It’s no secret that we love the Enneagram, and at Watersedge we take every opportunity to talk about the personality theory. Whenever something new about The Enneagram comes out, we’re the first to find them, and we love sharing them with you! Whether you’re new to the Enneagram or an old hand, here are eight of our favourites resources that are well worth your time.
1. The Typology Podcast
When Ian Cron began a podcast dedicated to the Enneagram earlier this year, we were ecstatic. Every week he interviews someone, or a panel, focusing on a particular Type. Other episodes explore relationship dynamics between different Types, approaching Enneagram sceptics, and chatting to other Enneagram teachers. If you love the Enneagram or simply want to know more, this podcast is gold!
2. The Road Back To You by Ian Morgan Cron
You’ve listened to the Typology Podcast, now what? Ian Cron’s book The Road Back To You is a fascinating and practical take on the Enneagram and how it can shape your life. Connecting it with the holistic spirituality that has shaped it since ancient times, it is well worth your time.
3. The Sacred Enneagram: Finding Your Unique Path to Spiritual Growth by Chris Heuertz
Chris Heuertz teaches the Enneagram to people across the globe, and in this spiritually centred book, he discusses how understanding your Type can transform your spiritual journey. It’s easy to get caught up in caricatures and stereotypes, but Chris moves beyond this and delves into the truth behind our greatest hurts and how we can best show love to others.
4. Sleeping At Last – Atlas Year 2 Enneagram series
Musician Ryan O’Neal is known as Sleeping At Last, and earlier this year he took on an audacious task: he is writing a song for every Type on the Enneagram. A Type 9 himself, Ryan manages to capture the integrity of each Type in his lyrics, music and delivery. His first track One is out now. Two comes out on November 17.
5. The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective by Fr Richard Rohr and Andrea Ebert
Fr Richard Rohr is often viewed as the forerunner of the modern Enneagram movement, and his teaching has shaped the way many people understand the personality theory. If you want to delve into the heart of the Enneagram — and learn from the best of the best — keep a copy of this handy. It’s a great stepping-stone into Fr Rohr’s extensive work about finding and understanding yourself.
