McDowell Enneagram Conference 2017, Feb 9-11. Presented by The Institute for Conscious Being

AT THE FORK IN THE ROAD: Your Map to Conscious Living

We’ve all been at a fork in the road, a time when overwhelming decisions stand before us. Without spiritual guidance it can be hard to determine which path to take. Fortunately, there is a map to lead us closer to our Divine purpose on this earth, to becoming the people God created us to be. It’s called the Enneagram. The Enneagram is an ancient spiritual tool that provides a map of the flow of divine energy. It offers a spiritual pathway to the soul or the authentic self, and is a tremendously illuminating method to self-realization and consciousness.

Led by Joseph B. Howell, Ph.D., co-founder of The Institute for Conscious Being and author of Becoming Conscious: The Enneagram’s Forgotten Passageway, and ICB’s faculty, including The Rev. John Adams, Beverly Casey, Margaret Fleming, Brigid Galloway, Lark Howell, Dan Miller, Melanie Rodgers and Barbara Sloan.
