Enneagram Basics: Bridging The Esoteric To Teach The Theory To More People In Less Time

Most Enneagramers learned this insightful theory of personality by active participation in lengthy seminars. This has historically limited our audience to those willing to invest several days and considerable expense. This model of master-to-student total immersion favors searchers of esoteric wisdom ... but often alienates the casual learner. The essential components of the Enneagram are few and easy to [...]

Bridges and Trolls

Once upon a time, there was a bridge over a deep and treacherous ravine, guarded by a Troll. The Three Billy Goats Gruff wanted to cross this bridge to fields of abundant greenery.

Being with Discord, Reactivity and Resistance in Enneagram Community

Following the creative group euphoria that occurs in a new Enneagram Community, disenchantment is experienced. Community "cracks" develop when our personality dynamics arise with their assumptions, `shoulds,' and "have to's," and as our interactions with our instinctual drives lead us to perceive ourselves as "not getting something I want/need," or "not liking something." This is a painful place, accompanied [...]

Building Enneagram Communities that Last

Conscious growth requires three things: a teacher, the teachings, and a community. Do you have a community who supports your Enneagram work?
