The Franciscan Spirituality Center offers an upcoming opportunity to explore personality styles for greater self-awareness, better communication skills and improved relationships.

FSC staff members Audrey Lucier and Steve Spilde will present “Increase Your Emotional Intelligence with the Enneagram” April 8-9.

Through the Enneagram, a nine-sided figure that maps out core personality styles and how they are related, participants will consider the resourceful and less-resourceful strategies of their style, the three centers of decision-making and ways to balance their personality by developing other styles in their Enneagram profile.

Understanding the strengths, motivations and blind spots of each style can lead to better relationships at home and work, as well as more compassion for others who view the world differently, the presenters say.

The retreat takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday. The cost is $95, which includes lunch and dinner on Saturday. An overnight stay in a private FSC bedroom may be reserved for an additional $42.

Familiarity with the Enneagram is required to participate.

An optional “Introduction to the Enneagram” session is available from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, April 8, for anyone unsure of their style. The cost is $45.
