  This is the first book to offer specific, practical methods for psychological and spiritual growth to each of the nine personality types. It integrates precise knowledge of the nine types with wisdom teachings from a variety of spiritual sources around the world, including Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Sufism, and Fourth Way Teachings. 

 This book presents the Enneagram as ‘a map of the soul,’ laying out the path each type can take from the outer layers of the personality to the inner core of its True Nature. Most importantly, Wisdom demonstrates how the Enneagram can be used to develop Presence and awareness, without which, meaningful spiritual development is not possible.

  “No Enneagram teachers I’ve come across offer such a rich and dynamic picture of how each personality type expresses itself in the world, and the process by which we can move through progressive stages of psychological and spiritual growth.”

  Tony Schwartz, author of What Really Matters: Searching for Wisdom in America. “I have just reread your book, Personality Types, and focused on the Levels, directions, and the relationship to parental object relations.

 Your work is a magnificent contribution and I have been integrating this information into my lectures on personality disorders as they play out in conflict in the courts in child custody cases. I am deeply grateful for the way you have precisely enlanguaged the interface of psyche, soul, and defense structure.” Dr. Joseph Pirone, Professor and Family Therapist, Suffern, NY
