046: Is the Enneagram a Foreign Language?

When it comes to the Enneagram, it can feel like being immersed in a foreign language! There are types, subtypes, wings, arrows, Harmony Triads, and several different models! 

On this episode of the podcast, I've invited the REALIFE Process® Team's resident wordsmith, Erica Vinson, to join me as we dive into the language of the Enneagram.  

Together we'll talk through: 

  • Terms you may hear as you explore the tool for self-discovery
  • Both the psychological and spiritual aspects of the Enneagram
  • The power of naming both our authentic gifts and adaptive vices
  • REALIFE Enneagram moments to practice harmony

Although different Enneagram professionals and teachers use a variety of language, often the meaning of the terms is similar. 

The more familiar we become with the terms, the more the words come together to make meaning and harmony to help us access the best parts of our whole self wisdom–head, heart, and gut! 

Make sure to listen all the way to the end of the podcast to hear about an EXTRAORDINARY Moment the REALIFE Process® Team recently shared as we talked about the Enneagram with Chad Jeffers and Mark Childers as band members out on Carrie Underwood's Cry Pretty Tour 360!
