What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram is a geometric figure that maps out the nine fundamental personality types of human nature and their complex interrelationships. One of the profound lessons … is that psychological integration and spiritual realization are not separate processes … the Enneagram is neither dry psychology nor fuzzy mysticism but a tool for transformation that uses the clarity and insight of psychology as a point of entry into a profound and universal spirituality.
— Don Riso and Russ Hudson in The Wisdom of the Enneagram

The Enneagram is a development of modern psychology with deep roots in spiritual wisdom. It is a pyscho-spiritual tool to help you increase your self-knowledge and uncover your true self or essential nature. The Enneagram is a system of understanding personality that teaches emotional intelligence and helps us expand our relationship skills. It is a map that describes nine different personality types and it improves our understanding of ourselves and others by describing specific patterns of thought, emotion, attention and behavior. The Enneagram explains the internal structure and underlying motivation, the core beliefs and fears, which drive each of the personality types. Finding your personality type is a fascinating journey of self-discovery which can be helpful in every area of your life. 

Working with the Enneagram helps individuals to develop greater self-awareness and self-acceptance. It is a powerful method to help people learn and grow and it can make a positive impact on a person’s relationships, both personal and professional. Reaching farther and deeper than mere personality tests, the Enneagram is a useful tool that is being used in coaching, psychotherapy, spiritual direction and business.

“A fundamental brilliance inherent in the Enneagram system is that it invites each of us to enter a particular path of healing and integration.” – Roxanne Howe-Murphy
