Do you love to read!? Then we would love for you to join the Vend Raleigh Book Club! One thing we have heard over and over from our community is that they love our live events, but they also really enjoy cuddling up with a good book as a way to learn and a bit of self-care time too. Our very own Kristen Bagwell will be hosts our monthly book club where we will focus on books that directly relate to our monthly education topic.


"Road Back to You : An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery" by Ian Morgan Cron
December Book Club
Thursday, December 17th at Noon via Zoom

Ignorance is bliss―except in self-awareness. What you don't know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships―and even keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you're stuck in the same ruts? The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. In The Road Back to You Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile forge a unique approach―a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God. Witty and filled with stories, this book allows you to peek inside each of the nine Enneagram types, keeping you turning the pages long after you have read the chapter about your own number. Not only will you learn more about yourself, but you will also start to see the world through other people's eyes, understanding how and why people think, feel, and act the way they do. Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help take you further along into who you really are―leading you into places of spiritual discovery you would never have found on your own, and paving the way to the wiser, more compassionate person you want to become.
