Enneagram is an archetypal depth psychology. It has enormous power to deepen our insight into ourselves and others. As a follow-up to our last TNS conversation with author and enneagram expert Beatrice Chestnut, we offered a three-part series of workshops to explore enneagram further in depth. Each workshop features a three- to five-person panel of enneagram “types.”
