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.

KPCC Therapist Will Messer leads Enneagram workshops in what is called “The Narrative Tradition.” Rather than take a test to see how you relate to the system, the narrative tradition encourages group conversations, leading us to notice how people show up in the world in different but sometimes predictable ways.

“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
