Addiction and Recovery with the Enneagram, feat. Nate Larkin and David Hampton [S02-035]
What are you addicted to? I don’t believe there is one person on this planet who isn’t addicted to something. And when I say addiction, I don’t necessarily mean addiction to substances. Addiction is a compulsion to continue doing something despite harmful consequences. And if we look at addiction through the lens of the Enneagram, we can view the passion of each type as an addiction.
The Enneagram helps bring to awareness what these unconscious addictions and compulsions are so we can start to unwind the influence and power they have over our lives. In other words, we can move into recovery from the worst side of our type.
So, in today’s episode, we talk about each Enneagram type’s compulsion and what recovery (or sobriety) for that type looks like.
