Dante, Florence, and the Enneagram 2017

Suor Oblate Convent, Borgo Pinti - Florence, Italy

Discovering the Enneagram in Dante’s “Divine Comedy”– the Path from Fixation to Freedom

Over four days in the centre of historic Florence we’ll journey through the nine circles of the Inferno, the seven terraces of Purgatory, and the nine spheres of Paradise as Dante shows us the path toward personal and spiritual growth in his timeless literary masterpiece.

This in-depth exploration of the Enneagram through the work of Dante and his remarkable poem will take the form of lectures, group discussion and experiential work. There will also be a guided tours of places associated with Dante’s life and the action of the Comedy such as Santa Croce, and we will visit Casa di Dante -Dante’s house in Florence.
Knowledge of the Enneagram and your own type is a requirement. (An introductory course to the Enneagram will be held in Dublin from time to time.)
Accommodation will be provided at the Suor Oblate convent, a simple town villa which expands behind a typically simple Florentine entrance, presenting grand spaces, over several floors with good sized rooms and common areas all beautifully maintained with antique furnishing, peaceful guest spaces & a beautiful Italian renaissance garden. It’s a great location in the heart of this famous Italian city with lots of restaurants nearby which offer food to suit all palates.
