Self-Awareness isn't Enough

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore discuss how self-awareness isn’t enough with the Enneagram. The Enneagram can be a tool to create change, but it has to be used for action. The three hosts discuss why we should use this tool to give us the capacity to observe not only our patterns but others’ patterns so that we can develop skills that are more intentional and skillful in other areas.

“The Enneagram is a tool for creating self-awareness, but then it has to be used for action. It has to be used for creating change.” -Mario [02:29]

“If we have a line of doors, self-awareness is the key to unlock a door of a path we want to go down, and the more we unlock it, the more likely it is to stay open by itself.” -Creek [14:47]

“When there’s no cost to continuing as we are, why change?” -María José [27:03]
