The Enneagram helped me to get in touch with my inner territory, my inner landscape, and to understand people around me better. The Enneagram gave me my life back, it gave me my smile back. Because these are things that I had lost along the way. Rania Hussein interview in Enneagram Insights podcast Rania
What’s so profound about the Enneagram is not just the behaviors and attitudes that we may have. It’s what’s going on underneath the waterline. I use an iceberg model, and what’s above that’s visible is what we might most connect with. Underneath are those deeper levels of motivation and hurt. The inner critic really comes
The journey between knowing myself, thinking that I was a type and then going and discovering that I’m another type made me realize a lot of things about my childhood. It made me see a lot of sides of myself that I didn’t see before. I couldn’t see because I was basically hiding them, hiding behind
I’ve spoken to quite a few people who have changed their perception or who have changed the satisfaction of their sex life, not by changing anything in their sex life, but by changing the way they communicate with their partner, the way that they talk about their needs and their desires. Frederik Coene is a
When I can learn to be aware of my patterns in the here and now, Don Riso and I call this catching ourselves in the act in “the Wisdom of the Enneagram”. When we can keep doing that, those reactions don’t get the same grip. And so when they come up, there’s a little
The Enneagram work certainly can have an effect on the personality, but it’s really about working on a deeper part of us. When we’re looking at what the Enneagram is originally intended to develop, it’s more about the development of essence. It’s soul work. It’s like the raw material of what we are born with
Can Integral Coaching and the Enneagram help us live more full Lives? James Flaherty and Russ Hudson
The Enneagram is a way of customizing what will help us develop. There’s so many things we could pay attention to in our mind, in our emotions, in our postures. But some things are going to be more useful. Some things are going to give us leverage for opening up possibilities. And that’s what Integral
As I sit here 50 some years later and I see all the things that have been added to the Enneagram, I’m glad for the excitement and I’m glad for the application of new insight. But is all this necessary or are we simply obfuscating a very healthy way of looking at human personality? Patrick
I had prior, as an Enneagram 8, which is the type I’m leading with, I had said: I don’t know, people that are afraid, I don’t know what that means. But that all came in as a perfect storm. And I learned the hard way how you don’t go towards change. I suddenly had no
Dr. Deborah Ooten: I asked Tato Gomez: “ So what’s your type?” Back then I said, what is your type rather than what’s your fixation. And he said: “One through nine.” And I thought, oh, my God, you are so right. So if we take the law of one, the circle, that says it all.
The blindness neglects part of me, part of my type. So if I work on my blindness in my blind type, I will actually create openings in my primary type because my blind type has negative assumptions that are holding my primary type down or back. Your blind type would be qualities that you do
The Enneagram is about accepting your blind spots. Actually seeing what is preventing you from a real life. For me it’s like taking my type and putting it aside a little bit. And see how is life like when my type is not running the show all the time. But I have to accept part
I think of myself as an Enneagram Activist now. Because I looked at the state of the world. And as an American, and as a black American, I look at what is happening, not just in this country, but really around the world, where people are marginalized for the color of their skin. I looked
We’re nature too. Sometimes I have to go out in nature to remember that. It’s like a subconscious way of letting things find their way. I have a tendency to force things: I want to be a good father. I want to be a good partner. I want to be fair. But when I walk
I saw that all the Enneagram teachers, we were inviting students to learn about the Enneagram for personal growth. But I didn’t see much of it. Let’s say for a type eight, it’s pointing towards type two – try with a little humility and empathy that would help you. But the change is really difficult.

He talks to Flemming Christensen about how the Enneagram found him. And how the Enneagram for him is a tool for awakening. This is a conversation about
The Enneagram is telling us that If I’m in a real connection with myself, I will be more in a real connection with you. The Enneagram in its original sense was an invitation back to living in our deeper heart, and to be really embodied in our deeper mind. Russ Hudson on Presence and
Awareness, Presence and Relationships is, according to Flemming Christensen, an important part of working with the Enneagram. These are the three pillars of his work, books, teaching and podcasts.

Welcome to this first episode of our International podcast about the Enneagram. We want to bring you great interviews with remarkable people to discuss how the Enneagram can be both a key and a gate into deeper presence and awareness and into strong and healthy relationships.

This interview with Rezzan Huseyin evolved into an interesting conversation, being more a conversation between to Enneagram-enthusiasts, than a formal interview. Based on a new book, “The Enneagram and why your blind type matters” we talked about “blind Enneagram types” and how being blind in one type and not another, shapes our assumptions for us.
In this interview with Russ Hudson, we are talking about why we are searching for meaning and purpose in life. We all need a sense of meaning and purpose in life, and without we will have a greater sense of difficulties, frustrations, pain, and dissatisfaction. With the sense of meaning also comes handling difficulties more
