Note: This episode was recorded on March 13, 2020, just as the coronavirus began to impact our daily lives. While we did not discuss any emotional concerns over this growing pandemic, the issue of how the Enneagram helps us discover the true self appears more vital in today's dire circumstance.
There is such an emotional relief when we feel as if our authentic self is fully recognized. For some, it's about finding a place of peace. For others it's about discovering strengths and limitations. Either way, we learn to interpret the world and our role in it. In today's episode, The Rev. Burl Salmon, director of pastoral care and outreach at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida, reminds us that the goal of the Enneagram is to grow into The True Self.
