to are: Educating people about the Enneagram and the Expansion of Consciousness through Community Engagement. Our purpose for starting the AEA Book Club was to integrate these two objectives into an easily accessible platform for anyone who seeks to continue educating themselves about the Enneagram while engaging with other like-minded enthusiast in a safe and friendly environment.

Our first book club began in June and ended in July. The registration filled up within the first week and we had an amazing summer together. As a result of the book club’s success, we have created two new offerings for the fall of 2020.

The Book Club Conversation will be focused on building community through casual conversations around Michael Goldberg’s book, Travels with Odysseus.

The Book Study Intensive will be focused on growth and process work from Roxanne Howe-Murphy’s book, Deep Living with the Enneagram – Recovering Your True Nature. Click here to learn more about the Intensive.
