Why We Still Use the Enneagram (and Listener Questions)

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore answer a listener's question on why they still use the Enneagram. They share how they use the Enneagram in their own lives and why they teach it and do things with it. Each host also discusses how the Enneagram has helped them evolve into the person they are today.

“Look, I still have work to do, and the Enneagram is a really good tool for that. It’s not the only tool. And I think again, we really have to be careful about making a religion or a whole philosophy out of the Enneagram, because as we’ve been talking about it, it’s insufficient for that, but the things that it does really, really well are worth keeping around.” -Mario [21:05]

“The better way to define a problem, the more useful or the easier it would be to find a good solution for it, and I think the Enneagram provides these good frameworks to define problems. Not every problem, but a lot of problems.” -María José [34:43]

“Honestly, the Enneagram came into my life at a point where I really needed some structure of how to move about in reality. And admittedly, I probably clinged on to it a little too tightly, but when you’re in a desperate situation, you cling on to what works. So how the Enneagram has helped me is just constantly making me question my reality than what I perceive to be reality.” -Creek [23:30]
