We use the personality theory of the Enneagram all the time in our practice to help people better understand their friends, family and colleagues. So, we get very excited when a book comes out with a focus on how understanding our own personality type can help us to better relate to others!
The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships, by Suzanne Stabile, dives into the inner working of each personality ‘Type’ and how they respond and react to one another. In addition, for readers rooted in the Christian religious tradition where the Enneagram has become a part of spiritual practice, the diary gives you the tools to develop spiritual growth.
If you haven’t caught up with the Enneagram buzz, let us give you a brief 101. The Enneagram is a personality theory, which characterises humanity into nine personality types. Obviously, no one person is the same, but each ‘Type,’ is defined by their core motivation, giving us the ability to better know ourselves in health, weakness, and how we can better relate to others.
Suzanne Stabile is a world-renowned Enneagram teacher, who learned under Fr Richard Rohr. She regularly holds seminars on the Enneagram for personal, spiritual and leadership development. The beauty of this book and diary is that it gives you the space to process the teachings of the Enneagram without paying big bucks to do it. As Susan says, “You can’t change how you see. You can only change what you do with how you see.”
If you are wanting to learn more about the Enneagram – whether it be through Stabile’s best-selling book or one of a plethora of other resources out there (there are even Instagram accounts connected to it now!), then the diary gives you the focused space to process, question and analyse at your pace. Rather than just jumping on a bandwagon, it gives you permission to explore the ancient spiritual theory yourself and ultimately find what you can learn from it.
