• Hi Wendy, love this blog entry and the review you posted in the newsletter, both of which emphasize that your practice and your book are about applying the principles of the Enneagram in day-to-day practice, not about glorifying the theory. It’s lovely that you keep your clients focused on the change within, which includes valuing the gifts their personality patterns have given them. This reminds me of Ken Wilbur’s notion that we “transcend and include.”

    • Hi Mary,
      Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have perfectly captured the intent and focus of my work, book, blog and newsletter. The Enneagram is a means, not an end in itself. The idea is to cultivate states of being that can relax the compulsions and open to the gifts. I wasn’t familiar with Ken’s notion, but I love it.

      I know this is also the focus of your work, Mary. I have such gratitude and respect for you as a person and practitioner. Thank you.

    Wendy – Thanks so much for this post. I have been trying to step away from my type a bit more these days, but this post reminds me that it’s okay to embrace the good parts. Honing in on my intentions for embracing or stepping away is really the key to it all. Thanks for the insight!
