Because of our desire to share this deeper freedom – a freedom that each of us has known and continue to experience through this particular way of exploring the Enneagram – we created Heart of the Enneagram. Starting with a podcast that explores each of the nine types by inviting personal narratives from people who have discovered the power of this tool, we also decided to create a companion book to support a deeper engagement with the Enneagram.
The Heart of the Enneagram podcast and companion book are intended for those who already have some familiarity with the Enneagram and their type. If you find this podcast and companion book helpful in your personal and spiritual growth, please encourage others to subscribe to the podcast and purchase a copy of the book. As you listen, read, and reflect on the power of the Enneagram through the Heart of the Enneagram podcast and companion book, we invite you to look courageously and lovingly at what is.
