A Presentation on Personality Types

Facilitator: Fr Brendan O’Rourke, C.Ss.R. will facilitate two evenings on the above topic

Fr. Brendan O Rourke

 “Understanding ourselves and others adds richness to our lives, helps us to accept ourselves better, and also lets us figure out why some people are so different from us!  During these two evenings we will explore personality types based on the work of psychologist Carl Jung. 
Each type of personality has value!  
In the first evening we will complete a question / answer sheet which will help us determine our own personality type.”

The Enneagram Part 2

 Fr.-Benny-McHale-225x300The Enneagram Part 2 takes place on two consecutive Sundays: November 19th and 26th 2017.

Facilitator: Fr. Benny McHale will lead the Workshop.

The Enneagram Part 2 is a follow on from Enneagram 1.  The Enneagram Part 2 provides a deeper understanding of ourselves and our compulsions that limit our freedom and dynamism in relating to God and others.
We need support in unmasking our “False Self” and distancing ourselves from our delusions. Fr. Benny deals with this issue and helps us see our compulsive blindness and how we are acting at cross purposes with our best interests.
He explains how to flow with our gift and integrate with our shadow and failure.
The Enneagram helps us to let go of what only seems good in order to discover what is really good – our Soul and our True Self.

Dates: November 19th and 26th 2016.  
Time: 2.00 – 7.00 p.m.
