About Me

What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram is a system of nine personality types that combines traditional wisdom and modern psychology into a powerful tool for understanding ourselves and the people in our lives. All nine personality types are equal and the highs and lows of human development can be found in every type. The Enneagram offers a map of the human personality and can be used to guide us back towards our “essential self.” Our “essential self” is unique and cannot be reduced by a type or category.

We have distinguished between a man as he is in essence, and as he is in ego or personality. In essence, every person is perfect, fearless, and in loving unity with the entire cosmos; there is no conflict within the person between head, heart, and stomach or between the person and others. Then something happens: the ego begins to develop, karma accumulates, there is a transition from objectivity to subjectivity; man falls from essence into personality.

Benefits

Working with the Enneagram can help us become more successful in our relationships at home and at work. The Enneagram helps us to understand our own patterns, habitual responses and blindspots. By identifying the psychological and emotional defenses specific to our Enneagram type opportunities for personal growth and healing can occur. Working with the Enneagram helps us to see how our attachment to our personality cuts us off from our essential self, from our connection to Spirit.
