27 Paths in Life and Subtypes in Relationship

Available in English, Spanish and French

"The great value of the Enneagram is to bring self-awareness about our personality type and subtype so we make more informed choices about where and how we spend our attention and energy in daily life. How do automatic patterns and scripts control us? How does our path in life represent our true selves? How can we discern what is authentic and what is not? At the meeting of spirit and biology, the study of instinctual subtypes helps us to engage the process of individuation and break free of the box of our conditioning. At the same time it supports us in honoring our own personal story and the stories of the people in our lives."

This handbook describes the 27 instinctual subtypes and focuses on the three subtype groups self preservation, one-to-one, and social and their issues in relationships, with descriptions and practical suggestions for the six relationship combinations.
