The Enneagram: A Framework for Transformational Development

The Enneagram is an extraordinary framework for transformational development. A multi-dimensional model of consciousness, the Enneagram equips each of us with a highly precise and accurate roadmap for discerning our life purpose and embodying our fullest potential.

"Ennea” comes from the Ancient Greek word ennéa, which means “nine.” “Gram” comes from the Greek term grammos, which means "chart." The Enneagram image is of a circle with nine points interconnected along the circle's circumference and by inner lines that form a triangle and a hexad.

At its most basic level then, the Enneagram is a 9-pointed chart of
you, of me, and of how we each tend to perceive
and thus interact with ourselves, our world, and one another.

A Map of You

Learning about your Enneagram Personality Type (represented by one of the nine points on the Enneagram) offers you guidance in uncovering your core, often unconscious, motivators as well as your inborn gifts and life purpose. Learning your Type, however, is just the beginning!

More than a map of personality, the Enneagram helps you to see how the lens of your personality identification can distort the way you perceive and thus relate to yourself, others, and the world at large. It helps you to cultivate presence, which is vital not only to personal fulfillment and inner peace but also, for those on the spiritual path, to opening to the sacred. The Enneagram supports you in embodying your highest potential.

The Enneagram stands out from other personality typing systems in that it does not attempt to put people into a box; rather, it names the often-transparent sphere of attitudes, feelings, and behaviors that we each tend to orbit and help us to enlarge the possibilities for our lives.

A Map of Us

What is extraordinary about the Enneagram is that the relationship of the points to one another reveals how individuals of different Type biases tend to relate to individuals of other Types.

When the Enneagram is studied as a whole system, it can help couples, families, organizations, and businesses to cultivate more vibrant, collaborative, and co-creative relationships internally and with the world at large.

The Enneagram as a map of our interrelatedness helps us to better understand, embrace, and work with differences. Ultimately, we come to appreciate how differences in others are a vital part of serving the whole.

I have been studying the Enneagram for nearly 30 years. For the first time, I have found someone, Rev. Nhiên, who has the unique ability, in her writing and teaching, to integrate the disciplines of spirituality, psychology, anthropology, theology, and the truths of the Enneagram into a beautiful and cohesive expression by which persons can be transformed. I am extremely thankful for Rev. Nhiên. She is amazingly profound!
