|This is the first book to offer specific, practical methods for
psychological and spiritual growth to each of the nine personality
types. It integrates precise knowledge of the nine types with wisdom
teachings from a variety of spiritual sources around the world, including
Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Sufism, and Fourth Way Teachings.
This book presents the Enneagram as "a map of the soul," laying out
the path each type can take from the outer layers of the personality
to the inner core of its True Nature. Most importantly, Wisdom demonstrates
how the Enneagram can be used to develop Presence and awareness, without
which, meaningful spiritual development is not possible.
For those new to the system, The Wisdom of the Enneagram provides
comprehensive, easy-to-understand explanations of the Enneagram, as
well as two highly accurate questionnaires (the QUEST & the TAS) for
determining your type. More advanced readers will find a wealth of
innovative material, including dozens of type-specific "Inner Work
Sessions," a complete treatment of the 27 Instinctual
Variants (subtypes), awareness practices that will help each type
develop "The Enneagram of Letting Go," a deeper explanation of the
three Centers, and much more.
All readers will learn to:
Highly accessible, in an open, inviting format, yet filled with sophisticated
concepts and techniques found nowhere else.
- Understand the issues and inner logic of their type
- Recognize their type's "Wake-Up Call," "Red Flag," and other
- Let go of troublesome, self-defeating habits and reactions
- Understand each type's unconscious motivations and defenses
- Develop the strengths inherent in their type
The Wisdom of the Enneagram, is an invaluable new contribution to
Enneagram work and shows the importance of the system to everyone
who is interested in personal growth and transformation.
