Enneagram trainer Liz West joins us on the show to talk about this ancient tool for transformation. You may have seen the rather “dodgy” looking enneagram symbol, but don’t be put off. This is an ancient treasure that goes right back to the fourth century desert mothers and fathers who began to discern the things that blocked our relationships with ourselves, with others and with God. And that’s what make the enneagram unique. It doesn’t so much reveal who you are, as the coping mechanisms you’ve developed that have become blockages to your transformation.

QUOTES

“I think we are encouraged to live in our outer world – what I think of as our outer world. It’s all about what we’re doing and it’s all about our roles and that seems to define our identity. But there’s so much more to us than our gifts and the way we choose to live. There is this inner world which I think needs exploring and the Enneagram is just one of the many tools to explore it. And the reason why it needs exploring is that there are very serious things in our inner world which get in the way of our relationship with God, with other people; and they cause us pain, which is why the desert fathers called these nine things ‘the passions.’”

“The Enneagram – rather than putting people in a box – actually describes the box that we are already in and helps us to get out of that box.”
