Each of our Enneagram types works very hard to give us what it thinks we want. In so doing, our type is striving to achieve a certain result; for example, the One is striving to be perfect; the Two is striving to be connected; the Three is striving to be outstanding, and so on. Our type believes that if we can achieve what we are striving for, we will be whole and happy. And we spend a whole lot of our attention and energy seeking that goal.

But, because it is our type that is in charge of the striving, it is a false sense of success when we achieve it, and we may find that not only are we NOT whole and happy, but we are exhausted and depleted. In that striving, we create unnecessary suffering for ourselves, and prevent ourselves from reaching our goal. 

This is one of the paradoxes that humans all suffer. 

Please join us in October and explore how you may be sabotaging your own dearest hopes and creating your own suffering.Enneagram Community.

Enneagram Narrative Core Program

Enneagram Panels

A Monthly Series

South Austin Enneagram Group


If you want more Enneagram, consider attending the Enneagram Narrative Core Program trainings sponsored by Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition (ESNT). Whether you are new to the Enneagram or a long-time student, this program provides a unique, life-changing experience that will deepen your understanding of yourself and others.

The Enneagram Narrative Core Program starts with the Enneagram Intensive 2.0, which is open to all and provides the basis for the other two core courses: Instincts and Subtypes and Deepening Spiritual Awareness. Each of the three courses includes panel interviews in the Narrative Tradition, somatic exercises, and the practice of self-observation and inner awareness. You may begin this program without a commitment to take all three courses.

To view the schedule of classes for the Enneagram Intensive 2.0 and to learn more about the certification program, visit and click on Programs.
