Enneagram & Essence of Truth

Presented by Swami Purnananda

“When we were in our formative years, we had to respond to the demands that came from our parents. In forming a strategy, we developed a compulsion based drive that formed the corner stone of our personality and a habitual response to life. The Enneagram postulates that this presents 9 personality types and it provides a systematic map of them. By understanding our type we can grow and by understanding other types, we have the means to understand and empathize with them.”

Swami Purnananda

“Understanding the persona, or mask is one thing, but real growth occurs from the realization of the Truth that sits behind the mask and being attuned to that. The course interweaves both of these aspects and provides the basis for genuine change and development."
