The Enneagram is a model that describes nine different personality types and their interrelationships. The word Enneagram (pronounced "any-a-gram") comes from the Greek word ennea, meaning "nine" and grammos, meaning "model". No one of the types is better or worse than any other. Each type has its own way of viewing life, its own mental and emotional preoccupations, and its own talents and abilities.
The best way of learning the Enneagram is by directly experiencing and listening to the people who inhabit the nine types. We, therefore, offer this material in the Oral Narrative Tradition in which knowledgeable people of each of the types speak about their lives. By listening to their stories the student learns the dominant traits of each of the types, the issues that preoccupy them, the world view each holds, their character motivations, how they deal with interpersonal and work relationships, and what kind of support would be most helpful to them.
The system is complex, elegant, and sophisticated with the symbol containing interconnecting lines which indicate a dynamic movement between aspects of type when a person is under stress or when feeling secure. The system offers understandings about both the uniqueness of individuals and the similarities among the types. It is an excellent tool for growth at many levels, providing a beneficial study for healthy and high functioning individuals.
In addition, we are at a time in the world when understanding diversity among people and groups is of vital importance. Because the world looks very different to each of the nine types, we have the opportunity to experience and appreciate this diversity and come to a truer understanding of who people really are, rather than what our ideas about them might lead us to believe. Relationships with family members, people with whom we work, friends and acquaintances, take on new meaning. In the process our own lives are enriched.
