What is the Enneagram?

Understanding ourselves on a fundamental level offers access points for self-awareness, acceptance, compassion, and transformation. It also provides valuable insights for relationships: increasing compassion and understanding for others; helping to diagnose the root cause of behaviors and conflicts; and providing new directions for love, cooperation, and reconciliation.

The Enneagram is a personality typology system that provides both psychological and spiritual insights and tools for personal awareness, growth, and transformation. The Enneagram does not put you in a box, like many other typology systems, but instead shows you the box you are in and provides a map to moving out of your box into a more whole and healthy way of being, toward your essential self.

The Enneagram goes deeper than external behaviors to the core of who we are and our deepest desires, fears, and motivations. It illuminates our type’s unique ego patterns, strengths and weaknesses, shadow and light, virtues and vices.
