On last week’s episode of Typology, I had an amazing conversation with my friend, Fr. Richard Rohr, renowned Enneagram expert and Franciscan Priest, and Executive Director for the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  We discussed the difference between the true-self and the false-self and explained how the Enneagram can guide us on our journey toward identifying our own true-self.

This week on Typology, Richard and I continue that conversation.  Today, we talk about how we can use the Enneagram on a daily basis as a framework, or a blueprint, for spiritual formation.  Richard also offers words of encouragement and caution for each Enneagram type. 

For more enriching wisdom from Richard visit the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) and sign up for the daily email that goes out with all kinds of wonderful wisdom and thoughts from Richard. You can also buy a few of Richard’s books.  A few of my favorites are The Naked Now, Breathing Under Water, Falling Upward, and Immortal Diamond.

There’s a self that’s bigger and it’s more solid, and most of all, it’s a shared self. Once you find your absolute special-ness, your absolute dignity, you don’t have to waste a lot of time trying to assert it yourself.
