The 5 Personality Patterns Workshop

Understanding people this way is like having x-ray vision!


There are many maps of personality, but most of them map only the surface behaviors of each type. Character Structure starts at the core and explores how the patterned flow of energy through the body creates each type’s mental, emotional, and behavioral patterns. Using it, you can:

  • understand how someone assembles their world (“Why do they say those things?”)
  • speak to them so that they feel deeply seen and understood
  • know their deepest fears and how to make them feel safe
  • know what they need and how to help them get it
  • know how best to work with them in a therapy situation


During this fun, informative weekend, you will get a felt-sense, embodied experience of:

  • the 5 personality patterns
  • how each feels from the inside
  • which patterns you do
  • the light side — the gifts, talents and skills of each pattern
  • the dark side — the distortions, core wounds, and unfinished tasks of each pattern


Praise from past participants:
“Take it; this instructor is great.”
“Steven’s great.”
“This is simpler and more useful than the enneagram.”
