How to Win Friends, and Adopt New Ideas

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, María José Munita gives insight into her personal and working life with Seth "Creek" Creekmore and special guest, Lee Fields. She shares what it was like growing up in Santiago, Chile and how it played into her introduction into the Enneagram. She also talks about her time on the IEA board and her collaboration with Mario Sikora.

“So that’s one of the reasons why the ATA approach started making sense to me, because it was a mindset. It’s not just Enneagram theory. It’s a mindset that I really resonate with and like.” -María José [19:27]

“You sort of touched on or what I’m hearing is something around satisfaction. That there’s more freedom or ease or satisfaction with your present and presumably future self than your past self.” -Lee [22:14]

“Our impulse is always to run from the contradictions and uncertainties, and I think it’s those who are voraciously curious, that their curiosity gets the better of them. To like, I think I can manage this a bit longer, and a bit longer and all of the sudden you’re like oh, yeah, this other side isn’t so bad.” -Creek [40:30]
