The Enneagram is an ancient system of wisdom encoded into a nine pointed symbol. Each layer of the symbol has meaning, which Beatrice & Uranio teach in the program.
But here’s the gist:
The Enneagram looks at human functioning based on three centers of intelligence: head, heart, and body.
Head types focus on traditional, modern descriptions of intelligence and thinking
Heart types focus on emotion, feeling and wanting connection
Body types focus on gut knowing, kinesthetic intelligence, whether to take action
Within these three centers of intelligence are three different type patterns of how you live within that center of intelligence.
3 centers X 3 type patterns = 9 Types.
Once you find your type (the center of intelligence and the type patterns of how you live within that center), you get A LOT of information quickly:
— Insights about why you do what you do
— Patterns of attention
— Where you place your focus (and what to avoid)
…and you learn how you can use this information in personal growth.
