Enneagram Workshop with Ann Gadd @ Ann Gadd House
Sep 16 all-day

Have you always wanted to know WHY you act the way you do?

This is your opportunity to find out. The amazing Ann Gadd is doing an Enneagram workshop, and bookings is also available to the students and followers of Lifeart Studio and School. 

Ann will be doing the workshop from her home in Blouberg. This is the perfect opportunity for those who always wanted to be on the ‘inside ‘ of the artists house.

For those that don’t know what that is…It is a way to look at your personality and see what personality type you are, and how you function within different environments, including your art, work, social and personal choices.  The Enneagram defines nine personality types (sometimes referred to as “enneatypes”), which are represented by the points of a geometric figure called an enneagram which, it is believed, also indicate some of the connections between the types. 

Cost includes lunch and notes.
