Talking About Spirituality and the Enneagram

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore discuss the use of the Enneagram alongside spirituality traditions. They first dive into the background and traditions brought into the Enneagram community, and what spirituality means to them. They are frequently asked why they don’t talk about spirituality in their work, so the hosts share why they don’t talk about certain aspects of it, but also why it doesn’t mean what they do is not spiritual.

“So I think just doing this work pushes us to cultivate wisdom. To try and understand human behavior, try to understand the world around us, try to understand ourselves, and then glean lessons from that that we can use. Knowledge is just knowing things. Wisdom is applying it.” -Mario [22:37]

“If the Enneagram is a tool, it can be used in a lot of different scenarios. And that doesn’t mean that just because I have a hammer doesn’t mean I’m a carpenter, also doesn’t mean I’m an auto mechanic, but they can both be used in those situations.” -Creek [33:47]

“We’re not trying to be seen as spiritual, but we’re trying to convey these skills, and a lot of people see that and appreciate that.” -María José [36:50]
