Type 1

Three words come to mind when I think about the impact of the Enneagram in my life — compassion, awareness, and essence. What a relief to discover that my personality is not the essence of who I am, that I can change and grow into who I was created to be. This is an unexpected journey into wholeness and freedom and joy. Compassion — what a surprise, relief, and joy to discover a capacity for compassion (love) for others and for myself.  Awareness — becoming conscious of old ways and habits that I can drop; learning new ways that are in line with the truth of my being; laughing at myself instead of condemning when I blow it. And having a safe place in the workshops with Sue and Cynthia to explore and learn and be accepted and loved.
