The Enneagram: Why?
Posted by Simon Parke, 22 May 2017, 3.31pm
Today, I start out on another Enneagram retreat.
Always quite an adventure.
I might use this image early on.
You own a house, but it’s some distance away.
You visit it occasionally to make sure it’s OK…no broken windows or leaking pipes, basic stuff.
And you have quite a good idea of its outline details, enough to draw a rough plan for an estate agent.
But you’ve never lived in it nor made it your home.
That would be quite a step.
The Enneagram is about taking that step, moving in…it’s about melting the distance.
It’s about coming home to ourselves and inhabiting ourselves more consciously, with more awareness and therefore, more kindness.
If the Enneagram isn’t that, it isn’t anything.
