The Enneagram is a 4,000-year old system that can be traced back to the early Greeks. It offers a deeper understanding of ourselves so we can recognize our False Self and encounter our True Self in God. The Enneagram describes nine distinct personality types—patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting—by which people see life. Our basic type reveals the psychological mechanism we unknowingly use to forget our true nature—our Divine Essence.
The Enneagram works by insight. Once we see our False Self for what it is, we are no longer attached to it and it no longer blocks us from realizing our inherent union with God. We eventually realize our gift and integrate our sin, shadow, and all that we reject about ourselves.
The Enneagram is not about self-improvement. Rather, it is about the transformation of our awareness so that we realize that essence is our True Self.
