publication of this book in 2000 brought to the burgeoning
genre of enneagram books one of its most penetrating and
spiritually grounded voices. This book became a classic
of its kind, finding its way into multiple printings and
the hearts and minds of thousands of readers — without
exposure from the mainstream organs of media.
One of the first books to explore in an authentic and comprehensive
way the original spiritual context of the enneagram, it
shows how the enneagram not only reveals the egoic underpinnings
of our personality structure, but when understood more deeply
can help us contact our fundamental nature. This book illucidates
how traversing the inner territory particular to our ennea-type
can lead to profound fulfillment and meaning, as well as
authentic spiritual realization.
