The Enneagram of Psychological Birth: Putting Mahler’s Model to Work for Spiritual Transformation

Abstract: The nine types of the Enneagram can be precisely correlated with the successive stages of Margaret Mahler's separationindividuation process. The psychological experiences at a given stage do not cause our type to form. Rather, our inborn type temperament predisposes us to experience a particularly vivid imprint at our type's corresponding stage of the developmental process. Looking closely at [...]

Toward the Neurobiology of the Enneagram

Abstract: Most accounts of the Enneagram describe relationships between each of the three major triads and the negative emotions of fear, anger, and sadness or social distress. This paper explores those relationships from a perspective that draws on contemporary scientific thinking in the fields of neurobiology, emotion, emotion regulation, and evolutionary biology. The hypothesis is that the structure of [...]

The Enneagram and Styles of Problem-Solving

Abstract: In this article the first results are shown of a research study on the relationship between Enneagram types and KAI scores.

With this research the authors try to explore the validity of these descriptions by using the KAI inventory in [...]

Enneagram Styles, Coaching, and the Use of Metaphor

Metaphor is perhaps one of man's most fruitful potentialities. Its efficacy verges on magic, and it seems a tool for creation which God left inside His creatures when He made them. -- Jose Ortega y Gasset Introduction: Alice's Lesson I learned young that you can't change someone's mind with linear logic. Alice taught me about how we are crazy. [...]

The 9 Dimensions of the Soul: Essence and the Enneagram

In his book, The 9 Dimensions of the Soul, David Hey organizes each chapter by describing the particular essence of that Enneagram style, the fixation, how we might experience that type in ourselves, how to recover the lost essence of that type, how to reintegrate that essence, how to go about healing the woundedness of that style, what that [...]

The Enneagram of Society: Healing the Soul to Heal the World

In the slim volume that is The Enneagram of Society, Claudio Naranjo accomplishes several profound and important tasks: he provides a concise, yet multi-faceted summation of the Enneagram's "passions," he reviews the circle of the nine basic characters associated with the passions, he provides a provocative account of the "disturbances of love" rendered by the nine personality patterns, and [...]

Awareness to Action: The Enneagram, Emotional Intelligence, and Change

Awareness to Action is not a "workbook" without depth and rigor, yet it is a practical book you can work with at work, in that it delivers on both understanding and application. It is not an interpretation of an interpretation of the Enneagram. It represents a new approach to the meaning of the points in a rich, clearly written, [...]

Happy-Go-Lucky

Director Mike Leigh's Happy-Go-Lucky (2008) is a highly enjoyable and useful character study of the path of development of a young Type Seven. The movie takes place in London, and centers around the life and maturation of a 30-yearold British school teacher named Poppy (played by Sally Hawkins, herself a likely Seven). Poppy's roommate Zoe (Alexis Zegerman) is probably [...]
