Books and Practices for Wisdom and Personal Mastery

The Enneagram

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”

- Aristotle

 

Self-knowledge is fundamental for personal growth. The Enneagram is a great self-awareness tool for deeper understanding of oneself, and includes the gifts of each type, the motivations that drive behaviors, the basic fear or desire, and a path for transcendence.  It consists of nine personality types detailed in a nine-point diagram.  The nine types are often referred to as the essence of each type:

 

Type 1: The Reformer                                    Type 2: The Helper                             Type 3: The Achiever                                     Type 4: The Individualist  

Type 5: The Investigator                               Type 6: The Loyalist

Type 7: The Enthusiast                                 Type 8: The Challenger

Type 9: The Peacemaker

I highly recommend learning about the Enneagram to help you understand and recognize your personality patterns and put you on the path to move into the highest version of yourself.
