What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram (pronounced ANY-a-gram) is an ancient tool that describes nine distinct ways of thinking, feeling and acting in the world. Without even noticing, these nine patterns of being influence our life, our love, and our work. Through these online courses and understanding the Enneagram, we have the opportunity to move from predictable patterns toward a more full and present life.

Type 3

"I'm going to appreciate exactly where I am and what is happening in this moment, which doesn't come naturally to me."

Type 4
