The Enneagram is a powerful and dynamic system that gives insight into how the human personality can serve as a pathway for cooperation with grace that fulfills our God-given potential rather than limiting us to self-serving or destructive patterns.
The Enneagram describes nine distinct and fundamentally different patterns of thinking, feeling and acting. It illuminates what motivates us, what basic coping strategies we adopt to survive and thrive and what causes our relationships to flourish or flounder. Each of the nine personality types also provides a specific spiritual path for personal development and enrichment, for discovering one’s own highest qualities and potentials.
