The Evolution of the Ego and the Enneagram. With Jessica Dibb.

August 20, 2015

Each of us has an Ego. We tend to project a manufactured self-image characterized by the roles we play, masks we wear, labels we acquire and images we devise. It is not our true self, our essence. Not knowing our true self keeps us off-balance, ungrounded and insecure. How can we understand our moments of indecision, poor choices, and self-undoing behaviors, which by default often become our path? The ancient Greeks interest in “Knowing Thyself” and developing the human psyche gave rise to what is known today as the Enneagram. Often described as a personality typing system, it illuminates our core issues and motivations, our imbalances, and the ways we tend to cope with life. Our guest Jessica Dibb is an expert in the magical and transformational workings of the Enneagram. Learn about the basic personality types and directions of growth and deterioration each takes. Understanding ourselves through the Enneagram, we can live with more freedom, operating from Essence instead of Ego.
