As the Enneagram becomes more and more relevant and widespread in business and organizational settings, many Enneagram professionals are grappling with the challenge of languaging a secular, non-spiritual, commercially appealing Enneagram. How do we present Enneagram material in secular and business environments, as distinct from a metaphysical or psycho-spiritual growth context? How do we define ‘spirituality’ for our purposes? Can the Enneagram be utilized without reference to spirituality altogether?
Does doing so gut it of its inherent power and original intent? Panelists will also explore ‘best practices’ for using neutral language to introduce the Enneagram to secular and business groups while maintaining the integrity of the system.
