About the Enneagram
Why the Enneagram?
The enneagram is a tool for understanding who we are and how we operate in the world. It can help us come to deeper realizations that seem simple, but can actually be quite profound:
- Each of us is unique, and yet, we are not alone.
- Others operate from a perspective quite different from our own.
- We each have great gifts we can bring to one another.
- Our gifts have a shadow side that can hurt ourselves and others if we are not aware of it.
As we come to a greater understanding of our similarities and our differences, we can find greater efficacy and harmony with one another. As we befriend our own strengths and weaknesses, we can find greater peace and passion within ourselves.
What is the Enneagram?
The enneagram outlines nine primary personality types (ennea means 9) and their interrelationships with one another. It is a system with nuance and complexity. It describes how we are influenced by one of the two adjacent styles (wings), how we move ourselves towards other styles in stress and in rest, how we default to one of three decision-making centers (heart-head-gut), and how we can recognize our movements towards healthy and unhealthy states.
