We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
The theme of the conference is "Together we get the difference".
Not many communities get and value the depth, importance and gift of our being different in the way that the Enneagram community does. It's through our contrasts that we shine the most, it's how we appreciate the value that each and everyone of us bring to the world. And it's also how we can grow as individuals when we see and are inspired how others approach life and its many challenges and joys.
The Scandinavian conference committee is excited to have this opportunity to show how we can work together and make the best of our differences at this regional conference. We're people from Sweden, Norway and Denmark and we're all working hard for you to have a great conference.
We promise to keep you updated on the latest events and we encourage you to sign up for the news as they develop.
Please - come to Stockholm in September, 2020 and show the rest of the world how we not only get the difference but how we also make the most of it.

Pre-conference day -
3 September, 2020:
Horizontal and Vertical Methods of Change
Tom and Russ will offer a special workshop applying knowledge of the Enneagram to personal transformation. The workshop will explore two different directions to change and development - Horizontal and Vertical.
Horizontal Change focuses on developing new skills—personal, professional, and relational; acquiring different behaviors, practices and ways of solving real world problems. We learn to strengthen our inner resources to help us lead more satisfying, successful and complete lives.
Vertical Change is about arriving at a deeper understanding of who we really are—realizing we are different and much more than our personality and self-concept. We discover many unsuspected capacities, but also how we are driven by largely unconscious patterns.
Vertical development asks that we dive deep below our usual threshold of awareness, to discover and loosen the feelings, energies and core experiences that hold our Enneagram patterns in place.
Russ and Tom will offer powerful methods to relax the grip of these unconscious holding patterns, to evoke and amplify your direct sensory experience of presence and essence.
