Another way to think about an Enneagram style is as a kind of narrative. Our personality trance is held together by a story we tell ourselves, and the main skill we practice within our Enneagram style is storytelling. In popular psychology, these stories are called”scripts,”although the Enneagram describes them in a deeper way.

Each Enneagram style is anchored by metaphorical images that drive the style’s preoccupation. The kind of image you have partially dictates the story you are prone to living, with all its strengths and drawbacks.

In this session, Tom will demonstrate how to elicit and transform these unconscious metaphors as well as discover your own driving metaphors and those of other styles.
