Learning about the Enneagram was a light-bulb moment, or rather many moments for me, in my self-discovery and becoming.
The Enneagram, like no other personality assessment I know, challenges a person to face “their stuff”. It’s a brutally honest lens, or mirror really, that allows a person to understand their core needs and fears and how that drives one’s behaviour.
It’s not all bad news however, the Enneagram also provides a hopeful pathway, marking the trail to growth and transformation for your particular “type”. Want to know how to be a better partner and parent? Want to understand why you keep getting stuck in the same ruts of behaviour and thinking? The Enneagram can help.
In these two episodes I interview a personal friend and Enneagram Coach & Facilitator Livingston Lacroix.
In part one, after a brief chat about leaving our church traditions and finding a more honest expression of religion and belief in our lives, we dive into an introduction of the Enneagram.
Liv gives a brief overview of the system of 9 numbers, wings, and subtypes. (It’s not a cult, honest.)
Then she guides us through an in-depth discussion of Types 1 through 4 explaining the needs, focus, issues, and fears of each type.
We have a good time discussing Type 4 in particular, since we’re both special that way. Listen to the interview, you’ll understand what I mean.
Join me in this episode with Livingston Lacroix as we talk all things Enneagram, and buckle up for some honest self-assessment.
