The author of the bestselling The Road Back to You reveals how to use the power of the Enneagram—the ancient personality typing system—to overwrite the negative, outdated stories you tell yourself to ultimately become your true self.
In this powerful, transformative guide, Ian Morgan Cron demonstrates the life-changing power of the Enneagram. Cron challenges you to rethink the stale stories you tell yourself about who you are and offers lessons in using the Enneagram to help you change your story. As you free your mind from the outdated messages you learned in childhood and master your Enneagram profile, you unlock your own inner power for spiritual growth—and, ultimately, for becoming the true self God meant for you to be.
Drawing on his extensive counseling and personal experience, Cron examines each of the nine personality types and explains step by step how each can find happiness by understanding their origin story, harnessing your type’s strengths, acknowledging weaknesses, and creating space for an incredible—and more positive—new reality.
