Crash Course on the Nine Types of the EnneagramAug 09, 2021
This is for anyone new to the Enneagram (think ANY-a-gram if you're not sure how to pronounce it) or anyone who's wanting to brush up on their Enneagram wisdom to continue to learn about themselves and the other types that your important relationships may be.
You'll learn not only the core fear and core desires that make a type that type, but also learn the different conflict styles, the different energies the types bring to getting their needs met, where they make decisions from, strengths and struggles, and a healing message for unlearning unhealthy thoughts.
Below are the cliff notes to jog your memory after you listen if you need reminding of which type is which. After you listen, I'd love to hear which type(s) most resonated with you! Email me [email protected] or over on Instagram at @enneagrammba and drop me a note!
