WHAT: Ramona Reid will be talking about Enneagram Personality Typing at The Wild Cow Vegetarian Restaurant this Tuesday. This is part of a series the restaurant will be hosting each month, in which an expert will come and speak about their area of expertise. The talk begins at 6p. The kitchen will be closed but the bar will be open (opening at 5:30p).The first talk is Tuesday, February 4th at 6pm (bar opens at 5:30).

As described here by Ramona:

The Enneagram is a personality typing system and so much more, incorporating traditional wisdom with modern psychology. It explains that we are one of 9 different personality types, with varying degrees of health inside each type, and unique “wings” and instinctual variants. It outlines how each type tends to deal with stress, conflict, matters of the heart, boundaries, work and social interactions. The Enneagram describes the box of personality that we have all learned to live inside, our rules of engagement and reactionary patterns, where our ego sabotages us and where we place value…. And then it allows for a path out of that box, a disintegration of the walls of personality and integration into our highest selves.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 4, 5:30p – 7:30p

Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) joins his droid allies R2-D2 and C-3PO, along with Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), to free his comrade Han Solo (Harrison Ford), imprisoned by the vile crime lord, Jabba the Hutt. Reunited, the Rebels race to the moon of the planet Endor where they launch a desperate attack upon the entire Imperial Fleet. But the ultimate battle is between father and son, as Luke faces Darth Vader one last time, for the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance. © 2019 & TM LUCASFILM LTD. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ©DISNEY
