1.  ENNEAGRAM COURSE.  17th February 2018, 9am-3.30pm. Cost $45 per person.  Ever wondered about what this analysis of personality has to teach you? Join with others in self-reflection regarding your particular personality style, and how might this affect your way of being in the workplace, in the world and in your relationships with others.  The Enneagram is a model of the human psyche which is principally understood and taught as a typology of nine interconnected personality types. In business contexts it is generally used as a typology to gain insights into workplace dynamics; in spirituality it is presented as a path to higher states of being, essence, and enlightenment. It has been described as a method for self-understanding and self-development.  Please sign the list at reception.

2.  ST LUKE’S BIKE RIDE 3-4th MARCH 2018.  PAIHIA TO THE HOKIANGA.  The ride involves staying in Paihia night of Friday 2nd March then cycling as a group between Paihia and Kaikohe on Saturday, and Kaikohe to the Hokianga harbour on Sunday.  Bus to and from start and finish points each day. Can return back to Auckland Sunday evening. Each day is 40km. Almost all of the ride is flat. Details of the ride on https://www.nzcycletrail.com/trails/twin-coast-trail/.  Due to need to book the bus well in advance, bookings have to be confirmed by end of December, plus the cost of bus for both days which is $100 in total.  You will need to arrange you own accommodation in /around Pahia for both nights.
