Gain insights into your relationship dynamics through the Enneagram, and discover how you can relate better and hurt less by developing greater openness, acceptance, and compassion.


We spend so much of our lives relating to others — our families, friends, colleagues, and neighbors — that, even if you spend most of your time at home, you’re likely connecting with others on a daily basis.

In these many relationships, we may encounter misunderstandings or challenges that can trigger us to behave in ways that don’t serve us or those we love. During such conflicts, if we don’t take the time to pause and give ourselves space before reacting, we may say or do something we regret.

What could our relationships look like if we gave ourselves permission to better understand ourselves and our loved ones before we acted on our impulses? 

According to personality coaches Suzanne Dion and Sean Palmer, the Enneagram is a profound tool that not only helps you understand your own personality type better, you can use it to understand more deeply the challenging experiences in your relationships. 

On Saturday, June 4, Suzanne and Sean will show you how to use the Enneagram to achieve a greater understanding of yourself and your loved ones. You’ll discover how it can help you relate to them better — and bridge the gaps between yourself and those you love by achieving a broader acceptance of yourself and others.

The Enneagram is an ancient tool that illuminates nine primary personality types. It offers a path to wholeness, integrity, and compassion by helping you unearth your true essence and deepening your intuition. 

Enneagram insights can shed light on elements of your personality that you may not be aware of — those parts of yourself that are easily triggered in challenging situations and create default behavioral patterns that may disservice you or those you love. 

Suzanne and Sean believe that the Enneagram is a powerful tool for building healthier, more stable, and more loving relationships. It not only helps you understand others’ triggers and difficult behaviors, it can show you how you may be projecting your own fears and insecurities onto someone else.

In this thought-provoking event, Suzanne and Sean will teach you a method for responding to other people and life situations that can create space for understanding — without compromising your own truth or shrinking yourself to appease someone else.   


In this empowering online event, you’ll:

  • Experience a guided exercise using the 5 A’s (Awareness, Acceptance, Appreciation, Action, and Adherence), designed to help you explore a recent or current disagreement and gain new perspectives
  • Unlock how working with the Enneagram can help you bridge the gaps between you and those you love
  • Discover the steps to take during conflicts so you can acknowledge and manage your default patterns and emotions — and how to create space and grace for others’ patterns and emotions
  • Gain tools to give yourself permission to interact with yourself and others with more compassion, truth, and acceptance
  • Explore ways to move through the world with a less defensive posture to free yourself from projections and assumptions

When you gain clarity about your true inner self and those around you — and know what your default patterns are —  you can change how you behave in your relationships. 

Suzanne and Sean have helped countless individuals work with the Enneagram to develop their emotional literacy and improve their relationships through learning the 5 A’s — and knowing how and when to take space to gain greater clarity and awareness before reacting to triggers. 

When you join Suzanne and Sean for this heart-opening event, you’ll discover that there’s hope, and that you can change your relationships to be more compassionate, understanding, and in alignment with your greatest desires for peace, health, and happiness.
