What is the Enneagram?
Dr. Manney works with the Enneagram personally and professionally. Personally, she uses it as a map for living an authentic life based in the present moment experience through awareness. This cultivation of awareness can be expressed through the higher centers of the mind, heart and body.
The modern Enneagram is an image composed of 3 superimposed geometric shapes: the circle, triangle, and hexad. These shapes each represent aspects of the human condition such as unity, relationship, and change respectively. Each of the superimposed figures form 9 points on the circle. These points represent archetypes which each have characteristics. These characteristics range from how we forget our truer natures when we become fixated on the personal self to how we live through the opening of our hearts when we remember we have always been connected to Grace.
