The Enneagram: Accepting the Ways You Are
Sometimes who you are is hard to see. We can help you get a sense of yourself and how you are in the world with yourself and with others.
The Enneagram is an ancient way of understanding yourself and others that can lead to a deeper understanding of how you do you in the world. It is a way of developing more compassion for the ego’s struggles and how it shows up, with its unique gifts and unique struggles. The Enneagram has ancient roots in Christian, Greek, and Sufi traditions. The Enneagram sees human personality in terms of 9 constellations, or types; the word “ennea” means “nine” in Greek.
“To know oneself is, above all, to know what one lacks. It is to measure oneself against Truth, and not the other way around. The first product of self-knowledge is humility,” – Flannery O’Connor

“Thanks so much for the wonderful job you did as leader/facilitator of our Enneagram class. It was most enlightening, and I am sure that no one left unchanged (if they weren’t, they must have sleeping). As I said, I would be very interested in learning more/going deeper into this fascinating tool for understanding both self and others. So please let me know when there are opportunities for further exploration in the future.
Although I am not sure what John Calvin would think of the Enneagram, the opening words of his magnum opus, Institutes of the Christian Religion, speak directly to how it can help in the journey of faith. “Without knowledge of self, there is no knowledge of God.”
Peace and blessing to you and yours”
