The Enneagram.

A glimpse of how and why we do the things we do...

The Enneagram: a system for developing more full and meaningful lives and healthier relationships at home, at work, and in the world.


The Enneagram gives us a glimpse into why we (and others) do what we do. It’s a resource that provides a glimpse of the myriad ways that we trip ourselves up each and every day…and an invitation and map to change those patterns of behaviour that keep us “stuck.” Combined with Deep Life methodology, the psychological and spiritual teachings of the Enneagram allow clients and students and teams an opportunity to deepen their awareness of self- and relationship-defeating thoughts and behaviors, develop a willingness to discover and engage in new habits, and engage in practices that allow for more full and meaningful lives and healthier relationships at home, at work, and in the world.

At Deep Life, we use the Enneagram in the workplace:


–to develop strong, authentic leaders who connect with and draw out the best of the people around them. Our integral, Enneagram-based development coaching programs are designed to fit each client’s goals. Programs range from three months to one year in length.

–as a way for teams, boards, congregations and committees to recognize the individual gifts and challenges of each member and the collective gifts and challenges of the group as a whole. Engaging with the Enneagram as a team allows for healthier communication and collaboration practices in the workplace…and can unleash a sense of creativity, curiosity, and connection as well. Team development experiences range from one- or two-day events to a series of events over the course of a year. 

We also use the Enneagram to support individuals committed to living whole and holy, interdependent and creative lives.


The Center for Courageous Living offers The Retreat, The Practice and other events and opportunities so that folks of all walks of life can engage with the Enneagram (and other conversations) can be supported in the art of living with and on purpose. 


Peter McGaugh and Angie Arendt are certified Enneagram instructors, authorized to teach with The Enneagram Institute. They have developed their own method of working with this ancient/modern system after working with thousands of people throughout North America over the past ten years: from individuals attending weekend workshops to on-going work with executive and team development in international corporations. Their experience has led them to believe that the Enneagram is much more than a personality typing tool: it is a resource for human growth and connection in every arena of life.
